According to a report in the New York Times on Friday, New York state prosecutors have interviewed Aon PLC employees in connection with an investigation into President Trump.

Citing “people with knowledge of the matter” the publication reported that the interviews were in connection with an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. into Mr. Trump’s conduct as a private business owner and whether he or employees at the Trump Organization committed financial crimes.

Aon confirmed that it had received a subpoena from Mr. Vance. “We can confirm that we received a subpoena from the office of the Manhattan District Attorney. As is our policy, we intend to cooperate with all regulatory bodies. We do not comment on specific client matters,” a spokeswoman for the brokerage said in an emailed statement. 

A spokesman for Mr. Vance declined to comment on the report.

Earlier this year Mr. Vance suggested a grand jury subpoena for Mr. Trump’s tax returns was part of an investigation of possible criminal conduct, including alleged insurance and bank fraud.

According to the New York Times article, employees at Deutsche Bank are also being interviewed. Neither company is suspected of wrongdoing, the article said.
