Probes into former President Donald Trump's business dealings are heating up, and the Manhattan District Attorney's Office is looking to conduct new interviews with one of the president's former personal attorneys.

The New York Daily News reports that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was interviewed by Manhattan DA Cy Vance's team last week about the president's dealings with Deutsche Bank, which has for decades been the only major investment bank willing to lend him money.

The DA's office also "plans to interview Michael Cohen again as part of his investigation into allegations that former President Donald Trump has committed a range of financial fraud."

Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in arranging an illegal hush-money scheme involving adult film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

After being sentenced, Cohen testified before the House of Representatives that Trump fraudulently undervalued his assets to get out of paying taxes, while at times fraudulently overvaluing his assets in order to get important loans.
