NEW YORK (Reuters) – A lawyer for Donald Trump said committees controlled by House Democrats have agreed to provide “substantial portions” of subpoenas issued to Deutsche Bank AG and Capital One Financial Corp for the president’s financial records.

In a letter filed on Wednesday in Manhattan federal court, Patrick Strawbridge, who also represents Trump’s three adult children and his company, withdrew his clients’ request that the committees turn over the subpoenas.
The letter prompted U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos to cancel a scheduled May 9 hearing on the matter, which Strawbridge said was no longer necessary.
