Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating a controversial deal that producer Harvey Weinstein made to funnel some proceeds from an auction for AIDS charity amfAR to a nonprofit theater where he had staged a show.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan has subpoenaed financial records and emails from amfAR related to the 2015 benefit, two sources with knowledge of the subpoena told NBC News. Prosecutors declined to comment on the probe, which was first reported by The New York Times.

“We were told unequivocally that we are neither a subject nor a target of the investigation — we are a witness,” amfAR board chairman Kenneth Cole, the shoe designer, told NBC News on Friday.
