Citigroup Inc. received a subpoena on Jan. 27 from the U.S. Department of Justice amid state and federal investigations into the bank’s role in creating mortgage-backed securities.

The bank has also received other subpoenas and requests for information during the inquiries, the New York-based company said in its annual regulatory filing today.

The Justice Department held a news conference that same day in January, describing a new U.S. government unit that will investigate misconduct in the bundling of loans into securities that may have fueled 2008’s credit crisis. The department subpoenaed 11 financial firms in the days beforehand, Attorney General Eric Holder said at the time.
