Trump’s sister leaves bench amid inquiry

-

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump’s sister has retired as a federal appeals judge in Philadelph­ia, ending a civil misconduct inquiry launched after a report that she participat­ed in Trump family schemes to dodge taxes.

A judicial panel had begun the review in response to four citizen complaints filed in October after The New York Times published a story alleging that the president and his siblings evaded inheritanc­e taxes. An April 1 order said the voluntary Feb. 11 retirement of Maryanne Trump Barry, 82, ended the review.

Scott Shuchart, an attorney who filed one of the complaints, said he was “absolutely disappoint­ed.” “If the Times story is correct, then she participat­ed in a decadeslon­g multimilli­ondollar tax fraud,” he said.
