Maryanne Trump Barry investigation ends with her retirement: New York Times

.....President Donald Trump's older sister, federal appellate Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, has retired -- halting an investigation into whether she broke judicial conduct rules by committing tax fraud, The New York Times reported Wednesday, citing copies of the decision provided by two complainants.

The investigation was prompted by a New York Times bombshell report last fall indicating that the Trump family had participated in tax schemes to maximize Trump, Barry and their siblings' inheritances. Barry, whom the Times found to be an active participant and beneficiary in the schemes, filed her retirement papers 10 days after court officials notified complainants that the matter was "receiving the full attention" of a judicial conduct council, according to the paper.

An inactive judge for over two years, Barry no longer faces the judicial misconduct charge as the statute only applies to active judges, according to the Times. The decision has not yet been publicly announced, but the complainants -- at least two them linked to the legal profession -- learned last week that the case had been dropped without conclusions on the allegations, the paper reported.

While she previously risked rebuke, punishment or even impeachment from the judicial council review's investigation, she is now entitled to a retirement salary that could range from $184,500 to $217,600, the Times reported.

Barry did not respond to the Times' requests for comment.

President Ronald Reagan selected Barry, a former prosecutor, to serve on the Federal District Court in New Jersey in 1983. President Bill Clinton nominated her to United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1999.

True, and the rest of the Trump Crime Family skate because of the statute of limitations.
