If Trump is looking for somebody to blame for the NYT story revealing that his daddy gave him 413 million he need look no further than his own sister.

Talk about an awkward Thanksgiving.

President Donald Trump’s older sister, Judge Maryanne Trump Barry, has kept a very low profile since he ran for office. But it appears as though she inadvertently had a central role in The New York Times blockbuster report on her brother’s alleged tax schemes.

According to the Times, one of their key findings was a financial disclosure form from Barry’s Senate confirmation proceedings in 1999 to be a federal appellate judge. This financial form was not redacted, and Times reporter Susanne Craig, one of the three reporters who broke the story, noticed an oddity in the filing — a $1 million contribution from a Trump family-owned company called All County Building Supply & Maintenance.

Craig, along with reporters David Barstow and Russ Buettner, began to investigate the company. People familiar with family patriarch Fred Trump told them that All County was a “middleman entity created by President Trump and his siblings essentially to move cash from Fred Trump’s companies to his children,” the Times said.

After the company purchased items for Trump buildings such as cleaning supplies, the Times notes that a secretary would bill these “items to Fred Trump’s buildings with a 20% to 50% markup,” and the siblings would “pocket the difference.” The siblings received millions in untaxed gifts from their father, skirting a 55% tax on gifts over a certain value that would have cut the total significantly, the Times reported.

That revelation, of course, led to the New York Times story which revealed that Trump owes virtually all of his success to his father’s handouts and that the family used complicated tax schemes to defraud the government. 

That makes Trump look like a fraud, but it may look even worse for his sister:

Barry, along with President Trump and their younger brother, Robert, were the executors of their father’s estate, and in that capacity filed his tax returns 15 months after his death in 1999, the Times notes.

The judge’s involvement in the practices outlined in the Times story is unclear. However, as one of the executors of her late father’s estate, she and her brothers were responsible for verifying the accuracy of his estate tax return, which the Times notes “vividly illustrates the effectiveness of the tax strategies devised by the Trumps in the early 1990s.”

As the Times points out the statue of limitations has long since past for any criminal liability, but there could still be civil suits filed by the state of New York that could cost the family many millions, and devastate their reputations. 

I swear this Trump presidency may the worst idea anybody ever had.

    Again – there’s the ignorant waiting for salvation, and the arrogant/demagogues preying on them.

    Both sis and drumpf should be held accountable, the brother was a drunk due to don and mary committing crimes. He ultimately died from don being a crook and liar.

    I haven’t read the article, does anyone know if Fred Trump was aware of this scheme or was he already suffering from dementia, or was this done solely by his rotten kids?

      Daddy was a crook on his own so I am sure he would have approved of the scheme.

    Meanwhile the moron in chief is now claiming Dr. Ford’s story was a hoax, which leaves me to believe they had more info and know she is telling the truth. He also has become more delusional stating that Democrats are going to vote for republicans in NOV because of brett.

    Whoa is he is for a surprise. Good let them think that and the republicans will sit home.

    Also Dr. Ford still hasn’t been able to return to her home because of death threats. Not surprised when you have the idiot in the WH throwing gas on the fire.
