CNBC provides additional details on the life of Maryanne Trump Barry:
Barry was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1999 by then-President Bill Clinton. She largely avoided the spotlight that was constantly pointed at her brother, first as a television host and business personality and then as the president of the United States.
She spent two decades on the Philadelphia-based appeals court before retiring in the midst of a civil misconduct investigation related to her family’s alleged tax-dodging schemes.
