Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who is gearing up for a potential 2020 presidential bid, has released a DNA test that suggests she has a distant Native American ancestor, part of an extraordinary effort to discredit President Trump and others who have questioned her claims about her heritage. A report distributed by Warren concludes that there is “strong evidence” that the senator had a Native American in her family tree dating back six to 10 generations. The test results, after first being reported by the Boston Globe, were widely distributed to reporters Monday morning by Warren’s Senate campaign committee, along with a video on her upbringing and a link to a new “fact squad” website that seeks to debunk critics of her heritage. The DNA analysis, by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor, concludes … [Read more...] about Stanford professor, DNA expert says Elizabeth Warren has Native American ancestry

Barack Obama’s former campaign manager and deputy chief of staff Jim Messina ripped Senator Elizabeth Warren for releasing a DNA test in an attempt to refute President Donald Trump’s claims about her ethnicity. “Argue the substance all you want, but why 22 days before a crucial election where we MUST win house and senate to save America, why did @SenWarren have to do her announcement now?” Messina tweeted hours after Warren released her test results. “Why can’t Dems ever stay focused???” The Massachusetts lawmaker released an analysis of her DNA to prove that she is of Native-American descent, with Trump and many other Republicans have mocked her for supposedly being less indigenous than she claims. The president even jokingly refers to her as “Pocahontas.” However, Warren’s lineage results have caused more controversy, as a Stanford professor and 23 and Me adviser found that the Democratic … [Read more...] about Former Obama Campaign Manager: Why Did Elizabeth Warren Release DNA Test Now, This Close to Midterms?
President Donald Trump spoke to reporters briefly outside the White House on Monday as he prepared to depart for Florida to view the hurricane damage, and among several questions, was asked about Sen. Elizabeth Warren revealing the results of a DNA test showing some Native American heritage in her family tree. Trump, who refers to Warren as “Pocahontas” and seemed to previously offer a million dollars to charity if she were to prove that lineage via DNA test, when asked about it said, “who cares?” A reporter asked him if he had any reaction to “Senator Elizabeth Warren releasing the results of her DNA test”, and as the reporter spoke, Trump jumped in to say “no, I don’t — who cares?” The reporter then began a follow-up, saying “Mr. President you said you’d offer one million dollars to charity if she–” After a question about Saudi Arabia, he was asked about Warren running for president. “I hope … [Read more...] about Trump Denies Million Dollar Charity Offer for Elizabeth Warren DNA Test: ‘I Didn’t Say That’
Senator Elizabeth Warren has been derided by President Donald Trump and his conservative media lackeys over allegations that she claimed Native American heritage to help her career. Today she fought back on that by releasing a short campaign-style film that documents her familial and ancestry heritage and shows results of a DNA test that confirms she has Native American ancestry. In a campaign rally last summer, Trump notably ridiculed Warren’s claim and suggested that if she were to prove her Native American ancestry with a DNA test, he would donate $1 million to her favorite charity. The political rally was held in Montana in early July and the Commander in Chief foretold a potential political debate between him and future presidential candidate Warren, then mocked the #MeToo movement by suggesting he’d carefully toss a $2 DNA test kit to the senator if she were to agree to take it. Trump then said, “And we will say, ‘I will give you $1 million to your … [Read more...] about Now That Elizabeth Warren Took a DNA Test, Does Trump Owe $1 Million to Charity?
Senator Elizabeth Warren has been consistently derided by President Donald Trump as “Pocahontas” because of claims she had made about having ancestry from indigenous Native American people. But a recent analysis of her DNA done by a Stanford University professor reveals that she IS part Native American. The Boston Globe reports: The analysis of Warren’s DNA was done by Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor and expert in the field who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a genius grant, for his work on tracking population migration via DNA analysis. He concluded that “the vast majority” of Warren’s ancestry is European, but he added that “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.” Bustamante calculated that Warren’s pure Native American ancestor appears in her family tree “in the range of 6-10 generations ago.” That timing fits Warren’s … [Read more...] about Elizabeth Warren DNA Test Findings: Turns Out She’s Part Native American
