Elizabeth Warren releases DNA results showing she has Native American heritage.
Warren has faced attacks from President Donald Trump over her claims that she has Native American ancestry. In July, he challenged Warren to take a DNA test.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has faced repeated ridicule from President Donald Trump over her claims that she has Native American ancestry, has released a DNA test that says there is "strong evidence" that she is of Native American descent.

The Massachusetts Democrat's release of the test highlights how prepared she is to take on Trump — who has repeatedly referred to her as "Pocahontas" — over his insults and indicates she is working to shore up possible political weaknesses, ahead of a possible 2020 presidential run, by addressing her family background and charges that she misrepresented it to gain unfair advantage in her career.

 
 

The release of Warren's DNA test was first reported by The Boston Globe, which obtained news of the results before they were released by the senator.

The test, conducted by Stanford University professor Carlos Bustamante, a genetics and genomics expert, concludes that there is "strong evidence" that Warren's "DNA sample of primarily European descent also contains Native American ancestry from an ancestor in the sample's pedigree 6-10 generations ago," according the test's executive summary.

Goodness, 6 to 10 generations ago?? You could probably trace George Custer’s family lineage back that far and find some evidence of American Indian in his DNA.

I noticed you didn’t post what the Cherokee nation said about Warren and her claim to be part Indian. Check it out.

This issue is a Loser for Warren - the Cherokee Nation has already condemned her for trying

to associate herself with them through of all things a DNA test that predicts she's 0.03 percent Native American

 

She's playing right into Trumps hands - she tried to quiet him about her claims and all she ended up doing was giving him a - well your not enough Indian & the Cherokees say it's so

 

 


She didn't take the DNA test to gain tribal affiliation with Cherokee Nation.

 

Since the results of her DNA test prove that she does, in fact, have Native American heritage, LOTUS needs to make the $1M donation to her chosen charity.

I don't mind her releasing her test results now.  I believe her point is what is he HIDING.  As she said, if Dems take back the House they will expose him.  That imo would be a good start to actually getting some - good for the country - work done.  His repeated "who cares" needs to be answered.


YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!

So now that Senator Warren has established that there is American Indian heritage in her bloodline (regardless of how far back it may be), Donald Trump has become not only a liar for refusing to make good on his vowed gift of one million dollars, he's now become an "Indian Giver" as well.  He offered her something and then took it back--saying he never made the offer when he did it on film.

jimc91:   President Trump has kept more of his campaign promises that any other president in my lifetime.  

 

 

Then why are they so hard to find, and why aren't Republicans campaigning on them? Trump and the others are doing nothing but make up stories of Democratic mob violence and fear mongering. Political parties with achievements to brag about don't do that.

So, trump calls Warren and Stormy names, and did so again today. It does prove something, that trump has the maturity level of a 5th grade playground bully. Our nation sees this, the world sees this...is this one of his accomplishments?

By the way, mob rule, watch a trump rally!

"I took this test and released the results for anyone who cares to see because I've got nothing to hide," she tweeted. "What are you hiding (Donald Trump?)"

 

The senator added that if the president fails to release his tax returns and Democrats win control of the U.S. House next month, lawmakers "will do it for (him) soon enough."

"Tick-tock, Mr. President," she said.
