Elizabeth Warren Reveals DNA Evidence of Native American Ancestry, Rebuking Trump

Share

Warren has released the results of a DNA analysis showing she has distant Native American ancestry in an apparent attempt to pre-empt further questions and attacks should she run for president in 2020.

Warren's purported Native American heritage was touted by Harvard Law School when she was a professor there.

That forefather - or foremother - could have been between six and 10 generations ago, according to Carlos D. Bustamante, a Stanford University professor who analyzed the results.

"Native Americans have faced discrimination, neglect and violence for generations", she says in the video.

His wife, reality TV star Kim Kardashian West , has worked with the White House on criminal justice reform and clemency issues. The freaky meeting, laden with F-bombs, hugs and rambling monologues, was broadcast live by a number of media outlets.

The amount won't matter to liberal Democrats. His calculation: Her "pure Native American ancestor" appeared "in the range of 6-10 generations ago", which would track with her family lore that her great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was at least part-Native American.

Bustamante, who won a 2010 MacArthur fellowship, also known as a Genius Grant, found that the "vast majority" of Warren's ancestry is European, but "the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor".

After that Montana debate, Warren brushed off Trump's taunts as she had multiple times before, whenever he deployed his derisive "Pocahontas" nickname for her. "I know it. Other people who work with her know it."=. I do not think she'd be hard at all, she'd destroy our country.

The video, which points to a new section of Warren's website dedicated to facts about her heritage, begins with images of the senator returning to meet her brothers in Norman, Oklahoma, where she was raised, as audio of Trump mocking her as a "fake Pocahontas" rings out on the soundtrack. Regardless, the remarkable trajectory of her career - which took her from being a young mother attending a commuter college to Harvard Law to the Senate - was a product of her own talents, grit, and luck, not her ethnic self-identification. She can't prove anything, ' he said Thursday.

That probably won't stop Mr Trump's attacks, but it will allow her to deflect the barbs and move on to what could be the top issues of an increasingly less hypothetical run - income inequality and government ethics reform. But I have none'.

On Monday, Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to Trump, told CNN that the video was "odd" and wrote off the DNA results.
