Elizabeth Warren DNA analysis points to Native American heritage

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass. gestures while speaking at the National Press Club in Washington Tuesday Aug. 21 2018. Warren wants a lifetime ban on members of Congress from getting hired as lobbyists after they leave public office. She also wants

When a reporter confronted President Trump on Monday over his pledge to donate $1 million to charity if Sen.

Warren released a video showing the results of a DNA test, which shows she nearly certainly has Native American ancestry, and co-host Sunny Hostin lamented that the senator felt compelled to undergo that process. "I have a feeling she will say no, but we will hold it for the debates".

The president has consistently ridiculed Ms. Warren as "Pocahontas" for claiming Native American ancestry, falsely in his view, to gain an advantage in her academic career.

Harvard University's decision to hire Warren as a law professor in the 1990s was not based on any assertion that she has Native American heritage, The Globe found.

'She faked her heritage for years and used that.

The analysis on the Massachusetts Democrat was done by Stanford University professor Carlos D. Bustamante.

"The president likes to call my mom a liar", Warren tells Bustamante.

That meshes with Warren's narrative that her great-great-great-grandmother, O.C. Sarah Smith, was at least partially Native American.

Ramsey has no plans to force early Arsenal exit
In recent years, the club have allowed a number of top performers to run down their contracts in order to negotiate a better deal. Asked if he would give Ramsey a new deal in the circumstances, Wenger replied: 'We tried that before and it still can happen'.

Warren went on to ask Trump to send the $1 million check to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, writing that it's a nonprofit "working to protect Native women from violence".

The senator's accompanying video begins with a clip of the president mocking her at a rally, saying: "She said she's Native-American and I said, Pocahontas!".

Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr., who studies the genetic ancestry of Americans, wrote in 2013 (citing Ancestry.com) that the average African-American genome is 2% Native American.

Detecting DNA for Native Americans is particularly tricky because there is an absence of Native American DNA available for comparison.

'And we will very gently take that kit, and we will slowly toss it - hoping it doesn't hit her and injure her arm, even though it only weighs probably two ounces'. And she wonders about the motives of those, like Trump, who "have questioned my heritage and my family history".

The campaign style video, raising and debunking attacks on her, could also be seen as evidence that Warren has learned the lessons of another failed Democratic nominee, John Kerry, who refused to aggressively confront false claims about his service in Vietnam raised by an outside group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, in 2004. "Trump hasn't turned over his taxes, he hasn't turned over anything".

She finally said last month she would take a "hard look" at running after the midterms, and her bid to put her ancestry controversy to rest is another sign she's got her eyes on the White House. While the results of the test do confirm there is native heritage in Ms Warren's family tree, critics could still point out how imprecise these DNA tests can be.
