Senator Elizabeth Warren Releases DNA Test Results
Senator Elizabeth Warren has released her DNA Test results with the Boston Globe showing that she does, in fact, have Native American ancestry in her family tree. This evidence dates back 6 to 10 generations.

This could also embolden critics who can point to this as being an only trace amount of Native American heritage.

According to Fox News:

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren took the rare step Monday of releasing her DNA test results examining her possible Native American ancestry, in apparent response to persistent criticism from President Trump and other Republicans.

The results, as shared with The Boston Globe, reportedly reveal “strong evidence” the Massachusetts senator had a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations. At the same time, the report could embolden critics by showing only trace amounts of that heritage -- which Republicans have charged she used to advance her career at Harvard.

According to the analysis, if Warren’s great-great-great-grandmother was Native American, she would be considered 1/32nd Native American. Should Warren’s ancestor date back 10 generations, she would be only 1/512th Native American.

But as Warren mulls a presidential run in 2020, her Senate re-election campaign produced a video playing up the results.

Warren is now on the attack against President Trump attacking the president for calling her a liar. Warren seems to forget that she stated her grandmother was Native American when the results show that the heritage was much farther back in her family tree. 6 to 10 generations back to be exact.
