Elizabeth Warren: DNA test shows strong likelihood I have Native-American heritage

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

He has previously offered to make a $US1 million donation to a charity of Senator Warren's choice if she took a DNA test proving her claims.

Warren provided the test results to The Boston Globe on Sunday, the newspaper said, "in an effort to defuse questions about her ancestry that have persisted for years".

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

It concluded there was "strong evidence" that Ms. Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, has Native American DNA.

That means she could be as much as 1/32nd Native American, or as little as 1/512th.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., (left) announced on Friday that she had sent a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodities Futures Trading Commission concerning what she said were Trump's "reckless comments on market-moving economic data prior to their public release".

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.

She planned an elaborate rollout Monday of the results as she aimed for widespread attention.

Trump, with glee, told the rally crowd he looked forward to making Warren "prove" her Native American heritage on the debate stage if the two were to square off.

"I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity, paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you're an Indian", Trump told the audience. A series of law school administrators and professors who took part in her hiring repeatedly dismiss that claim as nonsense, just as they did in a comprehensive debunking of the falsehood published last month by The Boston Globe, which was given access to Warren's personnel files. "What do the facts say?" she asks him.

He has dubbed Warren the "fake Pocahontas".

"The facts suggest that you absolutely have a Native American ancestor in your pedigree", Bustamante replies.

"This new website has more than you'd ever want to know about the smears, made-up quotes, and invented stories thrown at me", Warren said in a statement.

In a tweet Monday morning, Warren said Trump should direct the funds to the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center, which works to stop domestic violence targeting Native American women and children. Warren did not use a commercial service for her DNA analysis, according to The Globe, but rather Bustamante, who is on the scientific advisory board for Ancestry.
