Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren officially released her DNA results Monday morning; effectively ending years of speculation surrounding her unsubstantiated claims of her Native American ancestry.
Warren sent the report to the Boston Globe that provides “strong evidence” she has at least one Native American ancestor in her family tree “dating back 6 to 10 generations.”
“Warren, whose claims to Native American blood have been mocked by President Trump and other Republicans, provided the test results to the Globe on Sunday in an effort to defuse questions about her ancestry that have persisted for years. She planned an elaborate rollout Monday of the results as she aimed for widespread attention,” writes the Globe.
The test -conducted by Carlos Bustamante of Stanford University- concludes that the “vast majority” of the Senator’s DNA comes from European descent but adds “the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor.”
