Elizabeth Warren releases DNA test result
Look out, Donald. She’s coming for you.
The full report comes from Stanford University professor and DNA expert Carlos D. Bustamante, Ph.D. It begins:
Request. To analyze genetic data from an individual of European descent and determine if there is reliable evidence of Native American and/or African ancestry. The identity of the sample donor, Elizabeth Warren, was not known to the analyst during the time the work was performed.
While the vast majority of the individual’s ancestry is European, the results strongly support the existence of an unadmixed Native American ancestor in the individual’s pedigree, likely in the range of 6-10 generations ago.
Warren reminded Trump of the promise he made at a rally July 5 in Montana:
I’m going to get one of those little [DNA testing] kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage…, And we will say, ‘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 now denies making the promise, but it was, of course, recorded by numerous sources.
The senator has yet to officially announce her candidacy for president in 2020, but she has just effectively pulled one of Trump’s fangs.
And so the battle is joined.
