Elizabeth Warren faces new fallout over Native American ancestry claim

The Epic Fraud of Elizabeth Warren

She apologized in private last week to the principal chief of the Cherokee Nation for "causing confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and the harm that resulted", said tribal spokeswoman Julie Hubbard. She also said the story she's told has been "consistent".

While the senator's office is not disputing the card's authenticity, many have been skeptical about the authenticity of her native lineage, including President Trump who has mockingly awarded her the nickname "Pocahontas".

Speaking to reporters Wednesday, she said she still asserts her own family history that she has Native American ancestry, but she said that's not the same as being part of a tribe, and that's where she says she erred.

"Attorney Warren is now apologizing for misrepresenting herself as an "American Indian" or Native American throughout her career". When a voter in Iowa asked about her decision to take the DNA test, Warren said she wanted to "put it all out there" and that she knows she is "not a person of color".

The Washington Post first reported on the registration form, which the article found to be in her handwriting as well. Warren's elation with the news was quickly criticized.

Using an open records request during a general inquiry, for example, The Post obtained Warren's registration card for the State Bar of Texas, providing a previously undisclosed example of Warren identifying as an "American Indian".

CentCom Commander: 'I Was Not Aware' of Syria Withdrawal Announcement
Since Trump's announcement, the USA military has removed some equipment and supplies from Syria , though no US troops have left. If the meeting takes place as planned, it will be Trump's second time coming face-to-face with Kim over the previous year .

Warren attempted to address the controversy a year ago by taking a DNA test. I want her to do a video like she did to announce her DNA results.

The ID card was significant, the Post reported, because it ended any doubt that Warren had claimed Indigenous ancestry herself, instead of, say, an employee or aide doing it.

Smith continued: "The question is, was she trying to gain some sort of advantage-in this case, in the Texas bar-over those that did not consider themselves "American Indian".

David Cornsilk, a member of the Cherokee Nation and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians in Oklahoma, pointed out that Warren had identified as a minority in professional settings beyond the Texas state bar. Jordan warned that Warren's treatment of her heritage raises "a whole lot of questions and doubt" about her integrity: "If you can not uphold that, then it makes things challenging".

Several months after Warren started working at Harvard law school in 1995, she approved listing her ethnicity as Native American.

Warren, who rarely gives hallway interviews in the Capitol, did so Wednesday to address the Washington Post report.
