Chief spreading bull: Cherokee Nation rejects Elizabeth Warren’s DNA results

Cleaners were seen going into the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul around lunchtime Monday

Bustamante's full report is now posted on Warren's website, along with other supporting documents and interviews detailing her background.

President Donald Trump lashed out at Sen.

He called it "phony" and said even the Cherokee Nation denies Warren. This has been a controversial topic for years, with President Trump repeatedly questioning her heritage and calling her "Pocahontas".

What's unclear is whether Warren's DNA gambit will allow her to put the controversy in the past, or whether it endures in jokes and political lore.

Warren's self-proclaimed Native American heritage had been challenged previously by her 2012 Republican opponent in the senate race in MA, who accused her of using it to gain an unfair advantage in getting coveted university positions.

He speculated about the potential outcome of his DNA test, joking, "I'll probably be Iranian". Furthering Warren's self-own, it turns out the average American has 0.8 percent Native blood, making her claim even less impressive.

"A DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship", read a statement from Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. Trump's reference to "1/1024" referred to the scenario that her native ancestor is 10 generations back.

Warren acknowledged in a tweet Monday that DNA and family history have nothing to do with tribal affiliation or citizenship, which is determined by tribal nations.

In a second tweet moments later, Trump alleged that Warren's claims of Native American heritage "have turned out to be a scam and a lie" and called for Warren to apologize for the second time in 24 hours.

Hoskin, in his statement, did not refer to Warren as a "fraud".

But Warren had a role in this, too: Journalists in Boston started uncovering evidence that suggested that Warren may have known more about Harvard's promotion of her as Native American than she first let on.

Warren has claimed Cherokee and Delaware Indian heritage, citing family stories, but until Monday had not presented documentation. "Nothing like that ever happened, that was clearly not the use for it, and so I stopped checking it off", she said.

"Great, now I can go after Horseface and her 3rd rate lawyer", the President tweeted just after 11 am. When asked about it Monday, Trump said he'd donate only if he "can test her personally". "This is not something I would enjoy doing either".

Warren tweeted that Trump is a "cowardly elitist" and that she "won't sit quietly for Trump's racism" so she took the test.

"He's trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself", Warren said on Twitter.

"I never thought the President of the United States would tweet something like this out", said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ). Whether you love Warren or loathe her should depend on her ideas and ideals, her deeds and words - not on her genetic ancestry.
