RNC Files State Bar Grievance Against Elizabeth Warren Over Native-American Claim

News of the card comes following Warren's acknowledgment Monday that she had apologized to Cherokee leaders for causing "confusion" by her use of a DNA test to prove Native American ancestry. "She is sorry that she was not more mindful of this earlier in her career", said Kristen Orthman, a spokeswoman for Warren, in a statement.

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".

"I really don't like that further evidence was just introduced after her apology" to the Cherokee Nation, Douglas said.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has further apologized this week for claiming to be Native American. Warren said she wrote that she was based on stories her family told about their heritage.

"During this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family stories but family stories are not the same as tribal citizenship and this is why I have apologized", Warren said.

Warren has been trying for the past year to get past the lingering controversy over her past assertion that she is Native American.

She has no previous reported discipline. Warren's elation with the news was quickly criticized.

Trump is expected to announce a venue and date for his upcoming second summit with Kim, which is expected to be held in Vietnam. Trump responded, jokingly but with a telling sense of grievance, "They wouldn't do that for me, Judah".

Questions about Warren's heritage date to at least 2012, when her Republican opponent seized on the issue during her first Senate campaign to wrongly argue she identified as a Native American to advance her career. She said her recent apologies were a recognition that she should have been more aware of how she was identifying.

She has since apologized to the Cherokee Nation for the DNA stunt. In other instances, Warren has declined to say whether she or an assistant filled out forms.

The apology, she told the Post, included regret for having called herself Native American during her tenure at the University of Pennsylvania and at Harvard University, and having labeled herself as a minority in the Association of American Law Schools directory.

On the line for "race", Warren neatly printed, "American Indian". Records surfaced by The Boston Globe revealed that in 1981, 1985, and 1988, personnel forms at the University of Texas showed Warren had identified herself as "white". She's also appealed to the Democratic base with arguments that wealthy politicians shouldn't self-fund their campaigns and proposed an "ultra-millionaire tax".

The implication was that someone else had filed the listing without her knowledge. But she has a lot of other issues that she cares about and has fought for for decades.

Warren, who rarely gives hallway interviews in the Capitol, did so Wednesday to address the Washington Post report. The couple also reported no credit card debt.
