Elizabeth Warren publicly apologizes for first time over controversial DNA test

Did Elizabeth Warren Remove Her Bogus DNA Test Video Before Speaking to a Native American Forum Elizabeth Warren Apologizes for Heritage Claims at Native American Event: ‘I Am Sorry for the Harm I Have Caused’

Warren's website until Sunday included a video of the Massachusetts Democratic senator getting the results of the DNA test, showing that she had between 1/64th and 1/1024th Native American ancestry, The Daily Caller reported.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass.) presidential campaign removed her DNA test ancestry video on Monday as her campaign attempts to put the issue behind her.

The video featured Warren receiving news about her ancestry from geneticist Carlos Bustamante, who says that Warren likely has a Native American ancestor. "I am sorry for the harm I have caused".

"I want to say this: Like anyone who's being honest with themselves, I know that I have made mistakes. I have listened and I have learned a lot, and I am grateful for the many conversations that we've had together".

The audience had heard enough and applauded as Warren finished her thought and promised to continue her long partnership with Native communities "as President of the United States of America". For years, she claimed Cherokee and Delaware Indian heritage, provoking outrage among many in Indian Country who argue that only tribes, not individuals, should decide who is Indian and who is not.

The report also mentions that Warren originally requested to know whether she had any African American ancestry, which she does not.

Warren has gained significant momentum after the June and July Democratic debates.

Philippe Coutinho: Bayern Munich sign midfielder on loan from Barcelona
Coutinho joined Barca from Liverpool in January 2018 and has since struggled to reproduce the kind of form he showed for the Reds. The deal will cost Bayern £7.8m plus wages, and the agreement also includes an option to buy, fixed at £109.8m.

Warren fielded questions about her proposals, which include a legislative change for a Supreme Court ruling that impedes tribal governments' ability to prosecute crimes committed on tribal lands by those who don't belong to a tribe.

Warren said she did so because of family stories that she had Cherokee and DE ancestry, but critics accused her of lying to advance her prospects, even though there has been no evidence she benefited professionally. Strict voter ID laws, the removal of voters' names from rolls, and inaccessible voter registration and polling sites are some of the factors holding Native Americans back from participating in local, state and national elections.

After a round of applause, the candidate said that "the federal government's history with our tribal nations has been one of broken promises" and that "we need to honor our trust and treaty obligation to the native tribes".

"I think it is going to be a little tough for her and she's not ready for what Trump has", said Ayan Breese.

"I really didn't feel an apology was necessary".
