‘Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., shot back at President Donald Trump after he called her campaign a “fraud,” suggesting Trump could be impeached or indicted by the time the 2020 election rolls around.
“By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president,” Warren said at her first campaign event in Iowa, according to CNN. “In fact, he may not even be a free person.”
But after Trump mocked her campaign effort, Warren began to get personal as well, pointing to the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian collusion by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“Well come on. How many investigations are there now? It’s no longer just the Mueller investigation,” Warren said. “They’re everywhere, and these are serious investigations, so we’ll see what happens.”
Trump has often derided the partisan, politically-motivated investigations being led by House Democrats as wasteful and interfering with the administration’s ability to govern. Others, such as Fox News host Chris Wallace, observe that House Republicans did the same.
Thus far, despite persistent efforts in Congress and the media, no evidence has been presented in public that would reasonably link Trump to any criminal or impeachable offense based on precedents and standards established by previous administrations.
Warren, however, has been dealing with the fallout from a serious scandal that some say impugns her credibility and personal code of ethics.
She came under heavy criticism from both Republicans and Democrats for falsely claiming Native American ancestry on several professional documents, including her application to Harvard Law School, which later claimed her as a “minority.”
Progressive critics accused Warren of cultural appropriation after a DNA test revealed she is less than 2 percent Cherokee—and Republicans slammed her as a liar.
“Elizabeth Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.
“The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas, like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America’s middle class,” Parscale said. “Only under President Trump’s leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous.”
Trump mocked Warren’s presidential bid in a series of tweets on Saturday:
Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!

Warren fired back: “Every day there’s a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly.”
“And what are we, as candidates, as activists, the press going to do about it?” Warren continued. “Are we going to let him use those to divide us?”
