    TLAIB DENIES REPORTS THAT SHE WAS SWORN IN ON THOMAS JEFFERSON’S QURAN

    Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib on Saturday denied recent reports that she was sworn in with former President Thomas Jefferson’s 18th-century Quran. Tlaib insisted that she instead used her own copy of the Islamic scriptures to make her ceremonial swear-in “more personal.”

    “I used my own *personal Quran* that my best friend of 25 years gifted me to use for the ceremonial swear in (basically a photo with Speaker Pelosi). *Note: I did not use Jefferson’s Quran as reported. I wanted it to be more personal (and my own),” she wrote.

    Tlaib’s clarification comes after many outlets reported that the freshman congresswoman used the same two-volume English translation of the Quran once owned by Jefferson and used for the swearing-in ceremony of former Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, who was the first Muslim elected to Congress. (RELATED: Keith Ellison Facing Violent Domestic Abuse Allegations Less Than A Week Before Primaries)

    On Friday she walked away from reporters who asked her about the incident. When asked about it Friday, the president characterized her comments as “disgraceful,” and claimed that such behavior dishonored both her family and herself, and showed disrespect to the United States.
