Rashida Tlaib Will be Sworn in Using Thomas Jefferson's Quran

Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib Will be Sworn in Using Thomas Jefferson's Quran

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) came to Congress dressed in traditional Palestinian clothing.

Pelosi said in an interview on NBC's "Today" Thursday that politics will not play a role in whether Democrats decide to impeach the president.

President Donald Trump on Thursday brushed aside recent threats from Democrats to impeach him from office and reiterated that his campaign team did not collude with Moscow during the 2016 presidential election.

"And when your son looks at you and says, 'Momma, look you won, bullies don't win.' And I said, 'Baby, they don't, ' because we're gonna go in there and we're gonna impeach the mother******".

"Throughout my career in public service, the residents I have had the privilege of fighting for have embraced who I am, especially my Palestinian roots", she wrote.

Newly elected Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other party leaders have said they want to wait for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to issue a final report from his Russian Federation probe before deciding whether to impeach Trump.

Both congresswomen took their oaths of office on the Quran, with Tlaib using a personal copy and Omar using her grandfather's copy.

Trump responded to Tlaib's words Friday during a press briefing outside the White House, calling the congresswoman's comments "disgraceful".

Will Dems Impeach Trump and Propel Him to Re-election?

Pelosi said Friday at an MSNBC town hall that she doesn't agree that the House should move to impeach Trump without more facts. By rebuking one, the more seasoned Democrats were effectively warning the others. "I'm not going to tell anyone else what to do, but certainly, I think, it would behoove all of us to really be working for the people who need" Congress' help.

Placing her hand on a Quran that once belonged to Thomas Jefferson, Tlaib was sworn in earlier Thursday.

"We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road, they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can't get a fucking school in Brooklyn", he said.

"The Democrats see the Mueller operation as a vehicle for the impeachment of President [Trump], and I guarantee you that the Mueller operation sees itself as a vehicle for the impeachment of President Trump, too", Tom Fitton, president of the government watchdog Judicial Watch wrote on Twitter.

Salty language by U.S. lawmakers - or presidents, for that matter - is nothing new.

"But I don't think it's any worse than what the president has said".
