WATCH: Rep. Boebert responds to calls for her resignation

Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert appeared on Next9News after Democrats called for her resignation following her tweets going viral on social media while the chamber was on lockdown.

Rep. Eric Swalwell blasted Boebert Monday, tweeting “Like any citizen who has committed a crime, Lauren Boebert has the right to remain silent. I suggest that she use it.”

Boebert fired back asking Swalwell “Did you give the same legal advice to Fang Fang?” (the alleged Chinese spy Swalwell was connected to.)

Boebert also tweeted “I denounced the violence over the summer just as I did the recent events at the Capitol. I defended our Constitution and I always will. America will persevere because freedom always prevails. ”
