A left-wing activist who told Fox News last week that hed followed a pro-Trump mob into the Capitol in order to "document" the siege is now the subject of a criminal complaint in connection with his alleged participation, according to the U.S. Justice Department. Fox News John Sullivan can allegedly be heard egging on protesters in video he provided to the FBI, according to a federal criminal complaint. He has also shared the video to his YouTube and Twitter accounts under the pseudonym Jayden X. He was charged Thursday in federal court in Washington after being arrested by the FBI. He remains in custody in Toeele County, in his home state of Utah, on a U.S. Marshals Service hold request.
So this guy was there,
with a camerawoman who has worked for CNN and NPR
, egging people on to destroy things and break into the building. He was there egging people on when Ashli was shot and may have broken the window that got her shot. He admits he was a false-flag:
In an interview with Rolling Stone published Wednesday, Sullivan said he was putting on an act to build rapport with the protesters. Fox News "I had to relate to these people, and build trust in the short amount of time I had there to get where I need to go," he told the magazine. "To the front of the crowd to see the dynamic between the police and the protesters, because nobody wants to see the backs of peoples heads from a far-off distance." He apparently made it there. During the unrest, he tweeted up-close video of the moment a Capitol Police officer fatally shot Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt during the riot. It had been taken just a few feet away, at the height of the chaos outside the Speakers Lobby. More about his political positions
And he organized a protest that sounds like Antifa:
While he has denied ties to Antifa, or anti-fascists, in recent interviews, his group Insurgence USA had advertised an event called "Kick These Fascists out of DC" on Wednesday around the same time as a pro-Trump rally near the National Mall that preceded the Capitol chaos. Fox News
Add in the timeline -- people began storming the capitol building before Trump even started speaking, when it takes almost an hour from the site of the speech to walk to the capitol building.
