It’s all starting to come out!
A BLM activist who stormed the Capitol has been arrested by the FBI.
John Sullivan of Utah was arrested and charged with unlawful entry, disorderly conduct, and attempted obstruction of law enforcement.
Sullivan claimed he was just filming the event but after the FBI went through his footage they found out that Sullivan was encouraging people to be destructive and was quoted saying “burn this [Expletive] down.”
He even took extra steps to disguise himself as a Trump supporter.
I guess the MSM forgot that old phrase that never gets old “never judge a book by its cover”.

The Epoch Times had more details on Sullivan’s arrest:
The Black Lives Matter activist who was seen storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was charged, the Department of Justice said Thursday.
A new court filing says John Earle Sullivan, 26, told FBI agents last week that he was at the Capitol when the breach happened. He said he entered through a window that had been broken out. He also said he was present when Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was shot dead by a U.S. Capitol Police officer as she tried to climb into the House Speaker’s Lobby through a window.
Sullivan showed agents some of the footage he captured inside the building, which he and others entered illegally.
Videos showed Sullivan and others breaking through a barricade, with the Utah man shouting: “There are so many people. Let’s go. This [Expletive] is ours! [Expletive] yeah. We accomplished this [expletive]. We did this together. [Expletive] yeah! We are all a part of this history. Let’s burn this [Expletive] down.”
Here is a video recorded by Sullivan in the Capitol building:
“We did it!”

If the FBI really wanted to find out more they should check out his recent bank transactions to see who funded his trip to DC.
Fox News had more on the story:
A left-wing activist who told Fox News last week that he’d 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.
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.
It’s funny how Anderson Cooper from CNN allowed Sullivan on his show to interview him but has yet to announce his arrest.
Anderson Cooper isn’t reporting on the John Sullivan arrest.
I wonder why.
