The same media that blamed Trump supporters for the breach, paid this Antifa punk who participated.
Court documents filed by left-wing activist John Sullivan’s attorneys claim that CNN and NBC each paid $35,000 for footage he recorded of a Trump supporter being fatally shot inside the Capitol building.
Sullivan also received $5,000 from a company called Left/Right Productions and $2,500 from ABC Australia, according to the reports.
Sullivan’s attorneys argue that he was acting as a journalist in the Capitol rather than a rioter.
John Sullivan is a Black Lives Matter goon from Utah who was flown into DC during the planned “Stop the Steal” rally.
In August John Sullivan threatened to “rip President Trump from the White House” during violence in Washington DC. Sullivan was flown to DC for the protests.
“Defendant is legitimately self-employed as a documentarian and it is oppressive to require that he not be allowed to continue his primary area of employment for an extended period of time,” Steven R. Kiersh, the Sullivan lawyer, wrote in a court filing.
Sullivan was charged on Jan. 13 with illegally entering the Capitol, civil disorder, and violent or disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
Prosecutors contend that Sullivan actively participated in the riot. Sullivan’s videos show him encouraging people to enter the Capitol building and yelling, “let’s burn this s**t down.” Reports also add that he is seen in the videos telling viewers how to make Molotov cocktails.
