Update to article below: Anti-Trump, BLM Activist John Sullivan was charged on January 14th in a Washington federal court after being arrested by the FBI. He remains in custody in Toeele County on a U.S. Marshals Service hold request.


Though he did not lead the charge in breaching the Capitol building, evidence shows a viral leftist protester and BLM activist was somehow involved. Video has surfaced of John Sullivan and his associate loudly agitating near the front of the crowd at the Capitol, “Come on. Let’s go!”

Sullivan is founder of Insurgence USA, a group that protests police brutality and claims to be anti-fascist. The woman with him was allegedly filming a documentary on Sullivan.

Trying to deflect blame, Sullivan later said “[w]hen you’re in a massive crowd like that, you have to blend in.”

He was cuffed and questioned by police yet was not formally arrested despite unlawfully entering a federal building with the “rioters” that allegedly breached the Capitol building.

This is not Sullivan’s first encounter with law enforcement. He was arrested in 2020 in his home state of Utah in connection with organizing a protest during a Back the Blue event that led to a motorist being shot. Sullivan was investigated for rioting, making a threat of violence and criminal mischief.

In August 2020, Sullivan made remarks to a small crowd in Washington, DC and pointed to the nearby White House and unleashed a torrent of violent rhetoric including….

“We … about to burn this s— down,” he said. “We gotta … rip Trump right out of that office right there,” he continued, adding, “We ain’t about … waiting until the next election.” He then led the crowd in a chant of, “It’s time for revolution.” 

Numerous figures who took part in the Capitol building break-in were identified through social media posts and other ways online. Many have already been fired from jobs or suffered in other ways. Over 50 arrests were made and charges are still being filed.

However, as of Saturday night, Sullivan has not been charged. This, despite being illegally inside of the Capitol building and saying he had seen or heard online chats indicating that others were planning on storming the Capitol. Such evidence could be instrumental in finding the originators.

Despite pouncing on anyone involved wearing a MAGA hat, Democrats are silent about Sullivan being involved in the “mob” as they’ve characterized all Trump supporters that were present at the Trump rally or Capitol protest. 

Basically forceful but disorganized trespassing during an arcane government procedure took place. Nonetheless, five are dead, and one anti-Trump activist, who was definitely involved in some way and is on video inside of the Capitol building with others that have been arrested, is being surprisingly philosophical about it and remains a free man.
