FBI Arrests Black Lives Matter Organiser Who Invaded Capitol
The Black Lives Matter protests organiser and the Antifa activist has been arrested for its role in the armed attack at Capitol on Jan 6.
Black Lives Matter organiser John Sullivan was taken into custody in Provo Thursday, over a week after he shared video of himself inside the U.S. Capitol as protesters breached security.
The author of the police document informed that Mr. Sullivan can be seen outside the Capitol building using a microphone as he told the crowd “we about to burn this s… down,” “we got to rip Trump out of office... pull him out of that s… we ain’t waiting until the next election... we about to go get that m…”
While in the Capitol, Mr. Sullivan was wearing a ballistics vest and gas mask.
Police charged Black Lives Matter organiser, and the Antifa activists in Utah, with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds and one count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their official duties incident to and during the commission of civil disorder
In a video posted to social media last week, Mr. Sullivan claimed he ran into the Capitol building with the others to document what was transpiring.
I was there to record, said Mr. Sullivan in a video posted to Periscope Friday. I was there to let people see that situation in the best possible way."
Mr. Sullivan is the founder of Insurgence USA, an activist group formed after the killing of George Floyd in the summer of 2020. He organised Black Lives Matters protests in the area of Utah. He says he voluntarily interviewed with the FBI in Washington, DC on Jan. 7.
In the social media video, Mr. Sullivan commented that his videos proved that the riots were comprised of Trump supporters and not Antifa members. But the claim was false which the arrests of himself, the Black Lives Matters and Antifa activist proved
In June, Mr. Sullivan was arrested for organizing a protest in Provo where a person was shot.
