John Earle Sullivan was arrested for his part in the rioting at the U.S. Capitol, according to The Blaze.
Sullivan admitted that he was not a Trump supporter but in fact an anti-Trump activist.
John Earle Sullivan told KUTV that he is the founder of Insurgence USA and he does not align with the president politically.
Insurgence USA was founded after the killing of George Floyd Sullivan said.
Once inside, federal prosecutors allege that he shouted for more violence.
The affidavit for Sullivan’s arrest states:
After the crowd broke through the last barricade, and as SULLIVAN and the others approach the Capitol Building, SULLIVAN can be heard in the video saying at various points: ‘There are so many people. Let’s go. This s— is ours! F— yeah,’ ‘We accomplished this s—. We did this together. F— yeah! We are all a part of this history,’ and ‘Let’s burn this s— down.
In video obtained from Insurgence USA by KSTU-TV, Sullivan says to the camera that he is a supporter of Black Lives Matter.
Sullivan was arrested and charged with entering a restricted building or grounds, “civil disorders,” and violent entry or disorderly conduct.
