No Hiding It Now! Court Docs Show CNN, NBC Paid Anti-Trump Capitol Rioter Handsomely
John Sullivan, charged for his participation in the Jan. 6 riots, was paid $35,000 apiece from CNN and NBC for his footage inside the Capitol. Sullivan seems to be a career rioter as arrest records show he partici[ated in BLM riots over the summer. The self-described "anti-Trump activist" claims that his presences there were journalistic but the footage he shared caught him shouting things like; This s**t is ours! F*** yeah," "We accomplished this s**t. We did this together. F*** yeah! We are all a part of this history," and "Let's burn this s**t down."
Sullivan's own brother turned him into law enforcement after the Capitol riot, saying that he believed his brother not only participate but that he was in charge somehow. This rips a hole through the deranged leftist's defense that he was not an active participant and paints the picture that he was in fact an inciter.
His legal team has since changed their defense strategy and now claims that the mainstream media's payment for his footage is proof that he is a journalist.
TheBlaze shared those documents and said that the revelation came during a recent court hearing in which Sullivan — who is charged with provoking violence during the storming of the Capitol last month — avoided being banned on Facebook and Twitter but was ordered by a judge to quit his alleged work as a videographer.
Sullivan, who has described himself as an anti-Trump activist and supporter of Black Lives Matter, maintains that he is a journalist who travels the country filming violent uprisings for Insurgence USA, a media company he claims to have founded earlier in 2020 after the death of George Floyd. To prove claims that he is a professional journalist, Sullivan's defense team filed invoices showing that both CNN and NBC paid Sullivan a hefty amount for footage he captured during the events of Jan. 6.

A Career Rioter
Just take a look at the report below that shows Sullivan's record, his brother's account of the leftist's role in the Capitol riot and much more. Officials have already confirmed the riot was planned well in advance and that Antifa thugs were present. This just details further how in-depth the plot to dismantle the Trump administration really was/it:
Sullivan was arrested soon after the riot and indicted by a grand jury last week on six charges, including obstruction of an official proceeding, civil disorder and disorderly conduct.
In a court hearing Tuesday, a magistrate judge in Washington blocked prosecutors’ request that Sullivan be barred from his social media accounts while he awaits trial for the riot, according to Politico. The judge, however, did order Sullivan to cease work for Insurgence USA, and said he could not use social media to incite riots or violence.
