(TheRedWire.com) – According to the media and Democrats, it was Trump supporters who rioted and committed insurrection against the government on January 6. However, that’s not entirely true, and the media played a role in fueling the flames on that tragic day. You probably won’t hear about this in many mainstream media outlets – a 26-year old Left-wing activist is facing charges for his role in the riots on Capitol Hill.

However, he’s not just any activist. CNN, NBC, and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) paid a total of $77,000 to BLM/Antifa activist John Sullivan for exclusive video content. Sullivan claims he was there to shoot video and was participating as a documentarian. He obtained footage of when rioters entered the Capitol building and when a US Air Force veteran was shot and killed by a Capitol police officer.
However, Sullivan was caught on the video encouraging the violence. He told rioters to burn down the building and more. He was charged with illegally entering the Capitol building, civil disorder, and violent or disorderly conduct.
