The arrest last month by the FBI of “revolutionary” activist John Earle Sullivan shattered the narrative that the Antifa movement that was responsible for rioting across America in 2020 had nothing to do with the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Sullivan, the founder of a group called Insurgence USA, already was facing rioting and criminal mischief charges before he was briefly taken into custody for the Washington mayhem. At a late-August event in Washington, he’s seen on video telling a crowd: “We about to burn this s*** down. We got to rip Trump out of office.” At the Capitol on Jan. 6, he allegedly urged rioters to climb over a wall and admitted breaking a Capitol window.
