    Left-wing 'agitator' arrested for US Capitol riot involvement released from without bail

    Left-wing 'agitator' arrested for US Capitol riot involvement released from jail without bail

    John Earle Sullivan, the left-wing activist who was arrested for allegedly being involved in the deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, was released from jail without bail by a federal judge on Friday.

    What happened?
    Despite objections from government prosecutors, Sullivan was released from custody.

    U.S. Magistrate Judge Daphne Oberg determined that prosecutors had "failed to meet the legal threshold to keep him in custody as he awaits further court proceedings," Fox News reported.

    However, the judge placed significant restrictions on Sullivan: he is banned from being on social media, he had to forfeit his passport, he is prohibited from possessing firearms, and he must find new work outside of Insurgence USA, a social justice group that he founded.

    Sullivan was also placed on house arrest and must wear a device that monitors his location, Deseret News reported.

    Sullivan had claimed to investigators that he was "an activist and journalist" who was at the Capitol to document the protests. He was even interviewed by CNN's Anderson Cooper and MSNBC's Chris Hayes about what he witnessed inside the Capitol.

    What's the background?
    According to the Justice Department, Sullivan has been charged in federal court with multiple crimes, including:

    • 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
    • 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

    The criminal complaint against Sullivan alleges that he entered the Capitol through a broken out window. The complaint further alleges that Sullivan was wearing "a ballistics vest and gas mask" while inside the Capitol, and that Sullivan has admitted to being inside the Capitol.

    The affidavit filed in support of the criminal complaint explains what video footage showed Sullivan doing and saying as rioters besieged the Capitol.
