    Anti-Trump Capitol rioter sold footage for $35K to NBC and CNN: court papers

    Anti-Trump Capitol rioter sold footage for $35K to NBC and CNN: court papers

    Accused Capitol rioter John Sullivan sold video footage he recorded at the Jan. 6 siege to NBC and CNN for $35,000 each, according to new court papers.

    The news came as prosecutors on Tuesday tried to ban the Utah provocateur — a self-styled anti-Trump activist who they allege infiltrates protests to cause chaos and record video footage — from accessing social media, according to Politico.

    Sullivan maintains that he is a journalist for his website Insurgence USA — and his defense attorney filed invoices for the $35,000 that NBC News and CNN each apparently paid for rights to use the videos.

    But the feds allege in a criminal complaint that Sullivan was actively participating in and encouraging the siege.

    As throngs of President Donald Trump supporters stormed the building, Sullivan helped one of the rioters scale a wall leading up to an entrance of the Capitol, an affidavit alleges.

    He then entered the Capitol through a window that had been smashed by a rioter.

    As he recorded footage inside the building, Sullivan allegedly said, “we gotta get this s—t burned.”

    “It’s our house, motherf—kers. We are getting this s–t,” he added.

    Still recording, Sullivan moved with the crowd to outside the Speaker’s Lobby, where rioters faced off with police officers who were securing a doorway.

    He then captured an officer fatally shoot rioter Ashli Babbitt as she attempted to climb through a broken window that was being guarded by the officers — footage he sold to several news networks.
