Liberal activist arrested, charged with participating in Capitol riot
A progressive activist has been arrested and charged with participating in last week’s U.S. Capitol riot a week after he uploaded footage of the event to YouTube.
Utah resident and anti-Trump activist John Sullivan told Just the News last week that he had been present at the riot, including inside the Capitol, “specifically [as] a journalist, just to record the events that were going down.”
Yet FBI agent Matthew Foulger alleged in an affidavit on Wednesday that, rather than merely act as a journalist during the riots, Sullivan “knowingly and willfully joined a crowd of individuals who forcibly entered the U.S. Capitol and impeded, disrupted, and disturbed the orderly conduct of business by the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.”
Foulger in the affidavit said that footage taken by Sullivan at the riotshows the activist accompanying and cheering on the rioting crowd by saying things such as “Let’s go. This shit is ours!” and “Let’s burn this shit down.”
Last night I told you that a national security expert present at the Capitol on the afternoon of January 6th, 2021, a day which will go down in history as one of the worst days in our nation’s history—not because of the so-called Trump-inspired ‘riot’ but because of the massive security fail that was very likely planned in advance to get Donald Trump.
One of my readers last night made this astute comment:
Since 9/11, Washington DC has become the most thoroughly surveilled, security-intensive city on Earth. The Capitol police, DC police, Secret Service, FBI, and other alphabet soup security agencies undoubtedly train and re-train for every terrorist contingency or breach. They have to be prepared for Al-Qaida-type operations on DC’s federal institutions, correct? And most assuredly at a Joint Session of Congress. And likely every superstar in private security and counter-measures is under contract to the federal government for consulting. Yet, with all that, we are expected to believe that a rag-tag bunch of 100 or so civilians with MAGA hats breached security and established a position within the Capitol Rotunda? Just not possible. If this doesn’t fail the smell test, nothing does.
Also yesterday, investigative reporter John Solomon dropped a bomb, too late to save the President from another rushed impeachment at the hands of what I now truly believe are evil people working against the average American, the deplorables as they call them, for their own personal power and to usher in a socialist/communist government.
In my writing, I have never labeled people evil, but I do so now.
Gateway Punditreported on Solomon’s investigation, and here is their headline:
DC Police Reject FOIA Request For Records Related to Their Probe of Siege of Capitol – Insider Leaked Maps, Internal Docs to Help Assist Rioters Navigate Building
What did Pelosi and McConnell know of the planned attack on the US Capitol before the House impeached President Trump for inciting violence?
President Trump was blamed for the siege of the US Capitol last Wednesday, however the FBI confirmed the attack was planned several days in advance.
Investigative reporter John Solomon dropped a bombshell on Wednesday night and said the DC police rejected his FOIA request for records pertaining to their investigation of the siege of the U.S. Capitol.
The DC police said release of the records would be ‘personally embarrassing’ and privacy invading to release the documents.
Are we expected to believe that the FBI knew in advance and did nothing else about it, other than notify other law enforcement? Could they not have at least notified the hundreds of thousands of innocent Trump people in advance that their lives were in danger. Did they notify the President?
Hell they are now blathering all over the mainstream media about expected pro-Trump “armed” riots planned in all 50 states in coming days—obvious for all to see it is a Leftwing disinformation campaign!
Why no such public warning in advance of January 6th?
“We’re gonna fight for those documents but something tells me what’s in those documents has some very very big relevance to what happened on The Hill and the question I have is what did Nancy Pelosi know, what did Mitch McConnell know about these threats beforehand,” John Solomon told former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens. “If they didn’t know then, it’s an intelligence failure of the police. If they did know there’s something they didn’t tell us before we went into this impeachment.”
Solomon said the FBI, NYPD and USCP had prior knowledge of plans for violence at the US Capitol, including intel threatening murder of police officers.
Rush to judgement? Three crucial questions remain unanswered about Capitol siege
What did Nancy Pelosi know? A prior plot or spontaneous riot? Were there inside facilitators?
One thing recent history has taught America is the first storyline of major tragedies or controversies is never the most accurate.
Since the weekend, major bombshell revelations already have substantially revised the initial story of a spontaneous mob overrunning an unsuspecting Capitol police force.
The FBI admitted Tuesday it received information ahead of the Jan. 6 tragedy suggesting some participants were planning a “war” on the Capitol, including killing officers and distributing maps of the complex. It alerted Washington D.C. law enforcement through the joint terrorism task force alert system. It also “disrupted” the travel plans of some of the suspected trouble-makers.
The New York Police Department is reported to have given the Capitol Police similar intelligence warnings of impending violence.
The chief federal prosecutor in Washington declared Tuesday he is pursuing conspiracy charges, signaling the attacks on the Capitol involved multiple acts and multiple conspirators working in concert with each other. The prosecutor talked about the planting of carefully constructed IEDs as one such act. In other words, there was pre-planning for some elements of last Wednesday’s chaos.
This new evidence raises the first compelling question that remains unanswered. How could Trump incite an attack that had already been pre-planned and was in motion before his speech ended?
A senior intelligence official told Just the News he has found no evidence that the president, the White House or the National Security Council was alerted in formal intelligence briefings to the pre-warnings or suspicions of violence the FBI and NYPD have admitted they had.
The second major question that remains unanswered is:
What did House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the other leaders in Congress know — and when did they know it — about the possibility for violence and the Pentagon’s pre-attack offer to send National Guardsmen to reinforce the Capitol Police?
Sund alleged that House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving was concerned with the “optics” of declaring an emergency ahead of the protests and rejected a National Guard presence. He says Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Michael Stenger recommended that he informally request the Guard to be ready in case it was needed to maintain security.
Finally, there is this troubling third question: Were there facilitators inside the Capitol and outside it who instigated or enabled the attack to be carried out?
Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) one of the House’s longest serving and most respected members, first raised this question a few days ago. He aptly noted that protesters were able to locate and penetrate his unlisted, unmarked office within minutes, raising the possibility they had inside help.
And video taken contemporaneously shows officers and other people opening doors to rushing rioters and some people — purported by the filming cameramen to be leftist anarchists —smashing windows and urging protesters to jump into the Capitol.
Identifying any insider help and the motives will be the final and perhaps most delicate task investigators face.
I know there is not much we can do to investigate.
I admit I have been feeling sad that some of our people would break into the Capitol, but I am not feeling sad any longer. I am outraged because I now believe it was a set-up designed to further ruin Donald Trump who has stood in the way of the globalists and socialists who want to change America. We must get to the bottom of it!
We aren’t trained investigators, but what we can do is support those who are and to speak up! Now is not the time to shut up and hide (even if you are losing friends and family members over what you believe).
