    Sullivan is a Black Lives Matter and Antifa activist who organized an illegal, violent demo against police in Provo, Utah, June 29, 2020, in which a driver was shot. Videos show Sullivan blocking cars and kicking in doors and windows until his colleague Jesse Taggart is said to have shot one of the drivers.

    Sullivan is the founder of the radical left “Insurgence USA” and appears under the name “Jayden X”. On January 6, he spoke in Washington at the anti-Trump demonstration “Kick These Fascists Out”. There Sullivan called for “all this shit to be burned down” and “to drag Trump out of the White House”. “We’re going to get this motherfucker now,” Sullivan said.

    After that, Sullivan disguised himself with CNN journalist Jade Slacker and joined the Trump demo. “I don’t believe it” Sullivan cheered with other protesters entering the Capitol. “We made it!” His video footage shows Sullivan trying to break a window inside the Capitol. He comments smugly that another window has already been broken: “You don’t have to film that.”

    In another shot, Sullivan approaches the crowd in front of the guarded door where Ashli ​​Babbitt was shot. “Let me through, I have a knife!” he shouts. In front of the door he orders the police officers to “go home”. “There are so many people here, you better go.” Then Sullivan instigates the crowd to break down the doors: “Let’s go! Come on!”

    Shortly afterwards, one of the Capitol cops on the other side of the door pulls the gun: “He has a gun!” Sullivan yells, while Ashli ​​Babbitt appears to be trying to climb through the window and is shot in the process.

    Later, CNN journalist Jade Sacker cheered Sullivan inside the Capitol: “I have to hug you,” said Sacker. “We made it! You were right!” The Antifa leader then indicates that this breach had been planned. “I wanted to tell you,” Sullivan replies to Sacker, “but I couldn’t say much. You just have to watch my channel. Isn’t that going to be the coolest movie of your life?”

    “It’s all set,” Sullivan tells the camera later that evening. “My face is not on Instagram, I’ve already learned that. I’m wearing a Trump hat that I bought today. I wore them to the Trump demo. I always say I’m a journalist. I always carry a big camera on my shoulder.”

    After the incident, Sullivan and Sacker gave CNN presenter Anderson Cooper an interview about the death of Ashli ​​Babbitt. However, CNN failed to indicate that Sullivan is a far-left activist who was arrested in connection with a murder in June.

    Sullivan was arrested on Thursday on federal felony charges because he took part in the riot at the Capitol. The series of statements that Sullivan made on video encouraged the lawbreaking. A felony is traditionally considered a crime of high seriousness.
