Is This for Real? CNN and NBC Paid Left-Wing Capitol Terrorist $35,000 Each for His Capitol Riot Footage

John Earl Sullivan was arrested in the state of Utah after the Capitol riots. He’s an Antifa protester who decided to head to the site of these riots and pretended to be a Trump supporter. There is a wide range of Antifa members who decided to behave in this manner during the riots and it is appalling, to say the least.

Why should anyone have to endure the endless blame game that is being played by the mainstream media over this? The Gateway Pundit has obtained crucial footage from Sullivan’s Discord server. This footage tells us everything that we need to know. He was reveling at the Capitol and was very happy to have destroyed federal property.

Sullivan claims that he only attends protests so that he can find out more about what is really going on. This does not jibe with the footage that has surfaced but we digress. If you let him tell it, he did not come to Washington to start trouble. He only wanted to provide documentation. It was a lousy excuse at the time and it is only going to look worse and worse in retrospect.

“It’s just recording, solely, and not being active in it,” Sullivan said in an interview with Fox News. However, those who know him best know that this is all a cover. He is a Utah Antifa leader who needs to be treated as the threat to public safety that he really is. The mainstream media has very little interest in the facts.

Did they tell anyone that he also organized his own rally at the Washington Monument before this one? He was all for the insurrection and it does not matter what he has to say about the topic. Sullivan can make any claim that he wants but he can’t back any of it up with verifiable facts.

Kyle Cheney is a Politico reporter who has another piece of information about Sullivan that the mainstream media did not care to report on. Did you know that he received a hefty payment for the footage that he provided from inside of the Capitol building? $35,000 payments were given by NBC and CNN! This seems like information that was probably worth mentioning. Call us crazy.

“NEW: John Sullivan, charged for his participation in the Jan. 6 riots, was paid $35,000 apiece from CNN and NBC for his footage inside the Capitol. More on his detention hearing from @joshgerstein,” shared Cheney yesterday. This is a man who came prepared and he already has his receipts on hand.

If you would like to see the invoices for yourself, all you need to do is head to his Twitter account. He’s got all the proof that we require, that is for sure. Taylor Hansen is a contributor to the Gateway Pundit and he is sounding off the alarm bells about the size of these payments.

“With over 6 months of experience as an independent Journalist, I have captured some of the most viewed and circulated media content on the internet. I have NEVER made over $1,000 on an individual video. The highest I have ever seen a news source pay for breaking news footage is $3,000. John Sullivan being paid $35,000 by CNN and NBC for ONE EVENT is criminal.

An average paid journalist out of Utah makes $3,021 a month, NOT $75,000 IN A MATTER OF DAYS. Let’s not forget that John has always been an ANTIFA and BLM organizer and activist. He has never before reported in a journalistic capacity. Even while “reporting” he is seen breaking a window, telling people he has a knife to get to the front of a crowded hallway, and is heard saying, “LET’S BURN THIS SHIT DOWN!”

John Sullivan is not and has never been a journalist. He is an avowed BLM organizer and activist, his group InsurgenceUSA has a history of violence. There is something nefarious going on here, and I intend to find out what it is,” says Hansen. We will be sure to keep you fully up to date as the story unfolds.
