John Sullivan Biography — Wiki
John Sullivan is a left-wing activist who told Fox News last week that he’d followed a pro-Trump mob into the Capitol in order to “document” the siege as he will now be subjected to a criminal complaint in connection with his alleged participation, according to the U.S. Justice Department.
Sullivan can allegedly be heard egging on protesters in the video he provided to the FBI, according to a federal criminal complaint. He has also shared the video to his YouTube and Twitter accounts under the pseudonym Jayden X.

John Sullivan: ‘I was just there to ‘document’
Inside the building, Sullivan told rioters that “We got to get this s— burned,” and “it’s our house m————,” according to an affidavit signed by FBI Special Agent Matthew Foulger.
Sullivan also told Foulger that he had been in the Capitol during the riot, entering through a broken window while wearing a ballistic vest. As protesters climbed over a wall near the Capitol entrance, he allegedly exclaimed in the video, “You guys are f—— savage. Let’s go!”
“There are so many people,” Sullivan’s voice can be heard saying as the camera shows a large group of people making its way toward the building. “Let’s go. This s— is ours! F– yeah. I can’t believe this is reality.”
“We accomplished this s—,” he said at another point “We did this together. F— yeah! We are all a part of this history.”
What John Sullivan says in Interviews
In an interview with Rolling Stone published Wednesday, Sullivan said he was putting on an act to build rapport with the protesters.
“I had to relate to these people, and build trust in the short amount of time I had there to get where I need to go,” he told the magazine. “To the front of the crowd to see the dynamic between the police and the protesters, because nobody wants to see the backs of people’s heads from a far-off distance.”
He apparently made it there. During the unrest, he tweeted an up-close video of the moment a Capitol Police officer fatally shot Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt during the riot. It had been taken just a few feet away, at the height of the chaos outside the Speaker’s Lobby.
