BREAKING: BLM activist who went to Capitol on Jan. 6 to 'incite violence' sentenced to 6 years in prison

Sullivan was charged with felony obstruction of an official proceeding and civil disorder and prosecutors said he sought to "incite violence."


John Earle Sullivan who previously gave a speech at a Black Lives Matter rally in DC, has been sentenced to 6 years after being charged with felony obstruction of an official proceeding and civil disorder.  

Prosecutors in the case said that Sullivan sought to "incite violence" and "foment anarchy" during the Capitol protests on J6, according to NBC News.

​​​​"I brought my megaphone to instigate sh*t," he told jurors in the case. He previously gave a speech at a BLM rally in DC in 2020.  

During the BLM speech, he called for a revolution and wanted to "rip Trump out of that office" and didn't want to wait for the next election.  

Sullivan is a not a Trump supporter at all and has said he is an “antiestablishment” activist and is a supporter of the BLM movement.  

He had been convicted on seven counts with Obstruction of an Official Proceeding; Civil Disorder; Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds; Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds; Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building; Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building; Aiding and Abetting.  

He claimed to be a journalist during the course of the trial. "I was only observing," Sullivan said in his trial testimony. "I followed the crowd. I'm there to document." 

Sullivan said in the BLM speech he has been part of a Salt Lake City, Utah extremist group called Insurgence USA in order to fight against a “white militia” group in the city.
