Well, this isn’t going to help the corporate media narrative that “insurrectionists” inspired by President Trump’s rhetoric tried to overthrow democracy at the Capitol. Yesterday on ABC’s This Week, George Will said, “I would like to see January 6th as burned into the American mind as firmly as 9/11,” and I don’t think he meant as an example of agents provocateur creating false flag incidents to discredit their political rivals. But thanks to a court filing that has escaped corporate media notice, we now know that the Justice Department has seized over $60,000 from the bank accounts of John Earle Sullivan, who sold video he took of activities that day, including of the murder of Ashli Babbitt, under the theory that it was the fruit of a criminal act. While the names of the media outlets that paid Sullivan are redacted from Ms. Wong’s court filing, as the Western Journal notes: However, in a February court hearing, Sullivan’s lawyers submitted invoices showing CNN and NBC each paid him $35,000 for the rights to his footage. While Sullivan was charged with new crimes last week, unlike the many alleged rioters held in solitary confinement, he is out on bail.
