“I saw a lot of Trump rallies starting to pop up across the nation, I saw the support that he was getting. But I didn’t see really any of the support that Biden was getting. I see no rallies for Biden,” he said.
“You don’t see Biden rallies with Biden 2020 signs flags popping up all over the US. You see a lot of Trump rallies and Trump 2020 rallies. So that does speak for itself,” he continued.
“That does speak for something – that people are willing to go out and advocate for something that they believe in.” In footage obtained by the Gateway Pundit earlier this month, Sullivan admits he purchased a Trump hat to embed himself among “Stop the Steal” protesters.
Sullivan was also seen in the video encouraging violent rioters inside and around the Capitol Building as he damaged federal property. The mayhem left at least five people dead, including Air Force veteran Ashi Babbit who Sullivan filmed getting shot and killed.
Shortly after the footage was published, Sullivan was arrested by the FBI. Prior to the Capitol siege, Sullivan gave a speech calling on a crowd of protesters to “fucking rip Trump” out of the White House.
“We out there ready to burn that shit down,” he proclaimed. “We got to fucking rip Trump out of that office right over there. We got to fucking pull him out that shit. We are about to get that motherfucker.”
Despite Sullivan’s intent to rip Trump out of office, he agrees with Trump supporters on at least one issue: the 2020 election was a sham.
“There is definitely something kind of fishy to say that Biden got all of these votes when Trump had all of these people out there protesting,” he argued.
“I believe that [Biden] won in the sense that that’s what came through the system, right? That came through the ballot machines. That’s what counted. Do I think that there could have been some kind, some sort of miscount or rigging? Yes, I do.”
Sullivan was released without bail on Jan. 15. A federal judge in Utah said prosecutors failed to meet the legal threshold to keep him in custody as he awaits further court proceedings.
