I was never a private investigator, but there was one time I almost played one for a day.
A friend of mine had joint custody of her son with her ex, and he lived something like a hundred miles away. So, naturally, she was scared when he was talking about where he would take the kid during the day of the week that he would have him.
So, I volunteered to drive down to where he lived and look like I was blending in with the crowd when it came to parking my car on the side of the street and just look like I was waiting for someone. The good news is that the guy was honest in his dealings with my friend.
The bad news here is that not everyone is honest in their dealings. You know, much in the manner that people will storm the Capitol and then take money from CNN for doing it…
John Sullivan, described as a “left-wing grifter,” was charged by federal prosecutors for his role as an infiltrator during the barbarian invasion of the Capitol Building, but not before he cashed in big-time from the liberal mainstream network media.
According to reports, progressive network media giants CNN and NBC each shelled out serious money for “video from the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.” Allegedly they paid $35,000 each to “left-wing grifter” John Sullivan.
The defendant, hailing from Utah, “maintained that he attends raucous demonstrations as a journalist.” It’s okay, I post on YouTube. Actually, he’s more of a pro than that and has his very own website.
Sullivan likes to share his videos on “Insurgence USA” but he posts them around on other social media platforms too. “Sullivan’s defense attorney even filed invoices with the court showing that CNN and NBC each paid 26-year-old Sullivan’s firm $35,000 last month.” Not a bad haul.
That was “for rights to video he filmed of chaotic scenes outside and inside the Capitol.” What scored the big bucks was footage of “the deadly shooting of protester Ashli Babbitt by a U.S. Capitol Police officer.”
Federal prosecutors aren’t buying his story that he was just passively filming for the public press. They insist that he’s not “an innocent bystander.”
Instead, the feds allege that he was an “instigator” and was throwing gasoline on the fire to “cause additional chaos during the riot.” That’s one way to boost your media ratings.
