Federal Judge Releases BLM Capitol Rioter Without Bail; Prosecution Pleading For Him To Remain Behind Bars Arguing He 'thrives on chaos'

Federal Judge Releases BLM Capitol Rioter Without Bail:
John Earle Sullivan, a far-left agitator who was present at the Capitol riots on Jan. 6 and recorded a woman’s death at the hands of police, was released from jail on Friday without bail, according to Fox News.
According to Utah District Magistrate Judge Daphne Oberg, the motion for Sullivan’s detention was denied because it didn’t meet the court’s threshold for a hearing. Prosecutors had asked for Sullivan to be retained in jail at least until inauguration day.
Democrats including President-elect Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer have called the rioters “domestic terrorists” engaged in “sedition,” crimes that can carry the death penalty. Based on these claims, the U.S. capitol has been infused with some 20,000 U.S. troops in advance of Biden’s inauguration Tuesday.
Federal judges have denied bail to others who took part in the Jan. 6 chaos. Not Oberg.
“The court orders John Earle Sullivan’s release, in this case, based on a finding that the government did not establish a basis to hold a detention hearing…Because the court finds the threshold conditions under § 3142(f) have not been met, it cannot hold a detention hearing and, thus, cannot detain the defendant,” Oberg wrote. --->READ MORE HERE
BLM activist who was armed with a knife and egged on mob during siege of the Capitol is freed on bail despite prosecution pleading for him to remain behind bars arguing he 'thrives on chaos':
A left-wing activist charged over his role in the siege of the U.S. Capitol Building has made his first appearance in court.
John Earle Sullivan, 26, told CNN that he entered the Capitol during last Wednesday's siege merely to document the chaos, but was later arrested after video emerged purportedly showing him egging on the rioters.
Sullivan has been charged with one count of knowingly entering a restricted building, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement.
On Friday, he appeared via Zoom from a jail cell in Utah for his first court hearing.
A judge granted Sullivan bail on strict conditions, despite a prosecutor pleading for him to remain behind bars until after Joe Biden's Inauguration. --->READ MORE HERE
