There is no doubt the Jan. 6, 2021 riot on Capitol Hill included hundreds of Trump supporters, but there were also a few unexpected participants.
The Blaze explains a bit about John Sullivan:
John Sullivan, the man who was arrested for his part in the U.S. Capitol rioting, was an Olympic speed skating hopeful and appeared in an Uber commercial before he made a left-wing turn in his politics and became an activist.
Sullivan appeared in the commercial as a speed skater and aspiring Olympian. It aired in August 2016 on national television according to PT News. [..]
But after that, he appeared to take a turn and became a left-wing activist that insulted President Donald Trump on social media. James Sullivan, his brother, told PT News that he became radicalized very quickly. […]
John Sullivan founded Insurgence USA, a left-wing activist organization, after the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Gateway Pundit also alleges this interesting connection with CNN:
Footage obtained by the Gateway Pundit from militant Black Lives Matter and Antifa activist John Sullivan’s Discord server shows the so-called “civil rights activist” reveling inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan.6 as he damaged federal property. […]
After the Capitol was stormed John Sullivan appeared with CNN photojournalist Jade Sacker on CNN that night. CNN did not identify Sullivan as an Antifa-BLM protest leader. They mention Insurgence, USA but not that it is a radical leftist organization. They do not mention that Sullivan was arrested in Utah during unrest in 2020. CNN did not reveal that the two were working together inside the US Capitol. Jade Sacker has done work for NPR, CNN, NBC and other liberal outlets.
Yet, in footage streamed to his followers on Discord, Sullivan, who uses the name “Jayden X” on the app, can be heard inciting violence from inside the U.S. Capitol and boasting about breaking a window.
