 PrintBy Jeff Mordock– The Washington Times – Saturday, January 16, 2021

The deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week marked a shocking milestone in the evolution of extremist groups when, for the first time, a diverse mix of organizations converging for a major assault, said current and former federal law enforcement officials.

Photos and video of the Capitol assault showed rioters with clothing, emblems and flags identifying themselves as members of the conspiracy group QAnon, the loosely allied alt-right group America First, and militias such as Three Percenters, Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.

A left-wing activist linked to Black Lives Matter also was hit with criminal charges for participating in the siege.

John Sullivan, 26, who leads the progressive activist group Insurgence USA, was charged with civil disorder, violent entry or disorderly conduct and entering a restricted building or grounds.

He admitted to media outlets that he entered the Capitol after a pro-Trump mob stormed the building. He maintains he was there to document the mayhem, not to riot.
