According to Reuters, US authorities seized $90,000 from a Utah man who sold video of a woman being fatally shot during the Jan. 6 assault on the US Capitol by supporters of former President Donald Trump.

“Prosecutors have also brought additional criminal charges against the individual, John Earle Sullivan, a self-described political activist accused of entering the Capitol building and engaging in the riot,” according to the paper, which cited unsealed court filings.

According to the paper, Sullivan now faces a total of eight criminal counts, including firearms charges, in connection with the riot. “A request for comment from Sullivan’s lawyer was not immediately returned.”

Sullivan, a self-described “revolutionary” who had taken public positions endorsing Antifa and Black Lives Matter, had captured video of Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt being fatally shot during the Capitol riots. The one-of-a-kind video was used as evidence in a court case.

The defendant, John Sullivan of Utah, has maintained that he attends raucous demonstrations as a journalist, sharing videos through his Insurgence USA website and social media platforms. Sullivan’s defense attorney even filed invoices with the court showing that CNN and NBC each paid Sullivan’s firm $35,000 last month for rights to video he filmed of chaotic scenes outside and inside the Capitol, including the deadly shooting of protester Ashli Babbitt by a U.S. Capitol Police officer.
