Students For Trump Founder Sentenced To 13 Months In Prison, Posed As Lawyer With An Ivy League Education

The New York Daily News reports:

A judge slammed the founder of Students for Trump as a “cold blooded fraudster” before sentencing him to 13 months in prison for posing as a lawyer. John Lambert, 25, pretended to be as Eric Pope, of the Manhattan-based firm Pope & Dunn.

He falsely claimed to be a graduate of NYU Law School with a finance degree from University of Pennsylvania and 15 years of experience in corporate and patent law.

Lambert grabbed headlines during the 2016 presidential campaign for the group he founded with classmate Ryan Fournier at Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C., in 2015. Their Students for Trump group ran a Twitter account featuring photos of bikini-clad women and pics of themselves at political events.

During his trial, it was revealed that Lambert was “obsessed” with the movie, The Wolf Of Wall Street. His alleged co-conspirator, Ryan Fournier, cooperated with prosecutors. Fournier has nearly one million Twitter followers.
