In 2015, John Lambert and Ryan Fournier founded the college group “Students For Trump” but now Lambert will spend 13 months in prison for posing as a lawyer. Lambert claimed to be Eric Pope from NYC law firm Pope & Dunn, making up fake credentials that he was an NYU Law School grad with over 15 years of experience in corporate and patent law. However, now the fraudster must answer for his crimes.

NY Daily News reports:

The baby-faced scammer from Tennessee admitted to running the racket from 2016 to 2018, which targeting people who had little or no experience seeking legal advice. Lambert earned at least $46,654 through legal advice he was totally unqualified to give.

Caproni called Lambert “a cold-blooded fraudster who cared not a whit about the victims of his fraud.

Lambert and Fournier, who cooperated with prosecutors, captured headlines with the college organization during the 2016 presidential campaign. The group was known for posting photos of bikini-clad women and of the co-founders at various political events.

“We’ve been told that we’re more organized than the actual Trump campaign,” Lambert told The Chronicle of Higher Education before the election.

Lambert’s attorney, Gary Peters, said he was disappointed with the sentence. He added that Lambert no longer supported Trump.

  1. I have never before seen so much fraud going on in this country as there is now…Where is the FBI?…It appears they are all asleep at the helm or they are so involved in their own corruption they care not what goes on illegally in this country.

    1. And allowing the pipeline company, Continental, to pay 5 mil to cyber TERRORISTS. Where is the FBI, NSA, CIA, HOMELAND, etc. Who knows, it might even be a big scam, as Plugs was out the next day plugging for everyone to buy a 30K electric car that will take you 240 miles!

      1. I personally won’t buy an electric car when i go on vacation i don’t want to b screwing around stopping every 240 mi an waiting 15 to 20 min recharge stupid

      2. So they paid the ransom, maybe to track it back to the perps? Since Darkside’s servers and websites have been shut down and all funds seized… Just a thought 4 the thoughtless.

        1. It was a deep state setup to punish Patriots! Nothing to worry about???? This company is connected to the Administration. The head of Energy gets advice from the CEO. No more BS

      3. Its been posted on many sites that it was in fact a scam! And supposedly NO $$$ was paid! Who do you believe? Some evil rats could have put this all together and joe would never know it! They get rich, we get screwed, and he acts so what?

    2. The FBI? Last time I heard, they were at the wrong house in Alaska kicking in the door of the wrong person looking for Nancy Pelosi’s PC.

    3. You are right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! next election think two times before vote…..if you still trust American vote system …..

    4. Yes, you are absolutely right! Our FBI and CIA are disgraceful and impotent. They do nothing to defend our country nor its people. But, then again, look who is sitting in our highest office, a buffoon with no memory that thinks he knows what he is doing. He does not and apparently, neither does the FBI nor CIA.

      Our Country is dying a slow painful death while those idiot democrats destroy everything that is good to implement their own twisted, evil agendas. DEMS HAVE NEVER CARED ABOUT ANYONE BUT THEMSELVES AND THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION DEFINITELY PROVES THAT!

      As for that kid, he is not a Conservative, even when pretending to support P.T. That kid is an arrogant limelight grabber who actually fits right into the democrat philosophy. The young man makes use of opportunities, people, and crime. Don’t you think he is a demonrat by heart? Yes, I do too.

  2. It is always fun to see who actually believe what they say and who says things to make headlines and money. Go to jail. Go directly to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $100.

  3. A miniscule figure is brought to justice but a stolen election is allowed to stand. Corruption in high places is to be ignored but the populace cannot get away with even small infractions. BLM and ANTIFA can burn down stores, homes, and businesses as well as cause deaths but don’t you dare impersonate anyone. Anyone who is pro-Trump will be attacked and prosecuted but, if the Deep State certifies you, you are free to commit whatever crime you choose. Sounds about right.

  4. A lot of fakers rode the Trump wave. Those who appreciated his fight for some of the same things they believe, would most likely vote for him again. The fact that this guy no longer supports him says it all. He is an opportunist. He should feel at home in the Dem party…opportunism is the name of their chief game.

  5. Wow such a criminal, now when are they going after the corrupt, FBI? Oh that’s right, there after all the white supremists, c.wray made up, that stormed the capital on the 6th. Don’t worry though, antifa and blm are just a ideaology, says c.wray that confused FBI phony leader.

  6. Lambert is a fraud! He claims he was a Republic , but really was a Democrat, cheater, lier, a total fraud! That is what they are good at because they don’t have religion! Morals are lacking!

  7. Lambert no longer supported Trump after he’s indicated for his scam. Probably never voted for Trump. A scammer knows how to get himself into the Limelight, but they most always get caught.

  8. What an ignorant fool!! Good riddance to bad rubbish!! And shame on Ryan Fournier (whose reputation must now be tarnished as well) for allying himself with this fraud. I guess “The higher they go, the harder they fall!!”

  9. The Dem’s have to cover up for each others crimes-
    Like the mob-they are attached by crime-no snitching on each other.
