"Students For Trump" Founder Pleads Guilty To Impersonating A Lawyer

The 23-year-old male who founded the groups Students for Trump pleaded guilty in a Manhattan federal court on Tuesday to wire fraud conspiracy for running a $46,000 scam in which he pretended to be a lawyer offering legal advice online.

The founder, John Lambert, created a fake website for a fake law firm called Pope & Dunn, where he pretended to be an NYU Law School graduate named John Pope. He claimed he had a finance degree from the University of Pennsylvania and had worked in corporate law for 15 years, according to the New York Daily News.

Lambert will be sentenced in November. As part of his plea deal, he agreed not to appeal a sentence that is 21-months or less and will hand over the $46,000 he scammed out of clients.
