But Trump’s own next sentence was entirely false.
Trump claimed that Lamb — whose first and last name he misspelled as “Connor Lamm” — is a “puppet” for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Trump continued: “He said he would NOT vote for her for Speaker, and did.”
Lamb declined to comment further.
Lamb, a former federal prosecutor, served as a Judge Advocate officer in the Marine Corps from 2009 to 2013, getting honorably discharged as a captain. He subsequently served in the Marine reserve, completing his service this year.
