    Fraudster Martin Shkreli Threatens Hillary Clinton



    Martin Shkreli, the former hedge fund manager awaiting sentencing for defrauding his investors, should have his bail revoked after offering his Facebook followers $5,000 to grab a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair during her book tour, federal prosecutors say.

    Shkreli conduct since his conviction in early August has escalated and he poses a threat to the community, the prosecutors said in a letter to the judge late Thursday. In addition to his Facebook post concerning Hillary Clinton, which drew the attention of the Secret Service, he has made harassing comments to other women online, they said.

    “Shkreli has engaged in an escalating pattern of threats and harassment that warrant his detention pending sentencing,” prosecutors said in their letter to the judge in the case. “The Court should further find that there is no condition or combination of conditions to which the defendant will abide that will ensure that he does not pose a danger to the community.”

    As a result of Shkreli’s Facebook post on Clinton, the Secret Service has “expended significant resources additional resources to ensure Secretary Clinton’s protection,” the letter said. “There is a significant risk that one of his many social media followers or others who learn of his offers through the media will take his statements seriously — as has happened previously — and act on them.”

    Shkreli later amended his post on Clinton to say that the offer was “satire.” But prosecutors note that Shkreli’s apparent animus toward Clinton includes standing outside her daughter Chelsea’s home when Clinton was reportedly there recuperating after falling sick. Shkreli “spent approximately two hours live-streaming while providing commentary and heckling Secretary Clinton,” they said.

    The Secret Service requested an interview with Shkreli, but he declined, according to the letter.

    Shkreli is currently out on $5 million bond. The judge who heard his case, U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, scheduled a hearing next week to consider the prosecutors’ motion to have Shkreli jailed pending sentencing.

    “However inappropriate some of Mr Shkreli’s postings may have been, we do not believe that he intended harm and do not believe that he poses a danger to the community,” Shkreli’s attorney, Benjamin Brafman, said in a statement. “We will address the Government’s request in a letter we will be filing with the court tomorrow‎. We take the matter seriously and intend to address the issue responsibly.”

    *Snip*

    Shkreli, 34, is best known for raising the price of an AIDS drug by 5,000 percent but was convicted by a Brooklyn jury of defrauding the investors’ in his hedge funds. Shkreli lied to obtain investors’ money then didn’t tell them when he made a bad stock bet that led to massive losses, prosecutors argued. Instead, they said, he raised more money to pay off other investors or took money and stock from a pharmaceutical company, Retrophin, he was running.

    Shkreli, who has indicated that he will appeal his conviction, argued at trial that he ultimately made money for his investors and did not intend to defraud them. He faces up to 20 years in prison, though his attorneys have said he would likely get much less.

    *Snip*

    Matsumoto, the judge in Shkreli’s case, could consider whether Shkreli has shown contrition when handing down a sentence, Goodnow said. “It certainly is not beyond the realm of possibility that Shkreli’s recent behavior could become a topic of discussion as evidence of his lack of remorse or the fact that he may be a potential repeat offender in need of deterrence,” he said.

    WHY are these fuckwhits (fedferal fraud criminals) allowed bail after conviction and before sentencing? WHY does it take so long to sentence them?

    Throw this POS in jail.

    Preferably Rikers.

    Your thoughts?

    8th Amendment issues.

    Prison will do nicely. Preferably, maximum security.

    Ms. Madeline,

    Rikers is a city jail, not a federal prison.

    This recent stunt is probably NOT going to endear him to the Judge when he goes in for sentencing on his latest convictions.

    Why does it take so long to put them away? Two reasons: MONEY and LOTS MORE MONEY!

    That said....this dude sounds fucking CREEPY! I mean, seriously...$5,000.00 for a strand of the Crypt Keeper's hair? (I would just wait, and try to find some that she sloughed off during one of her speeches....)

    Still though....CREEPY!

    He should have just asked her if Chelsea were safe, and left it at that.

    There are those in these forums who have already established that such statements, are, in no way "threatening....."

    I could not agree more, Ror.

    So many have absconded, there is a spin off of "American Greed".

    "American Greed: Fugitives".

    I couldn't get you out on a Friday night if you had been arrested on an open container beef.

    WTF are these monster thieves allowed to roam free?

    Frankly, the Secret Service should have arrested this douchebag.

    What he did to Hillary Clinton was despicable and patently criminal.

    Apparently, he has made numerous threats to several women.

    That's fine.

    Put him in General Population.

    See how much fun he has with threats in the yard......
