Specifically, he asked his social media followers to get him Hillary Clinton's hair if they attended one of her book signings.

Brooklyn federal prosecutors insist Shkreli, 34, needs to be tossed into jail and argue his bail should be revoked because of his "escalating pattern of public threats".

Shkreli, who has yet to be sentenced, apologized to Matsumoto in writing Tuesday and his attorneys argued that his comments, while distasteful, did not make him risky. "I used poor judgment but never meant to cause alarm or promote any act of violence whatsoever". "I understand now, that some may have read my comments about Mrs. Clinton as threatening, when that was never my intention when making those comments".

He has said he feels "exonerated" despite his conviction.

Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ:SIRI) Valuation According To Analysts
The fund owned 451,713 shares of the company's stock after purchasing an additional 319,982 shares during the quarter. After this sale, 26,098 common shares of SIRI are directly owned by the insider, with total stake valued at $143,017.


But on Facebook, Shkreli has struck a more defiant note. "Will pay $5,000 per hair obtained". But still, lock HER up.

Prosecutors stated that, despite Shkreli's assertion the post was "satire", it led the Secret Service to expend "significant additional resources to ensure Secretary Clinton's protection". "There is a difference, however, between comments that are meant to threaten or harass and comments — albeit offensive ones — that are intended as political satire or strained humor".

Prosecutors argue that Shkreli has harassed Hillary Clinton before when in September 2016 he stood outside Chelsea Clinton's Manhattan apartment building, where the former secretary of state was recuperating after becoming ill during a memorial service at the World Trade Center, and heckled her during a two-hour live-streaming marathon. "By the way, and if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks".

"If he had made the comments about another author who wasn't Clinton, I don't think there would be a bail revocation hearing going on here", said Bachner.

State's uninsured rate is half what it was in 2011
The Census Bureau said 25 states and D.C. had uninsured rates at or below 8%, and seven states had uninsured rates of 5% or less. Indeed, the ACA's Medicaid expansion seems to be the most important factor explaining the decline in the uninsured since 2013.


"Indeed, in the current political climate, dissent has unfortunately often taken the form of political satire, hyperbole, parody or sarcasm", wrote the lawyer, Ben Brafman.

Prosecutors cited previous examples of harassment by Shkreli. During the trial, Matsumoto chastised Shkreli for speaking with reporters in the courthouse where jurors could potentially hear him. Shkreli apologized after that incident too.

Shkreli, a former pharmaceutical executive who gained national notoriety two years ago for jacking up the price of a drug used by AIDS patients, was convicted of securities fraud last month for mismanaging two investment funds.
