Matsumoto, who presided over Shkreli’s trial which resulted in convictions on three out of eight counts of wire and securities fraud, said she would not be swayed by the defense’s argument that the post was a harmless joke and that Shkreli didn’t intend to harm anybody. Instead, the Judge revoked Shkreli’s $5 million bail and ordered him directly remanded to jail pending his sentencing, according to the Daily News. No date has been set for his sentencing.
Shkreli told the judge, prosecutors and secret service agents who asked to interview him about the post that it was intended as satire. In the original post, Shkreli offered $5,000 for a strand of Hillary Clinton’s hair, claiming that he would have a DNA analysis done to confirm “that the Clinton Foundation is willing to KILL to protect its secrets.”
Now there is one thing that the arrest of Martin Shkreli proves today, after simply wanting to give $5,000 dollars for a piece of Hillary Clinton hair for a DNA sample...Is that it just further proves just how protected Hillary Clinton truly is. Shkreli didn't even say he was going to harm Hillary, he just simply joked about getting a piece of Clinton's hair for a DNA sample.
Also Shkreli going to jail over this proves that the deep state doesn't care about threats to President Trump, because people like Kathy Griffin have literally cut off Trump's head and nothing happens to them. I think the part that really got Shkreli locked up, is that he claimed if he did get Hillary's hair he would do a DNA sample to prove the Clinton Foundation kills to protect it's secrets. Folks Hillary Kills and Shkreli just wanted a piece of hair, but Shkreli goes to prison...See how protected Hillary Clinton is now?
