    Nasty piece of work. Wonder if he'll survive prison? He seems like such a narcissist.

    Oops, better say that IMO he is guilty as hell and of course that's only my opinion.

    Feb 4, 2016 Reuter link with some highlights of article on Shkreli....who mocked the hearing and was able to leave early because he would not answer anything. Shkreli commented he was told how to smile and act while in the hearing. Shkreli is still facing other charges. Link Below

    http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-congress-shkreli-idUSKCN0VD20S


    "Former drug executive Martin Shkreli laughed off questions about drug prices and tweeted that lawmakers were imbeciles on Thursday, when he appeared at a U.S. congressional hearing against his will."

    ... U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform hearing, "Shkreli repeatedly invoked the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which says no person shall be compelled in any criminal case "to be a witness against himself."''

    On his Twitter account he wrote....." "Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government." "

    Shkreli left early as he refused to answer any questions...just gave several kinds of facial smiles...which IMO were pretty creapy.

    "Representative John Mica, a Florida Republican, said he would consider asking fellow lawmakers to hold Shkreli in contempt for his behavior."

    Shkreli still faces other charges and is out on bond.

    Is it wrong to want to smack that smug look right off his face? I can not believe someone was so disrespectful while speaking to members of Congress. What a jerk.

    No one should be allowed to hold the cost of life saving drugs in their hands without any control over prices etc. The fact he was able to do this at all is just scary. Medications should not cost so much, it seems other countries have laws in place for stuff like this. And drug companies make fortunes here in the US.. Drug lobbyists are the worse. No wonder people go to Mexico and internet for drugs, the US pays more than any other country for our meds.

    Jury selection started out slowly in the trial of the price-gouging “pharma bro” Martin Shkreli, because potential jurors just don’t like him.

    “This is the price gouger of drugs,” one potential juror said. “My kids are on some of these drugs. This impacts my kids.”

    “I think he’s a very evil man,” said another woman. “I don’t think I can be fair. My opinion is pretty well formed. I wouldn’t want to serve on this jury.”


    But even jurors who had never heard of Shkreli seemed to hate him on sight.


    “I looked right at him, and in my head, I said, ‘That’s a snake’ — not knowing who he was,” said one woman.
