A jury found the former hedge fund manager guilty on two counts of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud.
Federal prosecutors on Thursday filed a court motion asking a judge to revoke Martin Shkreli's bail and throw him in jail because of recent threats the so-called "Pharma Bro" allegedly made against Hillary Clinton.
Kasulis and Smith said that the Secret Service has sought to interview Shkreli but he declined, saying on his Facebook page, "I am declining that interview - schedule is full". He has offered to sell his one-of-a-kind Wu-Tang Clan album on eBay and, in another Facebook post, the former hedge funder linked to a friend's auction of a fidget spinner that once belonged to Shkreli.

Major coastal flooding is possible, threatening to cut off many coastal areas, including routes to and from barrier islands. The order remains in effect for Jasper, Colleton and Beaufort counties , though some hospitals have asked for waivers.
"So on HRC's book tour, try to grab a hair from her", Shkreli posted on his Facebook page on September 4.
In their motion, federal prosecutors are asking a judge to revoke the former pharmaceutical executive's $5-million bond in order to take him into custody over what they say is unsafe public conduct. "We take the matter seriously and intend to address the issue responsibly". He was accused of defrauding investors by lying about the performance of funds he controlled and raiding his company's assets to provide "returns" to investors. I will be peacefully protesting the Hillary Clinton book signing in NYC, chanting "lock her up" with my friends, though. As for the post about Clinton, he said, "It was just a prank". But prosecutors note that Shkreli's apparent animus towards Clinton includes standing outside her daughter Chelsea's home when Clinton was reportedly there recuperating after falling sick. The sooner they can put him behind bars and take away all venues through which he can continue to harass and belittle other women, the better.
The trial prosecutors also confirmed a confusing post of Shkreli's from earlier in the week, in which he claimed to have been sought for questioning by the Secret Service. "Instead I received scorn from at least one of their (least-intelligent) members, and the world at large failed to see my objective of putting a serious value behind music", he groused in the listing.
