Martin Shkreli Tells Reporter He Can "Do Whatever He Wants"--Lawyer Scrambles To Recover

By

It's been an eventful week for Martin Shkreli.

Shkreli, AKA "Pharma Bro," who gained notoriety for acquiring and jacking up the prices of a life-saving drug used by AIDS patients by  5,000%, officially started his trial for securities fraud on Wednesday.

It took several days to finally select impartial jurors for the trial, as many took issue with Shkreli's past actions.
