The rest of the story of Martin Shkreli’s testimony on Capitol Hill today.
What you couldn’t see on the radio in that clip of him taking the 5th I played was the wise-guy smirk on his face the whole time.
Lawmakers were clearly not amused.
Just after he left the hearing he tweeted:
Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government.
