  • Is best known for raising the price of a life-saving medication from $13.50 to $750 a pill
  • Is also known for spending $2 million to buy the only copy of a Wu-Tang Clan album and saying he would destroy it unless Trump won
  • Later released tracks from that album, but only in videos showing him with the album playing in the background
  • Smirked his way through a congressional oversight hearing on drug prices
  • Took the Fifth on everything, including a question about the Wu-Tang album
  • Is currently on trial for an alleged $10-million investment-fraud scheme
  • Lawyers “struggled to seat an impartial jury” partly because he is so widely hated
  • One potential juror was excused after saying “The only thing I would be impartial about is which prison he goes to”
  • Another “mimicked wringing [his] neck“
  • Another complained that Skreli “disrespected the Wu-Tang Clan”
  • He totally did
  • Another was excused after stating that Skreli “kind of looks like a dick“
  • He totally does
  • Was described during opening statements as “strange,” “weird,” “nuts,” “dysfunctional,” “aggravating,” and “not 100 percent accurate“
  • And that was his own lawyer
More to come, most likely.
