United States v. Martin Shkreli (PharmaBro)

Martin Shkreli was labeled “what's wrong with capitalism in America” after increasing the cost of certain life-saving medication for HIV+/AIDS patients over 5000% percent.  He was universally reviled and detested.  And then he was arrested and indicted on federal charges.  But Shkreli's indictment had nothing to do with the decision to raise the price of this crucial medication.  In this episode, Paul clarifies what federal laws Martin Shkreli was actually accused of breaking, and why it was so hard for him to get a fair trial.
