UPDATE: Mr. Brafman “Opened The Door” Last Night… “The Truth Will Always Be Far Stranger…”

We are presently awaiting reliable word on what Mr. Hassan was asked — on direct — but I would bet it included confirming the testimony of his daughter, of yesterday.

That testimony said that Mr. Shkreli was throwing the elder Mr. Hassan’s name around, to try and woo investors in Mr. Shkreli’s various ventures — and was doing so with a knowing (mens re) falsity. That, I bet is what he’s here to confirm — since Mr. Brafman so helpfully opened the door (for the prosecution), by berating the witness yesterday, on truthfulness, among other matters.

Meanwhile, Mr. Shkreli took the lunch break to berate the press pool, in the overflow room — calling the Eastern District of NY US Attorney’s Office the “Junior Varsity” team… before Mr. Brafman could drag him away. Charming.

#MartinShkreli said he didn’t consider taking any deal that may have been offered him from @EDNYnews…

Condor opines: That would be because it is likely that the only offer was… “here’s an orange jumpsuit…. Go do 20. That’s our firm and final deal/offer.” Heh.
We will of course report, when we know more — but consider this a great placeholder.
