Transcript: Martin Shkreli Apologizes for Hillary Clinton Comment

Martin Shkreli has apologized for threatening comments he made about Hillary Clinton — right before a hearing to decide if he keeps his freedom.

Last week, Shkreli told his Facebook followers to  "grab a hair"  from Clinton's head during her book tour.

He said he'd pay $5,000 per hair.  That prompted federal prosecutors to ask the judge overseeing Shkreli's fraud case to revoke his bail.

They argue that post, along with others, shows he is a danger to the community.

Shkreli is out on bail for that fraud case.

A jury found the former hedge fund manager  guilty on two counts  of securities fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit securities fraud.

In his apology, Shkreli said he "used poor judgment" and didn't intend to encourage violence.

He's requested that the judge not change his bail status.

A bail hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
