Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton signs copies of her new book ‘What Happened’ during an event at a Barnes & Noble bookstore, Sept. 12, 2017, in New York City.

Shkreli, 34, last week in a Facebook post, urged his 70,000 or so followers to grab some of Clinton’s hair during her ongoing book tour — and said he would pay $5,000 per hair.

“I must confirm the sequences I already have,” wrote Shkreli, who in posts a week before said he had Clinton’s DNA and suggested he planned to clone her.

Shkreli later claimed the hair bounty offer was a joke. But unamused federal prosecutors asked a judge to revoke his $5 million bail, saying he was a danger to the community.

Judge Kiyo Matsumoto, agreed Wednesday, despite lengthy arguments by Shkreli’s lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, that Shkreli was not violent and did not represent a danger to Clinton or anyone else.
