Martin Shkreli is headed to Washington, DC for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, according to the New York Post.

Shkreli received permission on Wednesday from a federal judge to travel outside of New York while free on $5 million bail.

The travel is for ‘speaking engagements’ and a ‘social engagement’ in Washington, D.C., at the time of the inauguration.

The 33-year-old was arrested in 2015 on securities fraud charges, Shkreli’s bail conditions limited his travel to the confines of New York City, several counties north of the city, and Long Island.

Prosecutors didn’t object to Shkreli’s travel plans, the filing says.

Shkreli first gained notoriety in 2015, when his drug company raised the price of an outdated drug, Daraprim, by more than 5000% in order to fund further research and development.
