JEFFREY Epstein told Steve Bannon he supported the non-profit group #TimesUp and discussed jail suicide in a chilling 2019 interview.
The late millionaire pedophile claimed to be an advocate of Time’s Up, a group that raises money to support sexual harassment victims, during one of his final interviews before being detained on child sex trafficking charges.
As Epstein was interviewed by former White House aide Bannon for a documentary titled The Monsters, he admitted: “I’m a firm believer and supporter of Time’s Up.”
According to the New York Post, which obtained a portion of the interview, Epstein said: “I made my living from old thinking. But the future is for the way women think.”
His words prompted the political strategist to slam Epstein’s answer as “a sop for all of the depravity you’ve done against young women.”
But Epstein fired back in support of his stance, saying: “No, I’ve been…
“I’ve always believed that women will be, in fact, be able to take over.”
He then revealed his support for Time’s Up, which was founded in 2018 by more than 300 women in entertainment and aims “to create a society free of gender-based discrimination in the workplace and beyond,” according to the foundation’s website.
A two-minute trailer for the documentary revealed some of Epstein’s commentary on his relationship with elites who worked with him, The Post explains.
Epstein also talked about the potential repercussions of solitary confinement.
He told Bannon: “The greatest threat to people put in solitary confinement is they try to kill themselves.
“Imagine that. You’re only in a room for 24 hours, you start to go crazy.”
The 66-year-old wealthy financier — who socialized with high-profile celebs and was a convicted sex offender — was found dead in his prison cell after committing suicide on August 9, 2019.
He was discovered dead two weeks after he was placed on suicide watch while awaiting trial for child sex trafficking.
Law enforcement officials confirmed on August 10 he had taken his own life at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, which is where he had been held without bail pending trial on child sex-trafficking charges.
Chief Medical Examiner Dr Barbara Sampson announced on August 16, 2019, that the death was a “suicide.”
She said she made the determination “after careful review of all investigative information, including complete autopsy findings.”
Epstein’s autopsy revealed that the financier had multiple broken neck bones, often consistent with strangulation.
During his autopsy, Epstein was found to have broken his hyoid bone, which is near the Adam’s apple in men, according to the Washington Post.
Although hyoid breaks can occur during a hanging, experts told the paper the fracture is more common in strangulation victims.
