Jeffrey Epstein Discusses His ‘Beliefs’ On The Power Of Young Women In Resurfaced Interview
Re-emerged footage taken months before his suicide in jail reportedly shows disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein discussing his ‘beliefs’ on the power of young women.
During a 2019 interview with filmmaker and former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, the convicted sex offender could be heard declaring himself to be a ‘supporter of the Time’s Up Movement’.
This newly-released interview footage, which has been included in the trailer for upcoming true crime documentary The Monsters, also sees Epstein express his thoughts on solitary confinement, stating that he believed this increased the likelihood of suicide among prisoners.
In footage obtained by the New York Post, Epstein could be heard to say:
I made my living from old thinking. But the future is for the way women think.
Bannon then went on to suggest that such claims were merely ‘a sop’ intended to excuse ‘all of the depravity you’ve done against young women’.
However, Epstein stood firm on his original stance, arguing that he has ‘always believed that women will be, in fact, be able to take over’, before declaring himself ‘a firm believer and supporter of Time’s Up’.
Epstein also spoke about the effect of solitary confinement on inmates, telling 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.
Epstein was first registered as sex offender in 2008 after admitting to having solicited underage sex workers. In July 2019, Epstein was arrested on one count of sex trafficking a minor and one count of conspiring to commit sex trafficking.
He had been awaiting trial for additional sex charges against minors when he died by suicide while in solitary confinement at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan in August 2019.
Bannon has previously told the MailOnline he had filmed more than 15 hours of footage with Epstein for a then-unnamed documentary. It’s believed The Monsters is this same doc.
