Epstein claimed in an upcoming documentary “The Monsters” to be a “firm believer and supporter” in the anti-sexual harassment Time’s Up movement, The New York Post reported Tuesday.

“I made my living from old thinking. But the future is for the way women think,” Epstein told Bannon in the documentary’s trailer, exclusively obtained by The New York Post.
Bannon responded to Epstein’s comment and characterized it as “a sop” in an attempt to excuse”all of the depravity [he’s] done against young women,” the outlet reported.
“No, I’ve been – I’ve always believed that women will be, in fact, be able to take over,” Epstein said. “I’m a firm believer and supporter of Time’s Up.” (RELATED: Jeffrey Epstein Paid $5 Million To Three Sex Trafficking Victims)

The select committee charged with investigating the Capitol riot on Jan. 6 recommended holding Steve Bannon in contempt of Congress in a report Tuesday night.
