'I'm a supporter of Time's Up'

The late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein stunningly claims in an upcoming documentary that he was a “firm believer and supporter” of the anti-sexual harassment Time’s Up movement.

During one of the last interviews Epstein gave before being busted on child sex-trafficking charges in 2019, the multimillionaire financier and notorious serial sex offender against underage girls, told filmmaker Steve Bannon, “I made my living from old thinking. But the future is for the way women think.”

Bannon counters that Epstein’s claim was just “a sop” to excuse “all of the depravity you’ve done against young women.”

“No, I’ve been — I’ve always believed that women will be, in fact, be able to take over,” Epstein responds in the clip, which was obtained by The Post.

With a straight face, the pervert improbably added: “I’m a firm believer and supporter of Time’s Up.”

The Time’s Up movement grew out of the avalanche of sexual harassment allegations against various high-profile men in the wake of Pulitzer Prize-winning reports by the New York Times and the New Yorker about Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, who’s now serving a 23-year prison sentence for rape and sex abuse.

Last month, the entire board of the official Time’s Up organization — including TV producer Shonda Rhimes and actress Eva Longoria — resigned over a scandal involving advice its leaders gave then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo after he was accused of sexual harassment.

The documentary explores the relationship between Epstein and international elites — based on hours of testimony from Epstein explaining how they worked together on research into “transhumanism,” the producers said.

Epstein’s comments are contained in a two-minute trailer for “The Monsters” that’s being co-produced by Bannon, an ally of ex-President Donald Trump who’s facing a potential criminal contempt charge for refusing to cooperate with a congressional probe into the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol.

During the interview with Bannon, Epstein — who hanged himself in the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan a little more than a month after his blockbuster arrest — also discussed the impact on prisoners of being locked up alone.

“The greatest threat to people put in solitary confinment is they try to kill themselves,” he said preciently.

“Imagine that. You’re only in a room for 24 hours, you start to go crazy.”

Epstein, 66, was able to spend up to 12 hours a day outside his cell by holding lengthy meetings with members of his legal team.

He wasn’t on suicide watch when he killed himself but two former correction officers agreed to perform community service to avoid prosecution for covering up their failure to periodically check on him, as required.

Epstein’s former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, is being held without bail pending trial over allegations she recruited underage girls — including one who was just 14 — for Epstein to abuse.
