According to the New York Post, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon paid a visit early Wednesday morning to disgraced pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein at his Upper East Side mansion in New York.
Epstein’s palatial pad is one of his homes where young girls were allegedly brought in to perform massages and used as “sex slaves.”
Sources speculate that the disgraced Epstein wants to use his millions to work his way close to political power again.
One told us, “Bannon needs money to bankroll his political agenda. Epstein has plenty of money, and craves power and access.”
Though throwing his money to the politically powerful is not unusual for Epstein, he has generally gravitated toward Democratic politicians.
From 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed “The Lolita Express,” 26 times. Epstein is close to Prince Andrew and was a regular at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago.
In 2002, President Donald Trump had positive words for Epstein, telling New York Magazine: “Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.”
Epstein, 65, pleaded guilty in 2008 to soliciting prostitution from a teen and served 13 months in jail.
Last year, he reportedly paid millions to settle three lawsuits filed against him by teens. Bannon’s rep didn’t comment. A lawyer for Epstein said, “Let me ask him,” but didn’t respond by deadline.
