Steve Bannon filmed 15 hours of interview footage with Jeffrey Epstein, author claims

Right-wing firebrand Steve Bannon recorded hours of interviews with sex predator Jeffrey Epstein, ostensibly to help prep him for a 60 Minutes interview that was never filmed, according to author Michael Wolff.

The surprising incident in early 2019, months before Epstein’s arrest on sex trafficking charges, is recounted in Wolff’s upcoming book, Too Famous, according to the New York Times.

Relying on transcripts of what Epstein appears to think are practice interviews, Wolff writes that Bannon both interviewed and coached Bannon, advising him to look at the camera occasionally and warning him not to share his racist theories about how black people learn.

In the interviews at Epstein’s New York mansion, Bannon frequently advised Epstein to stick to his main message, namely that he is not a pedophile, according to Wolff.
