Pennsylvania pastor insists he was ‘counseling’ nude man bound with rope in parked car

A Pennsylvania pastor insists there’s an innocent explanation for him sitting in a parked car with a naked man who was bound with rope.

George Nelson Gregory, of Munhall, was cited about 11:30 p.m. Friday after police investigated a report of a suspicious vehicle parked in a Homestead neighborhood, reported KDKA-TV.

A homeowner told police that a man wearing no clothing got out of the car, and he was concerned because it was parked within sight of his daughter’s window.

Officers found the 61-year-old Gregory sitting in the back seat, and another man completely nude and bound with nylon rope sitting in the front seat.

The pastor told police they occasionally met up to “play with each other,” and the other man agreed their activity was consensual.

“I have nothing to hide, I did nothing wrong,” Gregory told the TV station after his arrest for open lewdness and indecent exposure.

He said police were investigating whether anyone in the car was intoxicated or unconscious, but Gregory said he was acting as a pastor before his arrest.

“I was counseling a young man with a drug problem,” Gregory said. “It did turn strange, but it wasn’t my doing, OK? And I was adamant that I’m not participating in that way, and so that’s when the police pulled up, and they assume things, but I’m standing by my story. It’s not true.”

Gregory said he has worked with the man for several years, and he and his wife have tried to get him help.

“I won’t deny that he began to take his clothes off and propositioned me, but I will deny, on a stack of Bibles with God as my witness, that I did nothing,” Gregory said.

The pastor said he was fully clothed, so he doesn’t understand why he was charged with open lewdness.

The other man was also cited in the incident, but it’s not clear what charges he faces.

Appearing on CBS's “Face the Nation," Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) attempted to blame Donald Trump's impeachment problems on "grifters" who found a way to attach themselves to the now-president when he began to run for president.

Speaking with host Margaret Brennan, Cornyn was asked about allegations made by Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas that have implicated not only the president but Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House officials in an attempt to strongarm the leaders of Ukraine in return for military aid.

"Doesn't it trouble you that [Parnas] was working so closely with Rudy Giuliani, who was acting on the president's behalf and saying he was acting on the president's behalf?" host Brennan asked. "

‘No sound basis’: Georgetown law professor explains why Alan Dershowitz will crumble under Senate questioning

Georgetown law professor John Mikhail suggested on Sunday that the portion of President Donald Trump's defense which is being covered by Alan Dershowitz to fail because it has "no sound basis" in history and law.

"There is no sound basis for Alan Dershowitz to claim that abuse of power is not an impeachable offense. In addition to being at odds with common sense, this claim is contradicted by a clear and consistent body of historical evidence," Mikhail stated.

The law professor cited the impeachment of Warren Hastings in the 1780s.

"Some of the best evidence comes from the case of Warren Hastings, which informed the drafting Art. II, Sec 4," Mikhail wrote. "The fact that he was not guilty of treason, but still deserved to be impeached, was a major reason 'other high crimes and misdemeanors' was added to the Constitution."

Speaking with host Alex Witt, Omarosa -- who wrote an insider's account of life in the White House after she was unceremoniously fired -- said there was little in the new book that surprised her.

Digging into her Oval Office days, the former adviser and longtime Trump associate described the president's "zero to 200" screaming jags when displeased.
