‘Abusive’ Alabama family lies to police about daughter being ‘sex trafficked’ by an Indian man she’s dating

Published

on

An Alabama family called police in India and told them their daughter had been “trafficked” by a man she’d flown to the country to meet — but according to the 21-year-old woman, they were lying.

AL.com reported that in mid-September, Whitney Harris made the long flight to India to meet 20-year-old Pulkit Monga, a man she’d connected with online two years prior.

“I left to India to meet my friend and to get away from my abusive mother and grandmother who have mentally and emotionally abused me all my life,” Harris told the website. “I didn’t want them to save me.”

The family went against her wishes, however, when they first had a Christian minister in the city of Amritsar “intercept” her and then came to collect her themselves 10 days later.

Harris’ mother Destiny and father Brett met Monga’s hospitable parents who took them to holy sites and restaurants — all while “slandering” them behind their backs.

Despite not wanting to leave India yet, Harris agreed to buy a return plane ticket to assuage their concerns, but before she was able to book it, “her mother allegedly sent a letter to the local Indian police claiming that Pulkit was a rapist, had drugged their daughter and was a sex trafficker,” the report noted.

After Harris and the Mongas were interrogated by police, the young woman’s family conspired with people from the local Christian church to get her to the airport and out of the country.

According to the report, Harris refused to see her parents upon arrival back home in Alabama — and is working to reunite with Monga as soon as she can.

Along with accusing her family of abuse, the young woman also said family spokesman Jimmy Stewart lied to media about why she went to India.

“Jimmy said that [Pulkit] is poor and his family is poor which is a lie, they are middle-upper class in India and his father earns good money,” Harris told AL.com in an email. “How would [Stewart] know anything different?”

The family also alleged that the friend she is staying with is purposefully keeping her from them — “another lie,” Harris said.

‘The worst day of the presidency so far for Donald Trump’: Advisor to four presidents

Published

on

President Donald Trump has not had a worse day in office than he suffered on Friday, according to a top former White House advisor.

David Gergen served in the administrations of Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. He was interviewed Friday night by CNN's Anderson Cooper.

"If you are looking to throw somebody under the bus, Gordon Sondland would probably be a prime candidate to be next in line to be thrown under the bus," Cooper said.

"I think the president will wait patiently to see what he says and then decide," Gergen replied.

He then offered his analysis of the situation.

Chris Hayes breaks down the ‘busy day in the criminal chronicles of one President Donald J. Trump’

Published

MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes connected the dots between all of the bombshell news that was reported Friday in the impeachment hearings into President Donald Trump.

"Good God, today has been ten days and this week has been ten weeks," Hayes said. "And there are a million things happening at once."

"Just in the past couple of hours, for instance, we just got this incredibly incriminating and damning behind closed doors testimony from a U.S. foreign service officer that was still supposed to be kind of like the B-story today, the sideshow," he explained. "It's a guy who works in the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, a guy named David Holmes. He testified behind closed doors that he could hear president Trump talking on the phone to the U.S. Ambassador to the European Union who was an inaugural donor, and they were in a restaurant in Kiev and the president was shouting so loudly on the phone that [Gordon] Sondland had to hold the phone away from his ear because it was hurting his eardrum, so then everyone could hear."

Friday's bombshell, behind-closed-door testimony from David Holmes has made White House aides unhappy, but the bad news for the administration did not stop there.
