In one of the worst trades since the Minnesota Vikings traded twelve players to the Dallas Cowboys for Herschel Walker, American-hating Russian jailbird and former WNBA “star” Britney Griner has been traded for convicted arms dealer Viktor Bout. It has been long rumored that a trade of some sort was being arranged; however, the Russian government reportedly refused at times to even answer calls from Joe Biden about the matter. The Biden camp kept mum on Griner’s situation, outraging many in the sports world and leftist media.
It should be recalled that Griner attempted to enter Russia to play overseas basketball but violated their laws when she was arrested in possession of a vape pen with hashish oil. A stupid move, and a clear violation of Russian law. However, when Griner was detained and not turned back over to American authorities, leftist activists and sports figures lost their collective minds. The deal with Russia to get Griner back has some interesting pieces and some missing ones as well. Check this out.
WNBA star Brittney Griner has been released from Russian detention in a prisoner swap for convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Griner is now in the custody of American officials, a US official told CNN. President Joe Biden is expected to speak at 8:30 a.m. ET, the White House said, though it did not immediately specify the topic.
The swap did not include another American that the State Department has declared wrongfully detained, Paul Whelan.
This is great news till you Google who Victor Bout is and realize Biden just got taken to the woodshed on this deal. This has to go down as the most lopsided trade in the history of trades. What happened to Griner was beyond fucked but this feels like a short sighted PR stunt https://t.co/gS3wn5Me7O
