Biden Administration Offers to Trade Convicted Russian Arms Dealer for Brittney Griner

WNBA star Brittney Griner, who has been detained in Russia on drug-related charges since February, could soon return to the U.S. after Secretary of State Antony Blinken revealed Wednesday that the Biden administration has offered a “substantial proposal” for the return of the basketball player and for fellow American Paul Whelan.  Blinken said during a press conference that the Biden administration made the proposal weeks ago and is hoping to speak to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov for the first time since Feb. 15. 

I don’t believe for a second that Vladimir Putin would speak to anyone from the Biden administration, much less even consider letting Brittney go.
