US Offers Russian Arms Trafficker In Exchange for Brittney Griner

This week WNBA player Brittney Griner testified in Russian court after being arrested back in February on drug charges [click here if you missed that]. 

Now insiders are claiming the Biden administration is offering a Russian arms dealer in exchange for Brittney in a prisoner swap...

From CNN
After months of internal debate, the Biden administration has offered to exchange Viktor Bout, a convicted Russian arms trafficker serving a 25-year US prison sentence, as part of a potential deal to secure the release of two Americans held by Russia, Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan, according to people briefed on the matter.
These sources told CNN that the plan to trade Bout for Whelan and Griner received the backing of President Joe Biden after being under discussion since earlier this year. Biden's support for the swap overrides opposition from the Department of Justice, which is generally against prisoner trades.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday that "so far, there is no agreement on this issue."

I blame black ppl and celebrities for this -

They created a firestorm online about how the Biden administration wasn't doing enough for Brittany, and tried to turn the situation into racism. In their overzealous attempt to paint the Biden administration (i.e Democrats) as racist, or not prioritizing black ppl, they failed to realize what was really at stake; the Russians and Republicans knew if they created enough propaganda on social media, that black ppl would carry the torch of misinformation - while demonizing the Democrats in the process. Brittany needs to stay right where she is. Who knows what calamities Russia can initiate once the arms dealer is back on Russian soil. And for what? So that some mediocre WNBA athlete can return home to her gay lover? Black ppl can be such selfish, short sighted idiots! All y'all's understand is immediate gratifications and your own spoiled, selfish needs. This is why no other racial (or gay entity) takes us seriously; we're like whining toddlers who don't understand logic, politics, or macroeconomics. And then when Putin pushes the US to war, they'll blame Biden/Democrats for not doing enough to protect them from war - as if their own propaganda of "SAVE BLACK LIVES NOW!!" didn't factor into why a dictator was given an arms dealer.

This is an unbalanced deal. One is a harmless female ball player and the other an arms dealer. I'm sure we have some less threatening Russians in our prisons, send one of them.

@8:31 AM You should have had someone read the post to you before you went on your rant fueled by self-hatred. Paul Whelan, the OTHER PRISONER MENTIONED IN THE POST, is not Black. Which community do you think is pushing for HIS release?
But, you've done a good job of describing yourself--a whining toddler who doesn't understand logic or politics.
