Dennis Rodman Headed to Russia to Negotiate the Release of Brittney Griner


Earlier this month WNBA player Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in a Russian penal colony after being convicted of drug smuggling [click here if you missed that]. 

Now retired NBA player Dennis Rodman claims he has gotten permission to negotiate Brittney Griner's release...

From NBC News
Former NBA player Dennis Rodman said Saturday that he plans to visit Russia to seek the release of Brittney Griner, the WNBA star who was sentenced to nine years in prison on drug charges earlier this month.
"I got permission to go to Russia to help that girl," Rodman told NBC News at a restaurant in D.C. "I'm trying to go this week."
If Rodman goes to Russia, it won't be the first time he has conducted informal diplomacy with an international leader who has strained relations with the U.S.
Rodman has cultivated a relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over the past decade, making multiple visits to the hermit kingdom. He called Russian President Vladimir Putin "cool" after a 2014 trip to Moscow. In 2018, he showed up on the sidelines of former President Donald Trump's meeting with Kim in Singapore. And he has credited himself with helping to secure the release of American Kenneth Bae from North Korea.

Rodman is NOT working with the Biden Administration, who have already begun prisoner swap conservations with Russian for Griner.

If he can get her out, let him. Hopefully he can negotiate intel for the blacks missing/locked up in these other countries as well. If he got cool points like that, I know who to call if I'm traveling and in need.

Yeah...ok. Last I heard about Dennis he was being accused of helping some white people shoplift but anyhoo, let's see if this true. At this point, what the hell. I don't see any other celebrities trying to bring her home.

I'm glad to see that he isn't working with biden's administration. If Rodman is successful then it is Rodman who should take credit for his success. Biden does not want to deal with her mess, anyway. She is not a valuable enough bargaining chip for them.

I love the idea of a Black man using his resources and network to help his sista and colleague in her time of need.
