Brittney Griner’s wife and Joe Biden discuss her prison release

Brittney Griner has finally been released from Russian prison. This is the news the world woke up to. It has taken nearly two years, but Griner is now back in US custody. Last year, BG’s case began making national headlines. There was pressure on the president to intervene. As a result, Joe Biden and the White House staff began negotiating with Russia. The proposal was one Russian in US custody to be sent back in exchange for Griner, this morning that happened.

Brittney Griner was only in Russia under a basketball contract. While she plays in the WNBA, her salary was not enough to sustain her lifestyle. As a result, Griner took on a contract with a Russian team. However, the laws are different in Russia, as opposed to the United States. When Griner was traveling back into Russia, her belongings were searched. There, it was discovered that she had illegal substances on her, leading to her arrest.

Brittney Griner is free, so her wife, Cherelle Griner, is in Washington, DC with the White House staff. After news broke of Griner’s release, President Joe Biden, along with Vice President Kamala Harris held a press conference with Griner’s wife. Both Biden and Cherelle Griner spoke on BG’s release from Russian custody. They have also discussed what will take place, next. Since Griner has been held in Russia, many NBA players, most notably LeBron James, have spoken out in support of her.
