    I don't see any reason to help Whelan. He wasn't born here, he claims he is a citizen of the U.S., U.K., Ireland, and Canada where he was born. He got tossed from the marines for crimes including using someone else's social security number. His claims of working in Michigan law enforcement don't hold up. He has contacts in Russia from previous trips there and one of those contacts helped arrest him. Let the U.K, Ireland, or Canada get him out. He's too shady to help.

    I would have left Griner there just because she's a doper and too dumb to follow the laws overseas.

    Reports are that the Russians would not trade Whelan.

    I definitely would not have made this trade though.
    That is likely spin. I read that a major network, NBC I think, ran a sourced (by senior official, anonymously of course) story that Biden was offered one or the other but not both and he chose Griner

    That story was subsequently retconned to say Putin offered only offered Griner. I have not looked to see if an archived page exists for the original story



    "This was not a choice of which America to bring home." Really? Oh, but it clearly was a choice. And we know it was a choice because the first accounts of the prisoner swap with Russia said it was a choice. Earlier today, Andrea Mitchell of NBC — this is someone who's been in Washington covering news for more than 50 years, someone who is deeply supportive of the Joe Biden administration — contributed to a story that contained this line: "The Kremlin gave the White House the choice of either Griner or Whelan — or none." So Mitchell's piece attributed this fact to a "senior U.S. official." It was not a guess. It was sourced. And then, as with the early reporting on Paul Pelosi last month, that account was scrubbed and sanitized, and the new version of the NBC story assures us that: "The Kremlin ultimately gave the White House the choice of either Griner or no one."

    Wait.....what?
    We traded Nicholas Cage to Russia for a mediocre basketball player with lame tattoos, who plays for the wrong team, does anything she wants with her life, and craps on the country that afforded her those privileges?


    .........seems legit. :facepalm:

    Not unhappy to see her released but the trade is ridiculous.

    If you or I were prisoners in Russia they wouldn’t do this for us.

    Wow the willful ignorance of the left on social media.
    "She didnt deserve to be in prison! It was just CBD oil!

    :facepalm:

    Well first, Russia also categorizes CBD oil the same as pot. So even though it was "just cbd" and legal here, its not there.

    They are laughing at us. My only hangup is "American voters" wanted this. No the **** we didn't.

    Well I guess some did, some here voted for this.
    I read somewhere that this was the first time that every senator that was up for re-election got re-elected. If that is true, then the voters are pretty happy with the government they’ve got.
