Brittney Griner broke law and admitted guilt

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” In other words, play by the Russian rules. Because Brittney Griner broke their law, why do people say she is “wrongfully detained”? She admitted her guilt.

So what if Griner is a basketball and Olympic star. The rules don’t care if you are straight or queer, male or female, or a 7-footer.

A deal will be struck, allowing her a hero’s welcomce. To make this happen, a prisoner exchange will take place. Which side comes out ahead on that deal? Biden will agree to the exchange and take credit on getting her back. That way, he knows his approval rating will go up. This entire situation, is based on polltics being a game of chess.
