Brittney Griner's wife wants President Biden to help her get back to the United States

Brittney Griner texted her wife, Cherelle, while being held by Russian police, but her phone was soon removed.
The Griners haven’t spoken in almost 100 days, relying instead on infrequent letters for communication. Cherelle wants to talk to President Joe Biden about bringing her wife back to the United States.

The two-time Olympic gold champion for Team USA has been arrested since February 17 after vaping cartridges containing cannabis-derived oil were allegedly discovered in her possession.

“I just keep hearing, ‘he has the power,”she’s a political pawn,’” Cherelle stated during a ‘Good Morning America’ interview on Wednesday. “I want you (Biden) to do something if they’re holding her because they want you to do something.”

Griner now faces drug smuggling charges that could land her in prison for 10 years. Griner’s original detention date was set to end on May 19, but Russia extended her pre-trial detention another 30 days.

Griner was overseas, playing basketball for a team in Russia to supplement her WNBA income.”BG would wholeheartedly love to not go (play) overseas,” her wife said. “She has only had one Thanksgiving in the states in the nine years that she has been pro and she misses all that stuff because she can’t make enough money in the WNBA to sustain her life.”
