WNBA Star Brittney Griner Sends Handwritten Letter to President Biden
WNBA star Brittney Griner sent a handwritten letter to President Biden pleading with him not to forget about her and other American detainees. In the letter, Griner said she’s ‘terrified’ she might be in Russian prison forever. The letter was delivered to the White House yesterday morning and three excerpts from it were made public while the rest has been kept private. Griner was arrested on February 17th at a Moscow Airport and Russian authorities claimed she had cannabis oil in her luggage and accused her of smuggling significant amounts of narcotic substance, an offense punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The first trial in her case was held Friday.
