Brittany Griner’s wife tells ABC she wants the WNBA star home

Brittany Griner’s wife, Cherrell, wants President Joe Biden to secure the release of her partner, doing whatever is necessary to bring the WNBA star home from Russia where she has been detained for more than three months has gone.

“I just keep hearing that, you know, he has power. He’s a political pawn,” said Cherrell, who knows everything he knows about Griner’s detention during an interview that aired Wednesday on Good Morning America. “So if they’re holding her because they want you to do something, I want you to do it.”

The Phoenix Mercury Center has been detained since February 17 after vape cartridges allegedly containing cannabis oil were found in its luggage at an airport near Moscow.

Griner, 31, – a two-time Olympic gold medalist for America – faces drug trafficking charges, which carry a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison. Earlier this month, the Biden administration said Griner was being unfairly detained.

Cherrell has spoken to Secretary of State Antony Blinken about Griner’s case, but not to the president.
