In “About Damn Time” News… The U.S. has reportedly made a “substantial proposal” to Russia to secure the release of WNBA star Brittney Griner and former U.S. Marine Paul Whelan.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken made the announcement yesterday.

Sources claim the plan is to trade US prisoner Viktor Bout for Whelan and Griner.

The plan received the backing of President Joe Biden and overrides opposition from the Department of Justice, which is generally against prisoner trades.

Do you think it’s a good idea to trade prisoners or does it encourage other countries to arrest more Americans?
