WNBA star Brittney Griner’s wife has blasted American President Joe Biden and vice president Kamala Harris for not doing more to get her wife out of Russia. Griner was detained that month for allegedly bringing cannabis oil into Russia, where it is illegal. On an appearance on MSNBC’s, The ReidOut Cherelle Griner told the host Joy Reid that she has not spoken to her wife since the 17th of February.

A call between Griner and her wife, via the US Embassy in Moscow, on Saturday in commemoration of their fourth anniversary, was unsuccessful since. According to the Associated Press, ‘the desk at the embassy where the phone rang was apparently unstaffed on Saturday’. When Griner was asked by Ried as to what the ‘Biden administration could do differently,’ Griner replied, “So, what I believe that the Biden administration can do differently is to actually take the words and the rhetoric, the rhetoric that they have and match them together”.

Griner explained, “For example, an American that’s deemed wrongfully detained, to my understanding, from what the State Department is saying, America will negotiate their release. It’s not a maybe. It’s a will. They will negotiate for their release”.

Griner said that while she has spoken to the Secretary of State and other officials, “The person that has the power, the Biden administration itself, being President Biden, Vice President Harris, I have not spoken to them”. She continued, “I have asked. I have requested. And, at this point, it almost feels like they’re indirectly telling me no.

“It almost feels like, indirectly, they have told us as a family they will not be with us, despite the fact that everybody is saying, when I do speak with people: BG is a top priority,” she said, riled with emotion. “We know she’s wrongfully detained. We’re doing everything, but the people that have the highest power, no they have not spoken to me or my family,” she concluded.
