"We know that there were some issues dealing with vape cartridges and other items but let me be very clear," Lee, who represents Griner’s hometown of Houston, Texas, in Congress, said on Saturday. "Brittney Griner is a United States citizen, she was a guest in Russia…and I will be demanding her release."

Uh uh. "We know that there were some issues...' Yeah, genius- the 'issues' are possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia in a foreign country. As far as I'm concerned, they should prosecute this chick to the full extent of their law. She was really stupid and she should pay for her stupidity.

A couple of things, Sheila- The Russians don't give the first fuck about your "demands" except that your impotent bullshit may make them more determined to throw the book at her.

Secondly, I am certain that if this chick was white or Asian, you'd be just as riled up and demanding. Oh, yes, I am sure of it.

Fucking clown

Oh, by the way, THIS is what's locked up over there right now;

Brittney Griner: National anthem has no place in WNBA, sports

Uh huh. Hey, Britt? Yeah, that country you dont give a fuck about? You aren't going to see it for quite a spell, shnookums. Enjoy. And don't worry- the Russians won't bother you with playing the Star Spangled Banner.

A couple of years at Club Siberia might open up a new career for her as a blues/rapper.

There has always been a lot speculation that Brittney Griner is really a man. In fact, when I first saw her (can't remember now the circumstances, but I immediately recognized her name when this story popped up) I had legitimately thought she was a he and just a transgender person.

Who the hell knows? Still sounds and looks like a man to me. I suppose the Russians will sort all that out.

Professional athlete caught with drugs in a foreign country.

She is clearly setting an awesome example.

Bitch picked a bad time to be an American breaking Russian drug laws. Then again: She doesn't like America, anyway. Now she gets to spend truly quality extra time away.

Former Pentagon official: Russia could use WNBA star Brittney Griner as 'high-profile hostage'

No, she is not a hostage. She broke the law and was caught at the airport.

No different than on National Geo's Locked Up Abroad.

What a way to get a reality check.
Couldn't have happened to a more deserving person.

In some places they don't tolerate that shit and don't care that you are a black female that spends her time playing a game.

She is a 6’7” genetic freak, not a dude.

Watch her play basketball, she is a clumsy larger than life female, not a former dude.

But this woman is way too big for her britches, a decade in Siberia will knock the hate off her.

There is so much wrong with this situation.

1) Member of a WNBA team caught with drugs
2) Member caught with drugs did so in a foreign country
3) Country where the violation occurred is not known for civil rights
4) Country where the violation occurred is known for severe penalties for drug offenses
5) Rationale for her release is that she is an American and therefore a guest, and apparently can't be prosecuted?
6) Further rationale is that since Russia started a war, apparently they aren't allowed to enforce their own laws
7) Response was demanded from the US State Department, which clearly at this point in time has nothing better to do than coddle an athlete

You can't make this crap up.....

There are teaming swarms of people in Eastern Europe that would literally give up everything to come to this country.

This moron who hates her country (even though it has made her rich for dribbling a ball around) goes and violates the law in a country we were/are on the brink of war with. It's only been on every news station for the last couple months.

Leave her there to rot and bring those here that want and deserve freedom and will appreciate this country.

With that Dennis Rodman starter kit she's got there she should have gone to North Korea instead. Lil' Kim might have smoked a fatty with her, because he's DOWN with the struggle, yo.

I think I'm indifferent to this person but I'm not sure. But if Sheila J. Lee wants to swap places with her, if it's that important, I'll send money and write letters.

Sadly, Potatus and his State Department will do more for this America hating trash, than the 13 heroes in Afghanistan or all those we left behind there close to seven months ago.

Once you leave U.S. soil, all the “my rights” are left behind. You are a guest in a foreign country.

Vlad might pull some strings just so he doesn’t have to listen to this Jackson Lee.

Actually Potato Head will work a deal in order to free she/he/they up for his next SCOTUS nomination. I mean she/he/they have valuable international law experience now.
