Brittney Griner

Push for Griner's Release From Russia Continues

WNBA star Brittney Griner will appear in a Moscow court this morning on alleged drug charges, a day after President Biden offered “all available assistance” in response to an emotional plea for help from Griner. Griner was detained as tensions mounted between the U.S. and Russia over the invasion of Ukraine. Lawmakers in Washington have said Griner is being used as a political pawn, as Putin continues to gain territory in war-torn Ukraine. NBC’s Brie Jackson reports from Washington.
