Now the Biden White House is proposing a trade for the pot-smoking, anthem-hating, baller.
The Biden regime offered “Merchant of Death” Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout for the angry, pot-smoking WNBA star.
Brittney is famous for voicing her opposition to playing the American national anthem before basketball games.
She says America is racist.
Now she is begging the US to rescue her from a Russian penal colony.
And, of course, Democrats are more than will to trade a Russian arms dealer in exchange for this America-hating baller.
The New York Post reported on Viktor Bout.
Viktor Bout, an outlaw Russian arms dealer known as “The Merchant of Death,” is widely believed to be part of a proposed prisoner swap between the US and Russia for the safe return of Americans Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan.
Bout has been in US custody since 2008, when a secretive sting operation lead by the Drug Enforcement Administration captured him in Thailand.
Bout’s larger-than-life reputation makes it hard to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the arms trafficker’s resume. Much of his early life is unknown, but he’s believed to have been born in 1967 in then-Soviet Tajikistan. Bout was trained as a linguist at a Moscow military institute before serving with the Red Army as a translator in Angola.
Like many of the burgeoning oligarchs and tycoons to come out of the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Bout took advantage of the economic chaos that followed.
When the Soviet Union broke up, military equipment belonging to the superpower ended up scattered across the 15 new nations created by the dissolution. These countries had neither the money with which to keep an army paid, nor the infrastructure to keep inventory on the weapons they’d just inherited.
