You would agree that he had been there for quite a while tho right? Add on we had to trade something for him, and there are other Americans who have been incarcerated there longer than BG. They could argue she is getting WAY more attention despite them being there first. So to say there is "no reason", I don't know about that. She's being held by our opps who we are currently instrumental in them taking a huge L for the past few months. Putin is embarrassed. I think that's a fairly significant, even if unjust reason.The US government just exchanged an imprisoned Russian drug trafficker for American marine Trevor Reed who had been locked up in Russia for three years. They just made this deal in April so there is no reason why Griner should still be over there.
