Claiming a reunion with the WNBA star is a dream Brittney Griner’s wife Cherelle Griner still holds out for.
Said the WNBA star in a letter to President Joe Biden on July 4th: “fearful” that she will be held in Russia “forever,” she said.
” The words of Cherelle, who once described her wife as the “strongest person” she’s ever met,
are particularly wrenching in this context. According to Cherelle griner, in a July 5 interview with CBS Mornings, “she doesn’t say those things lightly.” “Because of this, it appears she is sincerely afraid that she would never see us once again. That’s exactly how I feel too, as you may have guessed.”
According to Cherelle, Brittney’s letter to the president was an attempt to assist her family to connect more effectively with the United States government. As Cherelle admitted, “I know my wife pretty well.” Brittney and Cherelle had only corresponded by mail. To put it another way, I believe she felt compelled to contact Vice President Biden because of our family’s history of stumbling blocks.
Cherelle continued, ” “There she is and she understands that we are doing all in our power to meet with the president and urge that they do everything in their power to get her home. Every time I write here and she asks, ‘Have you met him yet?’ it drives me insane. I’m sorry, but I can’t help it. And she says, ‘You know what, I’m going to write him and ask now since my family has tried and he has failed.’ As a result, I’m going to handle it on my own.”
A number of NBA and WNBA players have been vocal in their support for her release throughout her time in prison.
Even Nevertheless, those closest to Cherelle say they are doing their best to help her.
In order to avoid doing more harm than good to her wife, Cherelle explained, “Everything about this is a calculation for me.” This puts me in a precarious situation where I must balance advocating for her while also keeping in mind that anything I do could injure her. It’s a fine line I must tread.”
In spite of Cherelle’s claim that she was first advised to “keep silent,” she is unable to do so.
Respectfully, we’ve been over 140 days and it does not work,” Cherelle continued. “I did it.” “So, I’ll no longer be a mute witness. As long as they remain silent, they are not moving or doing anything, I will strike a balance between doing harm and helping our administration. And my wife is having a hard time, so we need to be there for her.”
As Brittney wrote in her letter to the White House, her message’s arrival on a national holiday had a more personal significance.
Brittney added, “On the 4th of July, our family generally respects the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father who is a Vietnam War Veteran.” This year, freedom means something very different to me, and thinking about how I typically celebrate this day stings
.” In mid-February, Brittney was detained at Moscow’s Vnukovo Airport for reportedly smuggling hashish oil-laced vape cartridges into the country. Phoenix Mercury star appeared in court on July 2, but she did not enter a plea in the case. In the event of a conviction, she may face up to ten years in prison.
A hearing in Brittney’s case has been set for July 7.
