White Republicans are attacking President Joe Biden for freeing Black American Brittney Griner — WNBA player and two-time gold medal winning Olympic champion — from a Russian prison.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) — who has has promised to spend taxpayer money on investigations (based conspiracy theories) in 2023 — claimed that Hunter Biden was somehow involved in the prison swap with Russia, but failed to provide any evidence.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) called for Biden to be impeached for freeing Griner, but failed to name any law that Biden broke to justify impeachment.

The President of the United States traded Russian terrorist arms dealer, Viktor Bout, left a U.S. Marine in Russian jail, and brought home a professional basketball player.
How many people will Viktor Bout now kill bc Biden set him free?
Rep. Anthony Sabatini (R-FL) called for Biden to be impeached for freeing Griner.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) was also furious that Griner was released.
Americans deserve to know why Biden traded one of the most dangerous Russian arms dealers for Brittney Griner, while leaving behind military veteran Paul Whelan.— Rep. Dan Crenshaw (@RepDanCrenshaw) December 9, 2022

Lawyer Tom Mars posted Paul Whelan’s reported background to destroy the Republican narrative.
In an effort to discredit President Biden for recovering Brittney Griner, Tom Cotton and MTG have portrayed Paul Whelan as “a Marine” left behind, claiming Whelan was a bigger US priority because he had honorably served his country. … Nothing could be further from the truth. pic.twitter.com/0pOJskudOP— Tom Mars (@TomMarsLaw) December 8, 2022
