Re: Russia frees US basketball star in swap with arms dealer Bout

Re: Russia frees US basketball star in swap with arms dealer Bout

Republicans now have another issue to bash Biden with. Sorry, but this was a terrible decision, mostly by Democrats to pander to certain voters. This is also an insult to others, including a Marine still captive in Russia and to Ukraine. Putin looks good to his fellow Russians, a win over the USA. ...
