CNN’s Dana Bash Has Wacky New Russia Conspiracy Theory

CNN’s Dana Bash offered up a new wacky conspiracy theory about Russia and its arrest of now-convicted drug smuggler Brittney Griner, an American WNBA player.

The Daily Wire reports:

The Biden administration is reportedly attempting to obtain a release for Griner and also U.S. citizen and former Marine Paul Whelan, who was arrested on espionage charges, by trading them for Russian weapons trafficker Viktor Bout, was convicted on terrorism in 2011 after attempting to sell missiles to the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) in order to shoot down U.S. military helicopters.

CNN National Security Correspondent Kylie Atwood noted, “I do think it’s important to note that administration officials are saying that when it comes to a potential prisoner swap to get Brittney Griner and Paul Whelan and other Americans who’s wrongfully detained in the country, to get them release, that the ball is in Russia’s court now.”

Bash turned to CNN Senior International Correspondent Fred Pleitgen, to make her intersectional point: “Fred, since you have been in touch with the defense for all these months, let’s just get real. How much of this is because she is a six-foot-nine, black, lesbian American?”

Pleitgen gave her support, saying, “Well, I think that the last part, especially being an American is obviously one of the big issues and certainly something that may have led to a tougher verdict here. Of course — we, of course, always have to say that, you know, especially someone who is lesbian or gay here in Russia has a really, really tough time.”

Dana Bash’s story sounds like something straight out of a Steven King novel. And she is the main character.

Let’s not forget who we are putting our national security in danger for. A individual who looks without top like a male. Acts like a boy playing the role of a girl. And worse. This individual WILLFULLY AND KNOWINGLY CHOSE TO GO TO A COUNTRY KNOWN FOR ARRESTING AMERICANS AND USING THEM AS TOOLS FOR GAINS OVER THE USA. SHE IS AN INDIVIDUAL WHO TURNED THEIR BACK ON HER NATION WITH THE KNEELING FOR THE ANTHEM. FUNNY HOW SHE HATED AMERICAN UNTIL IT WAS UP TO AMERICA IF SHE SITS IN A GOLANG FOR A DECADE. WHAT WILL CHANGE WHEN SHE GETS BACK. HER JOB OF CHOICE IS A JOB THAT HAS KICKING AMERICANS IN THE FACE AND HARMING AMERICAN NATIONAL DEFENSE AND SECURITY AS PART OF IT’S MOTO. WILL SHE SUDDENLY FIND HER PATRIOTISM OR WILL IT BE BUSINESS AS USUAL FOR HER YET WE HAVE TO LOOK OVER OUR SHOULDER FOR YET ANOTHER BUGGY MAN. WE HAVE CHINA USING DEMS AND THEIR SECRET BANK ACCTS AGAINST US. WE HAVE BIDEN FLY IN ABOUT A THOUSAND TALIBAN TERRORIST AND THATS JUST THE ONE HE FLEW IN. WE HAVE NO CLUE HOW MANY SNEAKED IN THRU THE OPEN BORDERS BIDEN/HARRIS HAVE BEEN USING TO MURDER, KILL AMERICANS BY THE MILLIONS. THEY DUMPED A DEADLY PATHOGEN AND DRUG IN OUR COMMUNITIES. DON’T FORGET THAT. NOW THEY WANT TO RESCUE THIS ANTI-AMERICAN HATER AT THE COST OF THE BLOOD SWEAT AND TEARS, LIVES OF VICTIMS KILLED BY THAT SERIAL KILLER AND WEAPONS DEALER OF RUSSIAN DESENT.

It has been suggested that Ms. Griner would be placed in a very tough Russian prison camp. Instead,the U.S. government will trade her for true Russian criminals, bring her back to the U.S. that she hates, and set her free. My opinion is that the Russians should keep her.

We MUST get her back. As a black, female, lesbian,very tall, (and possibly left-handed) who dislikes the national anthem, and, by extension, the USA, she is perfectly selectable as an inclusion member of the current government administration.
