"She added that she brought the vape canisters into Russia because she had packed in haste for her flight. In later testimony, griner described a confusing scene while being held at the airport, saying an interpreter provided by authorities translated only a fraction of what was being said to her, and that officials told her to sign documents, but no one explained any of it to me. She also said she was not informed of her rights. Her lawyers introduced evidence that griner was using the medicinal cannabis for chronic pain and injuries sustained during her career and included a letter from her doctor. Griner testified she was aware that cannabis oil was outlawed in Russia and had not intended to break the law or plan to smuggle anything into Russia. Trials in Russia proceed even after admissions of guilt, and there has been speculation her actions were an attempt to move the legal process along in hopes of a possible prisoner swap. Grinders slow moving case and her nearly 6 months behind bars have raised strong criticism among her supporters in the United States, including her wife, sherrell, that president Joe Biden was not doing enough to win her freedom. Griner sent a personal appeal to Biden and more than 1100 black female leaders urged the administration to make a deal to get Britney back home swiftly and safely and to meet with Britney's wife sherrell immediately.

Details of the proposal were not announced, though a person familiar with the matter said, the U.S. has offered to trade convicted Russian arms dealer Viktor bout for Whelan and griner. The person insisted on anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. Her detention was made public only after Russian troops moved into Ukraine, as relations between Russia and the United States hit new lows after Washington led the west in bringing sanctions against Moscow. Greiner's plight has been highlighted by her supporters at home, including top athletes, especially after little news emerged from her initial weeks of detention in Russia, where she had limited access to officials from the U.S. embassy. It was only in May that the State Department designated her as wrongfully detained, moving her case under the supervision of its special presidential envoy for hostage affairs, effectively the government's chief hostage negotiator. Elizabeth rood, the U.S. embassy's charge de fair, has attended the trial in the Moscow suburb of kimchi, where the airport is located and said that American officials are monitoring her case closely, along with those of all U.S. citizens detained or in prison in Russia.

The early results are encouraging. President Biden has responded a deal with Russia to bring griner home, which includes a potential prisoner swap between the two countries, remains in play. Greiner's guilty plea in Russian court on Thursday, which time confirmed through a grinder representative, caps off a busy week for her case. She has been held since February and could face ten years in prison after cannabis vape cartridges were found in her luggage in a Moscow airport. I'd like to plead guilty, your honor, griner reportedly told the court through an interpreter, but there was no intent. I didn't want to break the law. Griner said. According to reports, griner told the court that she packed in haste and carried the substances unintentionally. Greiner's next court hearing is scheduled for July 14th. On July 4th, a handwritten letter from griner, who has won a WNBA title, defensive player of the year award twice and two Olympic gold medals was delivered to The White House. As I sit here in a Russian prison alone with my thoughts, and without the protection of my wife, family, Friends, Olympic Jersey or any accomplishments, I'm terrified I might be here forever. Griner wrote. On the 4th of July, our family normally honors the service of those who fought for our freedom, including my father, who is a Vietnam War veteran. It hurts thinking about how I usually celebrate this day because freedom means something completely different to me this year. I realize you are dealing with so much, but please don't forget about me and the other American detainees. Please do all you can to bring us home. I voted for the first time in 2020 and I voted for you. I believe in you. I still have so much good to do with my freedom that you can help restore. I miss my wife. I miss my family. I miss my teammates. It kills me to know they are suffering so much right now. I am grateful for whatever you can do at this moment to get me home.

So TJ it's worth pointing out that this is the third time we have talked in covering this story. We last talked in late May when grinders official designation had been changed to wrongfully detained as we discussed. And that was crucial because for those unfamiliar, the U.S. strategy had gone from let's keep this case under the radar to let us now make sure that everybody in the world knows that Brittany griner does not deserve to be imprisoned. And the result of this one of them was that Brittany griner wife Shirley greiner, she began speaking to the media and began providing her own account of Britney's initial detainment. How did sherrell describe what had happened? Confusing dizzying even suddenly getting texts from Brittany saying, you know, they've got me I'm in this room. She started texting me around 2 a.m. that morning. Babe, babe, babe, wake up. They have me in this room, I don't know what's going on. And so I instantly text back who are they and what room. And she's like, the customs people they just grabbed me when I was going through, and they had me in this room. That exchange ended with Shirley saying, call when you can. She sent me a message and said they're rather take my phone. Don't text anymore. So I'm like, just call me when you can. You know? And so that was it. And now we're more than a 140 days. Passed it. They still have not been able to speak. A 141 days today, TJ of waiting for that phone call. And in the meantime, what has sherrell griner had to say about the response from the U.S. government thus far? She's been through it clearly. I mean, there are times where she's expressed real frustration with The White House, feeling like she wasn't getting the response that she needed. And then it really had a boil in late June when there was a supposed to be a phone call set up. She was going to call this office in Russia where Brittany was supposed to be so they could finally speak by phone and it didn't happen. The government ended up admitting that they forgot to staff the office. I have not physically talked to her. I had the chance, we finally got in a phone call approved and unfortunately our government, you know, made a mistake. And our answer in her phone calls. And so I haven't been able to talk to her yet. And afterwards, sherrell griner went off and said, you know, if they can't make a phone call happen, how can I trust them to bring her home? I will not be quiet anymore. I will find that balance of, you know, harm versus help and pushing our government to do everything that's possible because being quiet, they are not moving. They are not doing anything. And so my wife is struggling and we have to help her. The whole time, they were still trying to connect to not only with Britney, but with The White House. They were very clear that they wanted to get face to face with the president and vice president, thinking that's the best way to make the case. It finally got to a point where her best outlet or best path to The White House was just as speak out on television when she had the opportunity. I know that you want to speak with President Biden. Absolutely. I just keep hearing that he has the power. She's a political punch. So if they're holding her because they want you to do something, then I want you to do it. On the 4th of July TJ on Independence Day and all of the implications that that chosen date involves, Britney griner took a bold step, what did she do? She wrote a letter that was brought from, I believe, her lawyers sent to her representatives and then delivered to The White House, a handwritten letter, pleading directly to President Biden saying, don't forget me and the other detainees. It reads in part, as I sit here in a Russian prison, alone with my thoughts and without the protection of my wife, family, Friends, Olympic Jersey, or any accomplishments, I'm terrified. I might be here forever. She added, I realize you're dealing with so much talking to the president. But please don't forget about me and the other American detainees. Please do all you can to bring us home. Her language was also very deliberate. You know, keep in mind anything that she writes that she gets or that she sends from there. Everybody knows Russia's reading every single word of it. There was nothing she was going to send from there that

"News in Washington, D.C. with Nancy lynch Nancy. Thanks, Paul, police say the elect shooter at yesterday's Independence Day parade north of Chicago planned the incident over many weeks. 6 people were killed dozens of other sore wounded when shots were fired from a rooftop.

Primo exited the roof, he dropped his rifle and he blended in with the crowd and he escaped.

He was eventually pulled over by police and arrested still no motive is known. WNBA star Brittany griner has reached out directly to President Biden with a handwritten note asking him not to forget her while she's being held in Russia. Griner is scheduled to make another court appearance in a Moscow suburb this week, where Russian officials claim she has cannabis oil in her luggage. The U.S. says she's been wrongfully detained. In her letter to the president, grinder said she scared she might be held there forever. Britney's wife, sherrell griner spoke with CBS mornings. It breaks my heart when I hear her say that because BG is probably the strongest person that I know. So she doesn't say words like that. Lightly, that means she truly is terrified. That she may never see us again. And, you know, I share those same sentiments. Again, sharelle griner, she says so far they have not heard anything from President Biden. The reverend Al sharpton is also calling The White House to ease the way for him to make a prayer visit to see griner. Global news 24 hours a day on air and

"Convenes again later today for its fourth public hearing. This time hearing for mostly Republican officials on how former president Donald Trump and his allies tried to convince them to break the law and turn Trump election losses into wins. Georgia Secretary of State Brad raffensperger is expected to testify. The Supreme Court is back in session today and there are 18 cases remaining on the docket before the current term ends. One ruling may determine the future of abortion in the U.S., professor Deborah pearlstein at cardozo school of law says a compromise would still uphold a Mississippi law, which is a ban on abortion beyond 15 weeks, but it might stop short of the sweeping ruling that was in the leaked draft. Based on the leaked opinion that came out of the court, there are at least 5 votes for overturning the core premise of roe versus wade. And that draft was written in February and a lot of time has passed since then. And the big question is whether or not John Roberts, who took somewhat narrower position on the legality of the Mississippi law, will be able to forge some sort of compromise out of the middle of the court. Professor Deborah pearlstein at cardozo school of law. Xarel greiner, the wife of star Brittany griner, says they haven't spoken by phone in the four months since grinder's arrest in Russia on drug related charges. So big picture is I don't know how she is. The biggest picture of it all is the fact that not being able to hear her voice real time, I have no understanding besides what people tell me is my wife's condition. Sherrell griner says she was told by Brittany that she tried to call or Britney tried to call her nearly a dozen times to the American embassy in Russia on the couple's fourth anniversary Saturday, but they never connected since the phone line at the embassy was not staffed. Alabama's Republican primary is today other states conducting elections are Virginia and Georgia. Live from the Bloomberg interactive broker studios, this is global news
