Brittney Griner's wife does interview with 'Good Morning America'

The wife of detained WNBA star Brittney Griner said the couple have been able to communicate via sporadic letters. 

Griner has been held for months in Russia where she faces a decade in prison if convicted of trying to bring marijuana into the country.

Speaking in Phoenix, Cherelle Griner told ABC’s "Good Morning America" that she wants to talk with President Joe Biden about bringing Brittney home.  

“I just keep hearing that he has the power. She’s a political pawn so if they’re holding her because they want you to do something, then I want you to do it,” said Cherelle Griner.

The Biden administration has said Brittney Griner is wrongfully detained.
