Now comes the big question: Can the White House get her released on a prisoner swap. The Kremlin wants a terrorist known as the “Merchant of  Death” in exchange.
That’s like swapping a peanut for an 18-wheeler.
Even if Paul Whelan, who’s been in a Russian prison since 2018 on charges of being a USA spy, is thrown in the deal, it seems like a big win for the Russians.
I expect a swap to be made. In America we value our citizens — even those who disrespect our flag by kneeling.
