@MarshaBlackburn  @marcorubio  to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver: “it is our understanding that the NBA has not been forthcoming with members of the Senate regarding questions surrounding the NBA’s relationship with the Xinjiang basketball academy. If true, this is unacceptable.”

I shudder to think what Chinese officials are now doing to this Uighur detainee after he smuggled out video and text messages detailing the brutal conditions in which Beijing has detained one million Uighur and other Turkic Muslims in Xinjiang.
