Yes, it's getting some coverage over here. Prime Minister Johnson has said he'll ask President Trump directly to waive extradition: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/07/w...s-suspect.html

I think we should send her back. Waiving extradition would show that the US considers itself bound by the rule of law and will not always be the one demanding extradition from other countries (maybe we could trade her for Julian Assange?). The UK has respected, fair and independent courts in which she would get a fair trial. The UK is an invaluable ally of the US. Trump seems to really admire BoJo.

So of course the US will refuse extradition.
