'Best news ever!' Kim Kardashian's trip to the White House pays off

Trump May Pardon 63-Year-Old Woman After Meeting With Kim Kardashian 'Best news ever!' Kim Kardashian's trip to the White House pays off

The KUWTK later revealed, "The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories".

Johnson, 63, had her case brought to Trump's attention after Kardashian West visited the White House last week to speak with the president. "Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates".

Alice Johnson was released from federal prison hours after Mr. Trump's order, with footage showing her running toward her family, throwing her arms open wide and embracing them in front of a crowd. "This is not a publicity thing for her. Kim told me when she left that White House meeting that no matter how this turns out she would never stop fighting for me until I come home".

"I would tell President Trump thank you so much".

Since her release, she's had a chance to reconnect with her family after more than two decades behind bars, which she calls "the most exhilarating feeling".

Trump has commuted Ms. Johnson's sentence.

Kardashian West became a public advocate for Johnson at the end of 2017 when she stumbled upon a video published by Mic that tells the woman's story. In 1993, she was arrested and accused of participating in an operation that trafficked drugs, including cocaine, and was involved in money-laundering.

"I read it so many times". "That I am going to be that one that is going to make you so proud and I hope that my life will encourage him to do this for others, too", Johnson said in an interview on CBS This Morning Thursday.

Hers was not a miscarriage of justice case - Ms Johnson was guilty, but her lawyers argued the sentence was unduly harsh for a first time, non-violent offender.

"My plan is to start work, I already have a job secured", Johnson said, "and my plan is also to work hard on helping to change some of these laws".

Kardashian West announced the "BEST NEWS EVER!".

Denied clemency three times during the Obama administration, Johnson says this time it felt different.

On her first full day of freedom, she gave thanks for her second chance, and the man who granted it. "I didn't even know life was on the table until after the trial", said Johnson.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think Kim Kardashian would take my cause on", Johnson said.
