  • Kim Kardashian West and President Donald Trump

"So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson".

Reality television star Kim Kardashian met with Trump last week to discuss pardoning Johnson.

"I plan on continue to work hard to use my case as an example for prison reform and sentencing reform to make a difference", she said. After her marriage fell apart, she lost her son in an accident, and she lost her job, Johnson became involved with a drug ring that transported and distributed cocaine.

The 1994 indictment described dozens of deliveries and drug transactions, many involving Johnson.

Kim Kardashian will most likely be traveling this week to meet Alice, as the great-grandmother adjusts to life outside of prison.

"I think that she really deserves a second chance at life", she told the website.

Then, after saying she screamed when she got the news, she also took time to thank both Kardashian and Trump for her new freedom.

"Best News Ever!" the reality-TV star tweeted of the news of Johnson's release, later adding additional thanks to the administration for its efforts. "I feel like my life is starting over again". "I'll never forget what you have done, not only for me, but for my family".


- Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) June 6, 2018BREAKING: President Trump has granted clemency to #AliceMarieJohnson after meeting with @KimKardashian West to talk about her case last week.

Alice Johnson, 63, said Mr Trump had given her another chance in life and restored her to her family.

Kahn-who's worked with everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Dr. Dre to Imagine Dragons-wrote, "What Kim Kardashian has done is used her connection with Trump to free a family member and score some PR points".

The White House said she had been a model prisoner and worked hard to rehabilitate herself.

Alice Marie Johnson was convicted of drug conspiracy charges back in 1996.

She said Trump said he had investigated the case, speaking to several people, including Johnson's warden, and everyone had "a unanimous feeling of Alice, that she will live a great life", Kardashian said.

"I'm thankful for the media that has been covering this because they have magnified the plight of those serving these sentences for non-violent crimes".

"You never gave up on me", she continued.
