Kim Kardashian Blasted By Director For Freeing Alice Johnson; It's "PR Points"

Kim Kardashian Blasted By Director For Freeing Alice Johnson; It's

In a tweet final week, the president stated he and Kardashian West talked about "jail reform and sentencing" throughout their current go to within the Oval Workplace of the White Home.

Boxer Jack Johnson was posthumously pardoned by Trump last month, after a lobbying effort by Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone.

"Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget". "I'll do whatever it takes to get her out".

Brittany Barnett, a member of Johnson's legal team, said Johnson learned of her commutation on a call with Kardashian and her lawyers.

"We cried, maybe, on the phone for like three minutes straight", an emotional Kardashian told CNN's Van Jones, recounting her advocacy for Johnson, and her role in President Trump's decision to grant Johnson clemency on Wednesday. "We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her - will get a second chance at life". Kardashian campaigned on the behalf of Alice Marie Johnson.

There is a Justice Department review process, but presidents are not bound to follow it and Trump has not adhered to department guidelines in many of these cases.

Johnson admitted that she didn't know much about Kardashian before the starlet became involved in her case.

Kim Kardashian asked and President Trump answered. Kardashian West tweeted her gratitude, thanking both the president and Jared Kushner for showing compassion and dedicating their time to doing the right thing by Ms. Johnson.

And, after her meeting with Trump last week, the 62-year-old grandmother was released.

Kardashian West told Mic that Trump "really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice".

But immediately after her release, Johnson was savoring her freedom and all the perks that came with it.

During the interview, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star admitted that being in the White House was downright awe-inspiring. "Once Alice's family joined the call, the tears never stopped flowing". Have a say in our informal poll, and feel free to elaborate in the comments section. "Despite receiving a life sentence, Alice worked hard to rehabilitate herself in prison, and act as a mentor to her fellow inmates", the White House said in a statement announcing the commutation on Wednesday afternoon.

Johnson had served 21 years of a life sentence for conspiracy to possess cocaine.
