After Alice Marie Johnson received the news of her commutation, Kim Kardashian, who advocated for her release from prison, has made a decision to travel to Memphis to meet with Johnson in person. "How about you just give this man credit for doing something good, for doing something humane, and stop making everything political?" People were listening! I'm telling ya, I was dancing, I was dancing, I was jumping, I was screaming.
Kardashian, who has been working on behalf of the grandma for months, was the first person to tell the nonviolent drug offender about her commutation back on June 6 but this will be the duo's first in person encounter.
Alice had already served more than 20 years in prison on drug conspiracy and money laundering charges. "I knew that she would have understood Alice, and she immediately was so receptive and so great". "I thought she knew because the news was starting to break and we had to get her on the phone", the reality star explained. "I can't stop", she said.
Trump commuted her sentence last week, just days after meeting with Kardashian West in the Oval Office.
"We had a really great conversation about women and wanting to help each other, and I knew that she would've understood Alice", Kardashian West said.
"I plan on continuing to magnify this issue". My life is completely intertwined forever with those who were left behind.
A week later, Johnson was free, though it took a call from Kardashian to learn the life-changing news. There might've been people around, [saying] like, 'Are you sure you should go to the White House? "And everyone was amazed and I was amazed too". "I didn't know Kim", she admitted. Are you ready to go home?' When she said that, I went into full-fledged Pentecostal holy dance!
"Everyone was saying that "if you don't get [clemency during the Obama presidency], it's not going to happen", Johnson said".
Before her release was announced, Johnson wrote an essay for CNN that expresses her faith and her gratitude for the help she received: "Some refer to prison as a place where hope dies".
The clemency came after Kim hired a team of attorneys to investigate Alice's case after coming across it on Twitter.
