Kim Kardashian West Denies Being Trump’s Political Pawn After Alice Johnson Pardon

Trump May Pardon 63-Year-Old Woman After Meeting With Kim Kardashian Trump Commutes Sentence of Drug Offender Championed by Kardashian

Johnson, 63, was sentenced to life in prison on federal drug possession and money laundering charges after being convicted in Tennessee in 1996.

Kardashian, the wife of rapper Kanye West, met with Trump at the White House last week to appeal for the release of the great-grandmother convicted of cocaine trafficking.

On Thursday, Johnson expressed her gratitude for Kim K. and Trump acting on her behalf in an interview with Michael Strahan on Good Morning America.

Given this, what is more likely to have motivated Trump's decision on Johnson is his relationship with Kardashian West and her husband.

He went on to explain that while he's happy to see Johnson free, he doesn't expect to see real reform on USA prison policy while Trump is president. "We went from 11 to 22 in one week", Trump said May 4 at the National Rifle Association's annual conference in Texas, without identifying the source of the data. "I'll do whatever it takes to get her out". Probably. Did he take the meeting with Kardashian West simply because he wanted to see her undercarriage up close?

"It was unbelievable because she felt my mother's pain and change in her heart, and to come through and do that for my mom - forever, forever grateful", Scales said.

Kardashian West joined what has been a long-running campaign for Johnson's freedom, spearheaded by the clemency foundation CAN-DO, friends and family.

"While this Administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance", it said. Kardashian West was drawn to her case after seeing a video about it on the news outlet Mic.com.

In contrast to a pardon, Mr Trump's actions only ended rather than erased Ms Johnson's conviction.

Trump gave a posthumous pardon to boxer Jack Johnson last month after Sylvester Stallone advocated for Johnson.

Trump has commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson. In a piece she penned for CNN's website, she wrote, "Before my incarceration, I had a full life..." She said she never personally made drug deals or sold drugs but that she did relay messages and allowed others in the conspiracy to use her telephone.

Kardashian West also discussed criminal justice reform with Mr Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner.

She had applied for clemency during Barack Obama's 2014 push, but her application was denied.

Johnson had served more than 20 years in prison.

The White House said Johnson accepted responsibility and has been a model prisoner, serving as a mentor to inmates.
