Kim Kardashian To Meet With Alice Marie Johnson Face To Face

Minutes after her GMA appearance Trump tweeted, "Good luck to Alice Johnson".

Kardashian West visited the White House in May to advocate for Johnson.

Trump has commuted Ms. Johnson's sentence.

"She was speechless. She was in tears".

Johnson's daughter Catina Scales spoke with Business Insider earlier on Wednesday, as she was en route to pick her mother up from the Aliceville correctional facility in Alabama.

"Because you now have a president who effectively thinks he can do things by pardons", he explained.

Stewart and Blagojevich both have ties to Trump's former "Apprentice" TV shows, but the White House has denied that Trump is only considering pardons for well-known figures.

Trump issued a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, the first black heavyweight boxing champion, who was sent to prison a century ago in a racially charged case.

Kim got a phone call earlier this week from Trump, who told her he reviewed the case and made a decision to commute Alice's sentence.

She said: "Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget".

Ivanka Trump was one of the first people she called to plead Johnson's case, Kardashian said.

"I just knew him from "The Apprentice" and other things and he was amusing to me", Johnson said.

"To have the President of The United States feel that I deserve a second chance makes me feel so grateful to him". She felt as if her life was starting over again. She was convicted in 1996 on eight counts related to a cocaine trafficking ring in Memphis.

The 1994 indictment described dozens of deliveries and drug transactions, many involving Johnson. Prosecutors opposed a pending reduction in her sentence, citing federal guidelines based on the large quantity of drugs involved. "He was compassionate", Kim said of Trump. She then delivered the news herself that Johnson's life plus 25-year sentence was being commuted.

Kim Kardashian-West hired a team of attorneys and brought her case to the president's attention.

She explained it showcased Trump's "attachment to celebrity".
