That Kardashian-Trump Meeting Ended Up With Him Commuting A Life Sentence

Kim Kardashian West and President Donald Trump

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian visited the White House May 30 to discuss Johnson's sentence and the possibility of a pardon or commuted sentence.

The White House says in a statement that Johnson "has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades", working to rehabilitate herself and acting as a mentor to fellow inmates.

Johnson was incarcerated at the Federal Correctional Institution in Aliceville, Alabama, for 21 years. She went on to say that her heart "is so full of gratitude for the attractive inside and out Kim Khardashian West who chose to advocate for and essentially save the life of my mother, someone she had never heard of or met!"

The great-grandmother and her many loved ones - including her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren - gathered around a table at The Hub in Memphis, Tenn., for a family dinner 25 years in the making.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted a message to Johnson wishing her well. "This moment right now is happening because President Trump had mercy on me".

Kardashian, 37, has said that breaking the news of her release to Johnson by phone "while crying together is a moment I will never forget". "It was the most exhilarating feeling I've ever had, Michael. We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she-and so many like her-will get a second chance at life". "I plan on continuing to work hard to use my case as an example for prison reform and sentencing reform to make a difference", she said.

She was convicted on charges of attempted possession of drugs and money-laundering in Tennessee.

Also, Kim Kardashian West will be meeting the lady she helped to free from prison.

The president commuted Ms Johnson's sentence as his seventh act of clemency.

On her first full day of freedom, she gave thanks for her second chance, and the man who granted it.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I think Kim Kardashian would take my cause on", Johnson said.

Johnson said that it's finally "starting to set in that I'm truly free".
