"Today, President Donald J. Trump granted a commutation to Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old grandmother who has served nearly 22 years in Federal prison for a first-time criminal offence", the statement read.

Trump "really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice", Kardashain West told Mic after her meeting, which took place the same day as Johnson's birthday.

She says that once Johnson's family joined the call, "the tears never stopped flowing".

Like most Americans, I'm sure the president thinks that prisons are full of bad people who did bad things, and that society must be protected from them.

Trump has pardoned former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a staunch campaign supporter; Scooter Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide; and a U.S. Navy sailor convicted of taking photos of classified portions of a submarine who complained that Hillary Clinton was not also prosecuted for violating security laws with her personal email server. Johnson was convicted in 1996 for her involvement in a multimillion-dollar cocaine ring.

Do you think more celebrities should involve themselves in politics? Although she didn't engage in any violent activity, she was given a mandatory life sentence plus 25 years, according to ABC News. Prosecutors opposed a pending reduction in her sentence, citing federal guidelines based on the large quantity of drugs involved. Let us know in the comments.

"Ms Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behaviour and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades", the statement reads. The reasons are unclear.

Unfortunately, unless you have been through it, you may never understand that our criminal justice system is flawed in ways that are destroying America. She said, " I lost my job - and - then my youngest son was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident... "I have to get credit to where Alice's whole team had been working on this for years. More time in prison can not accomplish more justice".

Indeed, the wife of former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his Russian Federation contacts, appeared on Fox News this week to lobby her husband's case.

Responding to the decision, the reality star tweeted: "BEST NEWS EVER".

Why Kardashian advocated for Alice Johnson during her visit with President Trump and what you need to know about prison reform.

Holley says in a statement that she, "just got off the most wonderful, emotional and fantastic phone call with Alice, Kim and Alice's lawyers".

Kardashian-West took to Twitter to thank the president.

The phone call I just had with Alice will forever be one of my best memories. "And so, I just felt this connection to her, just instantly, I wanted to help her".

Kim Kardashian asked and President Trump answered.

'Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are also deserving of a second chance.
