TRUMP-KIM SUMMIT

Kim Kardashian: Trump ‘Really Understood’ My Clemency Plea

After their Wednesday meeting, Kim Kardashian said that she felt President Donald Trump “spent the time to listen” to her clemency plea for Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother who’s serving time in prison for a nonviolent drug offense. “I went in… to really talk to the president about Alice Johnson and really explain to him why she would be such a good person to grant clemency to,” she told Mic. “The president seems to have a passion for what everything that Jared [Kushner] has been trying to do, and that just makes me happy that that conversation is just moving forward.” She continued, saying that the president “really understood, and [she is] very hopeful that this will turn out really positively.” Kardashian had previously been in talks with Kushner, senior adviser to Trump, about getting Johnson out of prison. Johnson was sentenced to life in jail without parole in 1996 for “facilitating communications in a cocaine trafficking operation,” Mic reports. “I don’t have a personal experience with prison myself, but I believe in family, and her family was torn apart by choices that she made 21 and a half years ago,” Kardashian said.
