Kim Kardashian Reveals Who She First Called to Free Alice Marie Johnson

When she said that I went into full-fledged Pentecostal holy dance.

In recent weeks, Kardashian West attended an Oval Office meeting with Trump to discuss the case, and then, just last week, he signed Johnson's clemency papers, a decision that resulted from the culmination of months of behind-the-scenes legal work. Despite the advocacy success, she said she has no plans to go into politics.

Speaking to Hoda Kotb about the moment Kim told her she was free, Alice said: 'I thought it was an attorney call, when my case manager was waiting on me, and it was.

Kardashian West and Johnson met in Mississippi Wednesday, one week after the 63-year-old was released from a federal prison, where she had served more than 21 years for nonviolent charges related to drug possession and money laundering.

She told him, "I am here because I really want to know why you kicked Khloé off "The Apprentice"... and he laughed and it broke the ice".

"It was so touching, it was all I could do to fight back the tears because when they hugged, embraced each other, it was so genuine".

Kardashian West first became aware of Johnson's story after an October Mic Opinion video where Johnson shared her story from prison.

Johnson, who was jailed in 1996 for drug trafficking, has said she turned her life around in the slammer and decided that she wasn't "going to just do time or let time do me".

Alice said merely offering thanks wasn't "big enough" to show her gratitude toward Kim, saying, "I have to walk it out..."

Kim said the news was met with screams and that they both "cried on the phone". "I did not know her name". As soon as I found out who she was, I started getting every magazine I could find.

"No, I'm still doing me", she said. "And I was amazed, too".

"I love Snapchat so much", Johnson said. "You can have an affect over them and for the greater good of other people". "Do you think you can change his mind?" This is all part of what God had planned for me, if only I could've seen it. "This, like, fulfilled my heart, and so since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that?"

The KKW Beauty CEO first learned about Johnson's story in 2017 and declared it "unfair" in a tweet, she then chose to work on getting Johnson justice.
