Kim Kardashian West the star is now also the reformer

Kim Kardashian West the star is now also the reformer

Johnson, who had been serving a mandatory life sentence plus 25 years for a nonviolent drug offense, also had a plea for the president to review more cases like hers.

Kim Kardashian, who personally broke the news of the commuted sentence to Johnson on the phone, was glad things turned out this way.

Now free, Kim is planning on meeting with Alice Marie Johnson face to face after she was initially moved by her story via Twitter. "Kim was the one to tell Alice that she was being released".

She also wrote, "So grateful to @realDonaldTrump, Jared Kushner & to everyone who has showed compassion & contributed countless hours to this important moment for Ms. Alice Marie Johnson".

I feel like my life is starting over again.

Since her release, she's had a chance to reconnect with her family after more than two decades behind bars, which she calls "the most exhilarating feeling".

Microsoft has acquired GitHub
Many corporations, including Microsoft and Alphabet Inc.'s Google , use GitHub to store their corporate code and to collaborate. Despite all those users, Github was not making money, and it probably wasn't long for the world as a independent company.

The president commuted her sentence, a move the Justice Department had resisted under President Obama.

Last month, the president posthumously pardoned the boxer Jack Johnson after the actor Sylvester Stallone raised his case with him. She was convicted of drug conspiracy and money laundering charges in 1996.

Johnson was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, and appellate courts and the U.S. Supreme Court had denied her appeals.

"If you've noticed, I keep touching her because it's hard to believe she's actually here", said Catina Scales, Johnson's daughter.

Kim Kardashian West met with Trump last week. Trump previously issued clemency to former sheriff Joe Arpaio, Scooter Libby, Navy sailor Kristian Saucier, boxing champion Jack Johnson, and right-wing pundit Dinesh D'Souza. "When they all came on, then I heard Kim Kardashian's voice and she was the one that told me it had happened, that I was free, that I was going to rejoin my family", Johnson told reporters outside the prison in Pickens County, Alabama. "I did take a second to say like wait a minute, we're in the oval office". "Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are deserving of a second chance", she said in the tweet.

Cameras captured Johnson's reunion with family members Wednesday night after a van transported her outside the prison.
