Kim Kardashian West’s meeting with Donald Trump was NOT a waste of time.
45 has officially granted Alice Marie Johnson clemency.
Our sources tell us the Prez signed off on Wednesday, and Alice will soon be released from the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama. We’re told she’s heading straight home to be with her family.
As we reported … KKW met with Trump last week at the White House to talk prison reform and about Alice’s case. She and her attorney, Shawn Holley, were working with Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner for several months on Johnson’s case.
The 62-year-old grandma’s case became national news last year when Kim tweeted about it — she was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 1997 on money laundering and drug conspiracy charges … her first offenses.
Many expected Johnson to be released in December 2016 when Obama granted clemency to many similar nonviolent offenders … but Alice was passed up. Not long after, Kim K started pushing hard to make it happen … and Alice wrote her a heartfelt thank-you note.
This is excellent news.
BEST NEWS EVER!!!! ?????? https://t.co/JUbpbE1Bk0
