'Best news ever!' Kim Kardashian's trip to the White House pays off

"Alice has more than paid her debt to society by serving over 21 years of a life-without-parole sentence as a nonviolent drug offender".

"She gets another chance and I just really feel that this is not the last we'll hear of Alice Johnson".

Johnson spent 22 years in prison, a third of her life, and said that it was her faith and her optimism that allowed her to carry on.

She had already put forward her request for a pardon on two other occasions. She's never had any infractions... and she became an ordained minister. In a piece she penned for CNN's website, she wrote, "Before my incarceration, I had a full life..."

Following their encounter, Trump tweeted, "Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing", while Kardashian shared that she felt "optimistic" about the situation. Kim Kardashian West took up Johnson's cause after watching a viral Mic video explaining the case. "I'm hanging in here and won't let go until I walk out of these doors!" "It was a flawless ending".

She was released hours after the White House announcement.

"Oh my goodness, I [felt] like my feet had wings on them", she said. "I wanted to jump into their arms!"

'Kaala' records lowest ever opening for Rajinikanth film
The Chamber stated that Rajinikanth's statement on the Cauvery issue reportedly hurt the sentiments of Kannadigas. Don't be surprised if you find Aamir Khan sitting next to you in one of the theatres.

Trump has commuted the sentence of Alice Johnson.

"Its an wonderful feeling".

"I'm focused and I could separate my feelings about certain policies". "I believe that when you touch the heart of a people that it makes a difference". "I'm not bitter about it". How did Kim Kardashian get involved? Kim was the one to tell Alice that she was being released. When I just popped up on her phone, she said it was a moment where she knew that this is a moment. "She's really a nice person".

Opposition Democrats say Trump's pardons - or hints to issue clemency - of political allies is meant to signal his present and former aides that they need not fear resisting the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into possible collusion between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 election campaign.

Some supporters of President Trump have concluded that his decision to pardon Alice Johnson is rooted in a larger concern about how the criminal justice system affects people of color. "Please remember the others who have been left behind who need to have an opportunity that I've had". At the time, Johnson was seven months pregnant, according to her daughter, Catina Scales. "Like, you know, Kanye obviously knew what I was doing and knew I was working on it ahead of time, but, so that yeah when I hear that, and I've heard that, I don't let it phase me".

Do you think more celebrities should involve themselves in politics? "This is not the end for me".
