She was accompanied by her famed attorney, Shawn Holley, as they entered President Trump’s home.
“Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson. Today is for you,” Kardashian Tweeted on Wednesday before going to the White House.
“I’ve been in communication with the White House and trying to bring her case to the president’s desk and figure out how we can get her out,” Kardashian told Mic in an interview. “That’s such a huge step from where we started with that not even being on their radar.”
Johnson was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole after being convicted of drug conspiracy and money laundering. She was divorced, lost her job due to a gambling addiction, lost her house, filed for bankruptcy and her son was killed. She then began working with drug dealers and was arrested, tried and found guilty.
“If you think about a decision that you’ve made in your life and you get life without the possibility of parole for your first-time nonviolent offense, there’s just something so wrong with that,” Kardashian said about the sentence.
“Where I’m at in my life right now, just like, to go and spend my money buying material things just doesn’t satisfy me the way that it used to,” Kardashian said about her decision to help Johnson. “To save someone’s life and do that once a year, then that would make my heart fuller.”
