President Donald Trump has reportedly granted commutation to Alice Marie Johnson - a woman who was serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug charge - on Wednesday (June 6).

He added that the White House occupant should also make more sound decisions affecting the victims of the prison industrial complex and his Republican legislator buddies who are "using tax payer money to lock up innocent diseased people".

She said she would be an active force in the Trump administration's efforts at prison reform, led by son-in-law and White House adviser Jared Kushner.

Johnson was indicted in 1994 for being part of a Memphis trafficking operation, along with over a dozen others.

In statements made after the White House announcement, Kardashian voiced her appreciation for the move, and said she was the one to deliver the news to Johnson.

The White House released a statement praising Johnson for "accepting responsibility for her past behavior" and being a "model prisoner".

"I feel like my life is starting over again", an emotional Johnson told reporters outside the prison in Aliceville. "Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget", she tweeted, calling it the "BEST NEWS EVER!" and sharing that she wants to keep fighting the fight.

Music video director Joseph Kahn took to Twitter on Wednesday to blast Kim Kardashian for kissing Donald Trump's ass to pardon Alice Marie Johnson in order to land some good publicity.

Indeed, the wife of former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his Russian Federation contacts, appeared on Fox News this week to lobby her husband's case. 'No matter what, you never let anyone else dictate your life!

Alice Johnson is freed from prison after 22 years; she and her lawyer react on "The Story" after President Trump commutes her sentence.

Alice Johnson, 63, said Mr Trump had given her another chance in life and restored her to her family. Her commutation is inspirational & gives hope to so many others who are deserving of a second chance.

Ivanka Trump was one of the first people she called to plead Johnson's case, Kardashian said.

"I'm thankful for the media that has been covering this because they have magnified the plight of those serving these sentences for non-violent crimes".

Johnson had served 21 years of a life sentence for conspiracy to possess cocaine. "He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively".

Johnson's warden, case manager and vocational training instructor each wrote letters in support of her clemency.

Johnson's sister Coria Williams told Mic that she's "hoping that this is not a dream" and that "prayer does work".
