Sentence commuted for Kardashian-backed inmate
The mother of three claims she worked with Johnson's team over the course of several months, making daily phone calls to the White House in attempt to land a meeting with President Donald Trump. She had already served nearly 22 years.
"I want you to brace yourself, because here's a sentence I don't often say:Donald Trump did something good", Colbert said. "That I am going to be that one that is going to make you so proud and I hope that my life will encourage him to do this for others, too", Johnson said in an interview on CBS This Morning Thursday.
Johnson was sentenced in 1996 to life without parole, plus 25 years, for her role in a drug trafficking conspiracy.
"When I initially called Ivanka [Trump], I said I would love a meeting with your dad". Thank you. You have literally saved my life. "I'm free to hug my family", she said. Kardashian West was drawn to her case after seeing a video about it on the news outlet Mic.com.
Unlike a pardon, a commutation does not expunge a criminal conviction.
Do you think more celebrities should involve themselves in politics? Trump also has been drawn to cases in which he believes prosecutors may have been motivated by politics - situations that may remind him of his own predicament at the center of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling. And he granted a posthumous pardon to boxing's first black heavyweight champion, which had been championed by actor Sylvester Stallone.

Democrats and Trump critics have warned that the president might be sending a message to his former aides and associates caught up in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation or the probe of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen by the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office.
"I had 100% clear conduct for the entire time, my entire time in prison, no disciplinary infractions", she said.
Johnson was put on the president's radar during a meeting in the Oval Office last week with Kardashian West, who was originally slated to meet with Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform.
He said he heard the news through a family group text. "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.
