“I think that he really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice Johnson,” Kim told Mic exclusively, referring to the 63-year-old grandmother who has spent 21 years in prison for a first-time drug-trafficking charge. Kim is hoping the president will grant clemency to Alice.
“He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively,” Kim shared after meeting with Donald, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and her lawyer Shawn Chapman Holley.
“I went in, me and Shawn, to really talk to the president about Alice Johnson and really explain to him why she would be such a good person to grant clemency to,” Kim explained.
“The president seems to have a passion for what everything that Jared has been trying to do, and that just makes me happy that that conversation is just moving forward,” Kim told the site, adding that she believes Alice has “completely rehabilitated herself and will continue to do so out of prison.”
