Kardashian West spoke about prison reform with President Trump during a White House meeting which ended with a widely-publicized Oval Office photo of the two.
Johnson was aware Kardashian West and other supporters had taken up her cause and for that she is beyond grateful.
Opposition Democrats say Trump's pardons of political allies - or hints to issue them - is meant to signal to 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.
In an apparent effort to lobby her husband's case, 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 to talk about how committed he'd been to Trump's campaign.
Last week, Trump pardoned firebrand conservative commentator Dinesh D'Souza, who was convicted of violating campaign finance laws. Relatives were there to greet her as she experienced freedom for the first time since the 1990s.
The 63-year-old Alice Marie Johnson has served more than two decades in federal prison for drug offenses.
G7 photograph memifies Trump diplomacy
Reneging on the commitments agreed in the communique showed "incoherence and inconsistency", it said in a statement. Trump called Trudeau " meek and mild " and " dishonest and weak " in a tweet for his stance on tariffs.
"Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget".
Johnson's plea for clemency was denied by President Barack Obama in just weeks before he left office in 2017, despite an initiative aimed at freeing drug offenders serving long mandatory minimum sentences.
She has said that prison guards wrote letters on her behalf and that she has perfectly clean behavior, spending her free time writing plays.
Kardashian West has expanded her reach in ways some might have thought unlikely. "We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she-and so many like her-will get a second chance at life". "She has used her celebrity status to lift up a specific case of injustice and give Alice the spotlight her case deserves".
"I hope that they will start searching for more Alice Johnson's and find the people who are serving way more time then they need to", said Upton.
When Kardashian West learned of her case, she met with Jared Kushner and the president to push for her pardon. The 1994 indictment describes dozens of deliveries and drug transactions, many involving Johnson. Prosecutors opposed a pending reduction in her sentence, citing federal guidelines based on the large quantity of drugs involved.
Kardashian West expressed gratitude to Trump, his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and others.
