"Telling her for the first time and hearing her screams while crying together is a moment I will never forget", she said in the tweet.

The White House released an official statement earlier this week saying that Alice Johnson had "accepted responsibility for her past behaviour".

After first coming across Johnson's story last fall, Kardashian has aggressively spoken out about prison reform, going as far as to meet with Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner, also an advisor to the president, to discuss Johnson's case.

"I made one of the worst mistakes of my life to make some quick money", Johnson said. "I'm free to hug my family", she said.

I realize that a woman who didn't finish college and who married a man who titled his first album The College Dropout isn't an ideal choice to represent those of us who will be paying off student loans until we're dead.

"I think Kanye has already been giving him legitimacy, so I don't you know, in that way, so I don't think I would be used", Kardashian responded. On Wednesday night, Stephen Colbert even noted that Johnson's pardon didn't go through a formal legal process or review before her sentence was commuted.

On Wednesday, West got to deliver the news to Johnson that she would be freed.

Daily phone calls with the White House followed.

We asked her what she would say to people who think she should serve out the rest of her sentence. "When you see my face, you see so many other faces that I represent".

Khloé Kardashian also posted her message of support.

Arjun Tendulkar, Sachin Tendulkar's son, breaks into India Under-19 squad
Arjun, a left-arm seamer, was a part of the Mumbai Under-19 squad past year in the Cooch Behar Trophy where he scalped 18 wickets. He now has 29 wickets from five first-class matches and three scalps from as many one-day matches.


And Kardashian said she tried to use her platform to help those who had been working on the case.

Her efforts led to her meeting with Trump at the White House on May 30.

Despite the naysayers, Johnson is enjoying her freedom.

"I was very focused". Somehow a celebrity supporting something is unseemly, but say, lobbyists are just how it's done. "And he said that from the start..." "I mean, there's over 3,000 people in this same exact situation as Alice. And at that point, I had to make the decision that this was bigger than me", she said.

In a way, Edwards noted, the 37-year-old's move to action in Johnson's case could be seen as a natural follow up to troubles in her own life.

"When he said he has the papers in front of him and he's signing it.my heart was so full", Kardashian said.

While behind bars, Johnson was a model prisoner with a 100 percent clear conduct record.

Alice Johnson was arrested in 1993 for taking part in a cocaine distribution ring.

"He said, 'You know, this is a really long time that she's been in here, right?"

President Barack Obama did not intervene in Johnson's case during his eight years in office because the Justice Department recommended denying Johnson's request for commutation.
