As for the future of Alice, she plans on helping those just like her. "I hope maybe this inspires more people to talk to the people in power that you can have an affect over them for the greater good of other people".
The meeting marked the first time the two had met in person since Kardashian West broke the news of Johnson's commutation to her via a telephone call to the prison.
A brief sneak-peek clip from the interview reveals there's a lot of affection between Kardashian and the 63-year-old grandmother, who had been imprisoned since 1996 after receiving a life sentence for cocaine trafficking despite being a non-violent offender with no prior arrests.
"To me this has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with people", she said. I started screaming and jumping.
In recent weeks, Kardashian West attended an Oval Office meeting with Trump to discuss the case, and then, just last week, he signed Johnson's clemency papers, a decision that resulted from the culmination of months of behind-the-scenes legal work.
"I love this lady", Johnson said as she hugged Kardashian West at Johnson's sister's home in Memphis. Are you ready to go home?' When she said that, I went into full fledge Pentecostal holy dance! "She was kind of quiet on the phone, and I know her personality enough to know that she would've been screaming or something".
She was serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for a first-time drug offense.
'And I said, "wait, you don't know?" and she said, "know what?" and I was like, "you are going home".
When asked about what's next for the both of them, Johnson and Kardashian West both expressed their intention of working to help more people trapped in the criminal justice system.
The president says he is considering a long list of other clemency actions, including for former IL governor Rod Blagojevich, who is serving 14 years in prison for corruption, and celebrity homemaker Martha Stewart, who served about five months for insider financial trading. I started reading everything that I could about her, and everyone was amazed. "I think I have to walk it out".
