Kardashian has been advocating for Johnson's release and even hired high-powered attorney to the stars Shawn Holley to help with the case.

Holley says in a statement that she, "just got off the most wonderful, emotional and fantastic phone call with Alice, Kim and Alice's lawyers". This was a road I never dreamed of venturing down. As soon as she stepped out of the van, she ran toward waiting family members who greeted her with hugs, flowers and tears.

In a statement on the commutation of her sentence, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Johnson "has been a model prisoner over the past two decades". While the administration "will always be very tough on crime", the White House "believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance".

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.

Attorney Brittany K. Barnett, another member of Johnson's legal team, thanked Trump in a statement that said: "Life in prison without the possibility of parole screams that a person is beyond hope, beyond redemption". "I'm a broken woman".

"They have used short memoranda or subtle changes in enforcement strategy to quietly undo much of President Barack Obama's criminal justice changes legacy".
