President Trump has signed a pardon for Alice Johnson, currently serving a life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense, reports Axios.
The pardon follows a visit to the White House by Kim Kardashian who championed the pardon of Johnson.
Trump may become known as the Communication and Pardon President---not a bad thing. There are other pardons and commutations he is apparently considering.
The White House has prepared the paperwork to pardon at least 30 more people.
Clarification: the official term for what Trump signed is a commutation. Upshot is she leaves prison. https://t.co/THBFmJym85— Jonathan Swan (@jonathanvswan) June 6, 2018
