Kardashian West told NBC's "Today" that she was heartened by Trump's decision to commute Alice Johnson's sentence.


Johnson, 63, had served 21 years of her life sentence for a nonviolent drug offense and money laundering charges.

"This is like, 'OK, we did this,' " Kardashian West said. "Let's open up this conversation."

She told NBC she's forwarded other potential cases to the White House.

“I enjoy this. This has, like, fulfilled my heart,” Kardashian West said. “So since I feel so fulfilled, why would I stop that.”

Kardashian West met with Trump at the White House to encourage him to grant clemency to Johnson.

Johnson and Kardashian West met for the first time in their "Today" interview. Johnson told the network that she intends to use her newfound freedom to shed light on cases similar to hers.

"There are so many others like me whose faces are not here, who are not sitting next to a war angel, who deserve clemency as much as I did and who deserve another chance in life," she said.

Trump has pardoned five people thus far, and is considering dozens more clemency cases, White House sources have said.
