Alice Marie Johnson calls for Trump to pardon nonviolent drug offenders, praises ‘unsung hero’ Ivanka

Alice
Marie
Johnson,
the
Tennessee
grandmother
whose
life
sentence
on
a
federal
drug
charge
was
commuted
by

President
Trump,
told
Fox
News
Tuesday
that
the
outgoing
president
should
pardon
more
“nonviolent
drug
offenders” before

Joe
Biden
is
sworn
in
Wednesday.

With
the
president
expected
to
release
a
list
of
clemency
recipients
before
the
end
of
Tuesday,
Johnson
told
“The
Story”
that
she
had
been
lobbying
for
clemency
for
“offenders
that
have
been
serving
draconian
sentences.”

“I
believe
I
made
some
very
good headway,”
Johnson
told
host
Martha
MacCallum.
“There’s
others
that
I
have
been asking
for
that
have
had
their
sentences
way
too
long.”

She
went
on
to
praise
Trump
son-in-law
and
senior
adviser
Jared
Kushner
and
first
daughter
Ivanka
Trump
for
their
efforts
in
helping
to give
former
inmates
a
“second
chance.”

PLEADS
WITH
TRUMP
TO
PARDON
‘FREE
SPEECH
HERO’
JULIAN
ASSANGE

Johnson
told
MacCallum
she
submitted
a
list
of
close
to
100
convicts
that
Trump
should
consider
for
clemency,
while
cautioning
it
was
unlikely
all
of
them
will
be
reprieved.

“I’ve
been
in
close
contact
with Jared

he’s
worked
hard
on this
[but]
the
unsung
hero
is
Ivanka,”
she
said. “She
rolled
her
sleeves
up
and jumped
into
the
process
of clemencies
and
pardons
like
you wouldn’t
believe. She’s
worked
through
the
weekend nonstop.

“She’s
really
stepped
in
and
just raised
the
bar
of
being
a hard-working
person
that
wants to
make
sure
that
as
many receive
their
freedom
today
as possible.”

Trump
has
already
granted
pardons to
his
2016
campaign
chairman
Paul
Manafort
Jr.,
as
well
as Republican
political
consultant
Roger
J.
Stone
and
Jared
Kushner’s
father,
Charles.
