Kim Kardashian and John Kelly are reportedly facing off over whether Trump should pardon a woman serving life in prison for drug possession

Published

President Donald Trump has become “obsessive” over pardons, and is considering pardoning a woman serving life in prison after meeting with reality TV star Kim Kardashian, reported the Washington Post.

Alice Marie Johnson, 63, is serving life in prison over a low-level, nonviolent drug possession and money laundering charges.

Jared Kushner arranged for a meeting between Kardashian, and President Trump to discuss pardoning Johnson last week.

Republican consultant Ed Rollins, said President Trump’s newly found knowledge of pardons is all a part of the show.

“It’s all part of the show,” Rollins said. “It’s not a rational or traditional process, but about the celebrity or who they know, or who he sees on Fox & Friends. He’s sending the message, ‘I can do whatever I want, and I could certainly pardon someone down the line on the Russia probe.”

However, White House chief of staff, John Kelly strongly opposes this move. Kelly has reviewed Johnson’s case and is not convinced she deserves a pardon.

According to White House aides that the Post interviewed, President Trump asked his friends for a list of people they think should be pardoned. A White House spokesperson declined to discuss the specifics of President Trump’s pardon decisions.

MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow roasted One America News Network (OANN) for employing a Kremlin operative to report on United States politics.

"If the Fox News channel is insufficiently pro-Trump for you, you may or may not know there is another boutique little news outlet that is designed specifically for Trump megafans called One America, One America News Network," she explained.

"The Trump White House gave this boutique outfit a hard pass for access to the White House grounds and a permanent seat in the White House briefing room -- remember when the White House used to hold press briefings? They had a seat," she continued.
