    Trump grants full pardon to criminal justice reform advocate Alice Marie Johnson

    President Trump granted a full pardon to criminal justice reform advocate Alice Marie Johnson more than two years after he commuted her life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense. "We’re going to give a full pardon. We are going to do it right now," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Friday. He signed the pardon at 2:12 p.m., which he said changed his action from a commutation to a full pardon.

    Trump commended Johnson for the work she has done since leaving prison. He called her original sentence "horrible" and said he was proud of her for her continued efforts on criminal justice reform. He said the pardon would allow Johnson to do "whatever you want in life and just keep doing the great job you are doing."

    "Alice was given a life sentence, and you spent about 22 years and for something that today a lot of people would not even be going to jail for, and it was horrible," Trump said. "We found out about it, and we gave you a commutation. That means we were able to get Alice out, and she’s been so outstanding. and I am so proud of you."
