Kim Kardashian to meet newly freed Alice as Cohen thinks Trump played celebrity status

Kim Kardashian West will come face-to-face with the woman she helped to free from prison.

Alice Marie Johnson had her life sentence commuted yesterday by President Trump after spending 22 years behind bars. Kim championed Alice's release with the help of her attorney, Shawn Holley ... communicating for months with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

Sources close to the situation say Kim and her team are working to arrange a meeting with Alice that could happen as early as this week.

She will most likely travel to Alice -- not vice versa -- as the great-grandmother adjusts to life outside of prison. Moments after she got out, Alice told reporters she was thankful and felt as if her life was starting over again.

But Kim isn’t even stopping with Alice, she is going forward to help other who have been unfairly sentenced.

Meanwhile, Steve Cohen is claiming that Donald Trump released Alice because of Kim's Celebrity status

TTrump Only Released Alice Because Of Kim’s Celebrity Status, Steve Cohen Says

Kim Kardashian did good fighting for Alice Johnson's clemency, but at least one U.S. congressman thinks President Trump played celeb favorites and that has no place in the prison reform discussion.

TMZ got Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee Wednesday on Capitol Hill, and he says there's a downside to Kim successfully lobbying Trump ... in the big picture.

Cohen's afraid it will set a bad precedent for other harshly or wrongly convicted prisoners.

In other words, what happens if you're rotting in prison and don't have a celebrity who can get the President's ear fighting for your freedom?

Cohen's working on legislation to help more people like Alice and while he seems to applaud Kim's efforts, he's not giving Trump an ounce of credit.
