From there, Kushner explained that when he learned about non-violent criminals, he was drawn to help.
“She became an ordained minister, earned multiple professional certifications, mentored fellow inmates, and maintained an immaculate conduct record,” he wrote.
“With the president’s growing support for criminal justice reform, we decided this was the perfect time to bring Johnson’s pardon case to the president.” After working together and reviewing the files, I presented Alice’s case to the President.
But the voyage from there wasn’t smooth sailing, as investors continued to share concerns with White House adviser Don McGahn.

Fortunately for Alice, the then president was interested in learning more anyway. “She graciously submitted Alice’s case to the president. She knew the details before and after,” he said of the reality TV personality.
Then I remembered when my father-in-law, Trump, made the decision.
“Two days later he called me early in the morning and said, ‘Let’s have forgiveness. Let’s make sure Alice doesn’t go out and kill anyone!’ Jared explained.
Despite McGahn allegedly planting the falsehood in the press that the president was influenced by Kim’s pop culture prominence, Trump proceeded to grant the pardon.
Ahead: Following the leniency, Kim spoke passionately about criminal justice reform at the White House in June 2019.
After moving out, the New Jersey native wrote about Alice:
“Then the president called me and said, ‘Jared, it’s one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. I’ve been there a long time and it was beautiful.’”
Trump then pardoned Alice in August 2020, a day after Alice spoke at the 2020 Republican National Convention.

In other public excerpts from the book, Kushner also revealed that he was treated for thyroid cancer while on duty at the White House.
He wrote that he recalled a conversation he had with White House physician Sean Conley on a trip to Texas in October 2019.
“The morning I traveled to Texas to attend the Louis Vuitton factory opening, White House physician Sean Conley took me to the Air Force One medical cabin,” Kushner wrote. “Your test results are back from Walter Reed. It looks like you have cancer. Surgery should be scheduled soon.”
