HIALEAH, Fla. - A Florida woman who got clemency from President Donald Trump in a $205 million Medicare fraud scam says her case was brought to Trump's attention by a woman whose own clemency came at the urging of reality TV star Kim Kardashian West.

Judith Negron was eight years into a 35-year-sentence.

She's among 11 inmates who received clemency from Trump.

She calls former prisoner Alice Johnson her “guardian angel.”

Johnson was serving life without parole for drug offenses when Trump granted clemency in 2018.

Trump has worked outside the traditional pardon process, appearing to favor cases that catch his attention.

Some have been championed by friends and celebrities.
