She announced the visit on Twitter Wednesday morning saying the visit would not only bring "light to these women" but open discussion for "more change that our justice system desperately needs!"
Following the visit, Johnson said the women shared their stories and advocated for those who "deserve a second chance."
The three ex-prisoners Trump met were recommended to him as candidates for clemency by Johnson, who has herself gone on to become an advocate for criminal justice reform since her own commutation and has become the administration's de facto poster child on the criminal justice reform. Johnson received a standing ovation at the president's 2019 State of the Union Address and was the star of his reelection campaign Super Bowl ad last month.
The meeting also came about at her request after seeing the president at a recent White House event related to Black History Month, a person familiar with the matter said.
Johnson thanked the president for granting the requested commutations at that time and asked him if she could bring the three women back to the White House with her for an in-person visit.
The three ex-prisoners who met with the president for the first time today are Tynice Hall, Judith Negron and Crystal Munoz.
Ahead of Wednesday's meeting, West also posted a series of tweets about the women to bring attention to their cases:
White House officials have not released further details of the meeting.
