Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick gets his sentence commuted with the help of Diamond &Silk, who call themselves warriors for Trump
Here is a letter Kilpatrick, who is a Democrat, wrote to Trump in 2019.
“I first want to congratulate you for the overwhelming and stunning victories of your Presidential campaign, and also the unprecedented success of your first two years in office,” he wrote, according to Deadline Detroit.
Needless to say, his early release, courtesy of DJT, is getting a lot of attention because of the fact that “prominent members of the Detroit community,” Diamond & Silk convinced Trump to do so:
“President Trump commuted the sentence of the former Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Malik Kilpatrick. This commutation is strongly supported by prominent members of the Detroit community, Alveda King, Alice Johnson, Diamond and Silk, Pastor Paula White, Peter Karmanos, Representative Sherry Gay-Dagnogo of the Michigan House of Representatives, Representative Karen Whitsett of the Michigan House of Representatives, and more than 30 faith leaders. Mr. Kilpatrick has served approximately 7 years in prison for his role in a racketeering and bribery scheme while he held public office. During his incarceration, Mr. Kilpatrick has taught public speaking classes and has led Bible Study groups with his fellow inmates.”
