According to Page Six, Ray J was responsible for bringing Kodak to the dinner as his guest.
“It was the right thing to do,” said Ray J, who has been exploring business initiatives with Trump. “Trump pardoned him.”
During the dinner, which was attended by Senator Lindsey Graham and Rudy Giuliani, Kodak was also honored for his charitable efforts by former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik.
“When a cop is killed in the line of duty, this kid puts up money for his family’s kids to go to college,” Kerik said. “That’s one of the reasons I supported his clemency. He still does it today. He is a prime example of why presidents should exert their power of clemency. There’s no better example.”
