Kim Kardashian West Attends White House Meeting to Discuss Prison Reform

On Wednesday afternoon Kim Kardashian West attended a meeting at the White House, where she reportedly discussed the topic of prison reform and the possible clemency for a great-grandmother who is serving a drug-related life prison sentence, Fox News informed.

The reality TV star was reportedly slated to meet with Jared Kushner, White House senior adviser and son-in-law to the President, in her efforts to gain a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, 63.  President Trump later tweeted a photo of the pair in the Oval Office; however, he did not say whether they discussed Johnson specifically.

“Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing,” Trump wrote.

Kardashian West also tweeted following her visit to the White House, thanking Trump for making efforts and taking the time out to meet with her.

“I would like to thank President Trump for his time this afternoon. It is our hope that the President will grant clemency to Ms. Alice Marie Johnson who is serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense,” the star wrote in the tweet.

“We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson’s future and hopeful that she – and so many like her – will get a second chance at life.”

Johnson is currently serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole after she was convicted of a first-time nonviolent drug offense, according to Mic. Kardashian West was first drawn to the woman’s story after seeing a video profile on Johnson produced by the outlet in 2017.
