Kim Kardashian West will reportedly meet with President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday as part of the reality star’s ongoing efforts to win a pardon for a 62-year-old great-grandmother who is serving a life prison sentence.

Kardashian West, along with her lawyer, will be the first meeting with the White House senior adviser Jared Kushner – whose own father for more than a year in prison for tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions and witness tampering – for the three to sit with the president, Vanity Fair reported, quoting sources.

Alice Johnson is serving a life sentence without parole for the first time non-violent drug offense, according to the Mic, which has a video profile of the woman in 2017 in the first instance, brought Kardashian West’s attention to the matter.

“If you think about a decision you’ve made in your life and your life without the possibility of parole for the first time non-violent offense, there’s just something so wrong with that,” Kardashian West told the outlet.

Kardashian West has reportedly been working for months to grant Johnson a presidential pardon, and is in communication with Kushner and other members of the thr Trump administration, according to the outlet.

The scheduled meeting between Kardashian and Trump comes on the heels of two major criminal law developments in the White House.

Last week, Trump granted a posthumous pardon to Jack Johnson, boxing’s first black heavyweight champion, the following resources of actor Sylvester Stallone and Johnson’s great niece.

Kushner won his first major legal victory after the House approved the First Step Law a prison reform bill that would allow more inmates to serve out their sentences in halfway houses and provided resources in support of programs aimed at keeping the inmates of the prison, as well as encouraging good behaviour.

Unfortunately, the fans of the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” not be able to get a behind-the-scenes look at what is going on in the White House. Cameras, and other members of the Kardashain clan will reportedly be left behind, according to Vanity Fair.

After the meeting, Kushner and wife Ivanka Trump plan for the host of the reality star on their home for dinner, the journal reported.
