"Thank you @realDonaldTrump, @SecPompeo, Jared Kushner & everyone involved with the efforts to Free ASAP Rocky & his two friends," Kardashian West tweeted.

"Your commitment to justice reform is so appreciated."

Axios and TMZ reported Thursday that Pompeo was working at the request of the president to have A$AP Rocky released from solitary confinement, following discussions between Kardashian West and Kushner. Kardashian West and Kushner reportedly spoke earlier this month, after which Kushner alerted the president to A$AP Rocky's arrest.


The New York rapper was arrested on July 2 after voluntarily going to the police in Stockholm for questioning over a street fight in which he played a role.

Swedish authorities are set to decide whether to charge the rapper with a crime or release him on Friday.

Kardashian West, who has lobbied for criminal justice reform, worked with Trump last year to secure clemency for Alice Marie Johnson, a 64-year-old who was serving a life sentence on charges of money laundering and drug offenses.
