Kardashian paid a visit to the White House on Wednesday to meet with Trump and his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform. 

Vanity Fair reported Wednesday morning that Kardashian was also expected to push for a pardon for Alice Marie Johnson, a 65-year-old woman who is serving a life sentence in prison for a nonviolent drug offense. So far, Johnson has spent more than 20 years in federal prison. 

Kardashian reportedly heard about Johnson’s case in a Mic video, and has since advocated for her release. She has reportedly been in talks with Kushner, who is overseeing the administration’s prison reform efforts.
