Sources told TMZ that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and her attorney Shawn Holley had scheduled a meeting to discuss the plight of drug offender, Alice Marie Johnson, who is now serving a life sentence without parole for her first offence at the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama. However, her advocacy went a bit too far when she was called on by the White House to meet with Jared Kushner to discuss prison reform.
Kim, who is normally followed around by her Keeping Up With the Kardashians crew, is keeping the cameras at home. I made the biggest mistake of my life to make ends meet and got involved with people selling drugs.
Johnson is now serving a life sentence without parole in Alabama for offenses she committed in the early 1990s.
Kardashian West's White House visit was earlier reported by Vanity Fair. "Not sure if it's both or which that Trump would grant clemency to, but Obama denied their requests".
In an interview, Kardashian West told Mic that if given the opportunity, she would tell Trump that "just like everybody else, we can make choices in our lives that we're not proud of and that we don't think through all the way". "I'm totally against it", he said last week.
According to United States media reports, Johnson's conviction stemmed from her leading role in a multimillion-dollar drug ring that dealt thousands of kilograms of cocaine over a three-year period.
Kardashian hopes to press for the pardon of Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother, according to Vanity Fair.
Kim Kardashian's headed to the White House! Kushner has advocated for prison reform and the First Step Act, legislation to help inmates re-enter society.
In a 2016 op-ed for CNN, Johnson wrote: "I want this part to be clear: I acknowledge that I have done wrong".
