President Donald Trump and Kim Kardashian Met in in the Oval Office to discuss prison reform and the pardon of a first-time drug offender.
Donald Trump posed for a photo with Kim Kardashian in the Oval Office after a ‘great meeting’ discussing prison reform.
The reality star spent an hour at the White House on Wednesday in a meeting with the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner that also included a conversation with Trump about a first-time drug offender and great-grandmother serving a life sentence in prison.
‘Today’s her birthday, so no greater gift than freedom on her birthday,’ Barnett said of her 63-year-old client petitioning for a pardon.
Kardashian had a confirmed meeting on prison reform with Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser. Barnett said it was her ‘hope’ that Kardashian would also have an opportunity to plead Johnson’s case to the president.
That hope came true.
Kardashian, 37, in both her meetings with Kushner and the president, discussed a pardon for Johnson, who will otherwise spend the rest of her life in prison for a first-time drug offense.
Johnson’s life sentence did not come with the opportunity for parole.
Her conviction and incarceration caught the eye of Kardashian on Twitter earlier this year.
Kardashian said in a tweet Wednesday morning that confirmed reports that she was headed to the White House: ‘Happy Birthday Alice Marie Johnson. Today is for you.’
The White House confirmed Kardashian was expected.
‘She is expected to be here at the White House. I can confirm she’ll be here,’ press secretary Sarah Sanders told during a news conference. ‘We’ll keep you posted on any meetings that take place, what those look like.’
