Kim Kardashian Meeting With Trump to Discuss Pardoning Alice Marie Johnson

Donda’s House supporters tweet messages of praise to the charity after Kim Kardashian West diss

Johnson was jailed for a first time, nonviolent drug offence in 1997, and is still serving a life sentence at Aliceville Correctional Facility, in Alabama.

Mic reported May 2 that Kardashian West and Kushner had spoken on the phone about the possibility of pardoning Johnson.

"I'm just focused on criminal justice reform and helping one person at a time". Her hubby, rapper Kanye West, recently admitted he's a Trump backer.

Kardashian West is the latest celebrity to ask Trump to use his clemency power.

Prison reform has been a key issue for Kushner. In the photos obtained by TMZ, Kim can be seen entering through the security gate of the West Wing of the White House, and we can't wait to hear what all went down.

Sleeping in on weekends may extend your life
The authors from Stockholm's Karolinska Institute tracked the sleep of more than 43,000 people for 13 years from 1997. People who slept too much, regularly conking out for eight hours or longer a night, also had a worse mortality rate.

Accompanied by her attorney Shawn Chapman Holley, the reality star may meet with Jared Kushner before sitting down with President Trump, according to Vanity Fair.

Sandwiched in between tweets about her makeup line and cardio routine, Kardashian has been not-so-quietly advocating for criminal-justice reform.

"We are optimistic about Ms. Johnson's future and hopeful that she - and so many like her - will get a second chance at life". Sylvester Stallone and boxers Lennox Lewis and Deontay Wilder visited the Oval Office, asking Trump to posthumously pardon Johnson, explaining he was convicted mainly for being black.

During the bitter 2016 election, Kardashian backed Trump's arch-rival Hillary Clinton.

Trump tweeted a picture taken in the Oval Office with Kardashian, who has been advocating for criminal justice reform for the a year ago.

Petroleum price hike: A political game?
He also asked the Odisha government to reduce Value-Added Tax on petroleum products to contain the cascading effect of rising fuel prices.

In November, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star tweeted that the "system has failed" Cyntoia Brown, now 30, who was convicted and sentenced to life for shooting a 43-year-old real estate agent who picked her up as a 16-year-old prostitute. She has already served 21 years. Given a life sentence on October 31, 1996, she has served 21 years at the federal prison in Aliceville, Alabama.

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

In a hand-scrawled letter last June she wrote: "I'm a broken woman". Johnson is now sentenced to life in prison at the Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama.

Say what you will about the Kardashians (personally I find it almost impossible not to admire the hell out of the Kris Jenner Machine and their collective business acumen).
