(National Sentinel) It’s Real: If someone told us after POTUS Trump won the White House that someday he’d take a meeting with reality TV star Kim Kardashian, we might have told that person to put down the illegal substances and get some rest.
And yet, just such a meeting is taking place today.
Months in the making, Kardashian has been planning with her lawyer to make a pitch to the president that he pardon a 62-year-old non-violent offender by the name of Alice Johnson, who is 21 years into a life sentence for a first-time drug offense.
According to a report from Vanity Fair, Kardashian will first meet with White House Advisor Jared Kushner, who has been focused heavily on prison reform and then meet up with President Trump, most likely in the Oval Office.
According to Page Six, Kardashian came upon Johnson’s story via Twitter earlier in the year and reached out to Ivanka, who then directed Kardashian to her husband.
“I’ve been in communication with the White House and trying to bring her case to the president’s desk and figure out how we can get her out,” Kardashian said in an interview earlier this month.
Vanity Fair noted that Kushner has a personal connection to prison reform.
His father, Charles Kushner, spent over a year in a federal prison camp (2005-2006) on charges of tax evasion, witness tampering, and illegal campaign contributions.
“The experience left an indelible mark on the young Kushner who, for years, carried a wallet his father made for him in prison; when he joined the White House as senior adviser, he vowed to help improve the system that his father had come through,” Vanity Fair reported.
As reported by The Daily Wire:
Among the actions Kushner has taken to make progress on prison reform is bringing religious leaders and law enforcement officials to the White House to address the issue, holding a series of meetings and hosting dinners with “key Washington power players,” and promoting the bipartisan First Step Act, which offers programs to help inmates be more prepared for civilian life and gives nonviolent offenders more options on how to finish out their sentences, including in home confinement and halfway houses.
“If we can start showing that we can make the prisons more purposeful and more effective at lowering the recidivism rate over time, that may help the people who are trying to make the argument for sentencing reform,” Kushner said this month.
POTUS Trump promised in return, “Get a bill to my desk, and I will sign it.”
