Donald Trump has reportedly invited Kim Kardashian to the White House to discuss prison reform.
The reality TV star has been busy campaigning for the release of a 62-year-old grandmother, who was jailed 21 years ago. Kim’s campaign to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson has gained so much momentum she’s actually managed to convince Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump’s husband and senior adviser to the president, to invite her over to discuss it, Vanity Fair reports.
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. At the time, The Tennessean reported that Johnson led a ‘multimillion-dollar drug ring that dealt in tons of cocaine from 1991-94’.
She was one of thousands of first time, nonviolent offenders given long mandatory prison terms, and she will reportedly die in prison unless granted clemency.
