Reality TV star Kim Kardashian will meet with President Donald Trump to discuss prison reform on Wednesday after months of back-channel talks with White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner.

Kushner and Kardashian have reportedly been speaking through back channels for months regarding prison reform.

Kushner has been an advocate for prison reform ever since his father, Charles Kushner, served a year in prison.

According to Vanity Fair:

“Prison reform is an issue near and dear to Kushner, whose father, Charles, spent more than a year in a federal prison camp in 2005 and 2006 on charges of tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions, and witness tampering. 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.”

Along with discussing prison reform, Kardashian is reportedly also going to ask Trump to grant Alice Johnson a presidential pardon.

Johnson is a “62-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense.”
