Kim Kardashian is to meet President Trump to ask him to pardon a crime


Kim Kardashian is better known as a reality star and as a fashionable beauty than as an advocate for social consciousness or changing the correctional system

Fans may be surprised to discover that Kim has been engaged in months-long talks with Jared Kushner and is to meet President Trump in order to ask him to issue a pardon for a convicted felon, reported Vanity Fair.

On the afternoon of the 30th of May 2018, Kim and her attorney will be escorted by Secret Service agents to the West Wing, where they will meet Kushner to discuss prison reform.

After their meeting, Kushner will be leading Kim to the Oval Office, to meet the President. It is reported that she will be suing for a pardon from the President for a 62-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense.


“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,”

Jared Kushner, Vanity Fair, 30th of May 2018

Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, is a crusader for prison reform, since his father, Charles, served a sentence for tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions, and witness tampering from 2005 and 2006 in a federal prison.

Kushner joined the White House as a senior adviser, and he promised that he would reform and improve the correctional system that had marked his father.

He has been instrumental in bringing lawmakers, law enforcement officials, and Evangelical leaders together at the White House, and hosting dinner parties at his home with influential Washington movers-and-shakers.

He was a fervent supporter of the First Step Act, which provides job training and drug-treatment programs for prisoners, improving their chances at re-entering society successfully.

The Act also gives nonviolent offenders the possibility of finishing their sentences in halfway houses or home confinement.


The House passed the First Step Act in a 360-59 vote, and President Trump promised Kushner that he would sign the bill.

Kardashian has recently become commited to prison reform, and was moved by the story of Alice Johnson to ask for a pardon from the President.

Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother, is serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense committed more than 21 years ago.

Kardashian read about Johnson’s ordeal on Twitter earlier this year, and knowing that Kuchner is involved in the reform movement, reached out to Ivanka.

The Trump administration avowed policy is to be hard on crime, and harsher in applying punitive measures for criminals.

The Kushner-Kardashian meeting may be a hopeful sign for those who look forward to a correctional system that invests more in reform and second chances for people who have made mistakes.
