Kim Kardashian asked and President Trump answered.

The reality television star is also hoping to speak with President Donald Trump about a pardon or clemency for a Tennessee man serving a lifetime prison sentence on drug charges.

On "Wrongful Convictions", Kardashian West, who now receives "stacks of letters daily" from inmates, divulged that she talks to the White House "often on this subject", with Kushner.

Since that meeting, Kardashian West has kept in touch with Jared Kushner who has led White House efforts on prison reform.

Earl Thomas says he is ending holdout, reporting to Seahawks
Thomas' reaction to the lack of a resolution was clear in his post: "The disrespect has been noted and will not be forgotten". Cowboys officials said during training camp that they hadn't really had any talks with the Seahawks since the draft.

In May, Kardashian West met with President Trump in the Oval Office to talk about prison reform and clemency for Alice Marie Johnson. She spoke past year with senior adviser and presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, who also hosted Wednesday's session. Kardashian West had learned of Johnson's case from a Mic interview.

Kim Kardashian West has made a decision to help free a 30-year-old man who's serving a life sentence for drug possession, after she successfully got release for Alice Johnson earlier this year.

That's according to a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the matter on the record.

Kim wants the President to get behind prison reform legislation that will rejigger sentences so they fit the crime.

Suspect Killed In Deputy-Involved Shooting At Del Mar Racetrack
At 7:22 p.m., Del Mar Racetrack tweeted that the incident had been contained and that the concert was taking place as planned. The sheriff's department said the alleged gunman shot by deputies was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla.

Young, who was 26 at the time, received a life sentence in August 2014 from then-U.S. District Judge Kevin Sharp, who has since left the bench and has very publicly opposed the mandatory minimum sentencing he had to hand down. He was only twenty-six years old.

In prison, Chris is said to study in his free time and read as much as he can.

The Dallas Morning News reported in June that Brittany K. Barnett, who was a member of Johnson's legal team, was also working to get Young released.

"It's scary when you have a minor drug charge but then you get life and you're stuck in this insane maximum-security prison with murderers and people [like that]", the 37-year-old reality star continued.
