Kim Kardashian on Wednesday made her second visit to the White House this year to talk criminal justice, months after she successfully appealed for the release of a great-grandmother convicted of cocaine trafficking.
The reality TV star was one of around 50 people, including US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, set to discuss the clemency process, the White House said in a statement.
“The discussion is mainly focused on ways to improve that process to ensure deserving cases receive a fair review,” deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said
Fixing tough sentencing laws had been a priority of former president Barack Obama’s administration, but he failed to win congressional support, prompting a stream of presidential pardons and clemency actions
Trump, meanwhile, has advocated a more hardline approach to criminal justice.
during her first White House visit in May, Kardashian met the president and called for the release of Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old woman who served over 20 years for a nonviolent drug offense.
Days later, the White House said Trump had commuted Johnson’s sentence.
