Earlier today, Vanity Fair reported that after “months of talks between Jared Kushner and Kim Kardashian is set to culminate in a meeting with President Trump, in which the reality-TV star will ask him to pardon a 62-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense.”
Alice Marie Johnson, the grandmother whose case likely came up, was expected to be released during the Obama administration, however, she was not among those granted clemency.
Kardashian has previously called Johnson’s situation “unfair.”
