Kim Kardashian, 37, has reportedly been talking with Jared Kushner, 37, for months and will meet with President Donald Trump, 71, on May 30, Vanity Fair reporters.

According to Vanity Fair, the beauty entrepreneur has been in talks with Trump's in-law Jared Kushner for a while, and she's finally visiting.

Vanity Fair reports Kim Kardashian West will be at the White House on Wednesday to seek a pardon for a 62-year-old grandmother now serving a life sentence in prison for a nonviolent, first-time drug offense.

Her case would give Trump one more opportunity to do the opposite of his predecessor. West intends to ask Trump to pardon a 62-year-old woman who is serving a life sentence after being convicted of a first-time drug offense in 1996. "Today is for you", Kardashian tweeted on Wednesday, which is Johnson's birthday.

Kushner, whose father spent time in prison, has made prison reform a personal passion, saying he wants to help those who "have made mistakes, paid the price and are deserving of a second chance".

A source says 37-year-old reality TV star and her legal advisor have booked in a meeting with Trump on Wednesday to lobby for a pardon for Alice, who is now being held at Aliceville Correctional Facility in Alabama.

White House: 'No one's defending' Roseanne, but Trump still owed apology
Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC. Sanders said Trump was calling out Iger's and ABC's "bias", adding that "no one is defending what [Barr] said".

Johnson's story first caught the reality television star's eye after she saw a short video about the case posted on social media.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Kardashian's visit during Wednesday's press briefing, although she wouldn't say which people she would be meeting with Wednesday.

Actor Sylvester Stallone successfully lobbied Trump for a posthumous pardon of legendary boxer Jack Johnson.

West also paid a visit to the then-president-elect in NY before his inauguration. While President Obama granted 1,927 clemency requests before leaving office, Johnson was not one of them. "We then began corresponding with Alice and her team of lawyers", Holley previously said.

Scholl added that Johnson has admitted her wrongdoing, which is borne out in letters she has written to U.S. District Judge Samuel H. Mays, who now oversees her case. McCartney reported from Los Angeles.
