Kim Kardashian West has revealed details about her Oval Office sit-down with President Trump on Wednesday, in which she lobbied him to grant clemency to Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother who is serving a life sentence in a federal pen for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.

“I think that he really spent the time to listen to our case that we were making for Alice,” Kardashian West told Mic. “He really understood, and I am very hopeful that this will turn out really positively.”

Johnson, who has been imprisoned for over 21 years in Aliceville, Alabama, for a drug-trafficking charge, and Kardashian West has been trying for months to secure Johnson’s release.

Kardashian West has also paid Johnson’s legal fees and discussed the case with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, who is leading the administration’s prison reform initiative.

“I went in … to really talk to the president about Alice Johnson and really explain to him why she would be such a good person to grant clemency to,” Kardashian West told the website. “The president seems to have a passion for what everything that Jared has been trying to do, and that just makes me happy that that conversation is just moving forward.”

Trump tweeted a photograph of the pair following the meeting.

“Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing,” he wrote.”
