Before she meets with the president, Vanity Fair reports that Kardashian will sit will Kushner to discuss prison reform.

The meeting, first reported by Vanity Fair Tuesday night, follows months of behind-the-scenes talks between Kardashian and Jared Kushner. She's reportedly interested in wide prison reform; she's also seeking to free Cyntoia Brown, who was sentenced to 60 years for killing a man who she says was soliciting her for sex when she was 16 and forced into prostitution.

Kardashian's husband, rapper Kanye West, sparked headlines last month after posting a series of tweets in which he praised Trump's "dragon energy" and showed off his signed "Make America Great Again" hat.

Johnson's case gained national attention in 2017, when Mic published a video of Johnson talking about her case and her life behind bars from inside the prison.

In November, Kardashian West hired her personal attorney Shawn Chapman Holley to assist with the case. Those conversations picked up in recent weeks alongside Kushner's broader efforts to pass a criminal justice reform bill in Congress. "I would explain to him that, just like everybody else, we can make choices in our lives that we're not proud of and that we don't think through all the way", she said.

Johnson was expected to be released during the Obama administration after being imprisoned for more than 21 years.

Kim Kardashian arrives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala (Met Gala) to celebrate the opening of "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination" in the Manhattan borough of NY, U.S., May 7, 2018.

Alice Marie Johnson said she remains hopeful that Trump will pardon her. His father, Charles Kushner, spent more than a year in a federal prison camp in Alabama on charges of tax evasion, illegal campaign contributions, and witness tampering, the magazine reported.
