Kardashian hopes to make a legal argument to President Trump for why he should pardon Alice Johnson, a 62-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence without parole for a first-time drug offense.

Johnson's daughters confirmed today's meeting to BBC News. She has highlighted the cases of two women, Johnson and Cyntoia Brown. In an op-ed titled "Why Kim Kardashian Thinks I Should Be Released From Prison" for CNN, Johnson wrote that her life "began to spiral out of control" after the loss of her son and her divorce.
