Kim Kardashian Flies To White House & Fights To Overturn Another Life Sentence

Kim Kardashian West is taking on the case of another prisoner with a life sentence, after her campaign to free Alice Marie Johnson earlier this year was successful, according to a new report. That's according to a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the matter on the record.

- Kim Kardashian West is reportedly in Washington, DC to meet with President Donald Trump, TMZ reports.

"It's scary when you have a minor drug charge but then you get life and you're stuck in this insane maximum-security prison with murderers and people [like that]", the 37-year-old reality star continued. In an emotional video capturing her reunion with her family, Johnson thanked President Trump and sang out "Hallelujah!"
