Kim Kardashian West Returns to White House to Appeal for Another Prisoner's Release
After meeting with President Trump in May, she lobbied for the release of great grandmother Alice Marie Johnson.
Kim Kardashian has returned to the White House, reportedly seeking help from President Trump again.
The reality TV star recently revealed in a podcast that she's working on another case.
"I had a call with a gentleman that's in prison for a drug case," she said on "Wrongful Conviction With Jason Flom." "Got life. It's so unfair. He's 30 years old. He's been in for almost 10 years."
She was talking about Chris Young, who was sentenced to life without parole in a drug possession case in Tennessee.
Kardashian attended a meeting at the White House Wednesday with Trump's son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner.
Three months ago, Kardashian convinced Trump to commute the sentence of Alice Johnson, a grandmother and nonviolent drug offender, who served 21 years in prison.
Following the meeting, Kardashian tweeted about how she is pushing for "real systematic change," and included photos of her sit-down with the White House officials, including Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
Meanwhile, the White House is launching a counter strike over an explosive new Bob Woodward book, "Fear: Trump in the White House," which describes a turmoil and chaos among presidential staffers.
"Fear" quotes top administration officials as privately calling the president “an idiot," "off the rails" and having the intellect of "a fifth- or sixth-grader."
President Trump has rejected the book as "total fiction."
Three weeks ago, the president called Woodward and claimed he never received direct word from his staff that the journalist wanted to interview him for his bombshell book. Woodward taped the conversation with the president's permission.
“If you would call Madeleine in my office," Trump asks. "Did you speak to Madeleine?"
Woodward replied that he didn’t speak to Madeleine, to which Trump prompted: "Madeleine is the key. She's the secret."
"Madeleine" is 27-year-old Madeleine Westerhout, who is the president's personal secretary.
Images of her escorting bigwigs through the Trump Tower lobby to meet with the then-president-elect were seen around the world.
Westerhout of Irvine, California, graduated from the College of Charleston in 2013, with a degree in political science. She's a former fitness instructor.
