Johnson is a 62-year-old great-grandmother who was imprisoned in 1996 and is serving a life sentence for a first-time, nonviolent drug offense.
Ms. Barnett, who has served as a member of Ms. Johnson's legal team since November, said that Ms. Kardashian West and Ms. Johnson have spoken over the phone but have never met in person. "Great meeting with @KimKardashian today, talked about prison reform and sentencing", he captioned the photo.
If you rubbed your eyes when you saw pictures of Kim Kardashian stood in The White House with Donald Trump this morning, you're not seeing things. The 62-year-old great-grandmother is now serving a life sentence in Alabama for money laundering and drug conspiracy related to her involvement in a cocaine ring.
Kardashian West is thought to have been involved in private discussions with Kushner and Ivanka Trump for several months.

While convincing Kushner's father-in-law to support Johnson may not be so easy, Kardashian does have history on her side.
Per Vanity Fair, "White House staffers have joked about who will get to accompany her to the West Wing, and what they should wear for the occasion". "Today is for you". The goals, Kardashian has said, are to get Alice Marie Johnson's case in front of Trump and to secure a presidential pardon. The 1994 indictment describes dozens of deliveries and drug transactions, many involving Johnson.
A criminal justice advocacy site, CAN-DO, and one of Johnson's attorneys say a request for clemency was rejected by former President Barack Obama.
According to the ACLU, Johnson is one of 3,278 people serving life without parole for a nonviolent offense.
