Kim Kardashian meets with VP Harris, pardoned prisoners at White House

Kim Kardashian made a return to the White House this week to discuss criminal justice reform with Vice President Kamala Harris.

The reality TV star — and billionaire business mogul — joined a roundtable discussion Thursday regarding the 11 pardons issued and five sentences commuted by President Joe Biden the day prior.

Kardashian was joined by Jason Hernandez, Bobby Lowery, Jesse Mosley and Beverly Holcy — all of whom had been behind bars for decades on nonviolent drug offenses. The clemency recipients spoke with Kardashian and shared their experiences with the justice system.

“I’m just here to help and to spread the word,” Kardashian said, telling the former prisoners she was “honored to be here to hear your stories.”

She vowed to “continue this fight and to learn more every day,” saying she’d advocate for prison reform with any administration, no matter who’s in office.

Kardashian, who previously worked with former President Donald Trump to get convicted drug trafficker Alice Marie Johnson’s life sentence commuted in 2018, encouraged the fellow guests to share and “amplify” their personal stories to help increase understanding regarding the obstacles former prisoners face as they reenter society.

“Every time I’ve gone and visited a prison, I’ve met some of the smartest individuals with the brightest ideas … The changes that are happening to make their reentry easier, I think, is going to be life-changing and give so many people hope,” the 43-year-old SKIMS founder said.

During her remarks, Vice President Harris confirmed the finalization of a new rule limiting most of the restrictions on small business loan eligibility for people with criminal records.
