While Kim Kardashian West is focusing into criminal justice reform, her husband, Kanye West is supporting her on every step.
According to PEOPLE, a source said that Kanye West is feeling so proud and excited about the love of his life and the mother of his children’s work in prison reform in the wake of her recent White House visit. He hopes that Kim will continue to pursue efforts in that area.
A year ago, Kim posted on Snapchat that her own attorney, Mike Kump thought she is skilled enough to be a lawyer.
“Okay guys, I’m here with my attorney, Mike Kump, who does all of my lawsuits, everything — and listen to what he was just telling me,” Kim said.
“You’ve got the perfect instincts, you’ve got great judgment, and you know how to present your position in the most articulate manner and convince people of your point of view,” he told her. “Will you please join my law firm?”
On Wednesday last week, Kim went on a visit to the White House for the second time this year, for a listening session headed by Jared Kushner about prison reform and the clemency process. Part of the session was also Donald Trump’s wife, Ivanka Trump and her daughter.
Kim also tweeted pictures from the session, captioning:
It started with Ms. Alice, but looking at her and seeing the faces and learning the stories of the men and women I’ve met inside prisons I knew I couldn’t stop at just one. It’s time for REAL systemic change.

The first meeting between Kim and President Trump was in June this year. The purpose of their meeting was to support the 63-year-old first-time nonviolent drug offender, Alice Marie Johnson, who in 1996 was given a life sentence without parole. Eventually, the White House declared that Alice would receive clemency and be freed.
“Ms. Johnson has accepted responsibility for her past behavior and has been a model prisoner over the past two decades,” the White House statement read at the time. “While this Administration will always be very tough on crime, it believes that those who have paid their debt to society and worked hard to better themselves while in prison deserve a second chance.”
