The non-profit Kanye West founded has proclaimed they are distancing themselves from the hip-hop star and changing their name after a very public fight with Kim Kardashian, but it turns out the organization was already in peril of being shut down long before the fight with Kanye went viral.
"If you think about a decision that you've made in your life and you get life without the possibility of parole for your first time non-violent offense, there's just something so wrong with that", Kim told Mic.com recently.
Ahead of the meeting with the guy who insists the Central Park Five are guilty despite DNA evidence, Kardashian and her attorney will join Kushner in the West Wing for a prison reform discussion.

According to U.S. media reports, Johnson's conviction stemmed from her leading role in a multimillion-dollar drug ring that dealt thousands of kilograms of cocaine over a three-year period. It was revealed earlier this month that Kardashian West had spoken on the phone with Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, to discuss potentially granting Johnson clemency.
