Kim Kardashian has arrived at the White House.

The KKW Beauty mogul was spotted outside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in a black power suit Wednesday, where she is reportedly speaking with advisors including Jared Kushner about the case of Alice Marie Johnson, according to CNN and Vanity Fair.

NBC News shared a brief Twitter video of her heading into the People’s House.

The White House did not return PEOPLE’s request for information/comment. Sarah Sanders, in her daily press briefing, confirmed Kardashian’s visit. “She is expected to be here at the White House,” she said. “I can confirm that she will be here. We’ll keep you posted on any meetings that take place and what those look like.”

It’s not known whether she will meet with President Donald Trump, whom her husband Kanye West has praised publicly in controversial tweets. (Kardashian, 37, supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.)

Johnson, 62, is a great-grandmother who was incarcerated in October 1996 for a first-time nonviolent drug offense after she helped facilitate communications in a drug trafficking case. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been helping campaign for her presidential pardon.

In a personal essay published on CNN earlier this month, Johnson opened up about what Kardashian’s help has meant to her, including the spotlight that has been placed on her case.

“Some refer to prison as a place where hope dies. Some days I’ve found that to be almost right,” Johnson wrote. “Each time that I’ve come close [to giving up], God has restored my faith.”

“So when the unlikely voices of Kim Kardashian West and Jared Kushner came together to shine a spotlight on my case, I could only thank God, for he works in mysterious ways,” she continued.
