Who knew former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle considered himself on good terms with President Donald Trump? The 40-year-old pedophile was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 2015 after pleading guilty to a child pornography case and sex charges. Now, after several other failed attempts, he’s looking to be set free — with Trump’s help.

According to TMZ, Fogle filed a petition for a writ of habeas corpus — which simply means he’s filed a direct appeal for the federal prison to release him. He reportedly filed the document against the warden of his prison and included President Trump as a respondent. TMZ said he added the White House’s address on the document, as well.

It’s currently unclear how Fogle thinks President Trump can help him. However, if Fogle thinks he can be pardoned, TMZ said that’s a completely separate document that needs to be filed. The president has yet to comment — or tweet — about the situation.

Since Fogle’s incarceration, he has gained weight, been attacked, and has made multiple failed attempts to be released. Not only that but at the very beginning of his sentence he penned a letter — to a woman he knew years ago who had reached out to him — from his cell at Colorado’s Federal Correctional Institution a letter, which In Touch obtained exclusively, that downplayed his crimes.

He wrote, “It has been a very hard nine months for me. I made a couple of mistakes but nothing like the media reports have said. They are making me into some sort of monster which is absolutely not true…I’m currently appealing my prison sentence and am hoping for the best with it. Bottom line, my director of my foundation and friend did some bad stuff and tried to throw me under the bus with him.”

Most recently, Radar Online reported that Jared exchanged X-rated letters with a prison pen pal and she has completely exposed him. Fogle allegedly revealed his fantasies to the woman when he said, “Boobs are my favorite thing, you know? You can’t show boobs or p—y or anything like that. You know, I mean, but other than that it’s pretty much whatever.”
