Hey isn’t that … British human rights attorney Amal Clooney hitting the marble halls of Congress on Thursday?

The forever glamorous Clooney, dressed in a white peplum blazer and matching pencil skirt, was business as usual while working on behalf of her client Khadija Ismayilova, a journalist who has been imprisoned in Azerbaijan since 2014 for alleged crimes against the state. At the time of her arrest, Ismayilova was investigating corruption allegations against Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev.

Clooney, who like her famous husband (that would be George, and, no, he wasn’t there) is a regular face on the Hill, met with Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), co-chair of the bipartisan Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission. According to a spokesman for McGovern, the lawyer and the congressman spoke for nearly 40 minutes about how to increase momentum in the call for Ismayilova’s release.

“Our world is safer when journalists have the freedom to expose corruption and hold the powerful accountable,” McGovern said, according to an emailed statement, “and that is exactly what Khadija Ismayilova did in Azerbaijan. I am proud to join Amal Clooney in the push to free Khadija and urge the White House and every member of Congress to join me in this effort.”
