Amal Clooney was reportedly seen at the White House on Monday after Ukraine's Prosecutor General Iryna Venediktova revealed that she had a conversation with the human rights lawyer.

It's not clear what her visit entailed, but the lawyer was asked by Fox Business if she was visiting the White House in connection to the refugee crisis amid the Ukraine-Russia war. According to the United Nations, more than three million people have fled Ukraine as Russia invades.

Amal, who wore a black-and-white checkered jacket with black heels for the unknown occasion, was seen walking solo while leaving the White House.

She and her husband George Clooney recently touched down in Washington D.C., reported Fox News. The Hollywood actor and Amal were seen on Monday at an airport in America's capital. The lawyer carried a big shoulder bag. She wore a white T-shirt, an orange jacket, dark pants and matching heels. Her husband was dressed in jeans and a polo shirt.

Amal has not publicly spoken out about her White House visit, but Venediktova revealed last week that she had a conversation with the lawyer. Venediktova tweeted that Amal "stands with Ukraine," and that she had a conversation with the "world-famous British lawyer."

Venediktova also wrote on Twitter that they hope for further "fruitful cooperation for the sake of justice and peace in" Ukraine. A screenshot of the Prosecutor General's video call with Amal was also shared on Twitter.

Amal recently told TIME magazine that she chose human rights law so that she could "help liberate victims." She said that she is responding to what she sees "happening in the world." According to her, it's a world "where the guilty are free, and the innocent are imprisoned...where the human-rights abusers are free, and those who report on the abuses are locked up." She said that as a lawyer, she can do "something about that or I can at least try."

She shared that her work is "focused on trying to help liberate victims and prosecute perpetrators," and that her larger goal is to "improve the system." She said that she is guided by what "I’m really outraged about and what I think I can actually try to influence." She added that it may be that she can only influence things one case at a time, but ultimately, the plan is "always to try and improve the system."
