Julian Assange will be addressing the Green Party Convention on Saturday morning. (To watch part of his speech and read highlights from what he said, see our story here.) Assange has been heavily involved in the U.S. elections this year, with WikiLeaks’ releasing damaging emails that showed officials in the Democratic party worked against Bernie Sanders’ campaign during the primary. The emails forced the resignation of Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Here’s what you need to know.
Julian Assange is scheduled to speak to the Green Party delegates through a live feed video on Saturday, August 6, the Green Party announced. He’ll be speaking at 11:45 a.m. Central, before the party nominates its presidential and vice presidential candidates. Jill Stein is expected to be the nominee.
Assange will be interviewed by David Cobb, the Green Party’s 2004 presidential nominee and co-founder of Move to Amend.

Jill Stein has said that if she won the presidential election, she would pardon Edward Snowden and put him on her cabinet. She would also give a full pardon to Chelsea Manning.
