President Obama will address reporters one final time from the White House this afternoon. Obama is expected to address recent revelations surrounding Russian interference in the U.S. election, his commutation of Chelsea Manning's 35-year sentence and his post-White House plans. 

The press conference will start at around 1:15 p.m. Check out the live stream below. 

President Obama says the United States will respond to Russian cyberattacks that the intelligence community has concluded were part of an effort to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats called on Americans to reject what they called the politics of fear and division of the GOP and elect Hillary Clinton during the third day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
