Mueller's office obtained a guilty plea from Flynn for lying to the FBI about contacts with the USA ambassador to Russian Federation, and the former Trump aide is now cooperating with the investigation.

Earlier Wednesday, the president called the congressional and federal inquiries on Russian Federation the "single greatest Witch Hunt in American history", urging Republican lawmakers to "take control" of the proceedings. In a tweet on Wednesday (10 January), Trump urged Republicans to "finally take control" of the investigation. It does hurt our government.

Norway's leader says her country is committed to the Paris climate agreement and sees tremendous economic opportunities in the green economy. Certainly I'll see what happens.

Roberts followed up that embarrassment by asking Trump to answer the actual question, which turned out to be that Trump doesn't actually think he will submit to the interview, after all.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican who serves on the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, said it would make sense for the President to be "cooperative".
