From Morning Report, 7:49 am on 4 December 2017

Donald Trump has lashed out at the FBI and issued a fresh denial that he asked the bureau's former director James Comey to halt an investigation into his former intelligence chief Michael Flynn. Mr Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is now cooperating with an investigation into Russian interference in last year's presidential election. Mr Trump told reporters that Mr Flynn's admission did not reflect badly on his administration. Washington correspondent Nina Maria Potts joins us with the latest.
