7:07 am
send a delegation to the olympics. martha raddatz is tracking the latest. she's there in seoul, south korea. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. after months of terrifying nuclear headlines coming out of north korea, today was a welcome and startling change on the peninsula, beginning with a walk across the border. this morning, on the world's most heavily fortified border, a delegation of north korean officials walked brinkley over that small dividing line right into south korea, enemy territory. greeted by south korean counterparts, the men shook hands, smiling and got down to business. and it did not take long. for the first time in eight years, north korea agreed to send its athletes, a figure skating pair and maybe more, to the upcoming olympic games as well as a cheerleading group and performance troupe.
7:08 am
the olympics' opening ceremony side by side with the north korean team. the north koreans calling it a new year's gift. for the south an insurance policy that kim jong-un won't disrupt the games. the south did bring up hopes of denuclearization with north korea today. the north said absolutely nothing in response. and there is no guarantee kim won't test another missile in the coming weeks. he is likely just one or two tests away from perfecting a nuclear tipped missile that could potentially reach the u.s. exactly the deterrent and negotiating power he wants. president trump had said he welcomed these talks between the north and south about the olympic games but says kim jong-un knows he is not messing around when it comes to demanding the north halt its nuclear weapons program and the pressure will continue. robin. >> it will, all right. thank you, martha.
7:09 am
the russia investigation. special counsel robert mueller has told president trump's legal team that he is likely to request an interview with the president, could come in a matter of weeks and our senior justice correspondent pierre thomas is tracking the investigation from washington. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning. that's right, george. special counsel mueller has indicated to president trump's attorneys that his team may want to interview the president and sources tell us that trump's legal team is pondering how to respond if an official request is made. would they be willing to allow the president to sit down to be interviewed or would they want to limit the scope and allow the president to respond only in written form? it's unclear, george, whether mueller will accept the more limited option. >> hard to imagine he would accept that option especially because in the past presidents have sat down with special counsels, ronald reagan did it, bill clinton did it before the grand jury, george w. bush did it. >> reporter: absolutely. the president has maintained there was no collusion and he's done nothing wrong so he may feel it's perfectly fine to do the interview because he's got nothing to hide but the trump lega
7:10 am
be careful. this is a way for mueller to get the president on the record and ask questions not only about allegations of russian collusion generally but there could also be a lot of specific questions including what the president knew about that trump tower meeting with the russians and his role in crafting don junior's misleading statement about that trump tower meeting. and, remember, george, the special counsel's team will be holding all the cards with information from witnesses that have already been interviewed and a lot of unknown, for example, what is michael flynn telling the special counsel? the former national security adviser pled guilty in exchange for cooperation and he's looking at zero to six months in jail, some legal experts say that's a pretty sweet deal, george. what did mueller get in exchange for such a sweet deal? >> of course, the big risk for the president any false statements before the special counsel could bring charges. pierre thomas, thanks very much. we're going to get more from the white house now. cecilia vega is there and, cecilia, want to switch gears and pick up on that oprah boom that got kicked off. possible tal
7:11 am
2020. what was the reaction at the white house? >> reporter: well, we don't actually know whether the president saw oprah's speech. we know his daughter did. take a look, george. she's tweeting overnight just saw oprah's empowering and inspiring speech at last night's golden globes. let's all come together, women and men and say time's up, united. got quite a response. people like alyssa milano saying you can donate to the time's up movement in you want to support people like your own father's accusers so got a little rough online for ivanka overnight. now, in the late '90s, donald trump was asked who he would choose as a running mate if he decided to run for office. he named oprah and you know that interview you had with him on the day he announced his candidacy for this office, he said, i like oprah. so we will see the official line from the white house is we welcome all challengers. >> of course, democrats have a big decision ahead for themselves. lots of business in washington right now. going to sit down again trying to avoid the government
7:12 am
january 19th but this president trump's demand for a border wall still a huge sticking point. >> reporter: yeah, and that shutdown, the clock is ticking. this border wall, this issue of immigration is the main sticking point right now on this issue. we're looking at the shutdown and potentially just nine days away so democrats and republicans will be here for this. for democrats it's a nonstarter, $18 billion for this wall they say, no dice. president trump, a huge campaign promise. perhaps his biggest and demanding this wall and border security be part of this funding measure. nancy pelosi told reporters yesterday she's skeptical they can get anything done during this meeting so that just shows you, george, where they're starting on this one, really both sides digging in. >> meantime, on immigration yesterday, cecilia, the trump administration taking away that protected status for salvadorians who have been here since 2000. >> reporter: yeah, more than a
7:13 am
quarter of a million people. essentially it protects salvadorians and the country illegally from being deported. they now have until september 2019 to stay in this country. how are you going to force all of these people out of this country? they're here. they've got lives here. their country depends on these remittance, schumer is calling this heartless and reckless. >> thanks very much. >> we'll move on from politics now to that powerful storm out west forcing thousands to evacuate. there are serious concerns about flooding and mudslides. in the same areas devastated by recent wildfires. matt gutman is in california where the storm is moving in. good morning, matt. >> reporter: hey, good morning, you can see the rain coming down. it is forecast to come down at over an inch an hour and i want to give you a sense of why these mudslides are such a threat here. so after a fire comes roaring through here, it basically bakes in some of this soil making it waxy so kind
7:14 am
then everything comes sliding down the mountain here and the major concern is that so many of these fires have burned right over populated areas like this one. this morning, the first major winter rainstorm lashing the same parts of southern california scorched by wildfires this fall. hillsides that were engulfed in flames just weeks ago now completely denuded leaving nothing to hold the soil in place. >> i mean, look at the hill. there's nothing slowing it down. >> reporter: right,000s are under mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders. fears over flash floods and landslides growing this morning. intersections already inundated in some parts, residents using sand, hay and sheets of plastic to prevent the scorched hillsides from collapsing. the claffey family is facing their second evacuation in less than a month and met them in
7:15 am
thomas fire tore through. what are awe parade of? >> the fire. >> reporter: is it flowing? >> it's stuck on the other side. >> reporter: now leaving again, it was little macy's first day back at school since the fires. the family's arming itself with sandbags and makeshift waterways to channel the water away from the house hoping to fight off another potential disaster. >> if our house were flooded, it would be devastating. absolutely devastating. >> reporter: it is so hard for so many of these families to kick start their lives back up again. now, we're forecast to see rain well over an inch an hour. that is dangerous and it's no idle threat in a town like la conchita where we are here, in 2005 mudslides from this very mountain killed ten people in this town. now, most residents have evacuated. but not all of them. robin. >> all right, matt, thank you very much. they have been through so much. let's go to ginger who is tracking the timing of this
7:16 am
>> good morning. this rain is widespread. san francisco had its wettest day on record since 2014 and look at this, that widespread rain heavy at times, matt is about to get into one of those squall lines. that's why we see that flash flood warning over the whole thomas burn scar area so that's all just east of santa barbara. they've already reported quarter inch of rain in five minutes. so that's going to be the issue. how quickly this heavy rain falls and then you've got wind, 30 to 50-mile-per-hour gusts in the valleys in the coast, up in the mountains up to 70, even 90-mile-per-hour gust, the timing of this, there's a little spurt this afternoon, then it's gone and moves across the nation, robin. >> ginger, thanks very much. michael. >> thank you. we turn to new fallout from a hazing death. a judge is now banned the fraternity from pennsylvania for ten years and three fraternity brothers are facing jail time after the death of a pledge in 2013. abc's diane macedo is here with the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. not only were the fraternity brothers sentenc
7:17 am
but the fraternity itself was also sentenced and now the case is not only impacting the whole state of pennsylvania, but it could set a precedent nationwide. a fraternity is banned in the state of pennsylvania and four members face up to two years in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter in the 2013 hazing death of 19-year-old michael deng. >> having spoke with each and every one of them i don't doubt for a second that there is remorse on behalf of each and every one of them. >> reporter: pi delta psi prohibited from operating anywhere in the state for ten years meaning its chapters at penn state and carnegie mellon will be shut down. attributed to injuries from being repeatedly tackled by fraternity members during a rich wh ritual at a rented home and waited more than an hour before getting help. >> there shouldn't have been any delay and yet there was and then afterwards there was a cover-up. >> reporter: the decision is having ramifications for other victims of hazing, as well.
7:18 am
agreed on monday to take over the penn state hazing case that left timothy piazza dead in 2017. he fell down a flight of stairs. his parents put out a statement saying in order for there to be real and meaningful change, prosecutors and the court systems throughout the country need to take a tougher stance on these types of crimes. and penn state said they've implemented some changes to increase safety and we reached out to baruch college but so far no response. >> thanks so much. ginger, back to you. big i can't rememberup coming up. >> above 60 in nashville, yes, headed for many of us east of the rockies.

8:15 am
screening test for cancer because of the question, is that screening test doing more harm than good? so to be clear, this is a shared decision-making process. it is not one size fits all. it appears the biggest benefit of screening is between men age 55 to 69 and it depends on the age of that man and his again health. we're talking about about this blood test mostly called a psa so this is a controversial area and it's something that men should discuss with their health care provider. >> and romney's case he had his treated surgically. what are the other options. >> more options for treating prostate cancer than many other. if you okay at the list and this is -- there's surveillance called watchful waiting or surveillance, surgery, radiation therapy, cryotherapy then you go on to hormonal therapy, chemo. some vaccines. if it has spread to the bone you can target that. there are a ton of options and it's really something that

8:18 am
you divvy it up. money goes into the survival envelope first. rent, food, transportation, medical and phone. next envelope is called optional. think restaurants and shopping, then culture, movie, concerts, and finally extra, or surprise expenses like gifts, donations and emergencies. >> when we set goals, that really gives us the motivation to do things like stick to a spending plan. >> reporter: a daily nudge in the direction of getting fiscally fit. now, the book is not available right now in the u.s. but it will be this fall. the publisher tells us but great tips for really getting that debt under control. >> oh, great tips and i'm looking at it. you're going to have to really put some entries in here. i'm thinking maybe a more modern -- >> the same concept of the envelope budgeting can be done with a couple of apps. this one is called good budget and you see it lets you create your own
