CNN’s Wolf Blitzer sat down this past weekend in Cairo for an exclusive interview with Egypt’s President Mohamed Morsy. Egypt’s president said that he is planning to visit the United States, “before the end of the first quarter of this year.” During that visit, Morsy said he would like to speak with President Barack Obama about the release of the blind Egyptian cleric who was convicted in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing: “I want him to be free, but I respect the law and the rule of law in Egypt and the United States. What I am talking about isn't a violation.” A highlight from the interview is after the jump and the full interview will continue to air this week on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on CNN and CNN International.

CNN chief business correspondent Ali Velshi (@alivelshi) speaks with investors Ned Riley and Gina Martin Adams regarding their 2013 outlook on the stock market.
Newark Mayor Cory Booker says that there is too much to do in his city to run a campaign against Governor Chris Christie this year, but reflects on his decision to run for Senate and highlights that Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) has “a decision to make” on whether he’s going to run again or not.
Mayor Booker says, “I want to give him the space to make his own decision. I’ve announced my intention to run, but the reality is is we’ve got a good Senator. He’s been loyal. He’s been there for a long time. And I think he’s got a decision to make. So, I’m focusing on my job for now. And I hope to talk to him. We’ve reached out to him a number of times. In fact, I had a plane trip going down to meet with him, but unfortunately with a lot of the challenges going down in Washington, he had to cancel the meeting.”
