6:03 am
faces major opposition to the idea high might fire jeff sessions and robert mueller. feinstein on cbs's "face the nation" responded to the suggestion mr. trump might move the attorney general to head the department of homeland security. if he does, that would clear the way for the president to replace the attorney general and unlike mr. sessions who has recused himself, the new a.g. could fire robert mueller who is spearheading the fbi's russia investigation. >> i think there has been sufficient opposition for the president not to do so unless of course what he really intends is to end up firing mueller. which could well be the beginning of the end of his presidency. >> senator feinstein also addressed north korea's development of intercontinental ballistic missiles. she said it's a clear and present danger to the u.s. and points out the danger of isolating a country. >> a couple in concord used

6:06 am
permit parking program back in february that goes into effect tomorrow. only cars with a permit can park for longer than four hours. so that means somebody who's going into the city for a full day of work could come home to find a parking ticket tacked to their windshield. ferry officials want to emphasize there are four other ways to get to the ferry. a free bus, ac transit line 21. you can also bike, walk, or get dropped off. but you can expect a lot of people will be getting here much earlier starting tomorrow. live in alameda, tiffany wilson, abc 7 newses. >> thank you. possible relief for bay area residents tormented by the sound of airport noise over the years, especially right along the peninsula. the faa is considering several ways to reduce noise created by planes flying into sfo. the chronicle obtained a copy of the report. it outlined several possible solutions including a new flight path for incoming planes.
