if she does, sources say trump is eyeing a political rally instead. on day 32 of the shutdown, democrats are rejecting what the president called a compromise. >> let me be very clear. open up government. open the government. let's talk. >> reporter: the president's offer -- temporary protections for dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the u.s. as children, in exchange for the $5.7 billion to build his border wall. but today, the supreme court undercut that plan, leaving protections for dreamers in place through october. now 800,000 federal workers about to miss their second paycheck. in tennessee, jon manley, an air traffic controller and father of seven, is driving for uber on his days off. >> it doesn't come anywhere close to offsetting the salary that we're missing. >> reporter: fbi agents are also looking for other work. >> fbi agents should not have to go work at a store stocking shelves because they can't feed their families on their
government job. >> reporter: agents warn the shutdown is making us less safe. that they are unable to do undercover work without the funds to buy drugs or firearms from gang members, and that they are putting "pervs on standby" which "puts children in jeopardy." one agent saying, "the fear is our enemies know they can run freely." >> so, let's get to mary bruce, up live on the hill again tonight. and mary, we know there will be several votes on the senate later this week that you'll have your eye on. but what are the chances that president trump will be on capitol hill a week from tonight, delivering his state of the union? >> reporter: well, david, sources tell us the president is preparing to give this speech, but the big question now is where. we're told he's preparing two different versions. one that he can give here on the hill you and another if pelosi disinvites him, that he could take on the road. david? >> mary bruce tonight. mary, thank you. we're going to turn to a remarkable scene playing out in a moscow courtroom today. the former u.s. marine accused of spying in moscow. he was seen in public for the first time since his arrest today. paul whelan there in a glass

secrets. but analysts believe that this may be payback for the arrest of maria butina, the russian agent who pleaded guilty to trying to infiltrate american conservative political circles. >> this is common kgb tradecraft. to set somebody up who clearly was not a spy, and to trade them later on for somebody who is a spy. >> and martha raddatz with us again tonight. martha, we know he was a former marine who did several tours, but we also know that he was discharged from the marines? >> reporter: yes, david. about ten years ago, whelan was kicked out for attempted larceny and dereliction of duty, among other charges. but if the russians find him guilty of spying, he could face 20 years in prison. david? >> all right, martha raddatz who continues to follow this case for us. thank you, martha. and with that deadly storm just finishing its work, now we're watching tonight yet another storm system moving from west to east at this hour. in fact, winter weather alerts up for 20 states from colorado to new york. that arctic blast still gripping much of the country at this hour. this image of niagara falls, take a look, full of ice there tonight.
