5:03 am
congress in april. democrats watch in frustration as president trump has found exoneration and vindication in barr's summary of mueller's findings, so the attorney general is trying to reassure the public and restless lawmakers that the entire process will be above boornd fair, but for democrats, it's a promise that falls short. president trump praising attorney general william barr's decision to release the mueller record. >> we'll have great confidence in the attorney general, and if that's what he'd like do, i have nothing to hide. >> barr making the announcement in a letter to congressional leaders friday, writing everyone will soon be able to read it. barr says he'll have the report ready to be released by mid-april if not sooner, adding that it's nearly 400 pages long. barr says he's been working on the public version with robert mueller, and he says it will contain redactions that are required.
5:04 am
that means stripping out sensitive material, such as grand jury evidence and information that could affect ongoing investigations. but that's still not enough for the democrats in congress who are fighting to see the whole thing. >> show us the report, and we can draw our own conclusions. >> president trump seemingly reversing his stance on twitter late friday while taking a swipe at democrats. the problem is no matter what we give them, it will never be enough, so maybe we should just take our victory and say no, we've got a country to run. in his letter barr also responds to complaints about the four-page memo he released sunday about mueller's findings. >> he told me it was a very substantial report, one that in my judgment, a four-page summary cannot begin to do justice to. >> it was condescending, it was arrogant, and it wasn't the right thing to do. >> barr says the memo wasn't intended to be an exhaustive
5:05 am
recounseleding of the special counsel's investigation or report. instead he said it serves as a summary of its principal conclusions, that is, its bottom line, as both sides battle over robert mueller's report. the attorney general says he'll testify before congress in may after the report is made public, and barr says he does not plan to let the white house review it ahead of the public release. peter, kristen? >> geoff bennett at the white house this morning. jeff, thanks. the president is turning back to an issue that helped get him to the white house, immigration. he's now talking tough talk with mexico again, threatening to shut down the border completely as his homeland security treasurer turns up the pressure. kelley o'donnell is traveling with the president. she's live in west palm beach near his estate. good morning, kelly. >> reporter: good morning, kristen. no issue animates the president and his political base quite like immigration and he's putting the border front and
5:06 am
center again. he is willing, he says, to cut off commerce, daily trade, and travel across the border, trying to get mexico to do more to stop the illegal flow of immigrants into the u.s. ratcheting up a threat aimed at mexico. >> there's a very good likelihood that i'll be closing the border next week, and that will be just fine with me. >> reporter: president trump has issued that kind of warning before, but now ramping up the pressure from a gilded setting at mar-a-lago to what was billed as an infrastructure repairs tour at florida's lake okeechobee where the president said he will penalize mexico economically for failing to curb the flow of migrants. >> we'll keep it closed for a long time. i'm not playing games. >> reporter: and on the campaign trail. >> another two caravans are pulling up. mexico could stop them, so easy. >> reporter: where the president
5:07 am
lashed out over asylum claims. >> i am very afraid for my life. >> reporter: mocking some migrants at the southern border. >> it's a big fat con job, folks. it's a big fat con job. >> reporter: they're making new claims about immigration crisis. kirstjien nielsen released a statement saying the system is in freefall. she also wrote to congress asking for authority to deport unaccompanied migrant children from central america more quickly, citing in her statement the danger posed to children by the journey to u.s. borders and the realities of a system reaching peak capacity. friday house speaker nancy pelosi shot down nielsen's request, writing democrats reject any effort to let administration deport little children, and we reject all anti-immigrant and anti-family
5:08 am
attacks from this president. when the president was talking to reporters, he mischaracterized the death of a 7-year-old girl from guatemala, the circumstances around that, the president saying it was dehydration and that her father had accepted responsibility for not giving her water. she died in december, but friday medical records were released showing she had a bacterial infection that led to the shutdown of her organs and that she was checked upon apprehension by u.s. officials, and they found nothing medically wrong, part of the complicated human drama that's unfolding. kristen, peter. >> indeed, kelly, thank you. jake, good morning. >> good morning. >> to start with the robert mueller report, i was in grand rapids, michigan, when the rally wrapped up. the president said, clearly, the russian hoax is dead. he said, release the report. last night he appeared to change his tune a little bit, perhaps there being details in there
5:09 am
that are still damaging. are there details that are damaging? >> absolutely, peter. when this report comes out, whether it includes implicated detail or not, it will have the inner workings of his campaign, the white house, rehashing how he fired the fbi director, all things of that nature, absolutely. but the president at the moment is living in a good political moment in which newspapers are carrying headlines that he did not collude with russia, and that's what mueller found. so that tune will change in about a week or so. >> that's right. the democrats, though, are digging in. they say it's not good enough. they set the deadline for this coming week. that's when they want to see the mueller report, and they want to see it unredacted, jake. how far are democrats willing to go here? >> they don't have many options. they could s&p the report, which is an unlikely report. it's made for national security interests and grand jury information and democrats do run the risk of looking overzealous
5:10 am
and asking too much. if they get a 400-page report, there are going to be redactions. that's something they can't control. >> the president repeated a threat. he's done this before. he said he's going to shut down the entire southern border. what's different this time is he gave a time line next week. the implications are potentially huge, not the least of which is the impact on the economy. how serious is this threat? >> that's right, peter. it is serious. it would impact consumer goods, which a lot come from mexico, number one. number two, you have to ask what his end game is. what does the president plan to achieve? does he think it's going to be a change by mention colorado or bring about comprehensive immigration reform? it will have an impact on people's wallets and checkbooks. that's something the president will have to contend with. >> president trump seemed to step on his own victory lap by reviving the issue of health
5:11 am
care. he wants republicans to be the party of health care, but giving no time line when they might actually have a plan. is this a strategy that could backfire as the president is gearing up for this tough re-election battle? >> i'm not sure what the strategy will be. many think it cost them control of the house of representatives. all week i was speaking to republicans on capitol hill who were practically begging the president not to go down this road, politically pairo loui-- louis what they're trying to do. >> thank you so much. now the growing crisis in venezuela. the white house is warning russia and other countries from sending any military troops or equipment there. red cross is now sending aid. good morning, gabe. >> reporter: kristen, good morning. today, dueling rallies are scheduled highlights a deep

5:57 am
high also climb into the upper 60s, low 70s which will make for a fantastic weekend. talk about sunshine. this sunshine is expected to stick around not just for today but also through tomorrow. we'll only get warmer into tomorrow. tomorrow we may see mid 70s to upper 70s on the map. a dry weekend ahead. for the work week, i'm tracking our next round of possible showers over the next seven days. that's going to mean rain in the bay area. i'll break that down coming up at 7:00 a.m. >> all right. we'll see you at 7:00. thanks. we want to take you to the presidential campaign trail in the bay area. california state senator kamala harris is in town raising money for her run for president. we were not allowed inside last night's eve night's event, but a crowd of about 100 people paid a minimum of $500 each to hear her speak for a half hour.
5:58 am
the senator is one of 16 candidates running for the democratic nomination for the 2020 election. supporters say she stas out because of her experience as an attorney general and now state senator. they say she is focused on improving peoples lives. >> she's speaking truth to power. that's what we need to hear in the country right now. simple truth on education, healthcare. >> i think that people want rite now in our country leaders who will people truth no matter how difficult it is to hear, have some vision of the future. i can provide that. >> senator harris says she's talking to people across the country who share the same concerns. she's hoping policies like medicare for all and raises for teachers will unite those supporters and help her rise above the crowded field of candidates. harris has another fund-raiser in atherton later this morning. now to a scary situation on board a flight headed to san francisco. a united airlines flight taking off from baltimore bound
5:59 am
for sfo yesterday morning when passengers noticed a fuel smell. the flight was diverted to dulles airport where seven people were taken to the hospital complaining of nausea and trouble breathing. they were evaluated. we're told everyone is okay. passengers were rebooked on other flights. it's not clear what caused the smell, but united says the plane needs work on the ventilation system. the airline also offered to pay the hospital bills. coming up on "today in the bay," caught on camera. an unusual theft has police baffled. we'll show you what this man stole and how he even got permission to go into the house. we will have that story and your top stories and weather coming up at 7:00.
6:00 am
good morning. no worries. president trump sounding confident hours after his attorney general said he is set to release a version of the mueller report within a few weeks. >> if that's what he'd like to do, i have nothing to hide. >> but democrats aren't happy, demanding to see the full report and they want it by early next week. the president shifting focus. >> there is a very good likelihood i will be closing the border next week. and that will be just fine with me. >> setting his sites on the border. >> zero reservations, george clooney calling for a boycott on hotels where new laws make

6:03 am
finding. the attorney general is attempting to reassure those lawmakers and the public that the process for handling the mueller report will be above board and fair. but for democrats it is a promise that falls short. president trump praising attorney general william barr's decision to release the mueller report. >> we'll have great confidence in the attorney general. and if that's what he'd like to do, i have nothing to hide. >> reporter: barr making the announcement friday, writing everyone will soon be able to read it. barr says he will have the report ready to be released by mid-april, the not sooner, adding that it's nearly 400 pages long. barr has been working on the public version with robert mueller and he says it will contain redactions that are required. that means stripping out sensitive material such as grand jury evidence and conversation that could affect ongoing investigations.
6:04 am
but that's still not enough for the democrats in congress who are fighting to see the whole thing. >> show us the report, and we can draw our own conclusions. >> reporter: president trump seemingly reversing his stance on twitter late friday while taking a swipe at democrats. the problem is no matter what we give them, it will never be enough. so maybe we should just take our victory and say no, we've got a country to run. in his letter, barr also responds to complaints about the four-page memo he released sunday about mueller's findings. >> he told me it was a very substantial report, one that in my judgment a four page summary cannot begin to do justice to. >> it was condescending, it wasn't the right thing to do. >> reporter: barr says the memo wasn't intended to be an exhausting recounting of the special council's investigation or report. instead, he says it serves as a summary of its principal conclusions, that is, it's
6:05 am
bottom line as both sides battle over robert mueller's report. now, the attorney general says he will testify before congress in may after the report is made public. and barr says he does not plan to let the white house review it ahead of the public release. >> jeff, thanks. and the president is now turning to an issue that helped get him to the white house, immigration. he's talking tough about mexico yet again, threatening to shut down the border completely as his homeland security threatens to close borders. good morning again, kelly. >> reporter: good morning. looking for levleverage, the president is making a giant threat that could have a ripple effect for businesses great and small and countless individuals. he is willing to cutoff trade and travel to get mexico to take

6:08 am
president gave wrong information. he said that little girl died in december because of dehydration and that her father had acknowledged not giving her water. but new records released friday show that she had a bacterial infection that led to the shutting down of her organs. she had been checked by medical personnel at the border and nothing was noticed at that time. the president giving bad information about a very serious situation. kristin, peter. >> thank you for that report. some other headlines this morning, a strong thunderstorm swept across colorado friday with one tornado touching down. the twister hid a storage facility for rvs, tipping over several of the trailers there, actually blowing some across the lot. there were no reports of injuries fortunately. and a bill that would recite the strictest abortion laws in the country is in the house.

little slower. yeah. right about there. >> right now, i have a ringing sound. that's it. >> that one here? >> yeah. >> it's the first time they are hearing these noises outside of their heads. >> one is relief. i'm hearing it. it exists. second, there is now a way for somebody independent of me to understand on a first person level what i'm experiencing. >> and they're sharing it with us. >> i'm particularly grateful for it. it does really allow you to understand that we never know what people are walking around with. and i want more importantly for people who experience it to know they're not alone. >> these tinnitus sufferers were brought together by an ear supplement to help those who suffer with it. >> there is no cure for it, but
6:36 am
a number of treatment options can help. dr. john torres is here with us. before we get to the questions, peter, this is personal for you. were you surprised to learn what rebecca has been hearing and experiencing? >> i know bec deals with this. she told me before. the sense is when she takes the implants out, it is silent for her. that is not the case. she has been dealing with this since age 19. she said at times it was a fog horn. like rice krispies. even when dealing with stress and this terrified her. a screaming woman was in her head. it was an auditory hallucination. >> from my days in the air force when i was a pilot and being around airplanes, i have tinnitus. it doesn't last all day long for me. it gets worse as time goes on. it is different sounds for different people. mine is a high pitch sound.
6:37 am
sometimes it is a lower pitch. other people say whispering. i can testify what happened. you saw it on people's faces. if you show somebody and listen to the sound and you think that's it. it makes it real. it makes a huge difference. >> is it prevented? >> it can be. you have to take care of your hearing when you're young. musicians have it because they are around loud noises. pilots and mechanics have it. it is the damage as you get older and older. >> you can't reverse it. at least i understand. how do you manage it? my sister, what was striking to me, said it is always there. environmental sounds overwhelm it. i can imagine in silence, that is still pretty discomforting? >> it is. there is no cure for it. you can manage it. essentially white noise machines. when you are in silence, it is the worst. you can get hearing aids. those put a different noise in
6:38 am
there. noise cancelling hearing aids. mask the device to override the noise. new technology is out to retrain your brain. so you just forget about the noise like a refrigerator running in your house. >> is it worse as you get older? >> yes. the challenge. if you have infection or sudden tinnitus or it comes on or dizziness with it. it could be something other than hearing damage. >> call your doctor at that point. >> thank you. >> i appreciate the good information. coming up next, after you spring clean your closets, what to do with all that extra stuff. make cash from it. we'll show you how. >> but first these messages. oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪ (announcer) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than seven and maintained it.

this morning we're talking about what to do after you cleaned out your home. instead of tossing out your old clothes and furniture, you can cash in. tt all right at your fingertips. erin is here to tell us about the best apps for selling your stuff. this is my favorite topic, spring cleaning. let's start off talking about clothes. you can actually make a profit by thread up. >> we're going to clean out your closet and make you some money. if you have never seen an app to tell your clothing before, this is the easiest place to start. they will send you a bag. you put your clothes inside. they will assess your clothing. th i bought this dress on thread
6:42 am
up. there are things like this that are in good condition and they will give you a price that you will know how much you will make ahead of it. >> that's great. and poshmark. what's the deal with this? >> if you are willing to put in a little extra work, it has a great option. there is a potential to make more money because you are setting the prices yourself. you have to take the pictures yourself. you do a listing, and the great thing is it's kind of like a community. it is like a social network itself so you can follow people with similar styles to you. you can see when they post clothing and use that to buy your clothing as well. >> any down sides to the fact it is harder to use? >> if you are cleaning out your closet and you don't know where to start, you have to take the pictures and set the prices. it will take a little bit longer to sell something, but other than that, it is a great place
6:43 am
to sell your clothing. >> and here we have declutter for electronics. >> similar to thread up, if you have never sold electronics on line, this is a great place to start. you are going to scan the bar code on your electronics. it will pop up with a price they will give you. you will know ahead of time if you will get money for it. a free shipping label to send back to them. the downside to this, it is not really a downside as much as a hiccup is they take care time to make sewure what you give them a good quality. so it does take a little bit to get your money. >> that's an important point because everyone has old tron electronics laying around. >> this is actually great for people who are buying those products because you know what you are going to get is good quality. >> one of my favorites, e dabay
6:44 am
>> e-bay has one of the largest community of buyers, so you have a lot of people looking at what you are going to sell. you have to take a picture, list the prices. and if you opt to do one of those bidding sort of an auction style, you do have to take the lowest bid. so you want to be careful you are not setting that minimum to a place you are not comfortable because you have to sell it for what you put. >> good put. one of the harder things to sell on line is furniture. it is bigger, cumbersome. >> at nifty, we're about making your home life easier. you don't want to ship furniture. you don't have to download a separate app. if you have a facebook app, you can participate. great way to shop with people in your local community and you might actually know someone that will pick up that couch for you. you don't have to lug it. >> yeah. i don't pick up couches. >> one downside, some people are
6:45 am
really protective about their identities online. so you can't do this anonymously. your name will be connected to whatever the posting is. >> important to keep in mind. and finally let go, pros and cons. >> this is another one that is so easy to sell furniture. take a picture of it. it uploads it and suggests a title, a price and the category for you. so if you have never sold something online, this also takes some of that guess work out. >> this would be the one for me. >> you don't have to have it gps located. but once you do decide to sell something, there is no way to buy something on this app. so you need to arrange money exchange and pickup on your own. you can't ship through this app. >> get to spring cleaning, everyone. coming up. peter, dylan and i will get

6:48 am
now for a little fun this morning in weekend kitchen. we are talking just deserts. we'll thrilled to have melissa with us here. she is joining us, and she will show each of us a favorite desert we have been wanting to tackle ourselves in the kitchen. >> so good to see you. i love you requested grass hopper pies because these are the cutest things, perfect to make for kiss, right. >> you have a ten year old. i have a five and three year old. this is something my mom did when we were kids. help us do it so we can do it at home. >> you have oreo crumbs. >> you can take them apart, put them in a zip lock, let your kids roll it. >> they will have fun banging it out. >> zip lock bag and a dish towel around the bag and no mess. take a little of this, put it in
6:49 am
the bottom of a muffin tin and just use the bottom of your measuring cup to press it down. >> nice. >> you finish them all. bake them for a few minutes. >> you just want to get them a little crisp. are you eating that already? >> i tried and i dropped it on the floor. i won't eat that one. >> they're so good. >> what do you put in it? >> ice cream. any flavor you like, but since it is grass hopper, we will use mint chocolate chip. a few drops will give it that pretty color. and then i'm going to start real fast. >> scoop it and just scoop it right in there. >> okay. i want to let my kids do their thing, too. >> nice scoop, perfect. >> you just smooth it out, freeze it. >> this is a warning for you there with kids. >> you can leave that out. and just a couple of more oreo
6:50 am
crumbs on top and that's it. >> beautiful. >> the fruit tart, i love it. >> this is the easiest fruit tart in the entire world. it is like a big short bread cookie. >> my husband's family makes this for christmas. >> it is so springy with all the fruit. flour, a little bit of salt, butter. for two seconds you want to get it crumbling like this. you don't have to roll this out. you dump it in and press. >> all you want to do is you want to build it up just so it looks like this. bake it for about 20 to 30 minutes depending at 350. >> you guys -- >> they're not even paying attention because they're stuffing their faces. >> this is such a great recipe. the best thing is the filling, any flavor jam you like. apricot or -- >> i will start with apricot.
6:51 am
i love that. that's beautiful. >> isn't that beautiful? you can also use a little bit of whipped cream if you didn't want to use jam. i like jam because it goes with the fruit. >> and it's nice and healthy. put the fruit on top of it. >> any fruit you like. throw the berries right on. >> this will not be as artistic as yours, but we get the idea. this is perfect. this is perfection. >> you don't have to cut them up or anything. >> all you do is trim the strawberries. we just did that in three seconds. even that looks pretty. >> that's a three second desert. that's what i need. >> you can finish it with powdered sugar just for contrast. >> feels healthier with the jam, too. >> right? >> did you eat that whole thing? good for you. >> i only ate half and i dropped part of it on the floor. we're going to do key lime pie. >> i love citrus, lemon merang. >> what we have here is it's
6:52 am
pretty easy to find bottled key lime juice, so we have that here. >> don't use lime juice. >> no. you could use regular lime juice, too. works just as well. key limes are really small little limes. pour that right in. and if you can't get them, use regular lime or key lime juice. that's just egg. and then all this is -- yeah, sweetened condensed milk, so you don't need to add sugar. and then the eggs make it a custard. i mean, really, beat it for maybe five minutes. very important for flavor. >> so the crust you can even buy a premade crust. >> this is a graham cracker crust or you can buy the crumbs. >> then do you bake it? >> bake it for ten minutes. and then whipped cream. can you swirl it like that. >> i'm going to try.
6:53 am
