police activity. we have. and we have live pictures. bob redell continues to cover this at the scene. airway boulevard off of 580, you see the police activity. he was kept at a perimeter at a distance away just in case there was an issue as he was watching an arrest. and he'll bring more information as he gets that an confirmed with the police department but we do know confirmed by bob and chp is that the airway boulevard off-ramp is still closed off of eastbound 580 and slow approaching the scene. el charo is the exit for an alternate. if you pass by that, you have the closure at airway and then use north livermore to loop back past that crash. now past the police activity. now the commute westbound is just fine and not a distraction any more. once most of the flashing lights clear, you still see flashing light because of the closure there. the south bay and the peninsula and across the bay, all of the bridges do move well. the bay bridge toll plaza has slowing because of the back-up

5:18 am
to jared kushner in the white house and we know kushner uses what's app. kushner has a very close relationship with mbs. a disturbing number of american officials use what's app to conduct official government business. we know that because we've seen the texts. for instance during the impeachment inquiry we learned the whole ukrainian affair was planned and discussed by trump's team via what's app so bottom line we have a lot of people in the white house using an app that the richest man in the world who knows tech backwards and forwards got hacked through. >> concerning so i'll go ahead and hand that over and say -- worrisome. >> thank you very much. this one will affect a lot of people. new this morning, a new fight over a drug you most likely have in your medicine cabinet. california health leaders are debating whether to call acetaminophen a carcinogen. it is found in tylenol, robity

5:21 am
temperatures for the east bay, danville, pleasant on reaching 51 and then for san francisco reaching 57 on the embarcadero. north bay up to 60 degrees. so we'll pretty much be where we were yesterday as far as temperatures. but at least we won't have the threat of rain. now storm ranger showing that the rain has moved out and moved off toward the east. and if you are traveling toward the sierra, just a heads up there are still some rain and there will still be light snow flurries coming down. looking at what is coming our way for the rest of the week, more showers possible for the north bay late friday evening. but the rest of the bay area really won't see that. as we head into saturday, especially saturday night, we'll start to see rain returning more widespread rain moving in. and it will just be off and on throughout the day on sunday as the slow-moving system comes through. now it is going to bring us about a quarter to half an inch of rain. so a pretty good soaker,
5:22 am
especially after getting a nice amount of rain yesterday. but we will have a couple of days in between two dry out. we're looking at partly to mostly cloudy sky. and low 60s for the next couple of days. and then that rain returning late saturday night into sunday. mike, the roads once again still wet this morning. >> that is right, kari. and if it is a clear roadway, you tend to drive faster when you can. just note because there might be slick roadways and we have everybody operating close to the speed limit. we do have slowing of course in a couple of spots. one of those is eastbound 580 past el charo and airway and airway is closed from eastbound 580 and westbound is open but only about a hundred yards of roadway where they have the investigation. bob redell saw the arrest and getting more information. but you'll not use airway boulevard off of eastbound 580 and you exit at el charo.

scene as that story unfolds. >> plus what is next after a fiery first day of president trump's impeachment trial. the reason why the back and forth stretched all the way into early this morning. and up for debate. the push to make a bus-only lane on the bay bridge and how you can weigh in today. and a good morning to you. thank you for starting with "today in the bay," i'm marcus washington. >> and i'm laura garcia. let's look at the forecast. rain overnight, kari. now the rain is clearing out. as we check out the seven-day forecast, we'll still have lingering clouds today and clearing out as we head into the rest of the week. as we go into the weekend, there will be some more showers coming back and in san francisco we have some upper 50s today. we're staying in the 50s but we'll cool off slightly if that rain moves in. we'll focus just on weekend forecast in about seven minutes and talk about events going on. mike, your tracking a crash at the bay bridge. everything is off to the shoulder. i don't see a distraction or any disturbance to the flow of
5:32 am
traffic. which this is the flow. it is backed up because the metering lights are on. no problem out of the maze. wet roadways and we'll have slick conditions but no major problems on the freeways. a smooth drive developing as a slow drive develops for 101 through san jose and the note as we look at dublin, westbound and eastbound still have the flashing lights. the airway off-ramp is closed but the freeway is open. why that is closed we'll hand it back to you guys. >> thanks, mike. as he was just mentioning, there is still a lot of police activity in the east bay at one point it shut down major freeways. >> bob redell is live there in livermore where officers have now taken the man into custody but we don't know what he was doing, bob. >> reporter: it is not clear. and the livermore police department said a public information officer is on the way so we hope to get more information soon.
5:33 am
but behind me there is still a number of police officers here. we're at airway just off of 580 which is shut down at 580 about a hundred yards just before the livermore golf course and the airport. this is where that starbucks is just to give you a frame of reference if you're in the area and figuring out where we're at. there are still a large police presence but there is no longer a threat to public safety. look a tht video. this is the man who surrendered about 45 minutes ago. police in an armored car had surrounded him in his car. they issued commands to give up and had a drone hovering over his vehicle so they could see inside. you could see the man was limping with his hands up as he slowly made his way to the armored vehicle. and i could tell it you, he didn't surrender right away. this is going on for 30, 45 minutes. police checked his car to make sure no one else was inside and declared the scene safe. earlier i spoke to a firefighter who told me to leave the area at one of the blockades and said it
5:34 am
wasn't safe because there might be an armed suspect. that is information that has not yet been confirmed by police. this is the scene earlier in the 4:00 hour when chp shut down all lanes of eastbound 580 at areaway and then eventually pushed the shut back down to el charo to keep the public safe in case the police activity were to spill back out on to the freeway but that freeway is now reopened so if you are traveling to and from the livermore area, 580 is not affected by this. the only impact for the road closure is this section of airway which is right when you get off of 580 eastbound. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you for that report. breaking news to tell you about. surrounding a home in the east bay. here is a live look at the scene on o'toole way and o 'hatch drive. this all started with a large
5:35 am
police presence. we're working to find out if there is a barricaded suspect or if police are looking for someone. pete suratos will have a live report in the next half hour. 5:34 right now. opening arguments in the impeachment trial begin today after an extremely long day that actually didn't wrap up until early this morning. new rules were decided giving each side 24 hours over three days, not two, to present the case. republican senators shot down many of the amendments democrats proposed. senate majority leader marianne favro -- majority leader vowing to look this look like more like the clinton impeachment. most of the changes were handwritten. changes include accepting the house record of evidence and witnesses but democrats say they want more. >> a fair trial requires witnesses. in order to provide the truth, the whole truth and nothing but
5:36 am
the truth. >> this all supposedly started because of a whistle-blower. where is that whistle-blower? >> president trump is still in switzerland at the world economic forum under the new schedule trump's defense team will likely begin presenting the case on saturday. meantime, the trial is proving difficult for four democratic senators running for president. they're supposed to be in the iowa campaigning today because they're now jurors at the impeachment trial, all four will be on capitol hill today. new released video showing the moment an off-duty police officer shot and killed a man in a vallejo parking lot last november. video shows the -- what led up to an argument between eric reason and police sergeant this is virgil thomas who is pulling up to a spot in front of reason. reason returned to his van and pulled out a gun and after more arguing thomas fires. he fires more shots as reason runs off.
5:37 am
vallejo police released the video last night after completing an investigation. any charges would now be in the hands of solano county district attorney. and a south bay nonprofit is offering a $20,000 reward to track down the person who shot and killed a man early yesterday in palo alto in a parking lot. it happened about 3:00 a.m. on san antonio road. officers arrived to find an unidentified man in his 50s shot in the stomach. doctors could not save him. so far they have no motive or information about a possible suspect. well now to a big move when it comes to tenant rights in oakland. city leaders are behind a proposal to ban landlords from asking about criminal history. it would also ban tenants rejected due to criminal record. applying to public and private housing. if it it passed it would be the strictest of that type of law in california. city council passed the rule unanimously last night. a final vote is scheduled for february 4th.
5:38 am
berkeley city council is expected to vote on a similar measure next month. well a live look at the bay bridge and you could picture it when -- with a bus lane only. can you? well transit leaders can. and today may be the first step in making that a reality. today they plan to debate the idea and draft a resolution. b.a.r.t. leaders this week plan to debate the idea which has been done before in the early '60s but leaders soon pulled that plug. happening today, the b.a.r.t. general manager bob powers will be in contra costa to continue the listening tour he's been on. a live look this morning. powers is working to get feedback from riders and will be at the antioch b.a.r.t. station and later will stop at the pittsburg bay point station. 5:38 right now. our unit is taking a look at what happens on b.a.r.t. we spent months riding trains and recording what we saw. it is really interesting. watch the entire six-part series at your leisure on your desktop,
5:39 am all right. good morning, folks. you might still have to use your windshield wipers even though it is not raining. we still have moisture on the road kicking it up to make mist. i've seen a swipe or two needed from time to time. there is the golden gate bridge. a smooth drive across the bridge. a little fog may register from time to time in the north bay and a crash not a problem at bay bridge toll plaza. the metering lights have been on and the approach is full for all lanes. over here, we're looking at a smooth drive out aft altamont past and the bend where we narrowed a couple of lanes through vasco road and slowing out of brentwood. no roche toward 580 and the rest of the tri-valley which does move smoothly. we're following the police activity off of airway and aside from that a calm drive everywhere. good stuff. >> which is good.
5:40 am

witnesses. at least for the immediate future. good morning, democrats want to talk to the men at the center of the ukrainian affair, bolton, mulvaney and more and republicans don't want witnesses at all. that is the state of the impeachment trial after the completion of the first day which went late into the night with arguments overrules including those witnesses. >> the house calls john bolton. the house calls mick mulvaney. let's get this trial started, shall we. we are ready to present our case. we are ready to call our witnesses. the question is will you let us. >> to issue a subpoena to john michael mick mulvaney and i ask it be red. >> the democrats want mulvaney because he as mitted there was a quid pro quo on television twice before reracketing it. they want to hear from bolton because he had been disgusted by the whole deal calling it a drug deal. and they ask why they didn't

call bolton or mulvaney during the impeachment inquiry but the president has blocked them. zoe lofgren is essentially the prosecution and this is the third time if you count nixon. she was involved in drawing up the articles of impeachment in the '70s. the reason this video right here is historic, this is the first time a woman has acted as an impeachment manager in american history. chief justice john roberts actings as the judges and after the two sides started bickering, roberts told them to knock it off. >> remember they are addressing the world's greatest deliberative body and one reason it has earned that title because the members avoid speaking in a manner and using language that is not conducive to civil discourse. >> so the impeachment trial resumes today with opening statements from both sides. meanwhile the government chugs
