5:05 am
up. but right now, we want to send it on over to jaclyn dunn. >> good morning. happy tuesday. right now, we are tracking speeds in the green for drivers heading along interstate 80 the eastshore freeway making your way through berkeley on over towards the maze. no delays as you head on into san francisco. looking pretty good. we are tracking a "sig alert" and this means two lanes shut down along westbound 205 as you head through tracy. anyone traveling out of stockton or modesto encouraged to use highway 4 or 132. you do not want to use westbound 205 traffic backed up on to 120 in manteca. 580 starting to see a few brake lights but we are still in the green 25 minutes from 205 to 680. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. developing news now. [ no microphone ] [ pause ] we have some developing news now in germany. police on the scene of a shooting at a subway station in
5:06 am
munich. authorities say at least one person was shot. no information about the person's condition or identity. and police are adding extra security around the station as they look for the suspect. investigators do not believe it's a terrorist attack. it's unclear if the victim knew the suspect. a big day on capitol hill. attorney general jeff sessions will face questions from the senate intelligence committee about his contact with russian officials during the 2016 presidential election. the committee is expected to ask him about his involvement in the firing of former fbi director james comey. sessions has recused himself from all ongoing investigations into russia. comey has hinted there might be somebody more to his recusal. >> we also were aware of facts that i can't discuss in an open setting. >> meanwhile, a friend of the president said he is considering firing robert mueller, who is leading the investigation into alleged russian interference in the 2016 election. a senior white house adviser didn't deny the claim but says the friend did not speak to the
5:07 am
president. we'll have live coverage of sessions' testimony here on kpix 5 starting at 11:30 this morning. sessions' testimony isn't the only big political meeting in the mix. there's a high stakes election coming up in the south. san francisco representative nancy pelosi is appearing in a surprising tv ad for one of the campaigns. for more insight we turn to our washington insider marc sandalow. how does pelosi figure in the special election in georgia? >> reporter: hello to both of you [ in spanish ]. it's not surprising to see nancy pelosi in public commercials. she makes many appearances to try to brand democrats as big liberals. what's surprise something that this ad is -- is in spanish. i think we have a clip of the beginning of it here. [ in spanish ]
5:08 am
>> all right. you don't need to speak spanish to understand what they are doing here is tying the democrats bob ossoff to [ indiscernible ] latinos are reliable democrats but this district north of georgia is so close that republicans need every vote they can get. this is a district that's been held for 30 years by republicans. if this were to go democratic, the election one week from today, there's a lot of people thinking this town in the capitol building behind me here there are a lot of republicans who are going to be nervous about the trump presidency. >> all right. sounds like they are pouring some money into that campaign. let's talk about jeff sessions testimony before congress today. it starts at 11:30 our time. all eyes again on capitol hill. [ chuckling ] >> reporter: so by the way that
5:09 am
congressional race is the most expensive in american history. yes, they are putting money into it. so sessions is likely not to be as exciting as james comey was only because sessions is still the attorney general and he is under investigation and he may well take the fifth and not answer an awful lot of questions. the big questions for him are, first of all, why did he not tell senators when he was being confirmed that he had met with russians after the election, nothing illegal about that. but he didn't say he did. he said he didn't. was he lying? did he forget? the other question what you hinted at earlier that james comey points out that jeff sessions was supposedly involved with his firing of the president. the president says he fired comey because of the russia investigation. but sessions has recused himself. he said he would stay out of all russian investigations. what was he doing in the comey firing if he actually had recused himself? he will be asked those questions no doubt. i'm not sure he is going to
5:10 am
answer them. >> and marc, let's talk about president trump's cabinet meeting yesterday. it was unusual. >> reporter: so either it is a unique joy and pleasure to work for this president. [ laughter ] >> or he demands adulation publicly like somebody we have never seen before. this -- they went around the room this cabinet meeting the first one he held with reporters in the room starting with reince priebus his chief of staff saying we thank you for the opportunity and blessing to serve in your presence. then they went around rick perry in energy and purdue at agriculture, each of them praising our president for being a remarkable person for them to work for. now one has seen anything like that. it reminded some of what you might expect from, say, a leader in north korea, kim jong- un. um, which by the way is where dennis rodman is heading today to try to, um, do some international negotiations.
5:11 am
[ chuckling ] >> you notice the quick little transition there to basketball. i couldn't help myself. here's the political angle on last night's victory. the warriors had a great time in the white house meeting president obama being honored last year. the whole team was there. >> mm-hm. >> will they do the same with our president this year? >> that is going to be very interesting. >> yeah. good point to bring up, mark, like always, we love talking to you! thanks so much. well, the jury for bill cosby's sexual assault trial will continue deliberations this morning. his lawyers presented their entire case yesterday before it went to the jury. they called just one witness to the stand a detective. he testified for six minutes. last week, his accuser testified that cosby gave her pills that left her half conscious while he assaulted her. cosby's lawyers say while he had been unfaithful to his wife, he did not commit a crime. and former president of mexico vicente fox in town

5:16 am
promised to build the wall between the u.s. and mexico. and he said he wants mexico to pay for it. it's mr. trump's plan to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking. fox believes the wall is an empty process. >> they better understand that we are not paying for that wall, that u.s. taxes will pay for that wall and it is a wall that is a waste. it serves no purpose. >> the former mexican president and the trump administration will continue to clash over marijuana. according to a letter obtained by the "washington post" yesterday, attorney general jeff sessions wants to prosecute medical marijuana providers. vicente fox will be giving his keynote address here in downtown oakland at 10 a.m. and, of course, we expect him to weigh in on washington politics and on president trump. reporting live in oakland, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. 5:16 right now. let's check traffic with jaclyn. how's it looking? >> reporter: we're tracking a few slowdowns.

5:40 am
build a wall between the u.s. and mexico and make mexico pay for it. it's mr. trump's plan to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking and fox says it's an empey promise. >> i have said and i have -- an empty promise. >> i have said and i have told donald that mexico will never pay for that [ censored ] wall. and now i have to repeat it. >> reporter: the former mexican president and the trump administration will continue to clash over marijuana because according to a letter obtained by the "washington post" yesterday, attorney general jeff sessions wants to prosecute medical marijuana providers. now, fox will be here in downtown marriott to give the keynote address at 10 a.m. we'll be listening closely. we expect him to talk about washington politics and weigh in on president trump. reporting live in oakland, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. former nba star dennis rodman is back in north korea for the first time since donald trump became our president.
5:41 am
rodman has been criticized for palling around with kim jong- un. when asked if he had spoken to president trump he dodged the question. >> obviously he is pretty much, um, happy with the fact that i'm over here trying to accomplish something that we both need. >> what are you trying to accomplish, sir? >> just want to open the door, open the door, that's it. >> when asked if he would talk about the detained americans, rodman said his main purpose for the trip was to bring sports to the north korea. last week, as many americans were glued to james comey' testimony before congress, a financial regulatory measure dropped below the radar that will significantly impact your life. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to break it down. jill, good morning. so, the house passed the financial choice act. what is it and why should we care? >> reporter: well, it's a bill that would gut the dodd-frank financial reform legislation of 2010. of in its current form, the
5:42 am
