the president saying, he was merely standing up for himself. >> the president has been mercilessly attacked on personal account by members on that program and i think he has been very clear that when he gets attacked, he is going to hit back. >> meanwhile, it was a busy day in washington yesterday. president trump announced a number of initiatives that will boost the u.s. energy dominance. the south korean president and his wife are visiting the white house and two bills were passed. some republican leaders including representative paul ryan say that the president's comments on twitter are a distraction and aren't helping their party's legislative goals. thank you. president trump will meet with russian president vladimir putin for the first time next week. the white house confirmed it will happen during the g20 summit in germany. it will be the first time they meet since mr. trump took office. so far, no specific agenda has been announced. and it's not clear if the president will bring up the issue of alleged russian interference in the 2016 election. that comes as a new report
was published in the "wall street journal" about the hacking investigation. the journal claims that investigators have examined intelligence agency reports about how hackers wanted to steal hillary clinton's emails from her private email server and transfer them to michael flynn via an intermediary. special counsel robert mueller is leading the fbi investigation into whether any of president trump's associates colluded with russia to undermine clinton during the election. officials have confirmed that sarin nerve gas was used in a deadly attack last april. more than 90 people were killed many of them children. british foreign secretary boris johnson has urged international partners to unite and hold those responsible for the attack. the white house sent a warning to syria this week saying the military will pay a heavy price if it happens again. in germany, a landmark decision as lawmakers voted to legalize same-sex marriage. the bill gives homosexuals in germany the same rights as
heterosexuals. it will allow same-sex couples to marry and jointly adopt children. it's likely to pass through germany's upper house next week. once it's been officially signed into law, germany will enter the club of more than 20 countries where same-sex marriage is legal. tomorrow the silver state is going green. recreational marijuana will be officially become legal in nevada after 55% of voters approved a ballot measure in november. that means that dispensaries across the state will open to sell this weekend. the change is expected to draw tourists to las vegas. now, some lawmakers expect it to bring in as much as $150 million in just the first two years. until california begins its recreational marijuana dispensing next january, experts say nevada will likely have the nation's biggest market. as the golden state approaches that day the proposed senate bill is looking to ban state licensed businesses from offering t-shirts, hats and
other merchandise that advertise it is marijuana products. the legislation was introduced by senator ben allen to crack down on marijuana marketing that appeals to children. months after a sex scandal rocked the oakland police department a voter-approved oversight commission is now taking shape. today is the deadline for applications for those applying to serve on it. voters approved measure ll in november. it replaces the city's police oversight process with a civilian panel empowered to make police personnel decisions beyond what the mayor is allowed to do. that means the commission will have the authority to fire the police chief. there is growing concern in the east bay over response times by fire crews. a station in brentwood is closing for good tomorrow. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in knightsen with details. >> reporter: good morning. yeah. the fire station is right behind me. it's closing its doors today. this is right before the 4th of july weekend when we know there are a lot of fire hazards,
firefighters responding to numerous calls throughout the weekend. if there is an issue here in knightsen, that means these folks will have to wait for the next closest fire station to respond. the fire station is closing for a number of reasons including funding and staffing. the fire chief says the station continues to lose firefighters because there's little stability and the pay is lower compared to neighboring areas. voters said no to raising taxes three times. the station has already closed twice in the last five years. we spoke to firefighters in 2015 when the station was closing back then. >> i mean, minutes, seconds counsel. the cpr call or anything like that, you know, seconds count for us. >> reporter: east contra costa county fire protection district serves about 100,000 people and in 2010, the district had 8 stations with about 7 minutes response time. since then, it's gone to about
10 minutes. that pushes the response time back 3 minutes. now, the district will go to just three stations one in brentwood, one in oakley and one station in discovery bay and as you can see, right now, it looks like some of the firefighters are coming back from a call. so these firefighters will be distributed to the remaining three stations. they say no one is getting laid off. live in knightsen, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5. right now, crews are trying to contain a brush fire in san jose. chopper 5 was over the scene yesterday near i-680 and berryessa road. the fire was burning near homes but neighbors helped put it out. they were able to stop it before it did any damage. the fire is 75% contained. right now the alameda county sheriff's department is asking for your help in a homicide investigation. it just opened a public hotline to gather clues in a 2016 case. 37-year-old caesar placencia
was shot and killed outside his home last november. it happened near california and wilson avenues in castro valley. police say placencia's two children a 9-year-old and 12- year-old were inside at the time but were not injured. anyone with information about this drive by shooting is asked to call the sheriff's anonymous tip line. the time now 6:09. taking action. next what lawmakers in palo alto are doing to help protect renters from unjust evictions. >> and here we go! it's the holiday weekend. and the fog and the low clouds, i'll talk about the impact it will have on fireworks on the 4th of july. >> you're tracking a couple of new hot spots for drivers in san jose. i'll have the details coming up. >> bart is planning major closures this weekend. what you need to know to avoid the delays.

megacampus, google has bought moreland the tech giant could potentially occupy 6 to 8 million square feet of office space near the "s.a.p. center." san jose city council agreed to the project earlier this month. they called it a once in a century opportunity. they say google will pay fair market value with no special deals or incentives. the campus would generate millions of dollars in tax revenue. you may want to give yourself extra time if you are on bart in fruitvale this weekend. tomorrow and sunday there will be no service between fruitvale and lake merritt. that's because crews are working on the tracks. you can catch a free shuttle bus during the closure but riders should expect 20 to 40- minute delays especially for service to the oakland airport. the time now is 6:14. let's get a check of our traffic. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> we are tracking some bart delays right now already. so ten-minute delays, this is just recovering from an earlier problem.

uber today? well, now in our tech report, ro, uber still remains a global powerhouse despite many recently reported problems. the on demand private driver app just reached 5 billion rides worldwide. lyft is its only main competitor here in the u.s. but uber has no competition outside of america since no other ride hailing app has gone fully global. those rides that cross that 5 billion mark spanned 24 countries on six continents. and this morning we are getting our first look at google's self-driving semi truck. google's self-driving car division "waymo" announced this month that it was getting in on the big rig action. the blue truck is reportedly fully equipped with sensors. no word on when they will hit the road. and instagram just rolled out a new tool that is designed to help stop internet trolls. users now have the option labeled hide offensive comments

if president trump invites them. >> it's important to me that there's a respect for the office and for the institution. and that's why i would consider going. but i will be perfectly blunt and i know i'll anger people by saying this, i want the man who is sitting in the office to respect it. >> mr. kerr goes to the white house. that would be must-see tv. i'm dennis o'donnell. have a great weekend. the play of the day the a's taking on the astros down in houston last night. former ace slugger josh redick at the plate in the 1st inning take a look. >> he is being overshadowed. >> in the air to right field. all the way back is joyce to the wall, jumping -- and he makes the phenomenal home run- saving catch! >> yeah. i think that guy thought he had a home run! certainly a catch for the man who replaced redick in right field, matt joyce and that's about as good as it got for the a's who lost 6-1 but matt joyce

directions. and we are seeing the usual slowdowns as you head through pittsburg out of antioch. you will be tapping on those brakes right around 20 miles per hour. so you're looking at that travel time that continues to climb about 50 minutes now and we are tracking slowdowns along westbound 37. we do have reports of at least one lane blocked. that's right near lakeville highway. and there's only two lanes in that westbound direction so you can expect slowdowns to continue until they get that lane cleared just under 30 minutes from 80 to 101. southbound 101 dealing with the usual delays out of petaluma and we do have slowdowns approaching the richmond/san rafael bridge toll plaza from both richmond parkway as well as marina bay parkway so give yourself some extra time. it's continuing to be a very slow ride over at the bay bridge toll plaza. we have about 22 minutes out of the maze heading into downtown san francisco. we're starting out with a
live look outside at ocean beach where the sun just coming up this morning. you can see plenty of gray skies. in fact, i think all of us had our windshield wipers on driving to work this morning with drizzle. roberta is in the weather center tracking what we can expect this weekend. a little drizzle, huh? >> a lot of drizzle typical for this time of the year. did you see the marks in the sand there? we did have high tide at 5:06 this morning. on our way right now the water is receding to low tide at 11:16 a.m. this is our live weather camera and we're trying to look past the bay bridge towards the port of oakland. but visibility is obscured due to the blanket of clouds. we have delaatsfo one hour and 18 minutes because of the clouds. if you are in the vacaville area, you're saying what clouds? you have the sunshine, the clear visibility. you have temperatures of 53 at mount vaca. san francisco 52. oh, it's 53 in santa rosa with a blanket of stratus, as well. weather watcher time.
brisk winds, everybody talking about the afternoon winds up to 20 gusts up to 30. same today. right now 14 in the oakland area. 10 in vallejo. fairfield winds 23. linda was reporting 25-mile-per- hour winds. we do have the stratus widespread. but notice it's patchy around in fact my weather watcher robert sullivan in redwood city reports clear skies there. so the bottom line is, what you need to know on this last friday of the month of june is we still have "june gloom" similar to yesterday. seasonal temperatures. and it will be cloudy at the coast for the 4th of july. sunshine away from the beaches. high pressure in command. robust sea breeze. clouds back off at lunchtime today just hang tight to the san mateo coast all day long. then push back onshore.
travel in towards the east bay hills overnight then back off relatively earlier on saturday and on sunday. so temperatures pretty much status quo. statewide today for the big getaway travel day 95 in stocked, davis and sacramento. fresno triple digits. 90 at half dome. 80 in the greater lake tahoe area. 43 degrees now in truckee, low visibility due to fog. temperatures today here locally, 60s through 90s. safety push - to keep sharks away from people. enjoy your holiday weekend. in southern california, drones are part of the safety
