cathedral issued a statement saying the order is as un-american as it is un-christian. the dean of the cathedral says the order will fracture families and penalize many innocent people. the fallout over the president's order is being compared to a historic day during the nixon administration. president trump decided to fire acting attorney general sal sally yates. it appears to be the most serious rebellion since the so-called saturday night massacre back in 1973 when both the attorney general and department attorney general resigned instead of following president nixon's orders to fire the watergate special prosecutor. what happens tonight after the president announces his pick for the high court? first, the senate
4:04 pm
committee will hold televised hearings and vote on whether to advance that nominee to the full senate. democrats say they are likely to filibuster that nominee, which means the republicans would need 60 senators to vote to end that filibuster. so they'd have to get some democrats on board or the domination could stall. unless, of course, republicans simply change the rules. if majority leader mitch mcconnell decides to go that route, he would need 50 votes to create the rule change. ironically it was the democrats who instituted this so-called nuclear option four years ago, that end filibusters for all presidential nominees with the notable exception of supreme court justices. changing the rules has consequences when you're not the majority party as democrats are

which prevents new products from enter the market. but the fda says it really wants a recall which would remove all of the products already on the market and also in your home. in a statement hyland tells news4 we are disappointed that the fda continues to use news releases and social media to unnecessarily frighten parents about teething tablets and gel and yet still lacks the data to support its position. to see what products are part of this warning, go right now to our nbc washington app and search teething products. >> you've covered so many recalls. how unusual is it for a company to push back that strongly against the fda? >> very, very -- a lot of companies do this. it is typical. they will push it. but again, these are not regulated. these are like the

4:49 pm
inside here. you see, the president's executive order on sanctuary cities threatens to defund part of the d.c. department environment's inspection program. the very program that would inspect the power plant they want to build inside. the permit for the generators had been approved and will be installed here at the trump hotel. but the funding for the inspectors comes from right across the street at the environmental protection agency. the question for district leaders is, if trump follows through on his threat to cut funding to d.c. agencies like the department of energy and environment, who will pay for the inspectors who have to monitor the very power plant across the street at the trump hotel? in the district, mark segraves, news4. between work and family, many of us know what it feels like to be burned out. and the same goes for people whose attention to your health could be a life and death situation. >> we're talking about doctors.
