6:30 pm
let's get it started to president obama move to president-elect trump transition. >> these are some of the talkers at 6:30, tweet us let us know what's on your mine using the #5at630. the rundown is not there. there it is, popped in. ask and you shall receive. now to the road to the white house, the presidential inaugural committee unveiled the schedule of events >> the big event kicks off
6:31 pm
morning, fox 5 tom fitzgerald has everything you need to know to participate in this history making day. >> reporter: the clock is ticking down. the 58th presidential inauguration at the capitol is 29 days away. today we got our first real look at exactly what this inauguration is going to look like. >> now, this all came by way of a surprise e-mail today from the 58th presidential inaugural committee the festivities will get underway thursday, january 19th. that's when the president-elect and the vice president elect pence are going to be weighing a wreath at arlington national cemetery. they will go to a welcome celebration concert at the linc couldn't memorial called make america great again. tickets will be required in special areas. there will be a general public viewing area that no tickets are required for. then the
6:32 pm
20th, 2017. that's when the inaugural ceremony will take place at the alcohol at noon followed by the inaugural parade down pennsylvania avenue. there will be ticketed areas for viewing. there are also nonticketed areas for the public to watch the parade as well. that night will be followed by the inaugural ball. which of course, will be ticketed events. then the festivities will wrap up saturday, january 21, 2017, that will be a national prayer service at the washington national cathedral in northwest. a big question is who is going to perform at that lincoln financial field consent. there have been widespread reports that the trump inaugural committee has had trouble lining up a list. at the u.s. capitol tom fitzgerald fox 5 local news. you mentioned the talent yesterday, andrea bocelli said he was out. he was supposed to talk to him personly
6:33 pm
they're having trouble getting people to perform. >> it's going to be interesting to see who they're able to fill the spots with. we'll keep up. controversy over pay to play an access to the president-elect. the trump transition team says reports that donald trump's too eldest sons were offering access to their dad during inauguration weekend in exchange for about $1 million in donations to conservation charleston isn't true. it was an idea the charity's foundation was considering. even if the trumps were never involved it raised all sorts of ethics questions about the ravlt president-elect's family in the administration. joining to his talk about this is gop strategist jack berk man and gary nordlinger. a professor at georgia washington university. >> i would like to know what your thoughts are the fact the trumps say that the accusations
6:34 pm
>> it's not a concern since they didn't do it. i hate to put it this way, presidents have been selling access for political fund-raising for several decades if not longer. and going forward will having to careful about the smell test. remember the incredible controversy about the clinton foundation donors trying to get access to hillary clinton when she was secretary of state. >> absolutely. jack, let me bring you into this one, last week it was coffee with ivanka. does this raise concerns do you go with the whole thing? this is just politics but isn't it little hypocritical, he went after hillary clinton for doing the same thing during the campaign. >> gary is correct. presidents have been selling access since 1789 when george washington first took the oath, it's gone on 240 years, never stopped, probably never will stop. the reality is the country elected a businessman, trump didn't divest himself of all this overnight. now, his kids have gone too far
6:35 pm
a cup of coffee with ivanka. they know better than to do that. that's a mistake. that has to stop. the broader issue is, you know, his sons, the reality is i don't think they're smart enough to run the empire. the daughter is but she's already in the administration. all three of them are probably tainted. if i'm advising the president, i will tell him, look, you've got to bring in independent directors you've got to bring in independent ceos, people with no political ties to run this, the family has to be pushed away. you can have them in the administration if you want to. but not in the business. >> answer me this. a lot of people have been saying perhaps even if they're not in the administration or can't be in the administration, they can still be political advisors just not on the books. maybe perhaps some of these anti-nepotism laws should be changed to deal with a very different scenario we're dealing with. >> remember one thing. jack kennedy had bobbie kennedy as his
6:36 pm
nobody cared then, look at some of the things that bill clinton did with friend and people close to him. this is hardly novel. there's nothing wrong legally or ethically with his children serving in the administration or being political advisors. i think where it gets complicated is if they're on the business side. that's where the problems political, legal, perceptual result. >> gary, do you want to weigh in on this? right now there's questions being raised about the trump hotel in dc. if the president isn't off the lease or off the ownership by inauguration, he could be breaking the law >> there are so many questions we're looking at right now. i think starting with the children. if they're not on the payroll, i don't think the nepotism law applies. and it's not look either of these children need government salaries. presidents relied on friends and families for advice going back the history of presidency >> how do you draw that wall? how do you keep that
6:37 pm
you guarantee, you know, just for transparency sake, how do you guarantee that wall between the presidential, oval office and trump businesses >> that's where i think jack brought up the critical point and that is making sure the business dealings are totally separate from the trump family. one thing to remember, shawn, with some of those laws, gary and i have a lot of agreement on this, when you look at some of these laws, like with the trump hotel. things become criminal violation only if it's quid pro quo. yes, there could be a foreign diplomat there but it's just like any other kind of bribe or racketeering, i don't think that's going to be influencing donald trump's decision. if you say if the government of ukraine says, well, we're only going to have 100 people stay at your hotel if you do ex-it becomes a crime. a president is not committing a crime because he own as hotel. that's the legal. but the perceptual is the perceptual is he just needs to distance himself from the businesses, and that's why i think you can't
6:38 pm
sell, you need independent people running them. >> thank you both jack berk man and gary nordlink er. merry christmas. >> merry christmas, happy new year and happy hanukkah. donald trump met with beauing ceo dennis muhlenburg today, weeks after he publicly slammed the company for the high cost of building two new air force one planes, he said he will build the planes for less than the original$4 billion price tag. he also met the lock head-to-head martin. >> you may recall this one little tweet we saw stocks go down. >> one little tweet can do a lot of damage >> donald trump tweets a lot. costs a lot of money. there's a lot of weight to them making headlines, president obama is using his final days in office to shore up his
6:39 pm
he invoke add provision in a 1953 law to ban new offshore drilling rights in the u.s. arctic and parts of the atlantic ocean indefinitely. there is no provision in the law that allows the incoming administration to reverse it. critics argued it would cause american businesses to fall behind, environmental activists are applauding the movement >> there's a lot of controversy of that. this is the exact opposite of what the trump administration would want now it remains to be seen whether they can actually reverse it >> let's check in with sue palka and get the latest on the weather. not too bad for the first day of winter >> i think mother nature took it easy on us, we were about 11 degrees warmer than we were yesterday. and another bonus is, tonight not going to be quite as cold as last night and night before was when we had temperatures dropping into the teens. it will still be chilly. we're going to go see temperatures ranging from upper
6:40 pm
not quite at cold but chilly, and what about thursday? well, looks like we'll get a little bit more sunshine out of the deal despite the fact that a frontal boundary is going cross us in the afternoon and that will pick up the breezes. if you don't like breezes, take an extra layer along, it won't be that cold of day, 38 at 8:00 in the morning, 46 by noon, we should be able to get up and over 50 here in the district. but again, with some breezes out of the northwest at 20, 25 miles an hour tomorrow afternoon. it's a frontal boundary swings on through without any moisture, you'll definitely feel that. but all in all, at pretty good trend as we look at the run-up to hanukkah and chistmas really looking nice and pretty settled as well. sarah and shawn, that's a look at your forecast. >> i like the sound of that. thank you, sue. still to come celebrating the inauguration in style. >> super style, ronica cleary is live at the ritz carlton in downtown dc with a look at what you might call ultimate luxury. ronica? >> reporter:
