investigation into the fbi )s behavior. i )m laura garcia. and i )m marcus washington. of an investigation into the fbi's behavior. i'm laura garcia. >> and i'm marcus washington. scott mcgrew has had only a few moments to look it over but we wanted to get as much details as possible to you. scott, what did you find out? >> good morning. only the broad details, marcus. it's the inspector general's report in the behavior of the fbi as it investigated hillary clinton. the fbi has been criticized by both democrats and republicans for its action. you will remember very late into the campaign, july 2016, then director james comey shocked the world with news the fbi was once again looking into clinton's actions, which angered democrats. and then a few days later said
11:01 am
it had done nothing wrong -- or she had done nothing wrong, which angered republicans. hillary clinton says that last minute accusation cost her the election. that's debatable, but no question she lost support. a justice department inspectors general's report released just a few minutes ago, not the investigation into clinton but rather the investigation into the investigation. it says james comey did wrong, he deviated from proper superior, he didn't check with superiors before announcing the fbi was reopened the case. he should never have talked about it publicly. the report says comey caused people to question the fairness of the fbi that says comey was not politically motivated. he wasn't choosing sides. it also took a look at two fbi agents who exchanged text messages that were critical of donald trump. it concludes the text messages including one that says they will stop trump were not politically motivated. this is not what the president was looking for.
11:02 am
this comes short of recommending any action. you know, we honestly thought this would be the biggest news of the morning but the trump news is coming hard and fast. the new york attorney general has accused of president and his children of fraud. in their management of the trump foundation. persistently illegal conduct she says, including diverting money from the charity to the campaign. these are civil charges, no the criminal charges, the president says he will fight them in court, won't settle. he said that about trump university and ended up settling, but it has been a heck of a morning for the president. >> and his birthday as that. >> his birthday as well. well, it is a name you will be hearing a lot of, london breed and she is taking a victory lap at this minute. a day after claiming victory as san francisco's first female african-american mayor breed is speaking about his accomplishments in front of a familiar crowd. nbc bay area's pete suratos joins us live from rosa parks elementary school in san francisco. when you think of former education this is where it all started for london.
11:03 am
>> good morning, marcus. that's right. london breed saying that she attended rosa parks elementary where we're standing, that's where she delivered what i would characterize as a rousing speech 24 hours after declaring victory as the mayor of san francisco saying she only lived a block away from this school. she understands the importance of his role as the first female african-american mayor in san francisco, saying that she is the exception not the norm and she's hoping to change that narrative with her election to this prominent role. we will show you some of the video from not so long ago when she wrapped up that speech and really you can call this a full circle moment for the san francisco native. she was born and raised in public housing in the western addition area of the city going on to attend galileo high, then learning an undergraduate degree from u.c. davis, then coming getting her master's degree as usf. her rise in san francisco politics began with a director role, executive director role with the african-american art and culture complex in the area
11:04 am
she grew up in the western addition to her most recent role as the president of the board of supervisors in san francisco. now, if you guys recall she briefly held the role of interim mayor following the unexpected death of mayor ed lee before the board of supervisors voted to replace her with then board member and current mayor mark farrell. but now breed can say she is the mayor at least until the next election when they vote again in november of 2019. she had this to say about her role in the city right now. >> and i never thought -- i never thought the opportunity to be mayor of the city and county of san francisco was ever possible. today -- today we show the next generation of young people, many of them sitting in this front row, we show the next generation
11:05 am
of young people that anything is possible. >> reporter: it took eight days of counting votes following election day for breed to officially declare victory after narrowly defeating mark leno. there are still votes to be counted about the city's director of elections not certifying the election until the end of the month. breed will take office next month and she will serve as the mayor for the remainder of mayor ed lee's term which is early 2020. we're live in san francisco, pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> such an inspiring story for the students there. when london breed spoke we actually sent out a push alert through our nbc bay area app, this is a perfect time for you to download that app and we will keep you informed about all the news that matters to you. and just in, it's a story which probably shocked you, the san francisco woman is accused of killing her roommate and putting her body parts in storage container face add judge

11:18 am
for whatever reason they are not willing to change that. you have to disclose if you're buying a house that there could be will ed in there. why is it okay that we can educate people that there is no lead in the walls but we can have it in our lipstick. >> kourtney kardashian is one of the big names forcing companies to take lead out of their products. experts say research your products and find safer alternatives. new video of great america's brand-new roller coaster, it is a one of a kind here on the west coast. naturally our own bob redell investigate investigated. >> yeah, one of the first ones to test it out, looked like he enjoyed it, giving it a thumbs up. he said it turned him into a screaming idiot, those are his words. it's called trail blazer, it has a 90 degree drop from 100 feet
11:19 am
up. bob thinks there might have been another roll but it was hard to tell. the cars right on a single rail, see, he is not sitting next to anybody, you are single file without anyone next to you. >> because you have that low center of gravitiy and you're low against the rail it allows us to have the riders experience more dynamic turns and twists and barrel rolls that you would not be able to do with a higher profile train. so that's where you really feel the incredible forces. you look at it, you think, wow, when you ride it really takes your breath away. >> i thought the first drop was going to be the craziest part and i was right. going down that drop and through that tunnel it looks like you're going to get hit by that and you immediately go back up the hill. it's really exciting. >> bottom line, you can't hold anybody's hand. great america invited the group american coaster enthusiasts to try out the rail blazer this morning. one member ranked this ride his top ten out of 100 in the

11:32 am
discussing that shooting. ederal investigars are looking into a possible hate crime in solano county. a large cross behind the alter at the union baptist church in rio vista was set on fire. agents arrested this woman, 23-year-old danielle ricafrente. she faces charges including burglary, arson of a church and hate crimes. our next story sounds like a script out of a courtroom tv show. investigators say a san francisco man on trial for robbery tried to tamper with the jury. investigators say romel navies looked up two jurors online and went to their homes to talk to them. here is what the da says. >> he went there, there was nobody answering at the door because the only person inside was the juror's teenage daughter who was in the shower. he went around to the side of the house and was peeking in the window when she suddenly saw him. >> the da said he went to another juror's house that

11:34 am
korean officer, but when you watch the full video which we're showing you right here you can see it was more of a mix-up. first the president tried to shake the hand of the officer, but the officer did a salute out of respect. only then does president trump salute a natural response there. so maybe not proper etiquette, but definitely nothing sinister. and a developing story for you, the white house is closely watching what happens with president trump's former personal attorney michael cohen. now, the big question is could cohen be ready to flip on his former boss? here is nbc's kristen welker. this morning with speculation mounting that michael cohen could cooperate with federal prosecutors the president's attorney rudy giuliani is trying to turn down the heat telling nbc news i have no information suggesting cohen is going to flip and there's nothing involving the president even if he did. therefore, i'm not concerned. and on laura ingraham overnight.
11:35 am
>> the president did nothing wrong. we're comfortable if he cooperates. there's nothing he can cooperate about with regard to president trump. >> reporter: still buzz began to build after revelations cohen is looking to split with his current legal team. people familiar with the matter tell nbc news that cohen who has not been charged with a crime has not even spoken with prosecutors. a necessary step in any plea agreement. investigators are still pouring over documents they seized from cohen's office and residences in that dramatic fbi raid two months ago. one focus that $130,000 hush money payment cohen admits making to porn star storm ranger just before the 2016 election. daniels said she had a sexual encounter with mr. trump in 2006 which the white house denies. daniel's lawyer michael avenatti weighing in overnight. >> when the music stops he is not going to be left with a chair and this is a very, very dangerous situation for the president. >> the president rushed to cohen's defense following the april raid, lashing out at the
11:36 am
fbi at the time. >> we just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, a good man, and it's a disgraceful situation, it's a total witch-hunt. >> reporter: later dismissing speculation cohen would flip on him, tweeting, most people will flip if the government let's them out of trouble. sorry, i don't see michael doing that. and just before the president took office cohen declaring -- >> and i will do anything to protect mr. trump. >> reporter: meanwhile, there's evidence president trump's frequent attacks on the russia inquiry are taking a toll. a new poll showing special counsel robert mueller's public image at its lowest level so far, 36% of all voters viewing mueller unfavorably including 53% of republicans. >> at least one washington capitals player will no the be visiting the white house before the team even won the stanley cup da vap day smith-pelly told canadian media he would turn

11:39 am
diminishing and the fish are dying. >> researchers do not know why the groundwater recedes every season. the napa quake killed one person and caused half a billion dollars in damages. if you get on at the north concord bart station you know there is a major expansion going on in that area surrounding the station. happening today bart leaders will get an update on that progress. we have artist renderings to show you some of the development going on there. in all about two dozen projects are finished or still in the works for the north concord martinez area. happening today, you could get a glimpse of the electric buses in san francisco. transportation leaders will roll out the 43 foot battery powered bus at city hall this morning. this is video of the bus and it is to highlight a new study which shows benefits of the bus buses. muni conveniently committed to transition their full fleet to zero emission buses. we will check the forecast with meteorologist kari hall. >> and the cooling starts today,

i'm april kennedy and i'm an arborist with pg&e in the sierras. since the onset of the drought, more than 129 million trees have died in california. pg&e prunes and removes over a million trees every year to ensure that hazardous trees can't impact power lines. and since the onset of the drought we've doubled our efforts. i grew up in the forests out in this area and honestly it's heartbreaking to see all these trees dying. what guides me is ensuring that the public is going to be safer and that these forests can be sustained and enjoyed by the community in the future.
