scaramucci followed up on twitter saying he would refrain from using such colorful language. some in washington say scaramucci and preibus need to mend their relationship. >> reince is doing a fantastic job at the white house. and i believe he has the president's confidence. so if -- if -- if -- if those two gentlemen have differences, my advice would be to sit down and solve them. >> reporter: scaramucci vowed to fire anyone who is caught leaking information and says he and the president have a good idea who is responsible. now, the president must decide whether to sign a bill that slaps new sanctions on russia. it passed both houses and the senate today with veto-proof majorities. mr. trump opposes a provision that gives lawmakers the power to block him from rolling back those sanctions. >> reporter: the republicans are trying to pass a healthcare bail. the push has been on something called the "skinny repeal." it's basically a placeholder bill. if passed, it would allow senate and house negotiators to
6:36 pm
hammer out a final healthcare bill. republican senators want assurances that the house won't simply vote on the skinny bill as is and then send it to the president. >> i am convinced that we can move forward. but we have to have an assurance that it will go to a normal conference. right now, that is not the case. >> house speaker paul ryan has promised he will negotiate a final healthcare bill. but minutes ago we learned that's not enough for at least two gop senators putting the entire republican plan into doubt. the country's top immigration officer is threatening more enforcement activity in sanctuary cities. >> it appears sanctuary cities, that's where we'll send additional resources looking for you at home, employment, we are going to enforce the law. sanctuary cities, that's the advertising. we'll get to you a sanctuary city. >> isis set a priority of targeting criminal gangs like ms-13 including raids like one in santa cruz this year that

6:40 pm
run alongside the trails and in march, the city approved a plan to remove 272 trees such as this massive legacy oak. pg&e says it posts a safety hazard. but gina dawson with the group called save lafayette trees doubts that. she says the utility was out last week surveying which trees are unsafe. four months after they got the approval to cut them down. >> i believe pg&e's doing this for convenience for cost efficiency, for safety, they would be out here doing their surveys before they came to us with a list for trees to be removed. >> reporter: she suspects pg&e wants it clear tries so it can do aerial monitoring of its lines which is easier and cheaper. but she is really angry that the city agreed to it in exchange for half a million dollars in fees even though many of the trees are on private property. so the city is collecting fees for the removal of trees that
6:41 pm
actually belong to private individuals? >> yes. >> reporter: so a lawsuit has been filed against lafayette and pg&e to rescind the agreement. but today, the city manager made it sound like it's not a done deal after all. >> we'll be, um, in a settlement conference next week and i'm hoping we can work something out. >> reporter: so it hasn't been decided how many yet? >> yes, thanks. >> reporter: so for now, the residents don't actually know for sure which trees or how many will face pg&e's axe. and it doesn't look like the city is eager to shed light on that either. in lafayette, john ramos, kpix 5. >> late today pg&e sent us a statement saying that it is reviewing the lawsuit and adds, the community pipeline safety initiative is about keeping customers and workers safe. a celebrity church in the spotlight after justin bieber's wild ride with the paparazzi. why it's a spiritual magnet for
