7:38 am
invariably experience of use causes certain modifications the need to take place. democrats should have been leading the charge to secure that, and they ought to be very active in it now. >> part of the problem though is the things that are needed and the democrats i have talked to, in their estimation, are things that require more money, subsidies, spending. either under obama where you had a republican dominated congress or now where you have a republican controlled government the idea that you are going to be able to make the changes even if you know what they are and you have a ten point plan, pass those and spend additional money. forget repeal. >> that's the dialogue you prefer to engage in. that's a substantive dialogue. it's the dialogue that will have a constituency that will be generated as a result of these new definitions of care. believe me, you are in much better shape and on far more solid ground to be speaking
7:39 am
from that perspective. the democrats should be leading the charge. there will be some republicans who will instantly embrace what they're talking about. >> i will say this. democrats are within their rights to say republicans, you have been talking about repeal and replace for seven or eight years. let's lay back and be quiet and see what you have and let those ideas that you do have or don't have after all the years of talking, we have had it. fine. now you have the stage. let's see what you can do and not present a competing agenda yet. >> republicans have only wanted to abolish healthcare provided in the administration of barack obama. all they wanted to do was kill the program completely. >> the president has the ability to kill the program. i understand he has been on social media talking about potential of repealing subsidies for insurers which is
7:40 am
a crucial part of obamacare. without that what would happen? >> it would be a total disaster. insurance companies are going month to month on the subsidies. president obama put them in place through executive fiat and that means that the president can take them away. what is happening is each month trump administration is announcing whether or not it will fund the subsequent month's subsidies. at the point when he says we are not doing that, the insurance market would be a complete disaster. it's like a nuclear option that so far no one has been calling for. now the president seems to think this is back on the table. >> very interesting. i am sure we have a lot more talk about this in the near future. >> we can do a whole show every week on healthcare. >> senator john mccain is returning to his home state of arizona where he will start radiation and chemo at the mayo clinic monday. he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer. he returned to washington to

7:51 am
out. >> reporter: but on second thought he sounded happy that he didn't make it. >> i feel like i have heard enough from him. >> reporter: with the week he's had, can you imagine if he had been here? a new scam targeting the real estate industry. how hackers are posing as realtors to take advantage of home buyers. who are these people?

7:54 am

7:55 am
account. >> it's creepy being watched and knowing they had been reading our e-mail. >> reporter: she was not alone. >> she was rushed. this is her life savings. >> reporter: suing a different company on behalf of his client who lost half a million dollars due to a similar fraudulent e- mail. the national association of realtors along with fbi are issuing warnings about sophisticated e-mail scams targeting the industry. >> it's a nationwide phenomenon unfortunately. >> reporter: realtors aren't the only ones being hacked. >> an agent's e-mail sometimes, can be a title company, a hinder, a transaction coordinator. >> reporter: the hacker's goal, impersonate somebody involved by sending e-mails from their account instructing buyers to wire money usually at just the time the buyer is expecting to make the payment. >> they have been watching us and reading our correspondent.
7:56 am
>> reporter: lucky for cristina, they requested a fake e -- questioned the fake e- mail. the amount was off by just a bit bit. >> reporter: the realtors association and fbi both advise everyone in the real estate market to verify any instructions they receive via e- mail either in person or on the phone and never wire money unless you are positive the instructions came from a reliable source. the scary thing is they are monitoring conversations. they know what to say to you to convince you that it is a realtor. >> the idea that they break in and wait for the appropriate time and then send the e-mail is incredibly frightening. >> who knows what other financial information they're garnering. >> you have to be careful what you send over the internet. still ahead, a raging wildfire forcing mandatory evacuations this morning.
7:57 am
the latest on containment efforts.
7:58 am
7:59 am
morning. the time is _ _. good morning, i'm melissa caem and i'm julie watts. phil has e day off.. le welcome back to kpix5. the time is 7:59. >> we'll get started this half hour with a quick check of the forecast of the we are starting with cloud cover, fog socked in
8:00 am
along the coast. around portions of the bay, this is a look at the golden gate bridge where temperatures are warming up in some locations. it is 60 san jose, upper 50s for many locations around the bay. we are going to warm today. watch what happens with futurecast. we are socked in along the cost, mostly clear for inland bay locations. as we advance through the day we start to see the clouds pull back or we would if my computer was working, but it is not. you will have to take my word for it. your weather headlines today, we are going to warm by a few degrees with more significant warming coming our way wednesday. we will figure out what's going on with the weather computer and i will toss it back to mellisa. >> thanks. president trump will begin to push agenda with the help of a new chief of staff. reince priebus is out and homeland security secretary
8:01 am
general john kelly is in. one author has studied presidential chief of staff and says priebus didn't have enough authority to control white house personnel or tell the president hard truths but did have experience with congress on capitol hill. >> priebus made rookie mistake after rookie mistake. kelly doesn't really know the hill. generals have not done well in this position. >> priebus says he will stay on for two weeks to help kelly with the transition. elaine duke has been named acting secretary of homeland security. phil and i asked the former san francisco mayor willie brown if it is possible to get rid of leaks in any administration. >> absolutely not simply because the person at the top starts the leaking. whenever you want to get a story out early, want to get your angle in, and want a reaction, sometimes you have to call your friendly inside reporter. that's a leak. >> it seems though that we didn't see this during the
8:02 am
obama administration for example. >> more. >> really? >> it was not advertised. you don't think those stories were because reporters were going out doing shoe work? of course not. they wait for it. >> wait a minute, i will take exception with that. first, we do a lot of shoe work. >> thank you. >> second, it is interesting how you talk about call your friendly reporter. president trump just tweets it out, you know. >> he is not leaking. he is broadcasting, phil, when he does it that way. what you don't know about trump probably is he is constantly using his relationship. believe me, i suspect that he had a relationship with both anchors on morning joe. after all, they gave him always the first 15 or 20 minutes of their program during the primary involving republicans. and he was most effective achieving the goal of getting
8:03 am
the nomination. >> you say he is the one doing the leaking? >> yes. he starts the leaking. he starts it. >> oh we have heard there are issues with people getting buy in, having collaborative decision making when you operate like that in a very top down kind of operation. you get a lot of unhappy people who feel like they haven't been heard, concerns haven't been addressed. even bringing them in and pretending what they have to say can go a long way. >> sometimes the only way to get anything in the paper is to leak. >> you have been covering politics for a while. how often do people leak political information about opponents or even their bosses to you? >> it's certainly happened a number of times. but sometimes the people in the administration don't know where to look because they forget. there is always someone in the room cleaning. there is an intern, someone watering plants. when they start looking and trying to figure out who is leaking, these are the people
8:04 am
they have forgotten who are in there who are the people in my experience who are the ones who for me have been leaks. we have people at the top but you have to look out for people at the bottom. be nice to the cleaning staff. >> a reminder to be careful how you treat people. >> interns are important, having been one. crews are busy keeping a wildfire from spreading. the blaze broke out 120 miles east of is san francisco near jamestown in the gold country. mandatory evacuations are underway. the fire started just before 2:00 yesterday afternoon and has grown to 600 acres. one man saw it get within a dozen feet of his home. >> we were watching the fire come up the hill and turned around and it's already jumped the fence. those dc10s dropped. see the barns, they're red. they're rusty color, not red by choice. i had a power hose until the
8:05 am
power went out. >> last check, firefighters had the blaze 30% contained. evacuation orders are in effect for dozens of homes. there is no word yet on how the fire was started. after weeks of firefighters battling flames, this blaze is over 85% contained. firefighters continuing to mop up the area to ensure that hot spots are contained. as wildfires rage across california, firefighters may soon have a game changing tool to add to their arsenal. the global super tanker is a converted boeing 747 jet capable of dropping 19,000 gallons of water or fire retardant. it has been approved for use now by inner agency air tanker board. before that, the world's largest aerial fire fighting tanker was sitting idle. it has now been cleared for use over the next 17 months. san francisco may become the first city in the country
8:06 am
to ban flame retardant chemicals in furniture in children's products. legislation was introduced tuesday at the board of supervisors' meeting. this is intended to slow the spread of fire but for decades some of the most commonly used retardants have been linked to serious health concerns including cancer and developmental delays. some are found in high levels inside the human body especially studies find in children and nursing mothers. the chemical industry defends these insisting they save lives and provide valuable time to escape from fire. joining us today is a former state senator now running for mayor. you didn't introduce the san francisco ordinance but have introduced four separate pieces of flame retardant legislation, one which now requires furniture come with notification labels telling you if there are retardants or not. >> correct. >> you have a lot of background
8:07 am
on this. what are implications? could a san francisco city ordinance ultimately impact california or the country. >> having fought this for years, i have my battle scars to prove it all. san francisco could lead the nation in this. it would not be the first time. think of banning cigarettes in restaurants, banned mercury thermometers here in san francisco, provided domestic partners for same sex couple benefits, provided equal access to county health plan for transgender employees. it is amazing how a small town like san francisco can lead the way on any number of issues and change the way not only business but government operates across the country. >> it will not be an easy fight. you have a lot of experience. this is why he is here dealing with the industry. it successfully killed three of your four deals. opponents of your bill circulated this flyer showing a child being saved from a
8:08 am
burning building and it called it a deadly mistake. i believe they successfully did kill one of your first pieces of proposed legislation. this ordinance will face the same opponents as well this time around as retailers who in san francisco won't be a be to sell anything that doesn't have retardant. it puts more flame retardant free products on the market. how hard is it going to be to get this passed? >> i think it has a great chance in san francisco but the chemical industry spent about 6 or $7 million to kill our first bill. in the context of sacramento that's a lot to invest in one piece of legislation given there are thousands produced each year. they spent it on newspaper advertisements, television commercial, radio commercial, robo calls, mailers. all of it was suggesting if you vote for the legislation, your child will dinah fire. they were selling fear. keep in mind this is a multi
8:09 am
billion dollar end rethat did not want government suggesting that their product was dangerous. of course the chemical industry couldn't say vote no on the bill so they set up a fraudulent group called californians for fire safety. if you went to the website you would think it was a collaboration of teachers, parents, fire marshals and all these good people. >> how does it impact the ordinance? you still have the same opponents i assume and then you are throwing in retailers who will feasibly sufficient because they have to come up with new stock. in the case of car seats there is only one car seat on the market that does not have flame retardant. that could mean they couldn't sell any but that one. >> as they debate this, keep in mind there are two proponents. it is upholstered furniture as
8:10 am
well as juvenile furniture. upholstered has these chemicals inside the cushions within the piece of furniture we are talking about. so there are i believe about 75% of the market place as a result of what we did in sacramento is chemical free because that's where the market is leading. that's what consumers want, chemical free furniture. with regard to the juvenile products, if it is not entirely available at this point, supervisors might want to stage implementation until consumers would have choice. they're going to look at it carefully. >> that's how those proposals work their way through. i want to point out that we have a statement from the chemical industry which notes that these are subject to review by epa. basically consumers don't have to choose between chemical safety and fire safety. they can have both. i have seen this statement throughout my reporting on flame retardants. i have been interviewing you
8:11 am
for years on the topic. this implies that the epa reviews these so they must be safe for use if they're already in products. >> keep in mind, there are about 80,000 untested chemicals in our daily consumer products. for the epa, which this president wants to completely decimate by cutting all of its funding, how many thousands of years would it take for all of these chemicals which are subject to epa review to actually get review? in fact, they're saying you can be both chemically safe and fire safe, and we are neither. we are not chemically safe now and these chemicals in fact do not even keep you safe. when they burn, they convert to carbon monoxide. so firefighters are dying fighting fires, not from flames, but from the chemicals
8:12 am
emitted when these chemicals burn. in fact, san francisco firefighters have set up their own cancer prevention foundation because hundreds of san francisco firefighters have dealt with the very cancers caused by these chemicals when they burn. they convert to known carcinogens. these are very dangerous chemicals and they can impede your child's iq development. >> there are lots of studies that talk about the concerns here. a final question, do you think this will pass? do you think there will be a san francisco ordinance and we'll be the first in the country to ban the chemicals. >> i don't know that it will look like it does at introduction but some very significant form of it. i believe there will be political will at the board of supervisors to pass it. >> thank you for coming in and providing your decades of contest. that's it for us right now. we'll be right back.
8:13 am
8:14 am
8:15 am
and i'm an arborist with i'pg&e in the sierras. the drought in california has killed trees on a massive scale. any of those trees that fail into power lines could cause a wildfire or a power outage. public safety is the main goal of our program. that's why we're out removing these hundreds of thousands of hazard trees.
8:16 am
having tools and technology gives us a huge edge to identify hazard trees. my hope is that the work we're performing allows that these forests can be sustained and enjoyed by the community in the future. together, we're building a better california. after bay area tech giants. the question: should they be held liable for the de the family of a california college student who died in a terrorist attack is going after bay area tech giants. the question is should the tech companies be held liable for the deadly violence? >> if you ever post content that contains a song on youtube, it's removed overnight. your kid' birthday party, you put a song in the background, and they remove it. you don't own the right. yet if you post a video of an isis terrorist beheading an american aid worker with a knife, that content won't be
8:17 am
removed, won't be filtered. somebody might report it. they might catch it and ultimately remove it but they'll allow the video to be posted again and again by the same people. >> youtube videos showing isis warning about attacks on france started about a year before terrorists murdered 130 people in november 2015. >> isis could not function without social media. it would be 50 guys in the desert jumping up and down chanting in a fire. >> gonzales was shot in the chest and died. she was a student at cal state long beach studying abroad. they're suing google as a parent company on youtube. >> social media sites allow isis to use their sites to plan and conduct. >> victims can sue anyone who
8:18 am
gives substantial assistance to a terrorist but websites have a special weapon. >> a get out of jail card. >> website owners cannot be sued for what others put. >> they don't have to police it. they can do whatever they want and they are immune from any repercussions. >> google used this to ask a judge to throw out the lawsuit. at a hearing today, the judge seemed ready to side with google. >> this is tough. >> if the judge does dismiss the case, plaintiffs say congress should update the law. websites aren't what they used to be. >> the things we are seeing in terms of the way that the internet is being used were not even imagined by the people who created that communications decency act. >> the plaintiffs are seeking damages here? >> that's right. the plaintiffs are seeking some. they haven't asked for a
8:19 am
specific amount. we know the judge will decide whether to dismiss the case sometime in the next couple weeks. >> one thing i think is interesting, if you post on youtube and get enough views, you can make money. youtube pays you per however many hundreds of views. isis could be making money off of the videos using the platform. did the judge bring that up? >> the plaintiffs did but it was one thing that the judge seemed interested in. she seemed to think that the special immunity pretty much isolated google from most of what was happening but seemed to invite plaintiffs to flush it out more, to come back with better allegations. if it is true that youtube is paying isis and it is true that youtube is also profiting, that is something that she looked to be more interested in pursuing even though she could dismiss the rest of the case and say come back with more information. with this, you might be onto
8:20 am
something. that can be what we see in the case. >> so interesting. >> it was really a fascinating day. >> i am interested to learn more about this. i am sure for a lot of folks, you are going outside, you want to learn more about the forecast. i have that as well. we do have gray skies over the golden gate with a little bit of drizzle and fog to start your day. temperatures are beginning to warm. we are in the 60s right now in places like concord, liver more, san jose. temperatures will warm today, five degrees for many locations above yesterday. we are likely going to see the fog pull back and make way for sunshine around the bay and likely many spots along the coast will see sun at least temporarily today. we are waiting for this, high pressure from the four corners region, ridge access pushing west. temperatures will increase beginning today gradually. it's really monday, tuesday, even wednesday that we see the hot weather. we are talking triple digits

of marijuana and it consumes 1.5 to 2 million. clearly some california product is going to other states which is and will continue to be illegal. >> in the past, when a product left the farm, there is a really good chance the grower had no idea where it was going. in the future, every license holder is going to need to know where every gram of product is ending up. so conditions are going to change quickly. >> the regulations are supposed to begin january 1, 2018. at that point, growers will have a choice. get a license and keep tons of extra marijuana in california or continue to farm and sellae cross state lines in violation of federal law and under the radar. >> nobody wants to operate under the radar. they want to do this legally, to say what i am doing is okay. >> reporter: growers will want a business license and when the retail space for marijuana opens, there will be new uses for new surplus. >> about 75 pounds of cannabis,
