7:32 am
the mayors are referring to. first it was u.s. gymnastics. now dozens of team usa swimming coaches are accused of sexual abuse including one from the south bay. thompson is talking about her former swim coach. she says he was her coach and when she was 15 he started sexually abusing her. she says it lasted until she was 20 and swimming competitively at arizona state university. she says usa swimming should have done more to protect her. >> if they would have recognized it and suspended him, i would have gone to another swim team. >> thompson did file a civil lawsuit against her former coach. it was settled out of court and he denied wrongdoing. police investigated but never filed charges against him and his name was not added to the list of banned coaches. thompson is demanding that he be added to the list which already contains some 150 names. onto national news,
7:33 am
president trump is responding to a democratic memo from the house intelligence committee. it's a rebuttal document to the republican memo that accused fbi and justice department of antitrump bias. >> reporter: on twitter saturday, president trump says the memo released by democrats on government surveillance abuses is a total political and legal bust and just confirms the the terrible things done. the president called in to fox news. >> what they did is really fraudulent and somebody should be looking into that. >> reporter: earlier this month, republicans released a memo saying surveillance warrant was obtained and renewed on the former trump campaign adviser carter paige. the redacted memo written by democrats alleges fbi had independent basis separate from the information to believe page
7:34 am
was knowingly helping russian intelligence. it is said our extensive review of the application failed to uncover evidence of illegal, unethical or unprofessional behavior by law enforcement. republicans say the warrant to monitor page taints origins of robert mueller's investigation into any connection between the trump campaign and russia. in california, u.s. senator diane fine stein fell far short of the votes needed to win california democratic party's endorsement of her bid for reelection. she spoke yesterday at the party's state convention in san diego before delegates voted auto endorsing -- on endorsing candidates. finestein got only 37% of the votes compared to 54% for her main challenger. neither earned the endorsement because that requires votes from 60% of delegates. during her speech yesterday she
7:35 am
emphasized her support for dreamers, young immigrants brought to u.s. illegally as children. >> we will not give up the fight. i pledge this to you. we will get the job done one day, believe it or not. please have faith and we'll protect you in the meantime. >> she does have a substantial lead in recent polls of actual voters. meanwhile state delegates are also declined to make an endorsement in the governor's race. no candidate came close to the 60% threshold. no candidate won the endorsement and still this is a national story. melissa and i asked willie brown who is heavily involved in democratic politics to tell us about the relationship between feinstein and the democratic party that could have led to this. >> it's up and down, in and out. dianne for a long time has been
7:36 am
booed, was always considered too conservative. sometimes that served her purpose. >> she made a commercial at one point showing herself being booed. >> that's when she gave a speech in support of the death penalty. that was filmed and everybody thought it was the end of her. she made it into a commercial and won. >> she reads voters of california much better obviously than members of the democratic party, that wing of the democratic party. it's always been dominated by the more activist types and dianne was never an activist. >> it's not surprising that the activists are the same people who made a rule change last year or late last year that would make it more difficult for incumbent to get democratic party nominee, endorsement. >> when you talk about activists, what are we talking about? who makes up this party when they go into the convention?
7:37 am
>> this takes a lot of time. a lot of these are consultants. a lot are retirees, people with time on their hands and energy to devote to this. they tend to be a little bit removed from what mainstream voters believe. >> many times they're really beholden to other organizations. for example, unions, environmental movement, sometimes the ethnic movement. there are people with agendas, whether it is black lives matter or wall street project. they're not coming just for democrats. they're coming to carry the water of their real organization. >> in california's open primary where it is the the two top vote getters that move from the primary to general chances are in california many times as not it will be two democrats. what the value is a party endorsement? >> i am not sure there really is much of one. there is money that can come with that. but in terms of being able to say i am the democratic
7:38 am
endorsed candidate, i am not sure it helps anyone. >> if you want to have the most not attack able, it is within the framework of the party. >> so the party can be a huge money operation. >> unbelievable laundry. >> all the special interests can give to the democratic party and once it is in that pool, it's all of a sudden clean, right? >> no. it's acceptable. it's never clean. >> willie brown having an interesting spin. you took a look at the votes aside from dianne feinstein, what others did you see? >> we have the vote tally. the issue with the governor's race is interesting. newsome despite having support of huge unions -- >> california nurses association, california teachers. >> right. he still only got 39%, didn't even come within striking distance of the 60% needed for actual endorsement.
7:39 am
and chung has not been able to get above the mid teens in polls and got 30%. so there is some skewing here. >> perceived in the polls as running closest. >> he got 9%. it looks like our democratic insiders are moving a little to the left but not so far as to endorse the lieutenant governor. some real issues. we are talking about worried parents packed into a town hall meeting in the east bay yesterday. nearly 1000 people showed up at a middle school in lafayette. the discussion was what can be done to keep kids safe in schools especially after last week's massacre in florida. a congressman organized the meeting and says there are common sense gun laws that could reduce the the violence if only congress would act. >> universal background checks would get rid of the loophole. number two, co-author of senator feinstein's bill, put assault weapons bans back in
7:40 am
place nationally. >> he says he does face an uphill battle where the nra holds sway but he is hoping the reaction to the shooting might be a tipping point. a congressman will be joining us later this morning. we will be talking about a number of things including the recent state of close calls at the nation's airways and the latest on the russian memo and of course guns. >> certainly a hot topic. dozens of bay area teachers are speaking out against one proposal from president trump to train and arm educators. >> i think it is ridiculous when they mandate that teachers carry weapons. that's the day i will retire. i will refuse to do that. >> teachers turned out for a flash mob yesterday in san francisco. the event was part of a nationwide protest called working people's day of action. tomorrow the supreme court will hear arguments in a case that may decide the future of public
7:41 am
employee unions. at issue is constitutionality of laws in 22 states including california that forced public employees who do not want to belong to unions to pay unions agency fees for bargaining collectively on their behalf. without the mandatory contributions, public employees fear they will lose millions and power that comes with it. in florida, the high school of the scene of the deadly shooting, it is starting the process of trying to return to normalcy. 17 people died after a former student went on a shooting rampage on february 14th in parkland. today counseling and orientation will be available for students and parents. teachers and other staff will be on campus tomorrow and tuesday but only for planning purposes. students are set to return wednesday but with a shortened class schedule. up ahead, state senator jerry hill takes us behind the scenes on the latest twist in the sacramento sex scandal.

there's only one place where you can get...
7:43 am
more adventure, and more memories. stay at a disneyland resort hotel, and you can save up to 25% on select rooms. so now's the time to get more happy! abruptly called it quits this week.. before his colleagues had the chance to expel him.. over sexual misconduct claims. his
7:44 am
picture has already been taken down from the walls of the capitol t i didn't tony mendoza abruptly called it quits. his picture has been taken down from the walls of the capitol. >> i felt i didn't have an opportunity to pretty side of the story to my colleagues who were going to decide my fate. i didn't have a chance to do that. i think it was shameful and not fair to me. >> accused of making unwanted advances to six women including several subordinates. the ex senator is suing the state for the handling of the investigation and he says he plans to run again. joining us to talk about senator mendoza and the on going sex scandal in sacramento is state senator jerry hill. was he going to be expelled? >> i think he would have been. the votes may not have been there exactly but it will be difficult for someone to not vote to expel him based on circumstances and facts. >> did he just step down to
7:45 am
make this quicker so he could run for reelection? there is the issue with the timing. he had to do it quickly so he could still qualify to run. >> he was still qualified because he had run the papers. i don't think he wanted that scarlet letter on him that he was expelled. >> let me get this straight. you were going to vote to expel him. he resigns and there is now going to be a special election in june to name his successor. and he is planning to run for that. there is a chance he could be back on your door step july 1. >> that's absolutely true. we have talked about that. we could be dealing with this soon again. the conclusion was at least in my sense and what i heard is we need to deal with what's happening now. there is a cultural problem in sacramento. we have to deal with it. we have to stand up and make sure this sends the message and it is clear that it will not be tolerated and not going to happen again. >> i understand it took two law
7:46 am
firms two months to complete the investigation. is that reasonable? are there steps being taken to try and streamline the time it takes to complete? >> two months seems like a long time but they interviewed 47 people, conducted 51 separate interviews over the period of time. it's sometimes difficult to find the people because some of the actions were ten years ago. >> the verdict, if there was one, wasn't guilty, wasn't not guilty. >> it was a flirtatious, sexual -- >> more likely than not. >> so the question becomes he is not the only lawmaker up there. there are male and female lawmakers who are under investigation. how many others will more likely than not face the same situation? >> i read the 46 page investigative report with the findings and facts and it was clear to me and i think most people that would see it that there was a pattern of behavior. it started ten years ago. he was preying on 22 year olds,
7:47 am
19 year old women and girls that were vulnerable. that's what the indication was. we have to take each case as it is and the facts as we find them. in this case it was fairly clear. >> you could have a situation where people are found to be more likely than not with improper conduct threatened with expulsion, resign, special election, go back and possibly get reelected and come back. >> that's the arrangement that person has with their voters. we have a responsibility based on the code of conduct. it's not a court of law. it is based on facts as we see them and the condition we find ourselves and the code that we have which is violated and has been in the past. >> what is though there to stop the legislature from becoming the perpetual jury judging its own peers which is begged into the rules. it seems like now we've got these investigations going on. you may be in a position to expel any number of your members. >> it may happen.
7:48 am
that's our responsibility. electorate has their responsibility to send a senator. it's our responsibility to evaluate how they perform and if they meet the standards we have set for ourselves and everyone. >> this is california. it ain't ever over one way or the other. mendoza or the others can be reelected. also he is suing saying the process was unfair, rigged against him, and it was political. you could have the courts saying whether or not you guys acted properly. >> it's difficult to do that when you resign. he made that decision and took that course of action. >> the courts will stay out. >> they may not. it's an evolving process. i think we have to take a stand, take a position. >> are people nervous in sacramento? >> some may be. i have not seen it. i think there is a legitimate concern that we have to evaluate terms and conditions. when you see what occurred, if
7:49 am
you were a state employee, he would have been fired. >> the lawsuit alleges he is treated differently because he is hispanic, that white legislators -- >> and his former house mate was pushing this for his own political agenda, state senate president running for senate and wanted this cleared up. >> i have not seen that as evidence or that there is discrimination. the facts are clear. if we see something that's discriminatory we would take action on that. it doesn't seem that way when you look at the facts. >> you read the report. did it appear he was interviewed. >> he was interviewed twice and able to make his case. >> he chose not to make the case on the senate floor. for now, it's not necessarily case closed. it's sort of like case half open. maybe we can get something more definitive with today's weather. >> if nominated, i will not run. wait a minute, that was johnson. as we have a look at ocean
7:50 am
beach, it's looking pretty good as we've got a few mild waves breaking over the shoreline. we have blue skies out there this morning from the ocean to the mountains. mount diablo in the east bay had that storm. it's not unusual. it happens every three to four years. as to why exactly, nobody really knows. we do know that it keeps getting bumped up a couple millimeters a year. it could get a magnitude six tomorrow, could get one 250 years from now. all we can do is be ready. concord is 35, oakland 39, liver more 31, san francisco 44, san jose 38. here is how it looks. high temperature forecast, upper 50s on this beautiful sunday morning. what a nice start. rain tonight. overnight we will get showers lingering into the morning commute. here is what's happening, sunny and a little bit warmer today. maybe a degree or two. you would need a very accurate
7:51 am
thermometer to see the difference. showers return tonight and we'll get a break monday afternoon and tuesday. in futurecast, here is 3:00 in the morning in the bay area. we have scattered showers. it will be over the north bay. does this linger? does this give us copious moisture? no, no. it's going to blow out of here so by noon monday we have clearing skies and not much in the way of rain. maybe 1/10 or two. that's it. there is more later in the week, a more robust system wednesday night and thursday. sunshine today, showers south over night. it will clear monday and tuesday. then we get more late in the week. the numbers are not far from averages. we will be in the upper 50s, a few low 60s. that's about where we should be. after the chance of showers tonight, we will be looking for more rain later in the week. we will cover the extended in a

8:02 am
last month you may recall the justice department threatened to subpoena sanctuary cities and states. he has continually warned if increased ice raids happen and proposed pulling federal funding from california but so far ice in san francisco has not commented on his latest remarks. melissa and i asked willie brown, president pulling out ice, calls about whether or not california is cooperating on taxes and other issues, what is the democratic response? >> he clearly is never ever coming to california. he really literally every time he gets a chance, he takes a shot. we are a sanctuary state. as far as he is concerned we have too many dreamers as far as he is concerned. we are antiwall as far as he is concerned. now he says we've got to have our own bodyguards. this guy is wild. >> not to get too founding father but the president is supposed to carry out
8:03 am
congressional mandates. it's not clear that the president has power to withdraw ice agents from california. >> melissa, you are falling into the trump trap. irrational thought taken seriously once again. it's the reporter and the lawyer in you. you have to stop. you have to go into public relation. >> how much of this is him trumping. it's trump being trump. you are ignoring the fact that trump has no acquaintance ship with the constitution. that's not part of what he uses as a guidepost, a guideline. as a result of that as far as he is concerned, he is the king. >> is he calling out california officials? this is the same state that has sanctuary laws that says do not cooperate with ice. oakland won't even let them set upper i am teres around -- up perimeters around operations. >> he is of course calling out california but california
8:04 am
officials call out trump every moment they can. privately, they will tell you even at the highest levels that they need ice agents to help with drug trafficking issues, with human trafficking issues, weapons trafficking issues. they're an integral part of the team that breaks these things up. i think there are people who are privately going that would be a really terrible thing to do. >> just maybe california really is capable of being an independent nation. the resources that are here, we can begin to with hold from the feds. believe me, the confrontation over that issue under the state guide would be a good one. >> an interesting confrontation. >> that's not a thing. california can't leave the union. stop even thinking about it. that's not a thing. >> what if it joined with oregon and washington. >> no. you can't leave. the constitution is an in. there is no out. we are in. lord knows we don't want to pay

8:06 am
it was a defamation system filed against oliver by robert murray whose murray energy company has coal mining operations. on a show last june oliver criticized the company and coal industry as a whole and ridiculed him by calling him geriatric doctor evil. hbo's comments, these were either factual or satirical, take your pick. both are protected under the first amendment. google slapped with a lawsuit for sexual harassment. loretta lee says that the tech giant's bro culture failed to protect her from severe pervasive abuse. she says she received sexual texts, was groped and slapped. she says one male co-worker hid under her desk and propositioned her for sex. she was fired for poor performance in 2016 after eight years with google. berkeley is considering launching its own bit coin like

8:09 am
fire crackers, this is an awesome parade. this is what san francisco is all about. close calls at the nation's airport, especially san francisco. who is keeping track? >> what's behind democrats' release of the latest russian memo. a congressman joins us to take us behind the scenes. planning a trip to hawaii? you better make sure you still have a ride. one issue facing one airline is canceling hundreds of bay area flights. fire fighting is a very dangerous profession.
8:10 am
we have one to two fires a day and when you respond together and you put your lives on the line, you do have to surround yourself with experts. and for us the expert in gas and electric is pg&e. we run about 2,500/2,800 fire calls a year and on almost every one of those calls pg&e is responding to that call as well. and so when we show up to a fire and pg&e shows up with us it makes a tremendous team during a moment of crisis. i rely on them, the firefighters in this department rely on them, and so we have to practice safety everyday. utilizing pg&e's talent and expertise in that area trains our firefighters on the gas or electric aspect of a fire and when we have an emergency situation we are going to be much more skilled and prepared to mitigate that emergency for all concerned.
8:11 am
the things we do every single day that puts ourselves in harm's way, and to have a partner that is so skilled at what they do is indispensable, and i couldn't ask for a better partner.
8:12 am
s-f-o and other airports across the country -- have prompted bay area politicians to call for an
8:13 am
independent revi a recent state of close calls at sfo and other airports across the country have prompted politicians to call for independent review. one congressman says 59 feet is too close to a major tragedy. he is referring to the most high profile incident in y'all when air canada flight dropped to 59 feet. he wants officials to talk about the incidents and why it's so hard to recover the cockpit voice recorders when they happen. >> that's something that would make any of us flying a bit nervous. this has been studied before, right, by the federal administration, aviation administration. reports continue to be inconclusive. i am confused. >> the last one was in 2011. it had some concerns. i think the point is to make it still statistically safe to fly. we have a great record for safety.
8:14 am
i am not concerned when i get on a plane. there is a pattern with busy airports that run way intrusions and near misses are more prevalent. they went up by more than 12% last year. >> you are not worried. but i would say if there is a 12% increase about possible run way crashes because of increased flights, are we talking about airlines cutting costs and more planes and people moving through at a faster rate? >> that's what we have to find. in the context of not being worried, i am concerned that we are having the near misses. that's the point. what's the protocol? what are we learning? how are we adjusting to the other things? that's the purpose of what we have asked. >> so what i have questions about and i think people viewing this have is we have airways. we have run ways. we have a government agency that's supposed to be making sure that those line up and everything is safe. is there pressure from the
8:15 am
airlines for more volume and is the faa doing an effective job keeping tabs? >> that's what we are trying to find out. there is pressure from companies that make money. at the same time you have to put it in context. i have a concern and we are trying to be sure they correct it. we want them to look at the near misses in a way they haven't heretofore and make sure they learn from them. technology is changing. maybe demographics of the pilots are changing. >> i find it unsettling that congress has to ask the federal agency. >> that's the nature of how the system works. when these happen, legislature, congress, city council is supposed to look and tell the administration to look more closely. >> the agency overseeing is supposed to look and issue a report. i don't understand. every time there is a problem. >> i have worked with ntsb,
8:16 am
with the faa. we have their attention. i think they are. we want to be sure they're doing everything possible. there is a little bit of status quo where they're comfortable with the statistics. that's our job, to wake them up. >> times have changed. speaking of change, fraudulent is what president trump is calling the democratic memo in response to the republican memo on the russian intelligence. you had a chance to read the republican. i don't know if you have read the democratic memo. what's going on? >> i try not to listen to the president. when he calls you fraudulent -- >> both sides call each other. >> he is the master of this. this is a reality game show administration. the fact is he should just let mueller do his investigation. if there is no collusion, he is innocent. why does he act so guilty? let the committees do their investigation. we should follow the process. we shouldn't come to conclusions ahead of time.
8:17 am
>> why do demo release this memo that looks so redacted? all the specifics seem to be blacked out. >> right. so we did it because chairman nunez doctored another memo and edited it and they released it. we wanted a counter balance. in committee it was voted on by republicans and democrats to release it. then speaker ryan and president trump refused to release it so people can see both sides. >> they can't. they're both redacted and questionable. you have two opinions. >> but you have to put that in context. the reason is there is intelligence material in there that we don't want the russians on know that we know about. there is a process to make sure that sensitive material isn't out there. >> then we release sensitive material and redact it. >> no, no, no. you are in a feisty mood today. >> why not? i want to go onto a more serious subject. that's the question of the
8:18 am
