in one hour attorney general william barr will deliver long awaited testimony on the mueller report. a live look at washington this morning where members of the senate judiciary committee spent the night scrambling to rewrite their questions. that's after news broke that special counsel thought barr did not properly convey the results of his investigation. in march robert mueller wrote to the attorney general saying he was frustrated with the lack of context in barr's summary of the 448 page report. the letter barr sent to congress gave the impression that the investigation found no wrongdoing in the redacted report released two weeks ago, mueller laid out at least 10 instances where he felt the president may have obstructed justice. barr has released the text of today's opening statement. in it he says he wrote the letter to congress because it was necessary to make a judgment on the obstruction aspects of the probe. critics of barr's decision say mueller did not make that determination one way or another because it should have
been been left up to congress. and cbs will bring you the attorney general's testimony live in a special report that starts at 7:00 right after kpix5 news this morning. in just a few hours attorneys for the master tenant at the ghost ship warehouse in oakland will deliver their opening statements to the jury. the alameda county courtroom was packed as the trial got underway yesterday. prosecutors showed pictures of the 36 victims and read some of their final text messages to their loved ones. the master tenant derick almena is accused of illegally converting that warehouse into living space before the fire. max harris was the creative director. he helped plan the party. each facing 36 counts of involuntary manslaughter. yesterday harris' attorney argued that his client tried to save people when the fire broke out in december of 2016. he also claims that fire investigators didn't preserve the evidence. >> and then to fail to adequately rule out or rule in

projects to both oakland people and local residents. we have been trying now for a couple of years to get a project labor agreement with the city of oakland. we have got project labor agreements with the city of berkeley, city of san leandro, city of hayward, city of alameda and that's basically an agreement that on city projects that we have got guaranteed to use union labor on those projects. but also to make sure that we have a pathway for oakland residents, especially disadvantaged residents to get into the trades through these plas and have careers in construction, sustainable middle class careers. >> reporter: what's the hold up as the city -- do the city council need to be convinced that this is right for the city? >> the city council passed a resolution last summer to start working on a pla and we really haven't had a lot of traction so our goal is to ask the city, get back on it, get the pla in place. we want a strong public lands policy. the city council also passed a
resolution at the end of last year to ensure that development on public land is going to have a priority for affordable housing so our working class residents of the city of oakland can actually afford housing in oakland but also to ensure that that housing is being built by union labor. >> reporter: andreas thank you so much for your time. a lot of moving pieces to this protest today. they will be taking this protest from here at 17th and webster down to oakland city hall in just about an hour and a half and we will bring you those details coming up next. in oakland, jackie ward, kpix5. this afternoon a may day protest against workplace discrimination and dangerous working conditions is planned in san francisco. march set to begin at 4:00 p.m. at the embarcadero plaza leading to a 5:00 p.m. rally at city hall. new this morning, wikileaks founder julian assange is heading to a u.k. prison for violating his bail. this video taken just a few hours ago showing assange pulling up at the courthouse for the hearing. a british judge sentenced him to 50 weeks in prison.
