>> and we're gonna be reaching out to our republican colleagues who are still undecided. >> opening statement, too part son to be a supreme court of justice. >> i'd say so. i never heard a supreme court justice come out and say that there's a vast left wing conspiracy to undermine his nomination. whoever heard of a supreme court justice who's supposed to be on the court to be impartial, to be that political, it was so makedly
7:14 am
political. and when he came up for his nomination hearing in 2006, there were a lot of concerns that he was a political operative. and he showed that yesterday, that that is what he is. we do not need a political operative under this kind of clout on the united states supreme court. >> what we saw yesterday was a coordinated effort to change the conversation away from the brave, courageous survivor of sexual assault because her story was so intensely undeniably credible. to a partisan attack. and what judge kavanaugh said yesterday was also a complete change from his saying inly at his first hearing there's no republican or democrat side on the supreme court. now it's a vast left wing conspiracy out to get him. and that is demeans and
7:15 am
disrespectful to the brave survivors who have stepped forward. it makes them puppets and pawns when in fact they are blatantly and proudly independent and have come forth to tell their own story voluntarily. [ all talking ] >> we're clearly not in the majority. >> judging by the way they've handled the committee vote so far, the rules don't matter. >> can we take one more question? i don't even know what that means. [ laughter ] >> okay, thank you! >> thank you. >> okay, so there you heard some of the comments from the outside hallway where inside they're still hearing comments

( james )( darya ) welcome back to the kron 4 morning news. let's get a check of >> felt a lot like summer this week! today made the change. we were in the 90s yesterday for some, only to be in the 70s for the same areas today. not gonna be feeling similar at all. big changes in a short period of time. san francisco right now, downtown seen from the north bay. we do have fog and cloud cover out there. it's a little aloft. that means it's not touching the ground. you do have good visibility on all your route, including the 101 and the 1 which were affected by lower
7:20 am
visibility yesterday. san jose a little overcast kicking this one off. it's gonna stay offcart a little longer today. we have low-lying clouds filtering in across the bay but also some high clouds pushing in from the pacific. these clouds associated with an area of low pressure that's slowly meandering its way our direction. we are seeing a few showers along the coast this morning. really nothing more than just a couple of sprinkles. we won't be seeing any rainfall today. but tomorrow this is what we can expect. by saturday afternoon, right around 2:00 pm, we start to see some actual measurable precipitation pushing into the northern california coast just nothing of the -- north of the bay area. we start
7:21 am
to see some lighter conditions pushing into the bay area. hundredth was an inch, not a lot. oakland, half moon bay, around 0.05 of an inch. these numbers, not even stretching down to san jose, which is looking likely to remain quite dry into the weekend. next chance of rain after that is monday. and that does look a little more widespread to start off next week. temperatures later on today, only boosting into the 60s and 70s. antioch and livermore, these areas were in the 90s yesterday. not so much today at all. and while we stayed in the 70s through your forecast, again tomorrow, late in the day into sunday morning. that slight chance of rain and another chance on monday. temperatures all across the board staying nice and cool. and definitely good for putting on sweaters and maybe some jackets! >> let's head over to the richmond, san raphael bridge, westbound 580 from hash through through the toll -- harbor
7:22 am
through the toll plaza. i don't see any problems coming in from the north bay. there's a pocket of slow traffic southbound 101 heading into san rafael. but that's about it. 22 minutes from novato to san francisco. this is 92, commute out of hayward, and it's creeping along, expected to stay like this until 9:00. you're under 30 minutes to the 101, and still hotspot free. remember when you're coming off the bridge, take harrison street instead of fremont street because fremont street is still closed from mission to howard. and there's a big backup there a couple of blocks approaching that closure. >> thanks a lot, robyn. new this morning, bart has just announced they're adding ten new inspectors to catch people who try to evade fares. >> trying to crack down on that.
7:23 am
>> reporter: in just a few month, you're gonna be seeing more fare inspectors on bart. those are the people that check your tickets to make sure you paid to ride bart. this week the bart board of directors vote the 7-2 to hire 10 additional fare inspectors and expand the teams to nights and weekends. it's gonna cost about $900,000. a spokesman says fare inspectord increase -- inspectors increase police presence on platforms and trains and compliance over time. bart has six fare inspectors who work during the day on weekdays. in january bart started enforcing a new proof of payment system, allowing inspectors to check for valid fare inside the bart system. since march, 3813 citations have been issued. we talked to a woman who says she's been the victim of fare evaders which calls tailgating.
7:24 am
>> they get mind you, and when the levers open, they slide in with you. that happens a lot. at embarcadero, especially in the city. >> reporter: she says one time she had an injury on her foot so she couldn't move fast enough and they got in right after her. the new inspectors will start working the beginning of 2019. >> we'll take a break. >> and we're following breaking news of the hearing for judge brett kavanaugh, still underway. senators on the judiciary committee making their comment, statements before a 10:30 our time vote. this is customizable streaming tv for your family.

7:41 am
member you may want to get off at harrison instead of fremont because fremont remains closed from howard over to mission and it tends to back up the traffic through that intersection. golden gate bridge is smooth with 27 minutes to san francisco. friday light traffic. more drivetimes coming up. back to you, james. >> thank you -- fleet week is kicking off. we are your official fleet week station. they announced an effort to keep everybody coming to san francisco safe. >> we will be ready to respond to any event. it could be an event or an emergency in the neighborhood. >> they are ready to go. they also weighed in saying that if they plan to -- if you plan to drive and park your car make sure to hide your valuables where people can see

7:46 am
potential. this is what we are looking at -- about one day away moving into tomorrow -- saturday we will have increasing clouds cover with offshore showers. these showers will make their way inland by 1 pm-2 pm tomorrow and we will be looking at moderate to isolated heavy showers in northern carolina -- california toward the border. we are not seeing this during the day but overnight we will see a round of a few scattered sprinkles across the bay pushing into saturday and sunday morning. how much rain can we expect? not a lot. don't get your hopes up. we are talking about the rain totals of point 100. the numbers range from 5/100 to just a little bit more at half moon bay. the numbers are cooler than
7:47 am
yesterday. only in the 70s for a few hours -- a few areas. they were in the 90s yesterday. >> 74 for the high today. looking ahead not a lot of movement as far as the temperatures go and the best chances will bring will be saturday night into sunday morning and again monday. let's have an updated look at the traffic with robin. >> still moving along on 92. it is crowded and it will stay crowded two more hours or so. no crashes or stalls. 22 minutes out to 101. no major problems on the spam. backed up into the maze on all connectors. the drive is under 20 minutes. that is decent. on fremont street avoid the ramp and top over to harrison instead. remind is closed and it tends to

7:49 am
angels and the yankees would have to be swept by the red sox. the yankees beat the rays yesterday. did you see what they did? i don't know whether to call him righteous or foolish. it was his last start of the regular season. he only had to pick -- pitch two more innings. he decided to go caveman to retaliate for the rays pitcher. he was promptly ejected. that pitch cost him more than most people make in five years. later he said i don't make decisions based on money. was it worth it? really? >> it's never worth a. >> you are not a baseball player. these are the unwritten rules of baseball. >> let's go down -- 400 grand?
7:50 am
>> what is your price? >> the giants know where they will be -- they will be sitting on the couch like the rest of us. the only way to salvage the season is to blow up the dodgers' chances of making the playoffs. it won't be easy. the giants have two win two out of three this weekend. sunday the 49ers play one of 13 without jimmy g. it has got to be weird because it's against the chargers. he grew up rooting for them because the general manager was his grandfather. the raiders will try to get a win playing the browns. baker mayfield is making his first start after leading the comeback that gave them their first rectory and all that free beer. the first player to take any has -- to take a knee -- a
7:51 am
multi-year deal -- if he helps him win the fans will forget about it. still no bites on colin kaepernick. golf -- he kept the rams unbeaten. i won't go into this. female commentators are making history on amazon streaming. you can listen to the women or the men and two guys speaking spanish or two guys with reddish accidents. times are changing in england. meghan markle closed the car door. all by herself. that's it. royal women are not supposed to do that. should we rewind it? she closed the car door. >> inexcusable.

7:57 am
washington where the senate judiciary committee is having a hearing on the nomination on kavanaugh to the supreme court. they will do a vote this morning. between now and then you can see various senators speaking their mine. they may be hoping to sway someone but it looks like the vote will come along party lines. we will take a quick break and come back in a moment including a live report from washington d.c. -- the latest coming out of the capitol this morning. ( darya )
7:58 am
7:59 am
8:00 am
from the local news station we begin with breaking news. >> morning. thank you for joining us. >> the breaking news this morning -- the senate judiciary committee in a matter of an hour and a half or so will vote on the nomination of judge brett kavanaugh to the supreme court. >> yes, they went into session at 6:30 but they are still talking. let's go live to washington dc with the latest from the nation's capitol. >> >>reporter: the committee is set to meet at -- set to vote at 1:30 p.m. eastern time in regard to the confirmation of judge brett kavanaugh. at that point it would move to
8:01 am
a procedural vote. this comes as this committee has been meeting for an hour and a half. you can see the senator speaking now. the majority whip. a lot has happened in just this hour and a half. it began with a motion on the democratic side to the pima -- subpoena mark judge. he is the high school friend of brett kavanaugh. he was in the room when he allegedly pinned her down and tried to remove her clothing. the motion to subpoena him was shutdown. then there was a motion to have the vote this afternoon. that passed 11-8. there are 21 members of the committee and the reason only 19 voted is because two senators did not particiipate.
8:02 am
shortly after they led a group that got up and let the proceedings altogether. when you look at what they had you have the vote this afternoon. we have the support for kavanaugh to go through. there was a question about jeff flake as the tiebreaker and now he has decided to back up kavanaugh. once this boat goes through we will move to a procedural vote. at this moment the gop does not have the vote to confirm brett kavanaugh. throughout this there was support for kavanaugh and his testimony made a difference particularly for the american bar association who endorsed him. now they have released a statement saying deciding to receive without conducting an additional information -- this would not only have a lasting impact on the senate but negatively affect the trust necessary for the american people in the supreme court.
8:03 am
also out of the white house their views have not changed. it is their nominee and throughout the hearing they were largely silent. at the end president trump reiterated his support for his nominee. he may be confirmed in a few days time if the gop can secure those votes. >> reporting live in washington, omar gimenez. in addition there was a dramatic moment that played out when the protesters approached jeff flake. >> he said he would be in support of the supreme court nomination and the demonstrators didn't like that. >> nobody believes me -- i didn't tell anyone. you are telling all women they don't matter. that they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened you will ignore them. that is what happened. that is what you are telling all women.
8:04 am
they don't matter and they should keep it to themselves. if they have told the truth they will just help that man to power. >> that is what you were telling all these women. that is what you are telling me now. look at me when i am talking to you -- you are telling me that i don't matter. that what happened doesn't matter. you are going to let the people that do these things have power -- that's what you are telling me when you will for him. >> he had no comment. in the meantime we saw these protesters speaking out in support of doctor ford and saying they believed her allegations. this is the second time they've held a demonstration in the streets of berkeley shutting their support. this rally became a little contentious when they were confronted with the republicans who disagree. they back kavanaugh. we will continue to follow the latest scheduled for 10:30
8:05 am
our time which you can watch online. >> > right now we will look at the weather and traffic. robin? >> in oakland all lanes are blocked on highway 13 north after the 24 split. this accident is left over from 7:00. they are just issuing traffic alert because they are holding all lanes of traffic and saying the alert will be in place 30 minutes with the backup growing and crawling to the split. if you take 5:80 -- 580 it's not so bad. going to the bay bridge toll plaza it's the usual jam packed up through the maze and crowded across the upper deck. more drivetimes coming up. all the clouds in the traffic cam -- you can see them from above. take a look at the fog and low- lying clouds. this is intruding well into the east bay. this isn't impacting the
8:06 am
visibility but there's a lot to talk about. san jose is looking at cloud cover and starting the morning overcast and cool. by noon today still in the 60s and the numbers will be boosting and by the time we get to 3 pm the 60s and 70s. yesterday it was in the 90s. talking more about cooler temperatures and rain chances still to come. back to you. another big story, the traffic nightmare continues as we see the closure of the transit center extending to next week. >> yes, we have an update. >> another week this is the worst we've seen it all morning. that officer had to tell somebody i don't want to argue with you. get going. that car was trying to make a left turn where the gray corolla
8:07 am
was. it is clearly illegal. you can only make a right turn. that car was trying to make a left. he said just get out of here. the whole integration has changed. in the past you could drive through fremont street. but if you have been following this you know that the transit center has been shut down and they are not working at this time. they will continue to work on this until october to reopen. >> bart officials voted last night to the time is a:06. new this morning march officials have voted to add 10 new inspectors. >> we have more on the story -- lydia? >>reporter: soon you will see more inspectors. they will check your ticket. the board of directors at bart voted 7-22 expand the teams two
8:08 am
nights and weekend. this will increase the police presence on the trains and platforms and encourage compliance. bart currently has inspectors during the day and weekdays. in january they started to enforce the proof of payment system. they will check for valid fares. since march 3000 citations have been issued. we talked to a woman who said she has been a victim of this. >> i have been the victim of people -- i guess it's called tailgating. there was a time when i was recovering from a broken ankle in a walking boot and this guy pushed me through. >> the new inspectors will start working the beginning of 2019. a fair citation will cost you $55 for a juvenile, 75 for an
8:09 am
adult. >> thank you. the time is a:08. -- a mac:08. >> trying to link more murders to the golden gate killer. >> and dozens second my peppers day. they are searching for the person responsible. >> after the break a, we will on treasure island getting a chance to voice their concerns about a new toll that would charge them coming on and off the island even if they leave their. >> -- even if they live there. >> you could generate your own energy,
8:10 am
at home. or to save energy, unplug unused appliances. do your thing, with energy upgrade california. ( james )people across teh bay
8:11 am
area are getting a chance to weigh in on a plan to ch back. people around the bay area getting their chance to weigh in on a plan to charge a fee to get on and off of treasure island. >> how about six dollars to get on and off you don't want to do that? >> for the people that live
8:12 am
there -- it's a big issue because clearly this has a lot more to their monthly expense to and from work. some people say the money is needed to build homes and a transit system for the island itself. they have a meeting yesterday and the residents had a chance to voice their concerns. if this passes the drivers would pay upwards of seven dollars during peak hours. >> coming up, local leaders tried to do this. we will tell you what this is all about. >> (james)(darya) welcome
8:13 am
8:14 am
8:15 am
back. let's get a check of the weather this morning... a mac:14 and we have an update on the commute. >> this is a hot spot and look like it may be a head-on collision. all lanes are blocked northbound 13 after the split. we have emergency crews on the scene and these cards may have been traveling on tunnel road and fell onto 13. we are waiting for more details. all lanes are closed with a special alert issue. you can see that the backup continues to grow. coming from 24 it will be the usual crowd for a friday. 19 minutes from walnut creek over to this area but it could get heavier since we have this new trouble spot and heavy
8:16 am
traffic is merging. i will keep an eye on this hotspot. i want to show you the overturn accident. south to 80 before this area we have growing bike. in the counter direction but it is and overturned that i want to show you. it is slow. on the commute side it looks decent for a friday. going north from san jose to cupertino at about 19 minutes. not too bad with no major issues. checking in on the bridge -- still backed up and quiet to the north they. i will take the bay bridge coming up. >> a cloudy start to the day. goldengate bridge is viewable in the distance. if you look closely this tells you it's not fog but low-lying cloud cover for most of us. it is cloudy for most of us
8:17 am

9:02 am
offices are filled with protesters and the judiciary committee hearing was interrupted when democratic senators got up and walked out. ( darya )washington correspondent alexandra limon joins us live to break it all down for us.happening now? ( alex ) the atmosphere in washigton is just electric - judge kavanaugh's nomination has turned into all out political partisan fight even more than it was before. this all started this morning before the judiciary committee meeting started senator jeff flake the moderate republican released a statement saying he would vote in released a statement saying he would support judge
9:03 am
kavanaugh's nomination. that's important because flake is one of a key handful of republican senators and he's the only wub that's on the jew -- one that's on the judiciary committee among the key senators so that basically guarantees that kavanaugh's f committee. that led to that very dramatic moment you're talking about in the committee hearing when democrats got up and walked out. first, democrats introduced a motion to subpoena mark judge, that's the man that dr. kasem ford was present and witnessed when judge kavanaugh allegedly tried -- allegedly tried to rape her. naves voted down along party lines. along with that, senator grassily introduced another motion to set the committee on kavanaugh at 1:30 eastern today. some democrats flatly refused
9:04 am
to partake in that vote and then they got up and walked out one by one. first it was harris, then bloom enthat will and then they spoke to reporters in the hallway about why they did it. >> it was very clear that the republicans will break every person on the supreme court where be there with a cloud, he will weaken the court. >> we're talk about putting somebody on the united states supreme court for a lifetime. for the sake of our democracy and the integrity of our glam chicago. you would think that -- democracy. >> some democratic women
9:05 am
started to link arms and walk across to the senate side to get in on the hearing and join the senators that woked out in protest and that's why you saw them in that press conference behind them and dozens and dozens of protesters in the hallways laying down on the floor getting arrested, chanting and shouting things is coming. >> wow, lay the time line out for us. what happens next? when's the vote? what's ahead? >> it's obviously up in the air but as far as what we understand will happen next, the first thing will be this 1:30 senate judiciary committee vote that'll be to vote kavanaugh out of committee and will likely pass. then we understand that republican leadership has set a vote the first procedure vote for the full senate to happen saturday around noon. now, it's a procedure vote called a motion to proceed, and then after that the official vote on kavanaugh we're being
9:06 am
told might happen monday or possibly tuesday but, again, all of these moving pieces, everything is up in the air and i presume subject to change. we just really don't know. >> okay. thanks a lot, alex. we'll stay tuned for that because 0u 0 our time is when -- 10:30 our time is when that vote will happen. then another moment that alex yqux/nmx?ñ?ñwhere corned senator jeff flake of arizona when he said he'd support the no, ma'am and you got to -- nominee and you got to see what happens. >> nobody believes me. you're telling all women that they don't matter. that they should just stay quiet because if they tell you what happened to them, you're going to ignore them. that's what happened to me and that's what you're telling all women in america. that they don't matter, they should keep it to themselves because if they have told the truth, they're just going to help that man to power anyway. that's what you're telling all of these women. that's what you're telling me
9:07 am
right now. look at me when i'm talking to you. you're telling me that my assault doesn't matter. what happened to me doesn't matter and you're going to let people do these things and put them in power. that's what you're telling me when you vote for him. >> that was in the elevator he was cornered before going into the committee room. in berkeley. this time supporting christine blasey ford just like last time but this time there was a bit of discourse and things got a little contentious when another side showed up to the street to rally for kavanaugh and the berkeley college republicans and they back his nomination so everything was peaceful but two sides shouting at each other for a time. >> the other big story this morning is a situation in san francisco where now it looks like the headache for commuters will continue into next week. cracks at the trans-bay transit
9:08 am
will be there for a little while longer. will. >> reporter: realtime traffic as far as downtown san francisco and you can see very much busy at howard and fremont and only letting certain people go. that car thought he or she could possibly go through. no, only construction crews. you get the point that ever since this was shut down a couple of days ago, people are thoroughly confused and you can no longer go down on fremont and submission and market because of what's going on. the cracked beams at the sales force transit and the belly exposed and all morning we've seen people go up and down with cherry pickers looking at it. we know october 5 possibly is the guesstimation on when this street will be open to the public but they spent 2.2 billion on this, open for 40 days and it still went wrong. who knows in october 5 will be
9:09 am
met. in the meantime, traffic problems. goodness gracious . just avoid this area all together. >> yeah. >> with that, a lot of people are taking it to heart and we've got the new steps that bart is taking to crack down on fare evaders. plus, somebody opened a pepper spray can and unleashed and a whole bunch of customers went running out. we'll tell you what happened.
