5:02 am
on the actual altamont pass by the time you get there, traffic is slow. it is much slower before you actually get there on 205 and 580. we had an earlier accident on the shoulder at grant line road. that seems to be a trouble spot in the last few weeks. we have had an accident every other day for the commute. on 680 from san ramon to pleasanton, there have been no problems getting into the inner part of the east bay. traffic is moving along nicely at the bay bridge toll plaza. we have a little bit of a crowd and the cash lanes. in castro valley, part of crow canyon road in the east bay his clothes. >> rescue teams are searching for the driver of a car that went off the road and crashed into a pond. >> reporter: it started last night in continues this morning. it appears that the tow truck has the car. this is about a mile west from the san ramon city line. the sheriff's office received

5:07 am
purposes. if any such demands or requests were made by people within the obama administration. the president is responding to reports that the fbi used a spy or confidential informant to uncover ties between the trump campaign in russia. >> it plays into, certainly into president trump's long nails documented skepticism about the fbi in general. >> reporter: the justice department seemed to respond to the tweet, saying the inspector general will be asked to widen his ongoing investigation into the fbi. some democrats say it amounts to a big distraction from the russia probe led by special counsel robert mueller.
5:08 am
the president's attorney, rudy giuliani, says trump could sit for an interview with robert mueller, perhaps in july. the entire investigation could wrap up by september 1. >> i think it is good to have a proposed end date. i would imagine dealing with any prosecutor, there is no way that the end date is as firm as rudy ducked -- rudy giuliana makes it sound. >> reporter: the administration likes the sound of that end date because that means everything would be wrapped up before the midterm elections. >> is there any idea what a report by the inspector general could mean and when it might be released? >> reporter: it depends on what it includes. at they go off on this new tangent to look into whether there were political motivations and that the fbi put an informant in the trump campaign, that could take months. we just don't know at this point. another big gathering at lake merritt after a controversial incident there. the message behind yesterday's big turnout at the lake coming up. the warriors won big a game three of the western conference finals. we will recap their historic victory. >> we are looking at the early- morning bridge traffic into san francisco. it looks pretty good here. we will tell you more about this coming up. it is mostly clear skies
