exposes our friends, and widens the playing field for autocrats like president putin. our leadership depends on the power of our example, and the consistency of our purpose.>> the white house released a rough transcript of the first phone call between the president, president donald j. trump, and the ukrainian president, both complement each other on their campaigns. residents linsky invited trump to his inauguration. republicans made a motion to subpoena the whistleblower, fueling the debate over whether the whistleblower should be identified. first of all, i'm grateful the president has released the call record. i would now ask the president to release the thousands of other records that he has instructed the state department not to release. >> on wednesday the democrats were forced to make the absurd argument that hearsay can be much better evidence than direct evidence. and just when you thought the spectacle couldn't get more
bizarre, committee republicans received a memo from the democrats threatening ethics referrals if we out the whistleblower.>> in just the past few minutes, the president has been accused of witness intimidation. he started tweeting during these life hearings. i want to read you part of one. he said, "everywhere marie yovanovitch, turned bad." live in the newsroom, alyssa harrington, ktvu fox 2 news. five people were arrested in connection with a deadly hollowing night shooting at an air b&b rental in orinda where five people were killed. search warrants were served yesterday in marin city. vallejo. antioch, and san mateo. four suspects were arrested on suspicion of murder. the suspects are identified by law enforcement is 28-year-old lebron wallace from san mateo, 20-year-old chuck has sweeney of marin city, 20-year-old jason iles also of marin city, and all 30-year-old sham ron mitchell of antioch. if you suspect, 21-year-old devon lamson of vallejo, was arrested as an accessory.

on?>> you can't change history, you can do is learn from it. and what stanford should learn from the situation is, that censorship and silencing are never the right answer. and you have to keep your promises.>> stanford says the plaques will go up as soon as it is feasible. one will have information that includes support and resources for survivors. the other will have a quote from miller, that reads "you took away my worth, my privacy, my energy, my time, my safety, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, until today." , connecticut residential candidate bernie sanders will be in oakland today to receive the endorsement of the country's largest nurses union. national nurses united says it supports sanders medicare for all proposal. the union also endorsed sanders in the 2016 presidential race. just yesterday, sanders supporters submitted the opening of his campaign office in san francisco.>> the bay area has the largest number of bernie sanders volunteers in the country. so we will be detaching our volunteer throughout the state of california and throughout the

bart. interesting idea, let's get to our traffic expert. what you think, they think this is something that could be done here?>> you know how building a bridge, it took long to build that? so i think that, if they start doing that, maybe in 20 years we will have a bridge. it takes a long time, they have to do a thought of studying. so i'm not holding my breath, but it is a nice idea in my opinion. let's take a look at highway 24 westbound if you are driving to lafayette area, you can see traffic is going to be moderate. there have been no major issues on the tunnel approach. highway four getting a little slow. this is a look at the bay bridge. talking about bridges, this is the busiest bridge of the bay area, even on a friday like we do have some slow traffic here. 880 n. is slow. but you know, bridget is doing much better than the san mateo bridge if you can use that bridge. 8:17, spring stephen. thank you sir. we'll get to it here. things are winding down as far as any rain goes. drizzle whatever, we will take it. in a month it has been very

they. i don't think you'll get much out of it, it will be cooler and wednesday. this low looks to really energize itself over southern california, a look at some of the rainfall projections. this won't be until wednesday into thursday. so a lot of time to fine-tune the details but you are seeing some pretty hefty totals here south of us. maybe the fear could get some on the backside of that for some mother natures now and not man-made know. our system is sliding through the second of two, and there is not much left. we had some light rain in mendocino county. also into lake county and you saw the son tried to work its way through sonoma, maratha and moran. 50 thames, 59 in oakland. the lows are warmer, 64 to 68, could be a few near 70 but we had a little dip in the temps yesterday. they are going back up over the weekend after the system goes through. we will have more son in the high builds in, and a slight offshore breeze. not enough to make a big concern, at least not for the weekend. temperatures will bump up sunday into monday. they look to be the warmest days until they can get the next system to form itself over us on tuesday afternoon and evening. 60s on the temps today. again warmer into the weekend,

southern nevada, and into arizona. there are projections of the lows going to intensify. we got a .03 2.05 next tuesday night and wednesday. i would take that as a victory but it could be really impressive down south. again, five or six days before this all comes together. those are some of the early projections. there are some signs that maybe some sierra snow wrapping back around that low. next wednesday night into thursday. so maybe some changes coming here, finally. our system there is not much left, the secondary system that came through after yesterday, and most of the rain if not all of it has pushed out of the area or ended or fallen apart. systems kind of splitting so that takes a lot of energy away. 50s on the thames, low to mid to upper. highs today, 64 to 68, can above average at least on the high side. i am in the theme this month for almost the entire month inland, not so much coast in the bay, today they will all be there. the weekend looks better as a high kicks in behind the system for a cooler system is now about done. as it kicks out of here the light rain and most of the cloud cover is on its way out as well. the weekend, more sunshine, a breeze from the north, and
warmer temps. today, 62 almost 700, but these will pop back up tomorrow even though days are getting shorter. sunday into monday look pretty warm and we will start to focus on tuesday and see if we can get more rain in here. still to come on the nine, we will let you know that san francisco- based nonprofit that is helping at risk youth in a unique way. restoring classic cars. coming up on the ninth and how you can help the program on giving tuesday. it is a neighborhood that has long struggled with crime, drugs, and dirty streets. now, some merchants in the tenderloin say they have had enough. what they are doing to try to turn things around.
