6:16 am
the first is, we need your social security number or you're under arrest, a usually these are imposters, an they're so, trekky now with the spoofring. you'll see a 202 area code and you think, oh, it's coming from washington, d.c., it must be the government. arehear, and the people who the imposters themselves, the schemers, are so convincing. and especially if you know in your mind that you probably do owe theirs, you're more apt to listen and feelo scared about these things because they do threat this. an they'll tell you that we need -- you know, we will arrest you. we're going to come to your home right now. so you geto that point where you're on the edge of your seat, and they'll tell you, we can get rid of this immediately, we won't arrest you, but we needar your debit which is, of course, direct access to your cash, and we'reoing to get a wire transfer. and unfortunately as you said,n millfrysu single time.
6:17 am
>> which isretty sad. sphone, but the calls keep coming. i've gotten the calls. >> thengest t do is report it to the ftc and fbi as well get it o the record. the other thing is you keep hanging up or don't even pick up the phone at l. if you see a number coming in, no matter what the number is, if you don't recognize it, don't pick it up. if you answer the phonecall, it makes that scammer realize this is a live number and they're going keep trying again. if you have elderly neighbors or realtives who might victim to this, make sure that they're irs will never -- nor will the dew point of justice will never treeaten . they will never call you. r ask for your social security number or ask for money over t phone or by email. while we're talking number, metro ridership may be slowing
6:18 am
you down. they are down more than 0,000 trips day from more than a few years ago. the pressure is on thanks to the popularity of ridesharing purposesot it's only a problem for those on the metro but for those of us on the roads. >> absolutely. this goes to show you how important the metro system is for our gion. if people are not on the train or bus, then they're likely driving oraking rideshare. study after study have shown as great asyf uber and are, they're creating more problems on the road. we thought self-dri cngs are going to be great. it's going to totally elimi tte the nee be in a car. no. actually it's putting me cars on the road. it's pretty counterintuitive. all of this means in the larger scheme of things is flo has to get people to come back. a few years ago they were the
6:19 am
second busiest in the country, over 7,000 trips day. that's a lot. in new york city, it was well over a mi but we were right behind that. now the numbers, because o all the construction because of maintenance, fatigue, and peoplo switching uber, lyft, rideshare, all of those kinds of ings, bikes, scooters, any other form of transportation, we're down to 600,000 trips a day on a weeky, really 6,500 is the figure that came out. that's from l july oft year. metro will tell you during that time period there wer some huge projects going on, and there were. the red line was shut down. people weren't riding in the area. the blue and silver were going down and metro was telling you not to ride. so those numbers are low, but we beeve over the years people are getting maintenance fatigue.
6:20 am
they're tired of waiting for the work, tired of waiting in between trains. so people are finding othay to get around and frankly for a lot of people, pressing a butn is a l easier and you don't have to worry about a lot of things. t hard to getm once you've lost them. meanwhile riders and d.c.ho officialsere hoping to return to expanded hours ared s disappointed. the mayor is disappointed. >> yes. she made a big push to go back to late night hours. >> like everyone around the country. >> it's very clear the mayor wants to be in charge of a big city. she wants that big city feel. we are. washington is a very it metropol/cosmopolitan area and she wants the train to go along withow it. right maintenance is occurring in the mide of the nut.
6:21 am
she wants the trains to go back to 3:00 a.m.ld which w cut the amount of time maintenance can be done. we have a least anotherier of this expanded railway program. thisoes back decades, i could ride a book. so many previous metromi strations that just took their eye off the ball when it came to maintains the system and that's why we're in this predicament in the first place. if you really wt tonow how important metro is to our region, look what happens when it doesn't operate for a day. i mean the whole area really kind of shuts down, and so that's where we are. it is 100% the skeletal system of our region. if it fails, we're in big trouble. >> still trying to play catchup, and it's still painfully slow, the catchup. >> yes. >> we'll be right back. stay with us. people aren't talking about how much money they saved buying giant brand chicken. they're not talking w t -savourerho
6:22 am
they're also not talking about our unique assortment of over 1,300 nature's promise items. or our fresh grab and go salads and sandwiches. they're not talking, because they're eating. oh hello, that looks so good. at giant, it's the little things that make meal time easy, so you have more time with the people you love. for top-quality floors come to floor & decor. the largest tile and wood place i've ever seen in my life. it's every color. it's every style. it's a one-stop-shop. we got exactly what we wanted and we paid the price that we were looking for. why wouldn't you want to save money and make your house look great? the design center is a total inspiration. these guys know their stuff. hands down the best place for floors, no question. floor & decor. you have to see it to believe it.
6:23 am
. construction has one of metro's parking garages. it was literally sinking. it sank 4 inches. so those repairs are done, but now there's a new problem. no one knows how much the repairs will cost and who'o goingay for them. why is that? >> i mentioned a back, we could write a book. >> we only have time for a small portion of the chapter. >> this is rlly interesting. for me, i'm fascinated by this. the silver line was a whole animal in and of itself. and in order to keep the cost low, fairfax agreed to oild so the parking garages. that's what happened with this. it's not a metro project per se. entro will take it on once the line they hire a contractor, manhattan construction. they build tins it's $52 million for this parking garage. it's hu, massive, out in herndon. crewso rough. they find it's sinking. footers weren't where the design
6:24 am
specifications t called th be. they had to go through and redrill. now it's useless because they just shored the whole thing. the gd thing is the building is going to be operable and they'll be ae to go and fix it. but it's eight to ten miles behind schedule. there's definitely going to be a lawsect. you can e the repairs are in theillions of dollars, buts this all g to a larger point of why can't we just build things anymoreik you look at the silver spring transit and the silver line that has concrete issu, issues like this, the parking garage. y the quality control and overhas to be in better capacitysc when we do large projects like this. >> so we're looking at a new scheduled opening date. >> it won't need to start fung functioning until the metro line opens, and it's already been pushed back to 2020. >> yikes.
6:25 am
at least they're no longer concerned about its sinking, but f us should be concerned about i.d. theft. i know i've been avictim. if you suspect you're a victim, there are four things you can do right now. >> first of all, as you said, if you have noteen a victim, it's a matter of when, not . first you need to report it to the federal government. you can get an affidavit which you can do right on tha particular document. call the company, tell them you havecuhis parr report, send it to them and you want to make sure they put a hold on anc unts that were just opened up in your name. the first thing you want to do is contact all three credit bureaus.t them know fraud has occurred. the foushlg thing you should do which is what you should have done all the while is safeguard your credit in the first place. my feeling is it's better late than never at this point.
6:26 am
remember, you and i talked about it this week in one of our reports. to freeze your credit repos. it's now free. the federal government made it free so you can -- it's so easy to do. you literally go onto experian, transunion, equifax, and it will say right there, freeze your credit report. go ahead and do that. it's free as i say. a firsthand you're applying for a loan or credit card, have to do is ask the company -- say you're applying.k ashem what credit bureau do you use to check credit, they'll let you no. you go into that one, unfreeze it. it literally is a click of a button and you can click a time frame. if you think it's three days they're goi to be checking your credit, do it for three days or four days a youon't have to worry about it. they'll freeze it for you. >> we talked earlier about the scam season. it's become one of the top complaints that attorneys general are gettingll over the
6:27 am
country. >> absolutely. and this is y --'re desperate. if you have thousands of dollars in debt,-ou really it's overwhelming. so oftentimes you will reach out companies. you see them advertised all over tv, all over facebook everywhere, and it says, we can negotiate a settlement for you, wean low ur your debt. here ooh is a couple things you need to know. in 20 the ftc made it illegal for any company to charge you an up front fee. so if you get a company that says the need to charge you a fee, hang up. you don't want toeal with them. if you decide to use a debt relief company, a couple of things you need to know. it's going to cost you. it will take years for this particular debt to go away. most often they start with $7,500 up to $25,000 in debt, and you are paying afee, but you're going to watch your credit score tank because the
6:28 am
first thing you is stop paying all of your credit cards and so it goes i righto delinquency because these companies then say they'll negotiate and say, listen, getting something is better than nothing. that's how they reaa settl settleme settlement. meantime for seven years this sits on your r creditort and it tanks. the best thing you can do is do it yourself and do it for ee. negotiate with your credit card companies, lower rates, t to open up a zero percent credit card if you can for 1 month8 mo. there are so many things you can do. thehi best is don't use your credit cards. use cash. really good advice. >> those things can disrupt your life for such a long, long time. finally, if you frequeny usehe memorial bridge, work t fix and restore the bridge is progressing nicely piece by piece. right now tf center the bridge is going throughy extremel careful cleaning and restoration. adam, you could say it' getting
6:29 am
more than a makeover. lifeng a new lease on >> the interesting thing is, yes, it's a bridge. but the national parks service will tell you it's a memorial. it's a memorial to our veterans and symbiotic to the north and south and it's being treated. it has to be cleaned. they kind of sliced it apart piece by piece very carefully d it's all been labeled. the granite, which is from north carolina and is 90 years old is being shipped up to this yard in northern marlboro piece by piece and it will goack i the same spot. >> that's fascinating. >> it is. they're doing half of the bridge o fall and then they'll do the other hal the bridge. there was a strukt result issue. we went inside and saw the steel. it's paper thin. it took an o act congress to get the money appropriated to get the bridge fixed, which is
6:30 am
amazing because it's not only important to our r but to the country. the bridge itself is getting fixed. it's interesting to see theak paing detail they're going through. little chips are being repaired an b putk in place. >> meanwhile the paying people who nmally use the bridge are having to find other ways to get around. >> goes to the infrastructure of our country. for your a long time we haven't kept up with the maintenance needs. it's a good thing it's getting fixed. no pain no gain. >> adam tuss and susan hogan, thk you. that's reporters' notebook.

6:40 am
they're creating some serious divides among democrats on the hill. >> that's right. this week the focus was on
6:41 am
israel, but over the past few months tensions have been bubbling over. a lot to talk about? a lot to talk about. of course, the main man is here to talk about it, chuck todd. chuck, what does this mean for the presidential electn in 2020 and for a possibly candidate like joe biden jumping in? >> i think you see a basic fight. you have this younger proyes, sirrive left who says your way traditional democrat s got us donald trump. they say, whoa, whoa, whoa, did you watch 2018? our way won all the voters. that's the larger fight. so then every little thing that happens is sort of a part ofr that lar fight. so you saw the issue with israel, part of that larger fight. biden versus bernie in some ways, part of that larger fight. so i think that's really what we're seeing here. i think those on the lef see
6:42 am
the progressive opportunity and they think there's never been a weakeren potential opp in donald trump, and so that means you can get a progressive candidate hiected. i the moderates are sitting there says, what are you talking about? why do you want to flift with a potential second term for donald yump? >> saw that in the last election. >> they did. remember all those alysts who said, they'd better be careful. he may never win. >> that'spl why p say joe biden. >> good luck bernie. >> rit. >> a saf bet in that he's got like the guts, if you will, u t against a donald trump. he sees it. here's the problem for joe biden. the best asset, he's been in the mainstream for 50 years. the biggest liability is he's been in the mainstream for0 years. when you'll hear hisab comments t bussing, the crime bill of 20 years ago, bussing, 50 years
6:43 am
ago, itnds out of touch to today's ear. did he say anything then tha was considered controversial then? not really. but we're in a different time. how does that play. that goes to the argument that the younger democrats are saying, you conditional -- you know, yu'ou've got to move forward. he's a 20th century democrat. it is a different party. >> it's going to beci fting to see it all come together. let's talk about michael flcohen br his testimony talking about the pardon and what was happening here. between he and the president, it's hardo make sense with what's going >>on. look. make michael cohen the first biest, if you will, their first big witness to bring befo -- to make the case against the president. yes, he's winning the credibility contest or did at a firsinst the president, but
6:44 am
this is a matter of not the most credible ople. and do think the president realized seeing the poll that show cohen more credible than him and they've been undermining cohen's credibility, it doesn't help tpresident, but it lowers cohen down a little bit. i do thinkt puts democrats in a lower spot. you can't take michael cohen's word on anything.e you hav to take it. >> he has his own history. but asar as a pardon, it seems less likely the president will pardon him. >> my gut on manafort tries to do a commuting of his sentence versus us, butlet's s what the totality of manafort's scene is. >> sure. >> he does have another court hearing nex week that could add more years to his prison term. >> ex htly. >> if were to pardon -- ett's say hypoally, if he were to part p manafort, is it state of new york --
6:45 am
>> it's possible the state of new york could bring charges and at would complicate it more, but in the meantime, he could be outf jail. i think he's concerned about one thing, getting out of jail. >> what else will you tal about? >> we've got liz chaney, one of the few who voted against the resolution. we'll talk about that. and adamschiff. >> all right. good show coming up. chuck, we appreciate you stopping by. we remind you "meet the press" coming up every sunday right here at 10:30 after "news4 today." chuck, thank you so much. a little closer to arlington, there's code word spreading around the bars there. >> it's part of an effort toeo keepe safe and prevent sexual assad.

6:46 am
