7:05 am

7:20 am
because of the giants game, i think we will have lot more people going in the middle of the day. and this afternoon everyone who leaves will be joined by about 30,000 giants fans. i realize not everyone is leaving at the same time, but you will have a substantial number of people coming in for the game and will leave and will make it more crowded. take the train or the fairy but don't rely on the roads for all of that congestion. 880 is now better that they cleared the accident near hagan berger. 880 s. of that, hayward to union city is slow. silicon valley commute has traffic moderately heavy on all the approaches. no major problems on the peninsula but dunbarton bridge is a little busier than the san mateo bridge. those mid-day crossings are okay. keep in mind that today san francisco will be a lot more congested on this day. what about the forecast for today's game? let's go to steve.

7:31 am
another hour and a half and it will be gone. there's not a lot there. i say mostly sunny. it has nothing to do with the fog, it's higher clouds. 70 degrees and maybe even warmer throughout the game. first pitch 70. highs building back in from colorado and new mexico. funneling in a few high clouds to the south. that's why i put that in there. mild to warm on the coast but mild to hot. warm to hot, i should say for inland areas pixma the temperature today will be in the 90s for many. calistoga 97. redwood city 86. capitola 78. even on the coast it looks pretty good. you can see the monsoon moisture around the flow of the high. some of that might director crossed to us. it is moving across the sierra and into southern california. there is very little fog. thunderstorms popping up and dying down at night. i expect those again today. 85 and south lake tahoe and around reno. upper 90s to your 100. 60s for us. tracy almost 70 already. already upper 50s for some of.
7:32 am
60s for other. woodside 50 to. 50 for stanford. they will be about 90s on the high side today. a few high clouds. high tomorrow a little cooler. warmer for most 70s, 80s, and 90s. bay bridge or something else? we have a crash on 680 getting out of pleasanton heading down to san jose, which is a very popular route. southbound 680. i will put it on the map so you can see traffic building. it is probably getting worse because a crash was is reported about 10 minutes ago. it is right there. this backup is going to grow. let me show you the picture. it is at a standstill. normally, we look at this picture without a lot of slow traffic. this crash is definitely affecting traffic but don't be surprised by this. you might want to use 880. parking is bridge to the mac mays, bay bridge a tough day all day in and out because of the giants game and other things going on in san francisco. let's go back to the desk. former special counsel
7:33 am
robert mueller is continuing his testimony before the house judiciary committee. democrats and republicans on the house judiciary committee are question mueller about his investigation into russian interference in the 2016 election. >> allie rasmussen is closely watching all of this in our newsroom. you are back with the details. >> a brief five minute break wrapped up a short time ago and now congressional members are back in the hearing room. they are asking questions of former special counsel robert mueller. we have heard mueller say many times during his testimony that has been going on for about two hours now answers like i will let my report answer that or i will defer to what the report says. any question that tries to get mueller to elaborate or give an opinion he really sticks to the script but mueller said earlier he would be sticking to the information that was already written and already out there in that for hundred 50 page mueller report. there have been no big surprises with any of his answers so far. dealer taking questions five minutes at a time from all 41
7:34 am
members of the house judiciary committee. we are looking at the lineup. they are going by order of seniority. democrat and republicans alternately. we believe that in the next 10 minutes or so east bay congressman eric swalwell will be asking him questions. earlier south bay congressman bill locklin was one of the first to ask questions. they are focusing on the question of obstruction of justice and whether president trump tried to commit or president trump committed a crime trying to stop mueller's investigation. mueller says what was artie stated in his report, the president was not exonerated of any crimes but there was not sufficient evidence against him. mueller also consumed his interpretation of department of justice policy against indicting a sitting president. >> you found evidence as you lay out in your report that the president wanted to fire you because you were investigating him for obstruction of justice. isn't that correct? >> that's what it says and report. yes. i stand by the report. >> 180 pages, 180 pages about
7:35 am
decisions that were reached. about potential crimes that weren't charged. >> as you can hear from the tone of the question, as some of the questions have taken lyrical and partisan turns with trying to highlight concerns about obstruction of justice and republicans highlighting that no charges came from this report. you can see former special counsel robert mueller is still in the hot seat taking questions from democrats and republicans on the house judiciary committee. this portion of the testimony is supposed to last a total of three hours. we have about another hour to go. then there will be a half an hour break and then starting at 9:00 our time mueller will testify before the house, a different house committee and will take another two hours of questions without. this is part of a long day for mueller and some of those congressional representatives. we will monitor the hearing and have another update in about 30 minutes. reporting live with
7:36 am
fox 2 news. here's a look at the schedule for today's hearings in the house of representatives. the judiciary committee hearing is going on right now. we were here questioning for me >> congressman eric swalwell but he is on that committee. the session focusing on obstruction of justice. at 9:00 both swalwell and san mateo congresswoman jackie spear will question robert mueller as members of the intelligence committee. again, that focus will be on russia's interference in the 2016 election. a lot is going on now. joining us to talk about this anticipated hearing uc hastings law professor david levine. >> good morning. >> no real bombshells just yet. >> it depends on who the audience is. it seems to me that if you have followed this as closely as the three of us have you will say, okay, things we have seen before if you have read the book of the report. no new news. if you are somebody who maybe wasn't paying so much attention
7:37 am
and if the detail, that mr. mueller has confirmed, because that's largely what is going on here, didn't you say such and such, there is some pretty stunning things there. i think we are just used to it now, because these things have come out in the report before. we have talked about so many of them.>> one of them involves the former white house counsel don mcgann. >> why. i think that's one of the most shocking things. if you are looking for a strong piece of evidence on obstruction of justice i think that is certainly one of them. look what happened. there is mr. mcgann, white house counsel, testifying to mr. mueller's committee that mr. trump asked him to get mueller fired by talking to rosenstein. when that came out in the newspaper trump asked mcgann to write something that would dispute that. in other words, to lie about it. again refused. really, the only reason that the crime didn't take place is
7:38 am
because mcgann stood up and refused to do certain things. if you have not been following this that is really, really shocking and terrible behavior by the president. >> let's talk about the question from lawmakers. the democrats and republicans tailoring their wording to make their point. was of the answers we are getting we arty read on the pages of the report itself. >> they knew going in that mr. mueller had set the standards by himself as well as directed tran10 >> i'm not going to say more than what's in the report. >> how to get around that? you get him to confirm that didn't you say such and such. we have these split screens where mueller is saying yes, indeed. the words on the piece of paper , yes. that's in my report. isn't that true? >> yes it is. >> again, if you haven't been following i think that's pretty effective. on the republican side they are playing a very different game. what they're trying to do is discredit the whole portion, the obstruction of justice portion, by saying the origin
7:39 am
of it was somehow tainted and mr. mueller had conflicted people on his team of people who didn't like the present. that sort of thing. none of that takes away from the fact that there is a stunning evidence that was presented in that report. even if there is something about the origins that are somewhat murky. i think will hear something about that. it doesn't take away from the fact that there is stunning evidence that report. everybody should read it. you can buy it or read it online for free. everybody should decide for themselves what's in there. >> mueller started out by saying , briefly, the president said he was exonerated. i'm saying you were not. is that correct? >> that's true. report says it and mr. mueller has reported that in a press conference and again today. if we could have exonerated the president with respect to obstruction we would have. we couldn't so we didn't. >> david levine, thank you for joining us. go get a cup of coffee and keep watching that hearing be back here in about an hour.

8:16 am
it's a matter of moving things forward. this is what i have been trying to do on a regular basis, cut bureaucracies so we can get these projects done. dedicated bike lanes, increase in citations, all of the city, but especially in the most dangerous core door. we have seen increases in the number of citations we issued, but it's not just about citations and in the structure improvement, it's also about behavior but it's also about people out there who are driving fast, who are, basically, running red lights and stop signs and doing other things that really create an issue for public safety. we have all had a role to play in balancing things and making sure we keep our streets safe. >> along those lines, i know the state legislature has the final say on these issues, but
8:17 am
do you agree with lowering speed limits in san francisco, adding more red light and speed enforcement cameras? >> of course i do. and to be clear, even before i was mayor one of the things i pushed for on octavia boulevard was adding red light cameras, which we were able to do, because there also has to be consequences for bad behavior. we have to do more to try to change behavior, so people understand why it's important that they obey the stop signs and the speed limits and all of these things that are put in place to not only keep the people on the streets safe, but to also keep people in their vehicles safe. >> when i'm in your city, especially with my children, i look three or four times before across the street. do you feel safe crossing streets in your own city? >> i do feel safe. yes. i'm the same way. i look both ways, i look around, but sometimes mistakes happen. sometimes things happen where drivers are going too fast, their running lights and you are in the intersection. behavior is important to address citations and
8:18 am
accountability are important to address but more important, i will say also notice there are people who venture out into the streets without looking. really, it's all around behavior that's an important thing. awareness and really pushing forward so that we can, our ultimate goal is we want to keep people safe. the only way to do it is to work harder at making sure everyone is held accountable for public safety on our streets >> i will mention quickly, the most recent pedestrian death we saw in the tenderloin district, a couple within the crosswalk when they were hit by a couple that was said to be speeding. let's move onto another one of your pet projects, public transit. of the trees center opening up and month and a partnership with muni to keep people coming and going from that center. >> did you call that a pet project? that's not a pet project. that is an important project. that's an important investment
8:19 am
in making sure that we are cutting back on the congestion that we know people are frustrated by in san francisco. i launched a group of folks together. i brought a group of people together to really talk about what is our plan to make sure that when chase center opens we don't make things worse than they already are. providing free public transportation, making it easier for people to just jump on muni and get to the chase arena is exactly one great example of reducing congestion on our streets. we want people to bike to chase arena. we want them to get on public transportation. we want them to walk but we want them to do everything that they can to not only take care of the environment, which all of these things do, but more poorly, it helps cut down on congestion significantly. >> it also pays you from paying $60 to park for the evening. what you think about supervisor peskin's proposal to charge
8:20 am
$.25 for a disposable cup when you buy coffee in the city? >> i think san francisco has really been a leader in the environment and trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions but a lot of great initiatives that we put forward. a couple of years ago on the board i passed the styrofoam band. we work with small businesses. we did a phase in. we looked at alternative to making sure the prices are right and manufacturers can produce them so the small businesses weren't significantly impacted. i think we are proposing anything of that nature so we need to make sure we are working with our small business community and other folks in our city, environmental leaders, to try to make sure it's implemented in the most efficient way so it doesn't have the kind of impact that may be problematic for our small business community. >> it sounds like you might support it, but not 100% just yet. >> yes. >> okay.
8:21 am
a couple of cups of coffee for you this morning. thank you for joining us once again. >> thank you. i will use my recycled cup. but i know you will. and a recyclable straw and all the rest. but always good to have the mayor with us. let's get caught up with the traffic. ms. we have more than one mess out there. we have this one but things are getting a little better. they just opened up some of the lanes. you can see the big difference in what was there before but now they are opening up the lanes. the traffic is going to be busy. we still have a huge backup here , so it's going to take a while before that backup dissipates. 880 is going to be slow. you can see traffic is beginning to get better. also, looking at the bay bridge we have traffic coming into san francisco. the giants game at 12:45 first pitch. a popular game that will affect the traffic in san francisco all day. 101 at to 80 in san francisco has a crash blocking lanes and making traffic flow. also, looking at 880 that traffic is slow. we have had a bunch of slow
8:22 am
traffic there. we are looking at some of the south bay commutes. we have had slow traffic in a lot a spot. by the way, marin county southbound 101 in corte madera is clearing an accident near the larkspur exit that has traffic flow over the hill from san rafael. let's bring steve in with today's weather. >> thank you very much. mostly clear skies. a little fog, but by about 10:00 i think most of it will be gone. it favors the marin coast more than anywhere else. hot for many. a few high clouds this afternoon. i don't think that will stop anything from temperature warming up for the cubs and giants. sunny to mostly sunny and 70 degrees. 70 in the city everywhere including oakland, livermore, san jose, santa rosa. all with temperature going above average for this time of year. getting into the low to mid 90s. as a high pressure builds into the four corners it doesn't take long to warm up.

criticize him in an effort to get him to give a heated response. this is the only time he really showed any emotion or irritation in response to criticism about his investigation and report. >> i don't think you all reviewed a report that is as thorough, as fair, as consistent as report that we have in front of us.>> remaining calm and stoic and unemotional through most of his testimony so far. as you can see, not afraid to defend himself when criticize. democrats have been focusing on the question of obstruction of justice and whether president trump committed a crime trying to stop miller's investigation. miller said it was arty stated in his report that the president was not exonerated of any crime, but there was not sufficient evidence against him. mueller also said that he believes the department of justice policy prevented him from indicting a sitting president. :was there sufficient evidence to convict president trump or
8:35 am
anyone else with obstruction of justice? >> we did not make that calculation. >> how could you not have made the calculation? >> the olc opinion indicates that we cannot indict a sitting president. one of the tools the prosecutor would you is not there. that could you charge the president with a crime after he left office? >> yes >> you believe he committed the, you could charge the president of the united states with obstruction of justice after he left office? >> yes. >> we have her mueller respond to questions with answers like i will let my report answer that or i will defer to the report. any time a question tries to get him to elaborate or give regulation. he has kept his answer limited and has refused to really elaborate in response to a lot of those questions or give any opinion. we don't expect that to be any different in the next round of questions. once this hearing with the house judiciary committee wrapped up, and you can still see is underway, mueller is scheduled to testify before a different health committee, the house intelligence committee and the focus of that questioning session is supposed
8:36 am
to be about russian influence in our 2016 election and the investigation into that. once this wraps up they will be taking a half hour break and starting that second round of testimony for another two hours later this afternoon. live in the newsroom with ktvu fox news. >> joining us now to talk about this hearing about law professor david levine. back for month we have been seeing the present tweeting and hearing him say no collusion, no obstruction. robert mueller is not backing that up. >> absolutely not. the report says quite clearly with respect to obstruction if we could have exonerated the president we would have done so. that is a far shot from saying no evidence of obstruction. with respect to collusion, what mueller is careful to say is there is insufficient evidence of conspiracy. that, again, is very different
8:37 am
from saying there was none. that for this democratic impeachment caucus, i guess you could say, would you agree this is a make or break moment for the democrats as they try to convince fellow democrats on capitol hill as well as america on whether or not to impeach president trump? >> i don't know if it can make or break the government, but it is a very important step. what they are trying to do is to get americans to focus on this. people's mind to may not be made up. people who have gone through substantial parts of the report. for them, for the democrats who try to say look at the evidence that is here, should we go forward with more? >> why is it not? for some to say this is it. the report is a paper. for those who didn't read the report television is a powerful moment. if you're still not convinced what's next? >> i think what they could do is they could decide to bring in some of these witnesses and push, remember, one of the things the administration has been doing is giving the stiff arm to all of these committees. even though that could be an impeachable offense for obstruction of justice the wheels of justice take time in terms of getting subpoenas
8:38 am
enforced. what they could do is bring in witnesses to back this up. to bring in him again, hope hicks, these other people to say what did you see? the report says you said before xyz but now we want to talk to you about it. that could also be powerful. it is the administration that is stopping them from proceeding. >> president trump said yesterday he wasn't going to watch the hearing. how did he react to what's coming from today's hearing? >> i think what he would do is, he should, from his side, he ought to be looking at his supporters, the republicans doing their best to say there is nothing here or the investigators were conflicted or that the origins were very murky. that all fits into what he is told and what he would like to tell. i assume he will pay attention to those parts and seek his allies in those ways >> i wonder if this all comes up in the debate next week? we
8:39 am
have a couple of democratic debates but do you think this is an issue? >> absolutely. you've got members of the senate judiciary committee who are running for president. three of them will be in those debates. there and i'll have an opportunity to question mr. mueller now because this is on the house side, but, absolutely that will come up. >> david levine. we have one more round coming up with you a little later. specs you later. live coverage of the robert mueller testimony is happening right now on ktvu plus and ktvu.com and the ktvu facebook page. we will bring you all of the days news, weather, and traffic right here on fox 2. we have lauren blanchard in washington and we will bring back professor david levine in a few minutes for more analysis in the studio. buying a new condo for $177,000 but how these units could be sold at rock-bottom prices. a federal judge hearing arguments challenging the strip new administration world that
