5:00 am
as you get ready to head out in dublin and our temperatures starting out in the low 60s, headed into the low 80s already by 11:00 today, and look at that, we're going to reach into the upper 80s, but before noon, so i'll talk more about that coming up. mike, you're getting a look at the roads and so far so good? >> so far so green on the sensors, a smooth flow. we are watching that report 880 southbound at around marina, a container truck reportedly caught on fire. it may be affecting the off-ramp but the fire has been put out. a smooth drive toward the bay bridge where we have two cash lanes that have yet to open. back to you. >> thanks, mike. right now you see live inside the chambers, where robert mueller, former investigator, will be investigated by congress there. right now we're waiting for that to start in about 30 minutes. >> that's right, he'll testify about his report on the
5:01 am
investigation and the involvement of president trump's 2016 campaign. the highly anticipated testimony gets under way in less than 30 minutes and you can watch it all live right here on nbc bay area. scott mcgrew joins us early this morning to tell us what to watch out for. scott, i know already a surprise for us, but it won't be just mueller. >> that's right, a last-minute addition. robert mueller's right-hand man, top deputy in the investigation, aaron zebley, will join him at the table. we had expected muler to appear alone. mueller will be asked to recount two years' worth of details from the investigation so perhaps it's not surprising he asked for help. zebley may also testify. mule her been very up front he was not going to say much. remember this. >> any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report. it contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the
5:02 am
decisions we made. we chose those words carefully and the work speaks for itself. >> so mueller was going to be tough to get anything new from. zebley we have less of a read on. now democrats are betting even if we hear nothing new, hearing it on television will finally get americans' attention. polls show only one in ten americans ever read the report. seeing it on tv could be more influential. just look what happened when attorney general bill barr gave the world his impression of the mueller report, before anybody could actually read it. many people took barr's interpretation as gospel and believed the report clears the president. it does nothing of the sort, but barr said it on television. so if this is all you saw of the mueller report, you may think the report cleared the president. the truth is much more nuanced. summarizing 448 pages in a couple of bullet points the report says the russians
5:03 am
interfered, the trump campaign knew about it, benefitted from it, but the special counsel lacked the evidence to prove conspiracy in court. it did establish the trump administration impeded and interfered with the investigation, but mueller's team concluded it was not permitted to prosecute a sitting president. here's mueller again from that press conference in may. >> charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider. >> mueller would go on to say "if we had the confidence, the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so." democrats want him to say all this again, driving this point home on television. they're looking at history and what happened to richard nixon. nixon was still reasonably popular among his base at the start of the waterfwaet heariga in '73, as americans watched and heard on television, attitudes changed. there are a lot of differences between then and now. the watergate hearings were
5:04 am
surprisingly bipartisan. the what did he do and the republicans. the hearings lapsed weeks. today president trump has about the same approval rating but likely will be v is scheduled to last just five hours. you can watch the testimony right here on nbc bay area in 25:47. san francisco's federal court will once again be the epicenter of the battle over immigration today. activists are asking for temporary restraining order surrounding a new policy aimed at stopping almost all immigrants from applying for asylum in the u.s./mexico border. they're now required to first pursue safe haven in a third country, which through they will travel on their way to the u.s. the requirement was announced by the trump administration last week. protesters are expected to building at 8:00 the legal battle to rescue
