7:10 am
that was first featured in our "bay area proud" series.
7:11 am
7:12 am
welcome back. we are joined in the studio with our political analyst larry gerst gerston. welcome. it is time for our weekly chat with chuck todd, moderator of preston sullivan. thanks for joining us this morning. >> happy to. >> happy, thanks so much. chuck, this past week nancy pelosi announced an official impeachment inquiry. what do you think really has changed and what comes next? >> i think what's changed is democrats know what they're focused on here. the general calls for impeachment, mueller related, what about this charge, what about that charge? what changed is there is an act he did as president that is self-contained, the mueller report was always about other people on trump's behalf doing
7:13 am
things, not about him per se. this is about him, and i think like the nixon tapes did once you heard them it sortf changed a lot of views when it came to i think reading near transcript, not official but close enough, when you read it, you heard the president's voice. it was phrases that you know, so it was him doing it and i think that is what changed pelosi's calculation because frankly it's why you've seen even the public shifting into something happened here, something deserves investigating here. >> great point. >> chuck, assuming the impeachment goes through we're talking about a tiny issue in terms of the short period of time between now or when it ends and the election. how does that work together or does it? >> well, larry, i've been skeptical that is does, but do you realize that 1998 the clinton impeachment actually moved very fast even though is
7:14 am
started slow. the starr report took forever. once they got to the point of the formal impeachment inquiry which began in early october in a four-month period, they opened the inquiry, filed the articles of impeachment in november and december. they had the trial in january and the verdict in february. that's about the pace i think this has to be on for this not to get with too much interfering with the 020 election but larry, at some point, you'll hear adam schiff say this today, there is going to be a point where they may suddenly look at the calendar and die they don't have time to do this and sort of not have it impact the president. >> sticking with this whole idea of the ukraine event and what it's led to, a former vice president joe biden of course is in the bullies eye for the trump and ukraine defense. is the attention that biden receives from president trump likely to help, hurt him or have
7:15 am
animpact? >> yes. i think it's all of the above. and honestly, i think that's what, you know, look you talk to all these democratic presidential campaigns, all not sure how this is going to work but the fear is this, when you talk to the candidates not named warren or biden, the fear is this race freezes in place sort of like a caution flag at a stock car race where you're waiting to see what it looks looks like post impeachment and we engage and in reality, it's what does biden look like in january, right, what happens? i think that's the unknown. we're going to find out how much does biden engage in this time period, how much does he not engage, does the lack of focus on warren strengthen her buss she doesn't get at tack we thought was coming had she had a normal fall campaign. there is he a lot of things we don't know but the biggest thing is what will joe biden's political standing look at the start of 2020? give me that answer and we'll
7:16 am
know for sure whether he'll be the nominee or not. >> we'll wait and see, three more months, thanks, chuck, as always, for your insight. we appreciate it. join chuck this morning for "meet the press," he'll have a live interview with house representative adam schiff, also an exclusive interview with representative steve scalise and exclusive interview with the foreign minister of iran. tune in to "meet the press" at 8:00 right here after this newscast. stick with us. larry will be back in about 40 minutes for our weekly political segment, look at president trump's dealings with the president of ukraine. you're going to lay out a sort of time line leading up to the impeachment inquiry so we look forward to getting that insight. thanks, larry. see you soon. turning oother news a comeback story 24 years in the making, just yesterday santa clara held its first parade of champions, since 1995, more than

7:47 am
this point so quickly? to us seems quickly. this seems to have unfolded been five days. >> let me reface my remarks saying this is serious business. this is not just another issue of the day, it's serious no matter how it turns out. how did it happen, with claims that president trump pressured the ukrainian president for dirt on former vice president biden. if true, that would be a crime, according to american law. the president denied any misdeeds. pressure increased on president trump to release a transcript of the conversation within a couple of days and so he did so, provided an account of the conversation, not a transcript, but at least an account that showed he actually asked zelenskiy for help to harm biden. meanwhile another allegation surfaced, this time that the president had withheld at least 250 million, it's closer to 400 million now in military aid to
7:48 am
ukraine pending ukraine's help on trump's request. there is the chain and it doesn't sound too pretty. >> as you're saying it, it is serious but does it rise to the level of impeachment? >> yes, that's the great question and one we need to ask over and over again. whatever the merits here, kira, these claims might have died down, might have died down over time. a day or so, the whistle-blower said to the intelligence committees inspector general the nine-page letter you talked about with claims by at least a half dozen white house employees about several trump transgressions. the inspector general by the way is the designated government employee for handling claims of poor government, malfeasance, any illegalities things like that. at its core, the letter contended that trump used his relationship with zelenskiy to help himself at the expense of america's national security. that's serious business. the whistle-blower also alleged that trump covered up his activities by moving the official transcript of the
7:49 am
ukrainian discussion to a top secret computer available only to a few people. the inspector general, a trump employee, by the way, deemed the claim so credible and urgent, given their detail and independent corroboration by several others. since then, democratic support for an impeachment inquiry soared from 144 members on monday to 224 members on friday, speaker pelosi until now slow to back any inquiry now says it's time to really move forward. that's how this thing has moved. >> quickly, what does it include, who does it include? what happens this week? >> here's the layout. over the next few weeks i think six or so weeks perhaps six committees in the house will delve into various elements of the whistle-blower claims. most of the heavy lifting done by the intelligence committee given the focus in the ukraine area. the committee is chaired by
7:50 am
southern california's adam schiff and local representative jackie speier among its members. >> how do all the committees determine what to do next? >> the committee also sit down and interview, compose several people who were cited if that report as well as others. we don't know exactly whether the whistle-blower will be interviewed because of concerns for his or her identity and safety, should an interview occur. if it does, it will be in closed session. if the committees determine there is sufficient evidence to impeach the president, the speaker will then ask for an impeachment vote which requires a simple majority to forward to the senate a trial. the trial would be overseen at the senate by chief justice of the supreme court but let's remember much has to be learned because such a move is even considered. and if the trial occurs, it takes a two-thirds vote in the senate to convict. that's never happened. >> still some ifs. wish we could talk more as

it is 7:53. pour yourself a cozy cup of coffee. it's going to be a cold day ahead by california standards. san francisco beautiful start right now, clear skies over the golden gate bridge. current temperatures 53 degrees. you probably noticed it was very gusty last night, especially if you were hanging out around the
7:54 am
coastline, that's because the cold front dropped down. notice how it cleared out the skies. no cloud cover right now. beautiful view of san jose there. 49 degrees right now in downtown san jose. make sure to bundle up as you head out the door. meanwhile throughout the afternoon, let's talk about your temperatures right now 39 degrees in napa, so it's very cold and your daytime highs will eventually warm up, but there will be running a few degrees cooler compared to yesterday. so it's going to be breezy. 67 degrees in oakland. 68 up through napa. down through the south bay we're talking upper 60s for san jose. 69 degrees and yes, i have the word showers in there. the reason for that is because we have a trough that's going to drop down and it's going to bring the chance of seeing some showers mainly for far napa, sonoma counties and the east bay so for that reason we have our very own mobile doppler radar storm ranger up and scanning. you may have seen all of the warnings that came out of sacramento from an intense system that passed through,
7:55 am
triggering some tornado warnings. satellite radar things are shaping out in through the late evening hours, so let's look at the hour by hour outlook. this is your time line right here. shower chances especially for the mid i would say 5:00, 7:00 hour look at some of the pockets are rain, again very insignificant rain totals, a lot of areas may not see it, but as we kind of fast forward this time line we get a couple of pockets of showers that pushed through so it might be just enough to where you notice it. it causes a sheen on the roads, through tomorrow, early morning through midday and it will clear out and be breezy. another big story was that sierra snow. this is a current look right now at tahoe north star using our weather underground cameras. th is fsh powder. they have a lake wind advisory in effect and winter weather advisory. the reason being it's going to be gusty in your drive up there and then we're tracking more snow headed into tonight. let's look at that time line through the next couple of hours. right now we're seeing a couple
7:56 am
snowflakes. temperature its 30s by about 8:00. we'll notice the snowfall picking up overnight into early tomorrow morning. if you had plans to head out early on monday morning, be careful. that winter weather advisory will be in place through 5:00 p.m. tomorrow. it's going to be gusty locally. snow near 5,000 feet. not a crazy amount of accumulation but it's pretty impressive, considering how early we are. we're not even in winter yet. over the next seven days, again a chance, slight chance of early morning showers into monday for san francisco and then notice by wednesday, our temperatures start to go back up into the 70s because we get another system that rolls through but all in all we'll remain pretty cool and comfortable, certainly through today and into monday. a chilly start on tuesday, we're talking 30s which may trigger a couple of freeze advisories in the far napa sonoma area so definitely you asked for it and fall has arrived. >> fall has surely arrived. then we'll be back up to 85 on
