if you want to know where the cool kids have been vaping, it's not at school. it's on instagram where you can't officially advertise e-cigarettes, but if you're a popular influencer, you can get paid to spread smoke. >> there's a huge influence. brands know that. that's why they make a lot of money promoting these products. >> reporter: that's about to change. instagram and facebook say they'll brand influencers showing them vaping, any tobacco products, or guns, a move the social media giant said will close a loophole in their advertising policy. doctors call it an important step. >> young people live on their phones all day long. >> reporter: trying to make darngs behavior seem less cool. >> really, young people's fascination with vaping and what makes it a youth cultural phenomenon has been largely driven by social media. >> there's a ton of followers

live in a democracy and that we have tried to do everything we can to make sure that that is their reality. we'll hear from our chairman and then take three questions. i'm now honored to yield with great appreciation and respect the distinguished chair of the judiciary committee jerry nadler. >> thank you. the framers preserve the powers of impeachment against our democratic institutions. president trump used the powers of his office for his own personal political gain to d detriment of the national security of the united states. that is the very definition of an impeachable offense. when congress began to investigate president trump's wrongdoing, he engaged an unprecedent pattern of obstruction. that, too, is why the people power exists. a president who subverts both
our elections and our constitutional system of checks and balances puts himself above the law and it is congress's duty to hold any president accountable. it gives us no pleasure, no pleasure to stand here today. president trump's conduct has put our next elect at risk. president trump's behavior puts the integrity of our constitutional order at risk. and president trump's continued actions puts the rules of law at risk. they gave us these powers for exactly this reason and for the fulfillment of our oath, today we took action to hold president trump accountable for the serious and undisputed risk he poses to our free and fair elections and to the separation of powers that safeguards our liberty. >> you've been listening live to a news conference in washington, d.c. members of congress led by house speaker nancy pelosi, also congressman nadler there

there. >> now thieves who are caught face a punishment. south bay assembly man evan lowe introduced a bill to raise the crime to the level of breaking and entering and as high as a felony. but nbc bay area learned that the bill was blocked and being reworked after a suspect's prior criminal record as well as the value of the stolen package need to be considered more. lowe, rosen, and police officers we talked to were disappointed the law wouldn't be red ready for this holiday season. he put out a decoy package and caught a thief in minutes. >> any effort that helps fight crime is great. >> it would be nice if we could have something changed maybe sooner than later just because it sounds like it's getting worse. >> reporter: well, lowe's office
says the bill should be reworked and ready for consideration by mid-january, and if it passes, we'll see what kind of punishment it has especially next holiday season. live in milpitas, robert handa, nbc bay area news. certainly not a good place to find yourself in, left without a roof over your head, but that's what many are facing. tonight they're protesting and pledging to stay put. nbc bay area's jodi hernandez is live with where the protest took place. jodi. >> reporter: residents say they feel like they're being kicked to the curb. while many are in walkers and wheelchairs, they say they're not going to leave without a fight. >> they threw us under the bus. >> reporter: that's how 73-year-old vince dunn feels after the care home he lives at said they were closing its

the ones forcing people to leave. brook dale said they couldnd find another operator to tack over, so they're selling the property. dunn said he's not budging. he pledges to stay put despite the impending closure. he said seniors shouldn't be treated like throw-aways. >> they should treated us better than this. we're old folks. 've all contributed to society in many ways. >> reporter: brook dale has not yet sent out official written notices to residents. 're waiting for the approval. residents may have until the end of february, perhaps even march to move out. brook dale will help out residents in any way possible including helping out with moving expenses. reporting live in san pablo, i'm jodi hernandez, nbc bay area news. >> jeff ranieri is with us now.

we'll have a chance of that for the north bay, east bay, and the ground is wet from recent rains. it creates condensation, tiny water droplets known as fog. be on the watch for dense areas of fog tomorrow morning. it will be chilly tomorrow morning. 46 here in san jose. 46 in napa. 48 in novato, and let's head back to the futurecast. we could get a little bit of sun breaking out in peninsula, the east bay and south bay. all eyes right now in our weather department i can tell you are trained on this weekend as we have a brand-new storm system lining up. we'll talk more about the totals, the timing of this. we'll have that coming up in 25 minutes. >> we'll see you shortly. up next, a joyride of a different kind. a teenager in the central valley who stole an airplane and then crashed it. i'm tom steyer and i approve this message.
climate is the number 1 priority. i would declare a state of emergency on day 1. congress has never passed an important climate bill, ever. this is a problem that continues to get worse. i've spent a decade fighting and beating oil companies... stopping pipelines... stopping fossil fuel plants, ensuring clean energy across the country. how are we going to pull this country together? we take on the biggest challenge in history, we save the world and do it together.
a frightening scene in fresno. a teenager stole an airplane and then crashed it. it happened last night. a 17-year-old girl ran away from home. police say she broke into the fresno airport and was able to start that small plane that you see there. she then crashed it into the building right there on the property. that plane was never airborne. no injuries. that girl is now in custody. well, christmas got off toon early start for families in the east bay. four newly restored cars were

impeachment, abuse of power and obstruction of justice. >> we take you to alice barr. >> reporter: good evening. in the end, donald trump is now impeached. it's the third time in american history, but even as that black mark was entered onto his leg circumstance he was at a rally feeling pretty good about his election next time around. tonight donald trump becoming the third american president to become impeached. >> article 1 is adopted. >> reporter: the final vote split along party lines, every democrat voting for articles of impeachment, abuse of power and obstruction of justice. >> what is at risk is the very idea of america. >> reporter: every republican voted against. >> he was president today, he'll be president tomorrow, and he'll
be president when this is over. >> reporter: as history unfolds in washington, the president is in the swing state of michigan, campaigning for a second term. >> it doesn't really feel like we're being impeached. the country is doing better than ever before. we did nothing wrong. >> reporter: it's in sharp contrast to the fiery debate on capitol hill. >> the house will come to order. >> reporter: the house will go down fighting even though they knew they had them impeached. democrats insisting the vote was their constitutional duty and they're safeguarding democracy for the future. >> when you see something that is not right, not just, not fair, you have a moral obligation to say something, to do something. >> reporter: the final house vote now recorded in the history books, but the final say on
conviction lands with the republican controlled senate, eager to begin the next chapter. and the senate majority leader is promising a speedy trial. we're expecting it in january, and he has said that it's likely to end in acquittal, keeping president trump in his job. we'll send it back to you. >> okay, thank you, alice. our political analyst larry g gerston is be us. the democrats said they're following the constitution. the republicans said, no, we're following the constitution. what do you make of this? >> they interviewed 17 people, 12 of whom who actually testified, many who testified, coming up with this set of facts that said, look, we have somebody who's broken the law and this is why. and republicans had a hard time today as well as then arguing
the facts, but what they said is the process wasn't there. you're violating due process. that's a fundamental guarantees. what you had is two parties talking past each other the way they have the last couple of months. >> the vote was very partisan, along party lines. did you see something surprising? and for a person like yourself following history, this is a dark day. >> oh, it's depressing because our institutions are at stake. i mean when you impeach the president of the united states, you're saying this person doesn't deserve to be there even though 62 million people voted for him. on the other hand maybe he shouldn't be there, defiling institutions. it's tough for people like me, but i'm not normal, i know that. the big surprise was 31 democrats from districts that were, as they say, under water.
in other words, the democrats won in some cases by 15 to 20 points. their jobs are in jep, and they said, i must vote to impeach. >> nancy pelosi said she wanted people to vote their conscience. >> these correct. and i think that most people thought probably six or eight democrats said, i can't do this. i've got a district. so it gets back to the discipline of democrats and the extraordinary discipline of the republicans. >> we move forward, the senate unlikely to impeach, the president will likely stay in office. how will this impact the future? >> moving forward will be rather interesting, and i'll tell you why. nancy pelosi has one card to play that most people haven't thought about. it's not going to necessarily just roll over to the senate unless she agrees the senate leaders mcconnell and schumer have worked out a fair format,
which may mean some witnesses republicans wouldn't want. she has to certify the outcome of the vote. if she doesn't get around to certifying it, nothing happens. that is powerful leverage that many people haven't thought about, so now she becomes a player in what the senate rules might be. how soon that gets worked out, we don't know. but one set does. >> watching democracy unfold, it's a little chunky sometimes but it was working. >> it never is a pretty picture. somebody once said democracy is like sausage. you don't want to know everything that's in it, but the fact of the matter is it's painful for people. >> you can stay up to date with newscast with our free bay area app. check it out. what comes next for san francisco and the homeless
center. yesterday a center opened. today some supervisors are suggesting that future sites should be in every district. nbc bay area's christie smith has the latest. >> reporter: supervisor hanie believes that should change and the whole issue should be more urgent burke some say they're working hard to add more services and beds and adding another layer of red tape won't make anything move faster. supervisor matt hainey should know. he has three navigation centers for the homeless in his district. he called for three other supervisors be spre ouad out acs the city. >> if we limit the districts, there will never be enough beds. >> the reality is only three supery districts never had that,
they never made progress to addressing this as a citywide crisis. >> reporter: there are currently seven with more to open including the embarcadero navigation center which was met with legal challenges and pushback from neighbors. this plan would set up a time line for centers to open in more areas. >> but this is really a misguided piece of legislation in my opinion. >> he says finding a good place is complex and adding new guidelines won't help, and the mayor wants to be flexible. >> one that shouldn't be tied to, you know, a piece of legislation that might constrain us from being able to open up a site because we need to open one up in the district that doesn't have this many people. >> reporter: but haney said others need to step up. >> we have 900,000 living on the streets we need to be acting with a lot more urgency and also acting in a citywide manner.

>> you see the polite kids raising their hanhands. it's been a tough couple of days. >> we have wet weather in san jose right now. we'll talk more about the rain chances in just a few. international roaming. two words that make me and probably you cringe. we've got a case where a family's wireless bill jumped more than a thousand bucks. nbc bay area responds next.
phone while they were there. instead of strangling him, she asked at&t to turn on the international passport plan to help. her son continued to use it and her bill shot up to $1,600 anyway despite the passport plan. she disputed it and didn't get anywhere. they called us and we called at&t. they said commerce who plan on traveling internationally should chamg their plan prior to leaving the country. we know life happens, a and boy does it. we try to work with customers who may have forgot on the add this feature ahead of time. they offered connie a $1,200 refund. and she was happy with that. she wrote us and said without your help i would probably still be fighting with at&t.

now we get to try the impossible burger and see if it tastes like the real thing. >> look at you in cahoots with burger king. another storm system headed our way this weekend. let's bring in that microclimate forecast and get you good to go. in san francisco, we have spotty raindrops on the lens. currently 56 degrees. the deal tonight as we keep the cloud cover and the chance of spotty on and off showers as you move through the evening. this forecast here really can be replicated all across the bay area all throughout the night. be prepared for the windshield wipers to go on a little bit and take the umbrella with you. had the bulk of the rainfall moving through. most has pushed off to the south and east with a couple of showers down here toward morgan hill and gilroy moving off toward the east.
we think we'll have showers into 711 and 720 ads well. tomorrow shows a change in the forecast. what i'm seeing right now is the main storm track that brought that rainfall today starts to lift a little bit to the north. so the best chances would move away from us, but that's going to set up morning fog and also slightly milder air. i think the temperatures will warm up 3 to 5 degrees tomorrow and a chance of morning fog coming back. everybody has the possibility of patchy dense areas of fog. so just be on alert for that tomorrow morning. otherwise it's going to be cold to start. 45 in the south bay. more of the 40s here for the east bay, san francisco and the north bay. now, we talked about temperatures warming up tomorrow. definitely not going to be uncomfortable by any means, but instead of the low to mid-50s, we're at cupertino.
the air will not be as dry as we've been used to. 61 in concorde. 59 in peninsula. head up to san mateo, 57. san francisco, it will be chilly. 56 in embarcadero. 57 through mary rinin. 62 in mill valley. my excepted forecast has things changing once again by this weekend. we see this next storm system right here lining up by 6:30 on saturday night. so here's what i've done on the extended forecast, 7:00 to 11:00 on saturday as winter officially arrives, we get showers moving into the bay area. we could have sfoty somehspottyr the 49ers game. if you don't have a poncho, you can park yourself here and watch
it. spotty showers next tuesday, wednesday, thursday. this would be a quarter to 1 1/4 inches. so far looking good for christmas. as we head through the next couple of days in the 60s. your morning temperatures will primarily be in the 40s to start off. tomorrow is the break between the rainfall. we need to watch out for that morning fog as you head out. >> have you got your christmas shopping done or holiday shopping done? >> i have my holiday shopping done, but i have to wrap. >> that's a good indoor job. speaking of niners, they dodged the rain today as they get ready for saturday night's showdown against the rams. we're going to hear from jimmy g. next.
