you're going in clark and running and there's nobody else around. it doesn't really matter if you wear. to my soul, one if you're in the middle wet point event slated in northeast. and the occupy asian, you know we need you to be in that space for a very long period of time. ben mee be extra protection would make a big difference. >>yep it double masking is not recommended for all masks experts do not recommend to cloth or to surgical is instead double masking must be a cloth mask on top of a surgical mask. at this time, the cdc does not recommend everyone wear an n 95 mask. >>in the east bay, the san ramon valley unified school district said reopens preschools and elementary schools for in person instruction today. trump forcefully chagall reports from danville where students wrapped up their first day back. >>youngsters lineup, 6 feet apart from their classmates

6th insurrection of the capital and failed to act quickly to send help or call his supporters off house impeachment manager representative ted lieu argued that trump's desperate desire for power led to the riot. >>how did our exceptional country get to the point. a wave violent mob attacked our capital murdering a police officer, assaulting over a 140 other officers. how do you get the point where writers desecrated the filed and dishonored your senate chamber. whether replace him which use it became a crime scene. and we're national guard troops still patrol outside wearing body armor. i'll show you how we got here. president donald j trump ran out of nonviolent options to maintain power. some republicans say presentation of the chilling video and audio evidence is compelling.
>>including surveillance video of staffers, rushing to find hiding places on january 6th and although 6 members of the gop voted to move forward with impeachment proceedings. the bay area, vice chair of the california republican party doesn't expect that number to get much bigger. >>i expect to see maybe maybe one or 2 more, i don't expect to see to many more. i think that the lines in the sand are drawn. for the most part. don't think those lands are going to be blurred too much more. you know and i and if i can speak kathryn i think that has more to do with the division that's still in the country in less to do with the legal aspect of things here. for all that can be said about biden president biden coming personally you know supportive than and i want to make sure we have unity in this country i think that's important but i think a lot of people on both sides are still. digging their heels in is this really about conviction or is this about.
political agendas. >>jonathan i'm madison they're speaking with our own catherine heenan now some have suggested that the republicans sticking with donald trump are considering there own political survival medicine argues it's more about simple loyalty. >>president biden and his aides have been avoiding weighing in on the impeachment trial as much as possible biden has said he will not watch the trial and is leaving it up to the senate to decide whether or not to convict trump. and they say that staying above the fray allows him to focus on the business at hand namely that covid-19 relief package. >>all right joining us is a san jose lecture. donna crane. donahue watch today. pretty dramatic stuff. yeah, i'm i'm emotionally spent every day. i
must say at the end of the day i realize i'm emotionally sense that it was just. >>heart breaking up all over again to listen to the arguments and watch the footage that i had not seen before. >>you're emotionally maybe more than half of america is but but certainly the whole country is not. how compelling do you think what we're seeing and hearing at this impeachment trial. is to americans and republican houmayor may not be considering the actual evidence. where do you think the the competition is if you will for for the soul of america. >>it's such a good question, you know i thought a lot about this since we had a similar conversation last night and i asked my students whether they were paying attention to what was going on whether any of the news was filtering through
their busy lives, you know they're normal people they don't spend all day watching the stuff as as i do or as you do. and they are definitely aware of what's going on and so this is of course eliminated something that should have been obvious to me from the beginning which is there's more than one audience here for the conversation that's happening on the senate floor right now the the conversation that's happening is not just about talking to senators dress, it's also about setting history books of correctly writing them correctly, making sure that the american public seize evidence on both sides and boy i'll tell if my students are any indication they are very aware of the conversation on the senate floor, not the details but they get it and they have a lot of questions about why they held responsible for very small but the president seems to think he can. you basically support
an insurrection and then thinks he can walk away and wash his hands of this that there is a there's a whole other audience out there that's paying attention. other so much to to pick apart here. but the one thing that struck me in watching and listening is that a lot more of the spotlight was put on the capitol police trying to hold the line the staffers hu were hiding under desks you know. the regular people who've. >>we're we're we're protecting not only the law makers but in the larger scheme of things you know democracy. do you think that that registered in a different way with the audience today. well if we can to the primary audience which is at this point gop no i don't i think that they now hardened in their position.
>>and i don't i don't think really anything will not shut them out of that i think that they have you know constructed a reality in their minds that they that they have to vote to acquit and nothing seems to penetrate i think when you talk to the broader public if any what he's forming impressions about about about the cases being argued on the senate floor. i definitely think some of that is registering i and i have to say on a personal note, i myself and just enraged all over again that these are you know the staffers and the police officers work on capitol hill these are professionals these are people whom work in public service. they are not ideological they're not partisan. they're there to protect the members of congress and to make the institution work. well for us and then i see senators on the floor, you know do the landing and telling reporters that this is all a waste of time and a waste of taxpayer money
and i think to myself what reality are you living in that the people who'll protect you we're in danger because of your negligence, it's it's an astonishing political some situation that we find ourselves in. >>republicans like kevin an ardent trump supporter of california. they were begging the president. on january 6th to come on tv and to tell these people to leave the capital and the president eventually did hours but in the same breath, he said go home, we love you, you're very special white with the democrats not try subpoena some witnesses people who're with the president for all those hours when he was reportedly watching the events unfold on cable tv and according to some people enjoying it. >>you know my sense is that the house impeachment managers are trying to calibrate very
carefully how much time they spend going over some of the same material. >>and whether they're whether. >>they want to make the basic case and they want to make it in a fulsome way, but if you go on and on and on they could spend a month. making these arguments but is that really the best use of time so i think they're probably very carefully trying to measure what's enough evidence and what simply too much. don, i know we have to wrap but i i one thing that really struck me and i i imagine it got your attention and much of america, whoever was watching. >>it's it's also what the president didn't do and as commander in chief did i hear right it was not. then president trump called in the national guard. that is my understanding i think i'd like to see a lot more evidence on in the coming weeks and months but that is my understanding
yes said he's not it was. >>eventually that's right and so i personally i think they're also ought to be some legal consequences not just constitutional for his actions. >>all right we have to leave it there, donna crane lecturer at san jose state university. always appreciate you joining the program and sharing your insight have a good night. thank you. donna. 4 zone forecast chief meteorologist lawrence karnow is here a large say guys but we've got some changes coming our way after gorgeous weather outside today spring-like conditions well that is now beginning to chase scene a few clouds beginning to move into our skies now not a whole lot some high clouds we've had a couple of patches of fog. >>we'll see more of that on the way in the coming days in fact we're going to see some rain begin to move in a little bit later on so certainly in the clouds going to gather as we head throughout the night tonight think by tomorrow morning when you wake up be looking to mostly cloudy skies around the bay area so get ready here comes the storm not

was the play of the game come in a half-court bounce pass to green for the dunk. green had 11 had some nerves in the beginning of the games 9 in the 2nd half though ignite with the late lead more come from coming to you as the player, the game in my opinion by sort of contact and the foul he had 19 points and this right here showed some of his defensive potential jordan poole goes up. and coming to us watson away volleyball spikes that explanation point on this one that basically sealed the win. showing on both and why he's projected as a top-five pick in the 2020 draft 2021 draft that is ignite when one o 9 one '04 jarrett jack led the way with 23 points former warrior another former warrior jeremy lin had 18 for santa cruz. >>there was definitely butterflies at the beginning of the game but you know these guys have felt the energy around this team since we got here with the cameras that are falling around with the
