6:07 am
inadvertently? and because this involves russia, the democrats have been quick to pile on. what happened in this meeting? president trump in the oval office with russia's foreign minister and u.s. ambassador last week. according to a report in the washington post, as the conversation shifted to aviation security, the president disclosed some classified information about isis provided by in the country. he did not mention the source but provided enough information that the russians may have been able to connect the dots. perhaps putting the source in jeopardy. >> i was in the room. it did not happen. >> reporter: the president national security adviser spoke to reporters at the white house last night, defending the president. >> at no time were intelligence sources or methods discussed. and the president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. >> reporter: democrats lit up twitter. the senate intelligence committee chairman, if true,
6:08 am
this is a slap in the face to the intel community risking sources is inexcusable, particularly with the russians. even some republicans are uneasy. >> it's really problematic that it's the russians because they do not have our interests at heart and they can't be trusted. >> if it did hinder our relations with an ally who's already infiltrated inside, it could be a problem. >> reporter: beyond that, another question for the white house -- who is leaking information about conversations in the oval office. the white house may have to try to reassure allies in the region and today the president speaks via phone to jordan's king of dahla. doug luzader, fox news. the u.s. senate will get a classified briefing this week about the fire at fbi director james comey. in the meantime, the search for a new director goes on. president trump says he intends to name someone quickly. some democrats say they will not consider the replacement unless a special prosecutor is in place to investigate
6:09 am
allegations of russia -- russian interference in the election. sean spicer says at this point, the president sees no need for a special prosecutor under any circumstances. >> there is no need for such a prosecutor. you have two senate committees that are looking into this and i think if you look at what the acting director said last week, he made it clear they had the resources they need and that were continues. >> spicer refused to answer questions about the existence of tape recordings from the oval office after that tweet from president trump referring to tapes of his conversations with james comey picture san francisco police are hoping surveillance video will help them track down two drivers involved in a rolling shootout on mother's day.

bridge. and i shot showing the traffic. also a nice skyline shot of san francisco with the clouds. this shot serves two purposes. you can see that traffic is moving well on the span all the way up to treasure island into cloudy san francisco. a foggy san francisco. as we push and you can see that traffic is doing just fine all the way through. no major problems driving into the city. it's a very nice drive so far. at the bay bridge toll plaza it is backed up. teetering lights are on at normal speed. this is about a 20 or 25 minute delay. nothing major going on on the bridge. traffic is moving well if you are driving on interstate 880. also, i did mention that southbound 880 at high street, there is a report of black smoke coming from a car.

6:34 am
we should even be expect it to ask permission or have strange white men in washington, dc, making our most personal reproductive decisions is just simply appalling. >> lawmakers who oppose the bill do not think license plate money should go to fund abortion. there is a new push by state lawmakers to help low income residents pay off traffic tickets. alex savidge, you are in walnut creek. tell us about this plan to give some drivers a discount on their traffic tickets. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. an interesting idea in the works at the state capital. this would create a sliding scale for traffic tickets based on income. and this bill working its way through the state senate right now would give judges the discretion to reduce the amount of a fine by up to 80% if a
6:35 am
driver can prove they are unable to pay the original amount of the ticket. of course they would need to prove that to a judge to get the discount and people would only be eligible under this bill if their income is 2.5 times the federal poverty limit. the author of the bill, senator herzberg, said it's an attempt to even the playing field because hefty traffic fines that are an annoyance to the wealthy can be detrimental to low income earners. >> is the purpose of government to collect money off the backs of people or is it to enforce the law? we are using money to enforce the law. >> reporter: if this bill were to become law, it would not apply to fines for driving under the influence or reckless driving. the legislation is opposed by california's district attorney's association which believes that driving comes with a certain degree of responsibility. this bill will likely be up for a vote in the state senate sometime next month. an interesting idea in the
