the newsroom with a more on the details of what we saw unfold today in washington. greg? >> reporter: this is just a fourth time in history articles of impeachment have been introduced against the u.s. president. house speaker nancy pelosi called this a solemn day and democrats said they must be clear no one is above the law. republicans say their counterparts want to impeach the president because they are afraid he will get reelected. >> and serviced her duty to the constitution and to our country, the house committee and the judiciary is introducing two articles of engagement. >> reporter: then announced to the articles of impeachment against president trump tuesday charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of congress. >> threaten the integrity of our elections. throughout this inquiry, he has attempted to conceal the evidence from congress and from
the american people. >> reporter: the nine page document as the president ignored and injured the interest of the nation. when he allegedly withheld military aid in the white house visit to get ukraine to investigate joe and hunter biden. republicans called the process rushed and unfair. democrats said they had no choice. >> the argument, why don't you just gray, mustard this. why don't you just let him cheat in one more election? >> reporter: the house judiciary committee will likely debate and vote on the article by the end of the week and move to the full house for a vote for christmas. it will likely follow along party lines. republicans pushed back thing the democrats just don't want to accept trump as president. it is not difficult to defend this president. but it is very difficult to defend this congress and what they have done in history will not be kind to them. >> reporter: the president has been tweeting in response, writing, nadler just said that the russian ukraine to interfere in our 2020 election. ridiculous. and he knows that is not true.
>> reporter: the white house press secretary released a statement calling the spaces and partisan. going out to see the president will address charges in the senate where it looks like we're headed for the trial in the new year. the president is expected to take the stage any minute at a campaign rally in pennsylvania and is expected to address the article. in the newsroom, greg lee, ktvu fox 2 news. >> telling us more is joe paul. he is a law professor at uc hastings. >> reporter: they only drafted the two articles of impeachment here. the focus is very narrow on the presence dealings with ukraine. what is that strategy there in sort of keeping a narrow focus on the impeachment case? >> i think this tragedy is that first of all they want to make clear to the american public what the grounds are. they want to keep it simple so that it is accessible to everyone. that the president has leveraged his office in the wake to advance his own
political interests at the expense of our national security in our democracy. i think that is the simple message that they are trying to convey with these two articles. >> professor, when looking at this debate, how do you expect things to change or will they or will democrats continue to prosecute president trump and republicans continue to defend him? >> the experience of the nixon impeachment is illustrative because in that case, it was not until very late in the process that a majority of the members of the house and the senate reached a conclusion that the president should be impeached and removed from office. i think that in this instance, the facts are not disputed. i think what is really being disputed here is whether or not there are suspicions, grounds
never impeaching the president. i think a lot of that will defend on how the american public understands the articles as they are presented here. >> and you bring up impeachment case against president nixon. when you step back and look at various impeachment processes over time, this particular case, the impeachment of president trump, democrats are essentially saying, this kind of potential for interference in u.s. elections is exactly what the constitution designed the impeachment process for. do you believe that is the case? >> i think so. it is very clear that when we go back and look at the discussions at the constitution convention, the concern is the situation where a foreign
government seeks to influence our government and i can imagine the case in this. >> when you talk about the partisanship of all of this, what type of info do you think the articles of impeachment being lodged against the president is having on the american people as a whole? >> it is very divisive polarized time. i deeply regret that fact. i do think that one issue that i think ought to unite all americans as concerns about our national security and our autonomy. i think to the extent that the president and some of his supporters exonerate russia and its involvement in our elections in 2016. i think this is going to, i
think this is going to persuade a lot of americans that if we are going to remain an independent and democratic country, we need to go ahead with the impeachment. >> we would have to leave the conversation there. we thank you for your team. thank you so much. going to the east bay this afternoon for two men made their first appearance in court today. >> reporter henry lee joining us with new details about what happened to the victim in three different counties. henry? >> reporter: and most of these cases, a husband-and-wife word tied up, separated and had valuables taken. now, victims i spoke to today are relieved. they have been charged with felonies and for home mission in where victims were tied up and blindfolded. >> all of the victims were just

cofounders. thank you so much for coming here. congratulations on expanding. francis, let me start with you. why did you choose to expand into oakland? >> we have been reporting the news in berkeley for 10 years now and we've always certified oakland as an incredible new city. it is a city that is four times the size of berkeley. and with the cut next to local news all around the country, all around the bay area, we noticed that there was less and less news coming up about oakland and we thought that if we have the opportunity, we would like to go in and try to closely cover some of the communities that don't have voices now. >> oakland is a community you believe is undercovered. what are some of the key issues that you're going to tackle was this new platform launches next year? >> i think there are a lot of untold stories in oakland. part of what we're doing in launching this next spring is talking to people in oakland.
talking to community leaders, talking to people out in the various neighborhoods about the stories they want to see. it is some very obvious stories, housing, on affordability of housing, homelessness, the education system, development in oakland, there are a host of issues around that that certainly there are plenty of stories to tell. >> so you've got a big infusion of cash here that goes a long way to be able to tell some of those stories. one and half million dollars from the google news initiative in 1.5 million from the american journalism project. what they did take to secure that money at how the disk come to be? >> we noticed that google's news initiative was giving out some money for different news sites content around the country. they give some money to them. and, we thought that they should actually partner with a small hyper local news site
that has been doing it for a while. we think we know what we are doing. we talked to google and the news initiative people agree with us very, very quickly. they thought it would be very helpful. they want to help develop metrics and approaches and things that will help the news business and so by focusing on a small side, they might learn some russian steak which apply elsewhere. >> were you given assurance that google will not try to have some sort of sway over what stories are governor and how they are covered? >> we have never been interested with the money that came with strings attached. it is very specific in the contract that there will be no involvement whatsoever in the editorial and that would've been a very fundamental point for us. >> we know that google is making a lot of money off of local news content while the local news industry has taken a hit. ad revenues are falling, see layoffs in a lot of newsrooms.
did that give you pause at any point in this process? did you have any second thoughts about partnering with google? >> was we met the people from google news initiative, we didn't have any second thoughts but we were aware about the role of social media and online form in siphoning funds from newspapers and organizations, without the molded of all ourselves. we are also grateful for the opportunity to expand into oakland. maybe some people could say that it is a great thing that, it is a great thing that google is doing it. >> there is sort of a shifting business model, speaking of which, berkley said, you guys are changing now to become a nonprofit? what does that allow you to do, why the change? >> i think in some ways, we have probably always been a nonprofit without the tax status. furry community oriented, very mission driven. what the nonprofit status will
allow us now, however is to get grants like the american journalism project money which was only available to nonprofits. and there is this growing ecosystem for nonprofit news. we can tap into that. both funds will also support. we also of course live and work in one of the wealthiest regions in the world and we are quite of domestic that there will be people in the bay area who want to support local coverage on local news. >> i think there are a lot of people like that out there. before i let you guys go, francis, what about a name for the oakland site? some ideas? >> it has been much easier to get $3 million in funding than actually fell on a name. we are working on it. >> we appreciate you both come in and. congratulations on the expansion. cofounders of berkeley side. thanks for coming in. greatness. it is one of my go to sources.

think that we tend to overstate the quality of driving jobs and understate the number of jobs that are left in the industry. right now, it is actually a hard industry to record for. and, we do have an opportunity to return an existing labor in the professional driving industry for safety drivers the way policies are written. a lot of people are talking about the issue of weaver in the driving industry and i think it is somewhat overstated is something we need to pay attention to. >> all right, the future is here. thanks so much, appreciated. today, the u.s. finalize a tree deal with canada and mexico. reaching an agreement sweeping bipartisan approval but did no come easy. it is a result of long-running negotiations between democrats and republicans. >> reporter: lawmakers are showing it is possible to work

people don't pay too much attention to it because of the super bowl. there was a thought about honoring him as a cap and, generally, then alleviation for that community, signing autographs. working with players in such. and, he has come back. he had a successful career since his gun and out of prison. >> and, cindy. i asked some folks on twitter on what they think about this. some people go straight to the point. he served his time, but he made amends. lived a good life since. had a champion right now for animal rights. still, though, it is a controversial pick. talking a little bit more about this petition. >> reporter: someone posted a petition on change.org and it posted about half 1 million signatures now. they are actually free petitions.
