6:21 pm
we want to be very specific on who is under this fire warning. it's similar to the last several we've had. it's isolated areas in the northeast and the south bay. it's for hills at a thousand feet and above. that's where we could see occasional gusts of 20 to 40 miles per hour. this begins at 10:00 p.m. tonight, lasts until 7:00 a.m. on friday. i do want you to notice that a lot of highly populated areas at sea level are n warning. many of us will not be feeling those extremely gusty winds. up in the hills, we do expect those occasional gusts and that's why we are under this. despite the fact if you get any wind or not tomorrow, the other thing we have been tracking is how dry we are. we did get rainfall to start the season on october 1st. we haven't seen anything since then. we're now running a deficit of anything from about 1 to rely no mope over e bay area, the next seven days in our forecast. the question we're asked a lot is what about the drought.

6:30 pm
slamming a cnn reporter, and late this afternoon, we have reporter, jim te house has now acosta, from the white house. the white house claims acosta put his hands on a white house intern as she tried to take the microphone away. acosta calls it a lie. many twists on this day after the midterm elections. after an election where his party lost control of the house, president trump still calling the night a win. >> i thought it was a very close to complete victory. >> republicans increasing their control of the senate, picking up three more seats, the president attributing that to his aggressive campaigning. >> history really will see what a good job we did in the final couple of weeks. >> but as for the house flipping from red to blue, that's on outgoing republicans, he says, taking down a list of those who did not embrace his agenda and lost. >> mia love gave me no love, and she lost, too bad. >> the president speaking with
6:31 pm
reporters during a lengthy news conference. >> mr. president, i have one other question if i make ask on the russia investigation. are you con'mcerned not concern anything with the russia investigation because it's a hoax. that's enough, put down the mic. >> suggesting he only needs to negotiate with house democrats to get a deal and send the legislation over to a gop senate for a slam dunk. >> it really could be a beautiful bipartisan type of situation. >> reporter: even extending this olive branch to the likely lepelosi, but saying he would consider it a war like posture if the democrats use the new house majority to investigate him. pelosi responding. >> we see a need to go forward, we will. >> reporter: saying democrats will not go looking for a fight. >> well, not only did democrats gain some ground in the house, so did women. some are calling it a pink wave.
6:32 pm
right now, women hold 84 of the 435 seats, but after last night, they picked up some more seats. they picked up another eleven at least, so it's 95, and they could add three more after all the ballots are counted. a good night for women. check out this layout, you can see it's still dominated by men. women hold less than a quarter. the winners including 29-year-old alexandria ocasio, and the first native american women and muslim woman elected last night. both tennessee and arizona will have their first female senators. >> a lot happening. now, the shake up of the white house comes as no surprise. the timing did catch a lot of people off guard. the president fired attorney general jeff sessions. sessions submitted his letter of resignation. you can see it here. it started by saying quote, at
6:33 pm
your question,request, i am suby resignation. he walked out of the justice department as staff members greeting him with applause. democrats immediately expressing concern over the status of the mueller investigation into russian involvement in the 2016 election. >> any attorney general, whether this one or another one, should not be able to interfere with the mueller investigation in any way. they should not be able to end it. they should not be able to limit it. >> reporter: matthew whittaker is now the acting attorney i a during the bush administration, most recently he was sessions chief of staff. >> let's bring our political analyst, larry gersten to talk about it, is it really a surprise he asked for his resignation the day the democrats took over the house. >> he couldn't wait. i wouldn't be surprised if it was 8:01 last night he picked up the phone. this leads to a series of issues and questions about what happens next. first of all, whittaker himself
6:34 pm
may be tainted. if you have gone into his history, he's issued a series of statements about how the mueller investigation has gone too far. >> including an article. >> the question is does he need sn't recuse himself, there are other questions. for example, he doesn't have to fire robert mueller, all he has to do is cut back his budget. all he has to do is saying i don't want you going in this direction or that direction. mueller must get approved before he goes in any direction. there's a multitude of ways mueller can be hampered to the point that he's totally ineffective. that's the kind of thing people are going to be watching in the days to come gl people talking about the his -- to come. >> people talking about the histrionics, and some parameters, rules of engagement here. >> i think they can work together. the question is how much does each of them really want to work
6:35 pm
together. democrats have a problem. they can't get too cozy with republicans. they're the other side. if they do, they put themselves in jeopardy for 2020. republicans have a problem, the president has a problem too, he can't get too cozy. on the other hand, when he runs for reelection, should he choose to do so, president trump has to show something. infrastructure is begging for some kind of deal. it's a natural. the question is will the president move on infrastructure without saying i want the money for the wall, without saying, i want the immigrants stopped from coming all together. we don't know. this is new territory. this is the first time the democrats are at the table. we just don't know how the table is going to work. >> how much of as it on the president's part to continue to take on the press, especially like he did today for jim acosta. >> yes, the republicans picked up a couple of seats in the senate, they lost the house. they lost the house. in fairness, this was no big surprise.
6:36 pm
the average gain for an off year election, we have talked about this, is 30 seats, what did the democrats pick up, 34, 35, but still, it stains the president. it stains the president after all th campaigning he's done in recent weeks, and so yes, he's deflecting. he doesn't want to talk about the democratic gains and now the real opposition. he wants to talk about anything that can get him the audience and the public away from that and on to him. >> thank you, larry for your insight. well, governor blown is celebrating a midterm e -- brown is celebrating a long-term election, pleased that californians voted against lowering taxes, voting down the gas tax increase which was on the ballot. >> look, this is about building for the future. just think about what you're paying. they don't want to say, well, what are you buying? we're buying the future, we're buying safety, buying bridge overpasses, holding up in an earthquake. >> governor brown defended the gas tax in his top priority in
6:37 pm
this election. republicans led the effort to repeal that measure. >> and what about our water, a measure that would have given the state's water, infrastructure an update was rejected by voters. prop 3 called for the state to authorize $9 billion in bonds to cover water and environmental projects. supporters say it would have helped guard against the impact of future drought conditions but critics argue it's simply too costly for taxpayers. >> i'm not sure this was the perfect bond for what we needed in this state. but as a whole, i think the state kind of lost out. water is absolutely a place where we need more investment, and we're going to have to do it one way or another. >> prop 3 was shot down. back in june, voters did pass a $4 billion park and water bond. 2/3 of that money will go toward projects to improve state forests, beaches and parks. well, marc benioff asked the

6:48 pm
