5:14 am
donald trump for president an ad. we'll find out where this turns into a fight is when jack dorsey attacked for not doing the right thing. he is rudderless when it comes to policy on political ads telling congress one thing and candidates another. jack dorsey went for the jugular in a long string of tweets explaining the new policy and attacking zuckerberg if not by name. it is not credible for us to say we're working hard to stop people from gaming our systems to spread misleading info, but if someone pays us to target and force people to see their political ads, well, they can say twhafr they want. and adibi winky face. the reason i am making a big

5:45 am
corrections and rehab employee. >> the offices in sacramento, this video, in fact, shows the flag which has now been seized. managers there believe the employees are the ones that left the items. he said a person of color with no ties to white supremacy groups. they also say the employee showed an obvious lack of judgment and may still be disciplined. happening today southern california congresswoman katie hill is set to give her final floor speech. this comes after hill announced her resignation on monday. the freshman congresswoman has been in hot water over an affair with a staff member. a congressional ethics committee has been investigating her relationship with a female senior aide. at least four candidates have filed paperwork to replace her including former trump campaign adviser george papadopoulos. >> congress will take the next major step to impeachment president trump. this will call for a major
5:46 am
house wide vote, marcus, in a matter of hours from now whi. it's not an impeachment vote, it's a vote on the rules on the impeachment inquiry. the rules set up by the committee. how long people can talk and rules that allow the president's lawyers to attend and cross-examine sets out the whole process. the vote gives a lot of people political cover if they want it. a congress person from a pro-trump district could say republicans have been asking for this set of rules, for public hearings. this is tim morrison, assistant to john bolton. the white house told him not to testify and he quit his job. he says they're not related. john bolton has been called as a future witness. we don't know if he'll show up. he was very upset about by what
5:47 am
the president said to the leader of ukraine. alexander vindman was on that call. insiders tell nbc news he was so concerned that the president violated his oath of office he immediately went to white house lawyers, and it was his concern that led those lawyers to move the transcript of the call to a high security server. they are not the president's enemy. morrison is the former republican policy director for defense appointed to his job by trump. he and bolton are so conservative they got the name super hawks. bolton was appointed by trump. the biggest problem for trump isn't the democrats in the room, it's the witnesses. now let's not let this distract us. president trump presented the highest honor to master sergeant matthew williams. sergeant williams saved lives
5:48 am
holding off the enemy during a mountain firefight in afghanistan in 2008. scaling a cliff to organize rescue of wounded comrades and led a counter assault to prevent the americans from being overrun by enemy forces. we'll follow everything that happens on twitter and will be bringing a lot of this on nbc news as well. a spare the air alert day because of all of the smoke we've been seeing across the bay area from the kincade fire. take caution. a lot of people are concerned, it's halloween and want to send the kids out trick or troeting. we've seen the smoke blowing off the sonoma coast so much of the bay area has been spared from that smoke. seeing the coldest temperatures with the freeze warning in effect that continues
5:49 am
until 8:00 as our temperatures in some of the areas dip down into the upper 20s. dealing with that along with a very frosty morning, in the upper 30s in napa. we're also in the upper 30s in san martine. we've seen low 40s from concord to livermore, over to san jose and low 50s in oakland and san francisco. as you head out for your morning commute dipping down to 39 degrees, heater on full blast in the car. make sure you wear an extra layer going into the rest of the day. it's going to be a nice afternoon. we go hour by hour and look at all of our micro climates taking you into noon, mostly be seeing some mid-60s for much of the bay area and a lot of us reaching up to 70 degrees at 3:00. 72 in danville and cupertino
5:50 am
warmer than it was. time for trick-or-treating as we approach sunset. it's going to be another cold night heading into tonight as well as tomorrow morning. temperatures at about 67 degrees at 6:00. 63 degrees and 60 degrees at 8:00. also about the same for the bay. not a wide range in temperatures today. how that affects the smoke from the kincade fire. we can see the winds here are blowing off the coast around this area of high pressure. that's going to keep it from being really smoky throughout much of the weekend. low pressure will be slow to move though some storm systems and will not reach the bay area.
5:51 am
that steers them up to the north and off to the east. we are going to see our temperatures remaining steady. highs in the upper 70s and we fall back this weekend. daylight saving time ends this weekend. it will be nice to see some rain in the forecast. i don't see any rain until the second or third week of november and, mike, a new report. looking on the newark side of the dumbarton bridge eastbou eastbound, we'll track that but it should be fine. a smooth drive, the south bay up to the city and the east bay, the southbound side just shows a little slowing. morgan hill is fine. before you get there the slowing. typical like most thursdays a little bit shorter in duration for the really slow speed.
5:52 am
