community rattled. about 20 people were inside preparing for morning player -- prayers when witnesses said so many threw a bomb through the window. nobody was injured. with those affiliated with the mosca say it has been a target of hate messages in the past and they believe this was a hate crime as well. >> hate is not okay. bargaining targeted because of race and ethnicity. >> an attack on a mug is the -- on a mosque is an attack on all faith. >> the fbi is leading the investigation. the united nations security council has slapped north korea with stronger sanctions. this is in response to the country's nuclear program and frequent missile test. a launch days ago used a ballistic missile that could target across the u.s. the new sanctions call for a complete ban on coal and other exports totaling more than $1 billion. the resolution we passed

7:38 am
obstruction of justice charges and can use grand juries to compel witnesses to testify. >> melissa and i asked willie brown himself who is no stranger to the grand jury process. is this good news or bad news for the trump administration? >> it is always bad news. if you have the subject matter of the grand jury's deliberations. but it could very well be the manner by which he ultimately rehabs himself completely. because if that grand jury does nothing, he's got braggin' rights for days days. >> remember that the grand jury's can and died but they also investigate. it looks like right now they are just issuing subpoenas and asking for documents. it doesn't actually mean it is there but getting a grand jury is hard. it has to be in the public interest.
7:39 am
and getting a subpoena is not hard. it has to be relevant in the investigation. it doesn't mean that mueller has provided any evidence or proven any case in order to get these investigatory subpoenas coming in. >> except in the case of this investigation, he could have very well gotten a subpoena from the congress. there are enough investigations being conducted by the committees which would have removed the stench and the assumption. also the opportunity to discuss the grand jury. >> this has been going on for several weeks. in that time, the president started taking shots at sessions. this might explain that how out of nowhere, the president is angry if there are subpoenas coming in the door. >> that may trigger the anger on sessions. and the idea that these subpoenas started showing up and that the grand jury would be going behind closed doors. >> i have gone before grand juries. i am pleased that there were no leaks. >> a person can talk all about what they said that the
7:40 am
folks in the room and the jury members are not allowed to talk . >> unless of course you are encouraged or instruct it by the person that brings you into the grand jury room, not to discuss your testimony, period. >> does trump get called? >> of course not. he will not get called. >> they said that about bill clinton. >> and? >> he was impeached. he was impeached for lying in front of a grand jury. that is an absolute crime that will get you impeached. if trump is called, he will be in trouble. because remember he is not allowed to have a lawyer. >> believe me, they will not call trump. there is no way they are calling trump on this one. >> melissa, will we see the end of the great russian show quickly will it go behind closed doors and? >> you wish. >> we wanted to stay there. >> we have investigations in the senate and the house. they are not necessarily
7:41 am
criminal investigations. what mueller is looking at is criminal issues -- not the political or civil issues of obstruction or collusion. next time you see a hastings professor joining us -- talking about the latest leaks and moves to stop them in washington by jeff sessions. and the new relationship between the attorney general and president trump. taking the final bow. the touring cast of hamilton finishes to a sold-out crowd. we will be right back. this busy mom spends her days driving all over town.
7:42 am
so why is she smiling?
7:43 am
because she shopped during the safeway anniversary sale and filled up her trunk with grocery savings, plus earned 4 times the gas reward points. now that's something to smile about. right now, get pepsi 12-pack 12-ounce cans, buy 2 get 2 free, and lay's chips, 9.5 -10 ounces, 2 for $5 with your club card. the safeway anniversary sale. come in and explore. david levine welcome back. joining us to talk about leaks -- the relationship between the president, attorney general and everything else going on in washington, we have hastings professor david levine. i have to ask you, the president seems to be obsessed with leaks. is that something new in washington? >> presidents hate leaks. reporters love weeks. it is part of the culture. president trump has been vocal.
7:44 am
and over his career, he has been one of the top seekers of all times. >> past presidents have leaned on attorney general's to get things done. including stopping leaks. what makes this different, or is it? >> in a way, we are returning to something that was going on under the george w. bush administration. attorney general gonzales started typing up at that point. certainly under president obama and attorney general holder, they tighten up on leaks dramatically. i think part of the difference is that it is probably easier now to go after leakers because there is more of an electronic trail. in the past it was more like, you will never find them. >> now between cell phone technology, e-mail and such, a lot of times fingerprints can be found. >> . >> sure. >> i think that they missed garage over in virginia -- go back there.
7:45 am
>> there are leaks and there are leaks. the president is upset about leaks coming out of the white house. revelations about what is being sought -- and who is fighting with who. and possibly conversations with foreign leaders. then you have other leaks that endanger national security. where is the legal line? >> the legal line is -- it is two fold. one, if someone is leaking classified material, that is potentially a crime. and that has come up with some of these cases. with the bush administration, that was part of the issue. the obama administration, that was part of the issue. if your employees are leaking against you, it is a personnel matter. if someone in the white house is leaking so one person is up and one person is down, that is a personnel issue and you might want to can a few people. but they won't be criminally indicted for leaking
7:46 am
embarrassing things. >> the idea is to put a chill on it by overhanging the threat. so if you are even called in, you have to get a lawyer and such. it is very prohibited. >> absolutely. if you think there is a greater chance for penalties from the leaking, you are less likely to do it. no question. >> and something interesting about leaks -- i have always been surprised about the phone calls i get. leaks by people actually in the administration. if you are in the administration, are you covered by this? because you have the ability to say, i'm going to give you this information and not tell you where it is coming from. so in other words, it is a legal leak. >> at the consequences are that you could lose your job. in the white house, those are political appointees. >> let me rephrase the question. if the president leaks, is he leaking? if he says, i will tell you this off the record.
7:47 am
is he guilty of his own crime? >> it depends on your definition of the word week. is it classified or unclassified information? we can speak generically about leaks. we could talk about revealing classified information. of course the president already did that. >> final question. have you ever seen a relationship -- on-again off- again relationship between the attorney general and the president? >> this one is really nasty. but we have never seen a president like this. i think that is why. he leaks his views and feelings all the time. other presidents pick up the phone. they yell and scream at somebody. think of johnson or clinton. they yell at people. they don't do it in public. they don't tweet about it. >> he has leaky tweets. >> thank you for joining us this morning. now we will go to melissa.
7:48 am
>> thank you so much. it was a bittersweet moment last night for hamilton. the cast, crew and fans had a chance to say goodbye's to the run at the san francisco orpheum. >> hamilton opened in san francisco in march. tickets were almost impossible to grab and every show sense has been sold out. the show is known to be a phenomenon that has changed the way people think about musical theater. >> this has completely changed the game. >> the production headed south to los angeles where it will open on tuesday. but don't worry if you missed your chance in the bay area. the orpheum theater announced hamilton will come back in early 2019. over to julie for the weather. >> thank you, melissa. taking a look at the golden gate bridge.

7:55 am
recipe many hope other farms will follow. >> in the cattle country, albert strauss is known as a trendsetter. in 1994, his strauss family creamery became the first 100% organic creamery in the nation. >> now 85% of the dairy farms are organic. >> he believes that changes saving the economic viability of farms in the area. now he is thinking even bigger. he wants to save the planet. >> if this diesel feeder truck sounds quiet it is because it is not diesel at all. about eight years ago, strauss and one of his mechanics began tinkering with an international harvester truck to see if they could convert it to fully electric. >> i had to wait five years before the right motor came
7:56 am
along that could do this job. >> it worked. about two weeks ago, the nation's first electric cattle feeding truck began making its rounds. the reason it fits so well here is because of another innovation. in 2004, he created a system that collected liquefied cow manure in a holding pond, capturing the methane, which is a harmful greenhouse graph, and uses it as a fuel generator, to produce enough power for the entire farm, including the truck. >> it will be the future. it will be more sustainable and environmentally friendly. >> so the truck feed the cows and the cows power the truck took a process that he calls, closing the loop. and while many consider dairy farms to be harmful to the environment, this farmer is proving that it doesn't have to be true. >> it is not either or. it is how can we pull the pieces together to make a viable community farming system. >> kpix5 news. >> the united nations

8:02 am
not addressed by politicians in the private business world get addressed in the artistic world. so you have got it clearly. otherwise, he would not have the blacklist years ago when they would say people work communist's, et cetera. all of those are things that regularly happen. believe me, if you are a candidate and you can attract a crowd, you have it going for you like know whether. because nobody has ever said, you are bribed by an actor. >> we have seen -- hillary clinton with an incredible star- studded lineup for people supporting her at events. and it had no impact on the voters themselves. they might be like, that is cool. but does that translate into changing my vote? it is a different question. >> but keep in mind, when ronald reagan, who was an actor, stepped up and became part of it and john wayne and that whole right wing cloud -- crowd, they were effective at
8:03 am
helping him deliver, this morning in america. >> but does gavin newsom have a morning in america message, and do we have to reach back to ronald reagan and john wayne to get an example? >> this forces me to go back to a time period when there would be no debate. >> when you have a crowded field of democrats, who is getting the money becomes important. it shows where the momentum is gathering. although as we saw, the money is not the only thing. but it can help. >> and if it is money like they currently have, it is no money at all. $195 million for meg whitman -- and all she got was a job at hp. >> it is interesting -- the idea of money -- no matter where it comes from, it only buys you so much and the big races. people have to
8:04 am
have an impression of you going in. >> name recognition. and less recognition is, i'm the person that spent a lot of money and lost an election. that can also be a bought reputation. >> this is just the first round. i'm sure people will get involved. in the bay area, what have we gotten? >> we have hundreds of thousands of people expected to attend the festival of arts this weekend. for the first time, there are the 20-foot barricades at every major intersection. the purpose is to stop a vehicle from plowing into a crowd. scene all too common in recent terrorist tax abroad. >> we want to be safe. we want to make sure the citizens feel safe coming to the events. it is important to us that they see that. it is important to show that we are taking the necessary precautions to ensure safety. >> the festival wraps up tonight at 6:00. at another bay area event that has entertained families for decades is facing an uncertain future. the santa clara county fair is fighting to keep its long tradition alive.
8:05 am
some devoted fairgoers say they have watched the event go from a vibrant festival years ago to virtually nothing. >> the animals are shrinking. the rides are shrinking. >> i would be extremely disappointed if the fair went away. i'm disappointed in what it is now. >> organizers however say they are working hard to revive it. and attendance as of this year compared to last year, by several thousand. switching gears, new video this morning shows a lyft driver being brutally attacked in los angeles. she said she had just dropped off a customer and stopped to gas up 12 women jumped out of a car and started hurling insults and punching. she says they dragged her by her hair and threatened other customers that try to help. >> oh my god. thank god they did not stomp me
8:06 am
to the point i died. i never thought i would experience something like that. >> she says the suspect took her wallet, her phone and her rent money. lapd says they have a lead on the suspects after getting a license plate number. the state of california may sue the feds over sanctuary cities that try to protect undocumented immigrants. it is reported that the california attorney general is considering a lawsuit. this comes after u.s. attorney general jeff sessions threatened to withhold crime- fighting grants for cities and states that refuse to play ball with immigration. the potential lawsuit could argue that federal policy violates the constitution because only congress can set conditions for that kind of money. president trump is backing a plan that would cut immigration to the u.s. and half. >> this act will reduce poverty, increase wages and save taxpayers billions and billions of dollars. >> the proposal would change the system for granting legal residency or green cards to what the white house calls, a merit-based system. it would favor immigrants that began english and have high-
8:07 am
paying job offers. the act would end diversity for visas. some say it would affect latino families the most. we spoke to a statistician for pfizer who has been in the country for more than 20 years. >> i would not have been able to apply because my english was poor. >> this would also cut the number of refugees admitted each year from 110,000, to just 50,000. san francisco mayor ed lee says this undermines the countless contributions of immigrant communities and ignores the values that define our nation. and the oakland mayor libby schaaf had this to say "immigrants make america great" ." >> this issue has gone nowhere in washington for years one of the reasons is you have -- both sides seem to be getting something out of it.
8:08 am
business gifts cheap labor. and we have the democrats and immigration advocates that want people to keep coming in. >> if you look at chuck schumer or bernie sanders -- >> they were in favor of limiting immigration because they had the same fear a lot of people do. that it the precious -- that it depresses wages and makes it harder for people to compete. but there is a new perspective these days. but you are right. they come together. >> and we will be talking about this issue and affirmative action within the state and just a couple of minutes, when we talk about immigration regulations at colleges and universities. we sit down to ask those questions. s reopening the debate over race and college admissions.
8:09 am
for years, centurylink has been promising fast internet to small businesses. but for many businesses, it's out of reach. why promise something you can't deliver? comcast business is different. ♪ ♪ we deliver super-fast internet with speeds of 250 megabits per second across our entire network, to more companies, in more locations, than centurylink.

we do business where you do business. ♪ ♪ where you do business. and i'm an arborist with i'pg&e in the sierras. the drought in california has killed trees on a massive scale. any of those trees that fail into power lines could cause a wildfire or a power outage. public safety is the main goal of our program. that's why we're out removing these hundreds of thousands of hazard trees. having tools and technology gives us a huge edge to identify hazard trees. my hope is that the work we're performing allows that these forests can be sustained
8:11 am
and enjoyed by the community in the future. together, we're building a better california.
8:12 am
the department of justice sent a notice to employees... looking for lawyers to work on a new project.. examining intentional race- based discrimination. sa te house press secr the trump administration is reopening the debate over race and college admissions. the justice department sent a notice to employees looking for lawyers to work on a new project examining intentional race-based discrimination. >> and while the white house does not confirm or deny the existence of the potential investigation, the department of justice will always view determination on the basis of any race. >> california as one of eight states that ban the use of race and admission policy to colleges
8:13 am
. >> joining us to talk about affirmative action and the new immigration policies or proposals coming out of the white house is affirmative action. we did a story earlier this week on affirmative action at uc. how many people in california did not know that california had a ban on affirmative action several years ago? >> we have lived now since 1986 with the passage of proposition to zero nine without affirmative action in public education, public employment and public contract. >> what is the effect? >> we have seen hundreds of millions of dollars that would have gone to minority and women owned businesses. we have seen a decrease in some minority groups in terms of admissions. we know that unemployment has probably been a much slower path for women and minorities to ride in the ranks of civil service. >> it is interesting to note that a couple years back, when some lawmakers said, maybe it is time to bring affirmative action back.
8:14 am
if you are looking at the template of california politics , you would say, everybody would agree with that. but in fact, it was tabled. >> it was. i think affirmative action is a complicated issue. you ask people if they even know what the word means and many people don't. that particular effort was also targeted in higher education. and i think it ran into a lot of confusion about different problems we face around the scarcity of higher education. i think it was also very clear that for some members of the chinese-american community is, they were focused on that issue rather than addressing important concerns around diversity. >> can we show that does what the numbers were. we asked about this. 80% of people said they were ready to go for keeping things the same. basically, they feel like it is a meritocracy versus affirmative action model.
8:15 am
>> we have seen a lot of different polls. it goes both ways. the key part of the question has to be -- for what purpose. so should race be considered as a factor to reduce discrimination? when you leave that part out, people think -- it would be used to perpetuate ongoing racism and sexism that we have. >> as we look at these numbers , it is across the board. the african-americans are the biggest supporters we have hispanics. asians are not. why do you think that is? >> i think when people think about it in the context of higher education, they are dealing with a number of things . higher tuition cost -- >> out-of-state tuition and international students students. >> i think that drives people to think, we shouldn't tinker with this. but i think the reality is, there can be a very smart
8:16 am
proposal to actually expand does when you see spots for everyone. and that groups are of underrepresented -- that they will have a fair shot. >> let's look at shifting psyches. your organization began in the 60s. that was a time of great moves in the civil rights movement. then we evolved into the rainbow coalition where everybody was pushing together. are the new immigrants coming in from around the world feeling the same way? >> i think it varies. it is important to note that for many people, there is a period of understanding -- the best way to advance civil rights in america. i think in america, what we find, is that any group discriminated against does much better linking a cup -- linking up with others who are disseminated against. and what you see is, a scapegoat and blaming immigrants of color. at the same time, trying to decimate immigration makes the
8:17 am
-- which makes the communities robust and whole, would be a terrible mistake. >> and the new call for immigration to be based on skills rather than family connections -- your feelings on that? >> i think it is a disaster. i think that is the way immigration should work. to keep families together. to create a pathway to citizenship. in this business of trying to track down and end up with inhumane deportations -- it has to be rejected. >> final question. do you think affirmative action will return to california anytime soon? >> i think it can. i think it will be up to the next government to really push it. >> thank you for joining us this morning. now let's take a look at the forecast. julie, we are tracking this by the minute. what can we expect? not a lot of change in the forecast.
8:18 am
