5:10 pm
you're going to cause riots in the streets. >> including greg jacob and retired federal judge j. michael luttig. >> i would have laid my body across the road before i would have let the vice president overturn the 2020 election. >> what was vice president pence's reaction when you showed him the email where dr. eastman, after the attack on the capitol, still asked that the vice president delay certification and send it become to the states? >> he said that's rubber room stuff. >> reporter: thursday committee chairman bennie thompson told reporters that it may be time to invite conservative activist ginny thomas, wife of supreme court justice clarence thomas to the committee. confirming that "the washington post" reporting eastman emailed ms. thomas and also exchanged multiple text messages with mark meadows about overturning the election results. >> we have sent ms. thomas a letter asking to come and talk
5:11 pm
to the committee. >> reporter: the daily caller says mrs. thomas signaled she may be willing to talk, telling them she can't, quote, wait to clear up misconceptions. the justice department told the committee that they also want some of that witness testimony to try to help in their criminal investigations. the committee said that it will cooperate, quote, eventually, but is operating on its own timeline. ryan? >> all right, thank you, skyler. reporting live from our capital. hundreds gathered in the south bay today to say farewell to one of san jose's beloved native sons. >> norm mineta was right, and we need to follow him right to the very end. plus new safety changes coming to oakland schools. a message to parents dropping their kids off. and it's pride month. one of shakespeare's best known stories is being told in a different way. circum >> is there a world in which we can imagine a possibility of two young women in 1848 falling in

5:13 pm
5:14 pm
there was a final farewell to a beloved native son of san jose. it was a who's who of political dignitaries, including former president bill clinton who joined family and friends today at a memorial to honor norman mineta. mineta broke racial barriers, the first asian american to serve as councilman and mayor of san jose. he also became the first asian american to hold a cabinet post, serving as president clinton's department of commerce. a young mineta was taken by train with his family to a japanese internment camp during world war ii, an experience that led him to fight for americans while serving as a u.s. representative. kiet do on the tributes to a man
5:15 pm
who left a lasting impact on the bay area's biggest city and the nation. >> norm mineta, whose modest city was legendary, would likely not have approved of such a big fuss. nonetheless, hundreds gathered to share, laugh, and shed a tear. robert ragsak played basketball with him at san jose high nearly 80 years ago. what kind of loss is this for you? >> it's terrible because there are so few of us. >> of course, i didn't want our country to do to others what had happened to norm. >> reporter: everyone had a story. diane produced a documentary and interviewed representative dan lungren, a republican who was supposed to talk about mineta as a political advocacy. >> and his first words were norm mineta, the nicest guy you'll ever meet. >> reporter: former san francisco mayor willie brown, now 88 years old said mineta served under two presidents, a democrat and republican because
5:16 pm
he was admired and respected by all. >> norm mineta, one more request. you have preceded me. my relationship with the lord requires some putting in a good word. >> reporter: leon panetta recalled how everyone confused the two as they both served in congress together. >> and so began the infamous mi mineta-panetta saga. remember, i used to tell norm, i said look, norm, let's face it, the only reason you got elected mayor is because everybody thought you were italian. >> reporter: mineta was wearing his boy scout uniform when his family was shipped off to a japanese internment camp and imprisoned for two years, an experience that didn't break him. it molded him. >> as he had in san jose, he calmly, resolutely united people of different races and parties around a central principal. that we might fail to meet our nation's great ideals.
5:17 pm
but we must never abandon them. >> reporter: former president bill clinton appointed mineta to become the nation's first asian american cabinet member. >> norm mineta spent a lifetime trying to be a builder, not a breaker, a uniter, not a divider. someone who used his power to empower others, not to get more power for himself and other people's expense. >> that is really the measure of the person you wanted us to be. show up, try hard, and do right. so one final time to everyone here and watching. thanks a million. >> reporter: in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> we brought you live coverage of the memorial for norm mineta on "cbs news bay area." you can find us streaming 24/7 on and the cbs news app. if you're driving near a school in oakland, you may have to slow down. the city just lowered the speed limit around garfield elementary
5:18 pm
school from 25 to 15 miles per hour. by the end of the year, 19 other schools will also have reduced speeds. >> we want to create bubbles of safety around these incredible community assets, our schools. we want to honor our educators, our parent, and of course our children and show them that their safety is our highest priority. . there are also new signs, barriers, and high visibility crosswalks to slow down drivers. this after city officials say two pedestrians were recently killed near garfield elementary, including a mother just dropping off her child. water bills in contra costa county are going up. the water district approved a temporary drought surcharge. customers are expected to see a 15% bump in their bills starting next month. now for the average water user, that's about $8.40 a month. water district says the goal is to encourage people to conserve water in the midst of this
5:19 pm
drought. as we check in with first alert meteorologist paul heggen, really no relief in sight that drought is just going to continue all summer. >> we're past the time of the year where we get any significant chance of rainfall. we're just going to have to wait and hope that the drought situation doesn't get dramatically worse during the dry months. but it's going to deteriorate somewhat. we got an update today. that happens every thursday. the good news is it didn't get any worse since the last update last week. the bad news is it's still a bleak situation. the entire bay area either under severe or extreme drought. that's the third worst and second worse categories. the worst category exceptional drought, that's still through the central valley, and 12% of the state is in that worst category, exceptional drought. over half the state in extreme drought, and almost the entirety of california is in severe drought. the only place that isn't, the far northwestern especially the of the state that is actually less than 1% of the state. everybody else is at least in severe drought. we do have cooler weather on the way. that helps with the short-term fire threat. the onshore breeze pushing the
5:20 pm
marine air farther inland. as the storm system gets a little closer to the coast, it has a chance of actually popping up a shower or two in the north bay over the next couple of days. they are going to be very few and far between. they're not going to amount to anything more than a few sprinkles. the fog is spreading further into the inland valleys. it will dissipate. we'll see a few clouds bubbling up, potentially bringing a few radar freckles to the map friday afternoon. a few sprinkles in the windshield in the north bay, that's going to be about it. we'll see more fog developing tomorrow night into early saturday. a mix of clouds and sunshine for the next couple of day, and another chance saturday that maybe a couple of showers, try to fit the north bay. the better chance of that stays farther north over lake county and inland mendocino county. and then we completely get rid of that even meager shower chance. second half of the weekend, things are looking pretty nice for father's day. looking very nice, passing clouds in the distance. 60 degrees downtown is the cool spot. the warmest places in the map are in the mid-70s. yesterday the warmest locations
5:21 pm
were in the upper 80s. a big drop in the inland temperature, and the temperatures are going to drop even farther from today to tomorrow courtesy of the strong onshore wind. it's gusty in spots. the sustained winds at 26 miles per hour at sfo. 26 in fairfield. some gusts up to 35 miles per hour. strong enough to potentially move you around on the road a little bit. but again, keeping the temperatures in the cool range for the next couple of days. even upper 40s on the map by early tomorrow morning. temperatures tomorrow in san francisco. warm-up to the low 60s by early tomorrow afternoon. that's about as far as we're going to go. that ends up 5 dress below average. we'll start off with some of the fog, but should it dissipate and give us nice clouds and sunshine the rest of the day. santa rosa gets a little longer to warm up. high temperatures can tap out short of 70 degrees. a little more cloud cover north of the golden gate, and the outside chance of a couple of sprinkles. concord, your temperatures a couple of degrees warmer. that's almost 15 degrees below average for inland parts of the east bay. barely cracking 70 degrees. san jose also just barely cracking 70.
5:22 pm
into the low 70s. that's it while the norm high temperature around 80. the warmest spots inland in the east bay only reach the low 70s. it was just six days ago the spots were at 105 degrees. 30 degrees off that. that's where we're going to top out tomorrow. an unusually cool weather pattern that is going to be with us on saturday. but we start to bounce back on sunday. back to near average temperatures for father's day with the warm-up in store next week, a modest warm-up around the bay. more of a heatwave taking hold farther inland, but comfortably hot, if you think that's a thing. low to mid 90s for the hottest locations. no records in jeopardy, and i don't think even the hottest spots are going to make much of a run at 100 degrees. small mercies for the first di of summer on tuesday. >> especially after last weekend. >> exactly. if we can avoid repeating that, maybe the fire fuels don't dry out quite as fast. >> that's something a lot of us have been concerned about here. all right, paul, thank you. still ahead, drag queen story time disrupted. new information on the hate

east bay congressman eric swalwell addressed hate targeted at the lgbtq+ community. community members and alameda sheriff at the san lorenzo library today. that's where authorities say members of the proud boys disrupted a drag queen story hour event a few days ago shouting homophobic and trans slurs around children. members of the community say acts of hate are happening against far too many people. >> we're seeing far too much hate. we're seeing it every day. and sadly, the san francisco bay area is not exempt from this hate. i want one message that i want to make sure is clear and pert pertinent. we're not going to stand for hate today. not tomorrow or not ever.
5:26 pm
>> sheriffs say this will be a complicated investigation because it has to do with speech, but they'll be vigilant to try to preview similar situations. san francisco's tenderloin center, created to connect people to housing and services will close down in december. funding is set to dry up at the end of the year and mayor london breed's proposed budget didn't have any more money for it. kpix 5 has reported on the center that opened as a part of breed's state of emergency initiative in the tenderloin. the city is looking at other methods including a sobering site set to open up next week and a crackdown on illegal vendors in the plaza. we're inside chace center tonight where a sold out crowd is expected. why these fans believe it's going to be the last time they're in chase center this season. and the warriors aren't the only big sports story. the world cup coming back to the bay area. plus, a bay area theater
