>> i-44 right now and we're talking we're still talking about the raincoats. you know, we've only had that one storm on sunday and then we had overnight some good rain to we did clouds still hanging around the chance of a raindrop or 2, still not out of it quite yet. we've got john in the weather center with the john, yet we're right at the tail end of it because you're exactly right. still not quite out of it just yet. >> you can still see there's plenty of grey right up above us. showers are starting to break up now less and less frequency to them. just a few light sprinkles right around half moon bay stretching on to the peninsula in san francisco. a few neighborhoods also in the midst of a few
9:45 am
light sprinkles and up into the north bay much the same had a couple of lightning strikes in eastern solano county earlier. and we're still continuing to see some thunderstorms up in the sierra foothills, not ideal, seeing the lightning with them, but at least all that dry vegetation we had been seeing is very damp. and after multiple days of rain and even upper elevation snowfall up in the mountains, showers will stick with us couple more hours. but by late morning, we're pretty much done with it. and the rest of the day today looks drier than even the past couple of days were we've been seeing afternoon thunderstorms for the inland east bay, less of a chance of that today as most of that potential shifts further out into the central valley. so you'll see some of those clouds on the horizon less likely to actually see them moving your direction, though, the low pressure area that's been bringing us rain fall finally makes its way out. high pressure ridge about to be building back in. and in the process of that, we're going to dry out and warm up into the start of the new season tomorrow, 60's and 70's for san francisco today. 60's at the coast. pretty solid
9:46 am
70's elsewhere. only 3 spots even reaching 82 degrees. woodside being one of those the other 2 being center fell and walnut creek, san jose. you'll be at 74 while freeman through hayward each at 72 livermore and dublin. 75 for your highs. some upper 60's in berkeley, toledo and sonoma. nice. 74 degrees for you this afternoon. tomorrow's highs back into the low 80's as we reach the start of fall, upper 80's to low 90's inland by the first weekend of the new season. as for bayside city's upper 70's to low 80's and coastal areas, even tapping into some 70's this weekend john, thank you for that, right. traveling into the city right now. you're out about 23 minutes to make it from the maze. >> to that fremont street exit to leave that a pretty busy morning, especially along the san mateo bridge that earlier accident shutting down the ridge. the eastbound side for most of the morning drive times now at about 20 minutes, heading across towards the peninsula. get a lot of people stopping and looking all right there to the east. the richmond, sandra fell bridge
9:47 am
12 minutes tolls to 101. as you travel out of richmond, let's check on things along our highways. so 39 minutes along 101. it's 85 to menlo park. 2.80, were seen slight delays. 82 is moving a lot quicker. 8.80, leandro down to milpitas about 38 to 40 minutes for you to hop on the air. we had earlier accident along. 24. that was right at the konica tunnel. that's clear. but now we're at 24 minutes today from walnut creek down to 5.80, and 5.80, in 80 crockett down towards the maze about 21 minutes. darya. james, back to you. i want to be clear. white collar financial crime is not a victimless crime. >> when the well connected break, the law. to take in more money that they are entitled to. it reduces resources to working people to regular people. to small business isn't attacking all taxpayers. everyday. people cannot lie to a bank about how
9:48 am
much money they have in order to get a favorable loan to buy a home. send their kids to college. and if they did. the government would throw the book at them. why should this be any different? >> and that's exactly what the new york attorney general is now doing, throwing the book at trump. she says that trump and his children and the trump organization have lied about finances to the tunes of hundreds of millions of dollars inflating their net worth the value of their business over the years. >> according to the new york attorney general to benefit themselves with better interest rates for loans for better insurance policies and to also continue the brand that the former president has built over decades, that he is a successful real estate developer. billions of dollars. and according to the attorney general in pursuit of protecting that brand over the years he has along with his
9:49 am
partners in business, filed numerous, large and fraudulent financial statements that inflated over the years. the value of his personal wealth, his cash on hand and the value of his real estate holdings. she says that she's got plenty of evidence and that she has passed that on. >> 2 federal prosecutors and to the irs saying that trump in over a ten-year period every year filed false false asset reports. ignore the advice and the appraisals of professionals. and then she pointed out examples that you might be familiar with so properties in new york that are residential, for example, he's a penthouse that he developed there saying that sit right, saying that it 30,000 square feet when she said that he knew because he built at that it was more like 11,000 square feet and that caused hundreds of millions of dollars in value to get to tripling in value and also mar-a-lago, the estate there.
9:50 am
same thing showing a pattern of behavior that she says is illegal it is it is in this state of new york that they want him to pay back 250 million dollars. and they also want to basically put trump at a business in new york for at least 5 years and him from operating yeah than him and his adult children from ever holding >> any sort of leadership position in a corporation or other entity. this lawsuit was massive, 280 pages compiles this lawsuit, which according to the attorney general, includes more than 200 examples of financial fraud over the years and started mentioned all of this is also being forwarded to federal prosecutors with the eastern district, new york and also with the irs. because don't forget. according to the attorney general, the president, former president and his associates inflated the values of his properties in order to get favorable loans and whatnot from the bank. but then potentially deflated the value of his
9:51 am
properties when he was filing taxes with the irs now have to pay pay as much. we do need to mention that trump has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. >> he did appear in a deposition and it was in relation is case where 440 times he refused to answer the questions under oath, plead the 5th plated the 5th as well his donald trump all of his adult children. >> also provided f and m i a deposition but didn't do any answers. i think eric trump pleaded the 5th 500 times and the same thing. the trump say it's a witch hunt. and letitia james just did point out that she wanted to say that this whole thing was sparked. the investigation was only spark after trump's own michael cohen. it a few years ago, said to congress that this is what was going on. so that's when she launched an investigation which she said spanned 3 years with 60 witnesses and and and hundreds of pieces of evidence. and you heard in that brief sound bite at the beginning.
9:52 am
>> when we started talking about this sort of again reinforce that theme that nobody is above the law. and that has been one of the big messages that she's been trying to push forward. that everybody who commits. >> what potential crime like this is prosecuted to the full senate law. and she does not believe the former president should be exempt from that. >> big breaking news story that we just found out about here. and you heard it live here on the kron. 4 morning news within the hour. we'll be back with more coverage and more news and weather and traffic in just a few.
