4:01 pm
warehouse. the attorneys say, quote, the defense team has received a reliable scientific report, a copy of which accompanies this release, indicating that the origin of the fire was at the building adjacent to the so- called ghost ship warehouse. to talk more about this and the potential legal ramifications i'm joined now on the phone by ktvu legal analyst michael cardoza. if this fire indeed didn't start at this warehouse, does that mean that he is off the hook? >> no, it doesn't. this is at least in my opinion misdirection by the defense, almost like a magic trick. look over there. the fire didn't start in the ghost ship, it started next- door. what's the difference where the fire started? by way of example, say there was a candle shop next to a
4:02 pm
movie theater. movie theater tells tickets, fire starts in the candle shop. wife sees movie theater on fire. people cannot get out of the theater just like in the ghost ship situation. so whose fault is that you say? the owner of the movie theater isn't responsible for not supplying good exits to the people that they invited into the theater? same thing with the ghost ship. no, does it not get him off the hook. >> this is a developing story. we have reached out to almena's lawyer. we have reached out to oakland mayor libby schaaf for further comment. we will bring that to you as soon it is a becomes available. cleanup following another wet weekend. crews are working to clear away

4:17 pm
the post election for haw been very disappointing. your thoughts on the first full day in office with this president trump. >> i think that the most significant thing that's happened since the election is that president trump has nominated people for his cabinet and for the most senior positions in his administer strailings. >> and you don't agree -- or are you surprised by any of these choices, and your take on the choices? and we can go through a couple of them. i think the epa, mr. price specifically i would think, he is special worrisome to someone like you. >> i think that the biggest generalization you can make about the people who have been nominated for this cabinet are that they represent special interests against the interest of american citizens. >> and sometimes against the interests of the appointment that they now have. correct? >> well, in several instances, including aus mentioned the environmental protection agency. he's appoint people to lead the agency who are the chief
4:18 pm
opponents of the existence of the agency. >> right. this would be fulfilling a campaign promise to, i guess, drain the swamp scenario in washington insiders and the rest of it. so from that standpoint, is anything he's doing surprising to you? >> well, let me just start by saying, to appoint someone to be the chief environmental protection person in the united states would doesn't believe in clean air or clean water is not draining the swamp. what that is doing is taking away the fundamental rates and interests of american credit accepts. that is an agency that's been around since 1970 under richard nixon that is very popular. people like to breathe clean air. people like to drink clean water. we want to be healthy. and to take that away to serve corporate interests i think is something that is completely contrary to the american spirit. >> and one of the things on the table actually that concerns california is the emission standards, the california regulates their own. we have tougher amission standards than any other state in the country, and that even
4:19 pm
is on the table in terms of potentially taking away that state choice. what can california -- californians or people who are against this do about in the. >> let's go back in history. the reason that we pioneered clean air standards is because we had such dirty air that people were getting sick and they were -- they were not only sick but they were dying early. so california said let's have standards to make this better. the idea that the federal government would close that down is something that clearly is going directly to the courts. >> right. >> but just from the standpoint of looking forward and thinking, who doesn't want to have a healthy place to live? what doesn't want their kids to be able to good outside and play in clean air and go to school and not have to stay home because they have asthma? i mean, that just seems like nuts. >> you worked tirelessly to make change especially when it comes to the environment. what are you doing now you? ary in the on the sidelines. what are you actively doing now that the election is over? >> what we believe in is traditional american direct democracy. so what we done 2016 was try
4:20 pm
and knock on doors, encourage vote tore voter conversations, register people to vote on the idea that the broadest democracy will provide the best answers. and that's still what we believe. so what we're going try and do is stay at the grass roots, we're on 370 college campuses, try and make sure that students are aware of what's going on and what the implications are, try and work with community groups so that people around the united states hear from people that they know about what's going on and what it means, and just make sure that people around the united states know and don't become passive for what we think of with some very negative implications. >> what went wrong? >> well, i think if you look at 2016, we -- >> we live in california. >> yeah. >> california was an incredibly successful election night for democrats. look across the board. not only did people get
4:21 pm
elected, but the propositions won. there was a very progressive tone, super majorities in both houses. >> the reality is owe. >> in the rest of the united states, something else happened. and that was this. by and large the obama electorate did not show up in force on november 8, 2016. and so in california we did. the kind of direct democracy i'm talking about, people showed up. i think in other parts of the united states, and particularly in the midwest, the democrats would showed up for president obama twice did not show up on election day. >> and a lot of soul searching now will good on over the next two years first off, and then four years obviously final question, the one we always ask when we have you here is, when can we expect a decision if you are going to jump into the gubernatorial race coming up here in california? >> well, we are very committed to the kind of grass roots politics that i'm describing, to ensuring that inside
4:22 pm
california and outside california that americans are involved. >> wean governor steyer have more power to make change? >> whatever i do is going to be a function of making sure that that effort is as powerful and as focused and impactful as possible. >> thank you, sir. >> nice to sigh. >> tom steyer. >> controversy over president trump's business interests has prompted a group of scholars to sue the president in federal core. they claim he is in violation of the so-called emoluments clause. >> reporter: the claim that trump receives money from foreign dignitaries in hotel stairs and other goods and services there by violating the he mole you meants -- emoluments clause. it is did he fined as a salary, fee, or profit from employment or office. but it is critical to read the
4:23 pm
entirety of the emmole emoluments clause. no person holding any office or trust under them shall without the con vent the congress accept any emolument. so anything is off limits. the idea of the frame verse the constitution who had just broken away from owning gland was toll eliminate any possibility of corruptive foreign influences. the first problem for the lawsuit, that congress may allow president trump to accept emoluments if it so chooses. trump's party controls the cop, house and senate. though it's not a slam dunk that congress would allow it, the pathway for the president is there. the other problem with the lawsuit is a common arm's length business transaction such as renting a room or an office suite really an
4:24 pm
emolument. if the president put his assets in a so-called true blind trust where he has no control or knowledge of how it is being run, the problem is solved. but without such a blind trust, it is entirely possible that the conduct of a foreign government doing transactions could be interpreted by a court as an attempt to curry favor from the president by enriching his businesses over which he might have some control. a court would have the jurisdiction and authority to remedy that. but again, congress may allow the president to do this if congress so chooses. tom vacar, ktvu fox 2 news. >> all right, still to come, a harrowing tale out of the is i era. we will speak with one of the men caught in an avalanche that covered his car, that coming up next on "the four on 2".
4:25 pm
4:26 pm
4:27 pm
two drivers were in the wrong place at the wrong time when an avalanche dumped snow across highway 89 in the sierra near the squaw valley resort. the chp says the slide happened just before 1:00 this morning. two cars were buried in several feet of snow and it took caltrans crews about an hour to dig those cars out. thankfully everyone inside was okay. some places in the tahoe area received more than two feet of ?oap just 24 hours starting yesterday morning. and one of those men who survived that avalanche now joins us on the phone. neil, thank you for speaking with us. >> hey, how's it going? >> it's going very well, but
4:28 pm
i'm sure you're doing much better than we are. can you tell us about the experience? 1:00 in the morning, i'm assuming it's very dark out there. where were you guys headed? >> we were driving north from tahoe city to get back to our house, near the base at alpine meadows road, and that's sort of maybe a mile south of alpine meadows we experienced a bunch of snow went over the hood, and we were blind for a second, and then when we could see again there was a huge pile of show in front of us. we hit the brakes and hit it, and then there was kind of a whooshing noise, and then we were pretty much instantaneously buried in snow. >> did you know at that point you were sting an avalanche? >> yeah, yeah, we -- there was maybe a brief kind of shock moment, and then we cut the ignition in the car. we didn't want to freeze the area around the tailpipe and to
4:29 pm
have deal with carbon monoxide in the cabin. so that was the first thing. >> how did you stay calm? i can't imagine what that would be like. did you pan snake did you call 911? >> i think we were both pretty -- weans we sat and thought about it we were super excited that we weren't dead or messed up. like avalanches, i think sometimes can take rocks and various pieces of debris, and we just felt the snow. it didn't crack the wind on my side of the car or anything. so once we figured we were pretty okay, we got a cell phone call in to 911, and the north tahoe paramedic and fair crew and one of our friends, michael bancroft, a groomer at al pain meadows, came and dug us out in under an hour. >> did you know at that point that it was already 20 feet across? and it was pretty deep. >> no, we didn't really know. we thought that maybe we could back out of it, and it turned out that we were sitting in
4:30 pm
pretty much like a football field worth of snow. >> oh my goodness. how's the car? >> i'm hoping for the best for david. we just -- yeah, i think we're good friends, and we're both former scouts, too. we're actually current scouts for david. so we had a pretty good time of it once we realized we were probably going to be okay, the selfies and my kind of lame attempt at doing facebook live streaming. >> taking selfies, sounds like you were doing a-okay, neil thank you for joining us on the phone. still to come, family members helped find a car that could hold the remains of their loved one. an update on search efforts. plus, an update on the members of the well-known band tower of power after they were hit by an amtrak train and

family members of an 18- year-old woman helped police locate a car that drove into a bay area creek. however, police say they aren't able to get into the water to recover the car at this point or the woman's body. >> there's still work that needs to be done but there's a high probability that we've found the car. >> after a day of searching investigators believe they have
4:34 pm
found a silver car belonging to a missing 18-year-old tracy woman who plunged into this creek saturday morning off niles canyon road. >> it looks like maybe the car from point of entry into the creek to where we located it now is about 100 yards or more. >> monday afternoon, investigators used a drone to get a close-up look at the vehicle, but they still can't make a positive identification, because the water current is too strong for divers to enter, officials have stopped the flow of water into the area. that is expected to take several hours for the water to recede. >> the car -- you almost feel like you can get it, but it's just not safe for us to do that. tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. we will begin the recovery of the car. >> while it is unclear if the woman's body is still inside the vehicle, they do believe she's the victim of drowning. >> with the family members, her mother, her father, and you stay determination on their
4:35 pm
faces to find their daughter, it's very moving. and that determination and that love for her is what helped find that car. >> investigators say they will close niles canyon road tomorrow morning while they attempt to pull the car from the road. that closure could take a couple of hours. oakland is preparing for another benefit concert for one of two musicians hit by a train as they were on their way to perform with tower of power nearly two weeks ago. this is a look inside the sound check inside yoshi's. this is a one-time only event with performances by the e family, sheila e, david coz, tony lindsey from santana, tons of artists and surprise guests. they want to help ease the financial burden as he heals.

>> mark has kaiser, but he was taken to the trauma center for five or six days. and so in that particular situation, he's uninsured. so those bills have been astronomical, as you can imagine. so we are doing everything that we can possibly do to raise money for him. >> he was filling in as a bass player on january 12th when he and david were hit by an amtrak train. they did not see the amtrak train coming in the opposite direction. sheila e says mark has played with her and her father's band which is why they set up a go fund me page. it has now raised more than $65,000. >> we're very thankful and blessed. we said even one dollar, one dollar makes a difference. and we really appreciate everyone giving their support and their love for this time in need. >> the show starts tonight at 10:00. tickets are $50. the e family says they will be
