4:00 am
the efforts underway for many to salvage what they can. mornings on 2 starts now. good morning. thank you for joining us on mornings on 2. happy halloween. the last day of october. i'm pam cook. >> i'm dave clark. steve paulson is over here talking about halloween weather . >> cool. chilly. >> i felt it last night. >> a little chill in the air. very spooky, but not really. it's part of a pattern change that is setting up shop. we have to wait to the end of the week but low clouds are rapidly filling in. the low cloud deck is working its way in. 43, lakeport. brentwood, 49. fairfield, 45. kelseyville, 40s.
4:01 am
napa and american canyon -- take your pick. bodega bay, a cool 48. not as much of a breeze. it may pick up later. even out in the delta it's quiet. the system that went through yesterday set the stage for what is turning out to be a cool pattern. today we maybe a couple degrees warmer because of the loss of cloud cover. 50s, 60s, upper 60s and a few low 70s. nothing scary about that forecast. that is a good forecast. nothing scary about the traffic either. so far, anyway. this is a look at the tracy commute. traffic is moving along well. the tracy super commute, 205, 580, looks good out to the main part of a livermore. no major issues as you drive into dublin and over to castro valley. this is a look at 880, oracle
4:02 am
arena where the warriors won last night. traffic is moving well in both directions. this is a look at westbound bay bridge. traffic here is light. let's go back to the desk. the investigation of a deadly shooting last night in antioch continues. one man is dead. just after 8 pm, police went to contra loma boulevard. at peppertree way they found a man on the ground who was later pronounced dead. right now we do not have any other details. if you have any information, call antioch police. a san francisco police crime scene investigator testified the man charged with killing kate steinle actually pointed a gun at her while she was walking on pier 14 team. investigator john evans claims jose ines garcia-zarate aimed the gun at kate steinle while she was walking on pier 14 with her father.
4:03 am
he said because garcia-zarate was not an experienced shooter, he aimed to low , jerked the trigger and missed his target. he said the bullet ricocheted off the ground and hit steinle. the defense attorney said the evidence is confusing. >> i think fundamentally what is at stake is that they are struggling to make sense of physical evidence. >> legal experts say the focus of this case will be if jurors think garcia-zarate fired the weapon intentionally. if so, if he fired it at steinle. this week firearms and ballistics experts are supposed to testify about whether the gun could have gone off accidentally. paul manafort, president trump's former campaign manager is under house arrest. so is his business associate, rick gates. special counsel robert mueller moves ahead with the first indictments in a probe of russian influence in the elections.
4:04 am
if convicted, both men could face decades in prison. they are facing a dozen charges including money laundering and conspiracy. the indictment says millions of dollars upload into overseas accounts controlled by both manafort and gates. it also said the men did not register as foreign agents when they work for ukraine's pro- russian government. manafort's lawyer disputes the charges. >> there is no evidence that mr. manafort or the trump campaign colluded with the russian government. mr. manafort represented pro- european union campaigns for the ukrainians. and in that he was seeking to further democracy and to help the ukraine come closer to the united states and the eu. those that gave it is ended in 2014. over two years before mr. manafort served in the trump
4:05 am
campaign. >> if convicted, manafort could get up to 80 years in prison. eighth, if convicted, could get up to 70 years. both are due in court thursday. the new york times reports 126 million facebook users may have been reached by russia's alleged meddling in the election. that is more than half of facebook's monthly users in the u.s. russian agents also uploaded more than 1000 videos to google's youtube service showing the far-reaching russia's efforts to cause divisions. there could be more to come in the investigation into russian ties to the election. doug luzader joins us from washington this morning. talk about how serious the indictments are and what this means for the trump administration. >> reporter: does our two separate questions. if you are paul manafort are rick gates, these are serious indictments. the charges are completely unrelated to the campaign and
4:06 am
to the white house and to these allegations of collusion between the white house and russia. do prosecutors see these as a means to an end? load them up with charges and convince them to cooperate with investigators to prove a larger case. maybe so. that is a typical tactic you see. as far as george papadopoulos is concerned, that is a different event. here you have a low level, volunteer campaign advisor who, nonetheless, did have communications, questionable communications with individuals and russia which gets closer to the purpose of this investigation. plus we learned he was charged and confessed to those charges a while ago. he struck a deal with the fbi. what level of cooperation has he offered? and is he going to ultimately be the source of additional charges leveled at additional individuals? that's one of the big questions
4:07 am
now. >> that is the big question. everybody seems to be talking about the tip of the iceberg that we will see a lot more indictments. >> thank you. 4:07 am. paying more at the pump. starting tomorrow, we will explain how much more you will pay and how california will rank compared to other states when it comes to the gas tax. the application deadline has been extended for prospective you see students affected by the north bay wildfires. we will let you know how much more time the university of california system is giving them to apply. good morning. traffic is off to a nice start on many of these commutes on the east shore freeway. it's not bad so far heading to the maze. low clouds are marching in but it looks like they will burn off sooner and temperatures will be near seasonal averages.
4:08 am
we will talk about that for halloween forecast as well. reca well.
