president? if this is not impeachable conduct, what is? >> the democrats contend the investigation centers around a shadow foreign policy run by the president's personal attorney rudy giuliani. they say the president wanted the ukraine government to investigate democrats in the 2016 election, and the bidens all while withholding military aid. republicans counter all of the testimony is second and third hand knowledge. central valley congressman, devin nunes gave the republican opening statement. >> anyone familiar with the democrats scorched earth war against president trump would not be surprised to see all the typical signs that this is a carefully orchestrated media smear campaign. >> reporter: the president spent his day with the president of turkey, and says he didn't watch much of the testimony. he did fire off dozens of tweets calling it a witch hunt.
5:01 pm
>> reporter: this hearing lasted more than five and a half hours. during that time, democrats and republicans tried to use these witnesses to make their clear case about if the president committed an impeachable offense or not. the real question is, how will this impact public opinion? >> the facts that have come to light are very much what the founders had in mind. >> this is an abject failer for the democrats and for adam schiff. >> reporter: a stark contrast. acting u.s. ambassador to the ukraine, william taylor, and senior official, george kent testified. taylor revealed new information about the president's focus on investigating joe and hunter biden. >> the member of my staff asked ambassador sondland what the president thought about ukraine. mr.sondland responded that the
5:02 pm
president cares more about biden. >> reporter: the president after trump's call with ukrainian president volodymyr zelensky. at issue, democrats believe the president used his office to extort ukraine to dig up dirt on the bidens. including withholding nearly $400 million in military aid. >> it was not just the white house meeting that was dependent on the investigations. he said it was now everything. it included the security assistance. >> you did not listen to the president and lindsey's call? >> i did not. >> you never met the president. >> that's correct. >> reporter: the republicans pressed on what they called second and third hand information. they also question hunter biden's work in the ukraine. uc hasting's constitutional law says both sides made some
5:03 pm
traction. he also believes the severity of the president's reported actions are far worse than president clinton or nixon. >> we know far more about what impeachment was for. this is exactly what they were talking about. fear of foreign entanglement. fear of misuse of power. >> i haven't watched for one minute because i've been with the president, which is much more important as far as i'm concerned. this is a sham. >> reporter: president trump and republicans pushed again today to have the whistle- blower testify. one issue is this clash of the regular channel of diplomacy, versus what he called the irregular channel. more are scheduled for next week, including ambassador son sondland, which is going to be a big one. you talk about the republican defense for these two men today
5:04 pm
who said that basically they had second hand, and third hand knowledge. sondland had direct access to the president. if this phone call holds true, was speaking to him about the ukraine pressure campaign. they're going to ask him about that heavily, and ask what his direct contact with the president was in this. >> one of the things about the mueller report is that it was very complex. >> i think what you saw from the council from the democrats was very quick, pointed questions. they wanted to get to the point. they wanted frankly to get sound bites, because this was a public hearing, and not everyone was going to have a chance to look at five and a half hours of testimony. they want to hit the nail on the head of let's focus on, did the president do this, and is it a high crime or misdemeanor, making it very simple. >> did the first day move the public needles any, in how the americans look at president
5:05 pm
trump. >> still 49% in favor of impeachment. when you look at the republican party, there's still a lot of people against this. what you'll see probably is no matter what happens, the house and the senate are going to vote along party lines. i tend to think the american people are kind of following that mold. >> and in the senate they need 2/3rds, and the democrats have noy mere 2/3rds. >> the president will likely face impeachment. it's hard to expect 2/3rdsor any of the republicans will move on that. >> we'll have the fall hearing as well as reaction on our home page. just go to a halloween shooting left

5:08 pm
noisy party. >> reporter: family members of some of the victims say the shooting could have been prevented, had officers shut down the party because of the noise. at the time, officers say they could not have predicted what happened. >> there was no indication that this, you know, that there was going to be a problem. >> reporter: so some residents here have been demanding more police on the streets, but the city manager tells us right no, the city is busy, focusing on potentially making changes to their short term rental ordinance. henry lee, ktvu, fox 2 news. authorities in santa cruz hope new surveillance video, and a larger reward will help identify the suspects accused of kidnapping, and killing tech executive tushar? autri. newly released video shows three suspects walking out of an alley near the man's home. one of the suspects appears to be carrying a large duffel bag.

5:44 pm
works here in san francisco. >> what's next now? where do you see things going from here? >> the next step, he's got to hire a coaching staff. kapler said this will be a collaborative effort between him and farhan, and scott harris. buster posey was in attendance today, but didn't speak. we don't know exactly how he feels about it, but you would assume there is support there. ron wodas, he's a fan favorite, just a terrific guy, he's going to stay on as third base coach. there will be at least a smidge of continuity. >> the giants can't get a lot worse. >> they were a little better than certainly two years ago. but there's a lot of work to do, and these three guys are going to be very, very busy over the next few months. the california hall of fame has announced a new class of inductees. among the honorees, the late

5:51 pm
video. it's cold out there. chicago, st. louis, atlanta, washington. flight delays as you would expect from the cold and the icing. the current temperatures, 25 in chicago. 36 in st. louis. 21 in fargo. those are right now numbers. a lot of records today, as you heard, because the pattern is stuck. we're warm, or mild, and they're cold, and wet, and snowy. these were our highs today. they did drop off a few degrees. we had a lot of cloud cover. those clouds are pretty much going to be around tomorrow, even more so with temperatures dropping a little further. the plan is for this weather system in here. it's hard to see it. here is the high. this little tweak is going to slide through. it's going to be a little further south than that, but it's going to push through, and change the dynamics. it's going to lift the inversion, essentially. when that happens, you get drizzle. sometimes you get a little rain. i've seen them go through before. sometimes, .01, or .02, which
5:52 pm
is what we were expecting tomorrow. i've seen these things drop a quarter inch before. places like half moon bay, bodega bay, or even santa cruz. most of us are just going to notice clouds and a little drizzle. either way, cloudy day tomorrow. cooler, temperatures dip, right? then they climb back out towards friday, saturday, and sunday. so the forecast for tomorrow morning, look at that. that's tomorrow morning. the drizzle, and mostly cloudy all day. looks a lot like today, except for the morning with that drizzle. the plan is for all of this to slide through. there's that low back here. just behind this. it's going to slip through and just the air rises high. the air sinks and warms. for us, that's a good fire danger scenario. that knocks the fire danger down pretty quick. then the high builds back in this weekend. with that, you warm up a little bit. so the weekend's going to be
