investigate the january 6th capitol hill riot will convene on monday again. they met last night in a primetime public hearing, blaming former president donald trump for what members described. as an attempted coup. many of those same people have tried to whitewash what happened on january 6th to rewrite history. call it a tourist visit. the panel consisted of nine
9:13 am
congressional members, seven democrats and two republicans. south bay. zoe lofgren is on the panel. she showed an 11 minute video a new one of the insurrection. the committee interviewed more than 1000 witnesses, including ivanka trump. and former attorney general william barr. i made it clear. i did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which i told the president was respect to attorney general bar. them, so s saying. the committee says former president trump had a seven point plan to try and overturn the election, including pressuring vice president pence to stop the certification of the vote and encouraging a mob of supporters to protest on capitol hill. carnage it was chaos that day. it was just hours of hand to hand combat. former president
9:14 am
trump has since gone on social media and criticized the hearing . mr trump still insists there was election fraud and irregularities on a massive scale and joining us now to talk about the january 6th committee findings is san jose state university lecturer robert oh, vets. ah! you know this morning, mr ovitz, one of the things that struck me about yesterday's hearing was that new video. it looked a lot more violent that we saw that day. well i think there was some really shocking footage there and particularly the story told by officer edwards was confirming what other officers had reported. remember five officers have died as a result of that assault that that seditious assault on the capital, but i think that the committee started with that officer is testimony. to build their case towards how violent this seditious conspiracy really was. you know, uh and what are
9:15 am
the things that came out of this hearing now that the committee was trying to drive home is that the president didn't believe that he had lost, but he kept on. pushing this lie anyway. that's what the committee says that they say that he knew that he had lost in a fair election but continue to say what they called the big lie. so what do you think? you know, first of all, who is complicit besides him? well i think that's what we're looking forward to hearing . um as you reported just a few moments ago, they interviewed 1000 witnesses. we don't know who everyone is. there has been , uh, kind of drip of people who have been subpoenaed who testified we saw some footage some really shocking footage, which you showed again of the attorney general bar, uh, and even the president's own daughter. saying that he was not correct that it was inaccurate that the election had been
9:16 am
stolen. so i think what they're starting to do is to kind of unfurl. the evidence and the smoking gun. if you will, that they have that there was a seditious conspiracy that started top now i want to emphasize that this is our own sitting president. who was conspiring to steal an election to potentially stay in as long as he wants as an autocrat. ah and was attempting to coordinate so far from a distance, but with several fascist groups, and that is pretty startling evidence and i think there's going to be more to come. you know about these hearings you did. there is a section of the country who thinks who have been saying pretty loudly on social media that this is just political theater. and then a lot of people are saying that's ridiculous. these are serious charges politically, now is the republican party basically
9:17 am
staking its claim to say this is all politics. and is that going to have an effect on the midterm elections? well i think that the democrats hope that it will affect the outcome of the midterm elections in the next presidential election because they're not doing very well in the polls. but i think that the republicans argument is really a distraction from the reality that this potential seditious conspiracy goes all the way up f the house. and several members of the senate of the republican party who actively engaged in trying to delay the certification and the final counting of the electoral college votes. um in fact, we saw video evidence last year of one member of the house, actually opening a side door for these seditious rioters to enter into the capitol building. we also heard something new yesterday that a member of congress or republican actually petitioned the president for a
9:18 am
pardon. a preemptive pardon because of his role in this, so i think the republicans need to try to get the attention off of them because many of them are actually complicit in what the house committee is going to be informing us about. university senior lecturer university, jose state university senior lecturer robert obits. thank you for joining us. we'll be watching these hearings very closely. thank you, sir. the next hearings will come this monday and wednesday at seven a.m. dates of least three more hearings will be announced at a later time world leaders are wrapping up the summit of the americas in los angeles today. governor gavin newsom greeted canadian prime minister justin trudeau at the california science center in los angeles yesterday. canada and california , signed a joint memorandum of understanding to collaborate on fighting climate change. the planet is running a fever. the hearts are getting a lot hotter drives are getting drier. how do
9:19 am
you as canada see california and the value of doing something california's consistent leadership matters, not just for the weight of the california economy and population. but it's an example of how to do things how to look at climate change. the agreement includes information sharing on a number of topics. both california and canada have committed to conserving 30% of land and waters by the year 2030. according to the napa county d. a no decision has been made yet on charges in the dui arrest case of the husband of house speaker nancy pelosi. paul pelosi has a court appearance set for august. 3rd the district attorney's office says it's received hundreds of angry calls on unfounded reports on social media, claiming all charges against mr pelosi have been dropped. well today, the warriors are getting a chance to redeem themselves in boston tonight, coming up on mornings on to the nine steph curry says about playing tonight despite

9:25 am
is trying to collect that money by turning over unpaid bills to the dmp. going back 18 months to the beginning of last year, hundreds of thousands of bridge crossers had failed to pay one or more in tolls before penalties and in the penalties and it's skyrockets to 184 million most people play by the rules. but there are some people that evidently just refused to play by the rules, if not paid a $7 toll, with penalties assessed after invoices are ignored. can rise to $22. the bay area toll authority reports almost 400,000 scofflaws. oh, between 22 $88, some 13,000 drivers have racked up bills in excess of $1600 each hence the 184 million. the
9:26 am
problem grew back in march of 2020 when human toll takers were eliminated, and the option to pay cash at the tollgate went away in favor of invoices sent to non fast track crossers. too often unpaid obligation to collect tolls. the barrier total authority is responsible to pay off voter approved bonds used for bridge maintenance, seismic retrofits and voter approved transportation projects. we're still making payments on the on those bonds. those who do pay say this, even though it sounds like it's you know, taking your money per se, it's what you owed , so i, it seems like that would be a logical thing to do. i think it's a great idea. a lot of people are getting away with it. i mean, we have fast track with all of our cars and we tried to abide by the law, and i agree with it once the unpaid toll is transferred to the department of motor vehicles, it's either pay it all off or no registration for your car.
9:27 am
people can pre qualify for a payment program. individuals or households can pay overtime if they meet certain low income requirements. up to 200% of the federal poverty level, which is approximately $55,000 for a family of four. bottom line. get fast track as 79% of other bridge crossers already have tom baker, ktvu fox two news. leaders at the bart police department say they're working to fill more than two dozen openings, the police chief at alvarez told the park board of directors department wants to hire 26 officers to fill vacant positions on a force with more than 200 sworn officers. the chief says. the problem isn't that officers are quitting, but rather they're losing senior officers to retirement. our goal is to fill all 26 vacancies that we currently have today. and once we do that we have our general managers commitment to open up more positions to continue to grow our department.

9:30 am
be that the only place where you won't see temperatures at or above 90 degrees today, if you find yourself in san francisco or right there on the coast, you'll be alright. but boy for the rest of us, it's going to get hot and maybe it's already hot where you are. let's talk

9:32 am
happening with this series. absolutely friday night at six o'clock, i think a lot of people you'll be able to go to the store. if you're not a basketball fan at all. in the east bay and san francisco and just, you know, kind of walk right up because people are going to be in there and one of the things i know about the warriors is that you don't count them out down two games to one, but they could easily come back and tie the series and then we have a ball game again, so to speak. alright police in the boston area had been warning about nba playoff ticket scams, and now there has been an arrest boston police say 29 year old connecticut men allegedly in possession of forged or counterfeit tickets, was arrested near the td garden. about an hour and a half before game three officers also learned the suspect was wanted on an outstanding warrant for alleged ford's admission tickets and unlicensed ticket sales. that person now has a date in court. now. the new number is just out this morning on inflation that were even worse than what financial experts had predicted. lauren blanchard tells us how pressure is mounting on leaders in

according to the latest quinnipiac polling. inflation is the most urgent issue facing the country. the federal reserve is expected to contain in you to raise interest rates again this month. and next to cool the economy behind flay shin numbers will cause the fed, maybe to break the economy. i mean, hopefully they can engineer smooth landing a soft landing, but this does make it incredibly tough to do that. the labor department also reported an increase in average hourly wages , but when combined with the increase in inflation the real take home pay. it's actually less in washington. lauren blanchard, ktvu fox two news. and we'll keep checking stocks as we have been all morning. the entire session in the red dao jones is down by almost 2.5% points losing right about 800 points, right now s and p is down by well over 2.5. nasdaq is still the lowest of all losing almost 3.5% points. markets closed at one o'clock, and we'll watch him till then. gas prices have reached a new national high for the 14th day in a row, according to triple a. the

valley, so we think we have a pretty good plan to keep everybody in and out of here pretty quickly. well jill gregory, i'm excited for you guys. i know that this is a big weekend. you know, one of the things about the nascar i do want to mention is this last year or so they've gotten the new next gen cars, so i think i'm gonna come back and see these cars. they're really great . and i'm excited for your weekend. thank you for joining us. thanks for having me look forward to seeing you out here, all right? there's been relatively little news about the fate of a w nba star detained in russia now for almost four months, brittney griner was taken into russian custody at the moscow airport back in mid january after russian officials said they found cannabis oil in her luggage. the u. s state department later classified her as wrongfully detained now in american who spent almost three years detained in russia is calling on the white house to do more to free grinder. this has been a big topic on fox sol, a streaming channel that looks at life through the african
9:40 am
american lens. we welcome as we do every week, the host of the black report. good morning to you, demi lobo. good morning, garcia. it is so great yet again . we missed you last week. we missed each other last week. but we're back and i'm so excited to speak with you today. i'm happy you're here. we have to talk about what trevor reid said he's the recently freed american veteran. he made it very clear that there are racist and homophobic issues in play. when it comes to brittney griner is detention. absolutely you know, he said a lot. actually he is recently released. he's doing a lot of speaking right now. and you know for a good cause. he's trying to help brittney griner get freed and another person that's also currently in russia right now, and so he's saying that. hey you know what britney runners in a worse position because she is a part of the lgbtq plus community as well as a black woman, and he says, a lot of people in russia are racism. so this is going to be a large part. why hey, she could not be released very soon, or even in russia for much longer than we ever expected. so happy that is speaking out, and i'm hoping that his message sends a
9:41 am
message to the vitamin astray shin and everyone else who needs to know we need to get brittney griner home immediately. how do you think your viewers are looking at what's happening between russia and ukraine and whether or not that's impacting brittney griner detention or release well, you know, it's really great. also lebron james has spoken out and so he's a very big icon in our community, so it was really great to hear him speak out the w n b. a. they've spoken out different nba players and warby g on their uniforms for play, and when they're playing in the nba, and so it's really great to see an outcry from our prominent figures speaking out on brittney griner detention in russia, so that's really great, but still there's so much more that needs to be done. you know, it's so interesting because it when this originally happened, we were like, okay, we need to keep it low a low profile and just do the work behind the scenes to get her released and not make too much of a fuss. and now that is transformed into hey, we need to be more loud about getting brittney griner home because her life depends on it. um, we
9:42 am
thought initially just you know, we could just do a fight to get her home. she would come home now. it just seems like it's life or death. now let's move to a recently released report here in california, the california reparations task force just released a large report seen as the first step toward repairing harm done to descendants of enslaved people in our state. covers wealth gap education, health issues. this is coming at a time that the governor has an awful lot on his plate. do your viewers have a lot of hope that this report really is a good first step? i do think this is a good first step with, you know, governor gavin newsom when he had the recall election, the black americans, we rallied behind him, and i think ever since then he's been trying to make things right with the black community in california, and we're happy to see him do that. you know, i thought it was very interesting that he said, you know what? i'm not even worried about lawlessness. i'm worried about gas prices, but it's not my priority. i'm really worried about slavery reparations, and so absolutely this is really great to see. governor gavin newsom putting slavery
9:43 am
reparations at the top of his priority list. he mentioned that he was going to start the task force in may of last year. and so i've been iffy. i think i told you before i've been iffy about reparations task force and the whole reparations movements . we've seen them in different states. but here in california, i do believe because he's making it such a priority. this might be we might be the first state to actually get a real reparations movement taking taking care of for black americans in california, so i think we might be the first to do it. what are some of the key factors from the report? your viewers are really focusing on well again that he's making it more important over everything else. i think that is really what we were talking about just yesterday. actually that governor gavin newsom is saying, hey, we understand that the gas prices are important, understand that there's homeless crisis going on. we understand this gun reform and other things that are on my list. but letting the black americans know in this in california. you guys are my first priority. i care about you. i see you. you what? what you went through in your family and your ancestors went through
9:44 am
is important to me. so that means the world right now to hear that from your governor. and of course, a lot of other cities and states are also looking at the same issues themselves. all right, we'll have to leave it here, demi. thank you so much for joining us. we'll see you next week. thank you guys. see a we'll see you next week. you have a wonderful weekend, of course, and until then, a quick reminder here to watch foxhole online at fox hill dot tv.on the foxhole r apple and android devices. well it's about to get easier for tourists to visit the us coming up on mornings on tuesday nine announcement expected from the white house when it comes to covid-19 and travel plus, the fda is getting ready to roll out covid shots for kids under five after the break the plans being laid out by the a cure would mean to my kids that they get their mom back. and people would be saying, hey, remember ms? if no one would have to ever experience this, it would just change the world. big tobacco's cigarette butts filter practically nothing
