3:07 pm
before the kinkade fire started. but then still investigating. >> things are calm right now with the winds. but we need to evacuate. >> we are in a position where we are reliving something but we are ahead of it. everybody in our community needs to get the heck out of the way of the first responders so they can do their job. reporter: the governor is expected to hold a press conference any moment on the power outages. state officials will continue to monitor these wildfires that have been spreading throughout the state. jon: the diablo winds in northern california and santa ana winds in southern california
3:08 pm
fueling the fires. and they are bracing for what could be the strongest wind storm in years. >> good evening. the red flagging warnings remain in effect for portions of california and nevada. even those winds have been trying to subside, they will be picking back up again saturday through sunday. the accuweather storm max is calling for winds up to 70-90-mile-per-hour. with the next trough year track. they will bring about the cooler temperatures. much-needed relief for the firefighters. the bad news is that's the culprit for the winds to increase. you will notice that late sunday into monday. on top of that, dry air is dominating the southwest region
3:09 pm
as indicated by the low dew point temperatures. the winds will be ramming back up again. by late monday to tuesday we get a brief window of opportunity for some relief. and we still have a lot of dry air in place which is not good. a second trough will be moving on through. we'll get back to the classic santa ana event monday and tuesday night into wednesday. let's just say mother nature is not giving you have the break for that as we go through the work and school week. the winds have been relentless. you can expect more of the this monday. we had wind gusts shy of 90 miles per hour in berrego springs in southern california. and 80-mile-per-hour gusts are
3:10 pm
widespread. the kinkade fire is still not contained and it started october 21. the tick fire started on the 24th in the afternoon. as we go into the next couple of days we'll continue to track those winds and the low dew point temperatures. the only good news is we have cooler air, so we are no longer talking about temperatures in the 90s. so at least all those crews battling the fires will be working with cooler temperatures. but the winds are not going to back down within the next few days. lauren, thank you. turning to eastern syria where the pentagon is preparing to deploy hundreds of troops. 1,000 soldiers are being
3:11 pm
withdrawn from the turkish border. mark esper says the new plan is to protect oilfield from isis. >> we are taking actions to insure that we can deny isis access to the oil fields. we want to make sure they don't have access to the resources to strike within the region, to strike europe, to strike the united states. reporter: the ceasefire in northern syria has been shaky. we are hearing reports it may well be crumbling. 50 miles west of where we are today turkish militia moved into a kurdish arab town, they used mortar strikes and drones. this all happening as a u.s. army convoy was seen driving south towards the oil fields. it appears this is where
3:12 pm
previous troops headed to. the president said he will send troops in to guard oil fields. today we met with families who fled from this region fighting. they told us how radical islamic fighters, allies with al qaeda are fighting for turkey. they went door to door looking for kurds, kidnapping some, killing some, and burning houses to ought ground. these soldiers described to us the horrible burning sensation they felt after shells landed near them. they tried to rub sand over their bodies. we have been hearing accusations of war crimes in northern syria. turkey denies all of them. that being said, the ceasefire
3:13 pm

3:14 pm
from the initial recovery of our victims. >> british police charged a 25-year-old truck driver with manslaughter after 39 bodied were found in a locked and sealed container last wednesday. police arrested a fifth person in connection with the case. this follows the gruesome discovery of 39 bodies in the back of a truck east of london wednesday. the truck crossed over from belgium overnight. the people transported in the locked and sealed container were trying to reach the u.k. illegally. the container was refrigerated which obscured thermal scanning
3:15 pm
devices. the victims were originally thought to be chinese migrants. but their family in vietnam said they received a farewell text from their daughter saying she couldn't breathe and was going to die. the family said their daughter paid traffickers in the hope of pursuing a new life in britain. many vietnamese families are waiting for news of missing loved ones, too, and the government in vietnam is helping police with the investigation. police are trying to track down the wider network behind his people smuggling case. it's the worst incident of this kind in recent years. jon: it's 100 days to the iowa caucuses. but most of of the heavyweights are campaigning in another early voting state. why they are spending their weekend in south carolina.

3:20 pm
jon: seven democratic hopefuls attended a forum at a historically black college. some of them slammed president trump who attended yesterday for comparing the impeachment to a lynching. >> the president compares his impeachment, a constitutional process he brought on himself, to lynching, which to be clear is a pattern of white supremacist terrorism, and claims this gives him insight into the criminal justice system. it means he does not know what
3:21 pm
reform is about. reporter: serve of the democratic candidate spoke at the forum at an historically black college. but none more forcefully than senator kamala harris. >> what do we have in donald trump? someone who dares, dares to use the word lynching. with the blood that has been poured on the soil of south carolina and so many places. and dares to talk about his victimization. reporter: in addition to the lynching comment kamala harris was referring to something president trump said when he spoke at this forum yesterday when he seems to equate the
3:22 pm
unfairness of the ongoing impeachment inquiry with the unfairness some african-americans have had to deal with in the criminal justice system. president trump: we never let up to make sure the justice system is fair for americans. i have my own experience. you see what's going on with the witch hunt. reporter: president trump also received a criminal justice award at this forum, and that was too much for senator kamala harris. she pulled out yesterday and only got back in today after the group was removed as a sponsor. >> the fact of the matter is, donald trump was given an award, he was given a platform. he was unchecked for close teen hour. the bipartisan justice center
3:23 pm
allowed him to create an illusion he had support from hbcu. reporter: joe biden is wrapping up. he's got three more tomorrow. south carolina a heavy focus for all the democratic candidates this weekend. joe biden in particular. that voting is now exactly a hundred days away in iowa. 100 days away. jon: joe biden's campaign says it's dropping its opposition to super pac cash as the campaign struggles to match rivals'

3:29 pm
do your asthma symptoms ever hold you back? about 50% of people with severe asthma have too many cells called eosinophils in their lungs. eosinophils are a key cause of severe asthma. fasenra is designed to target and remove these cells. fasenra is an add-on injection for people 12 and up with asthma driven by eosinophils. fasenra is not a rescue medicine or for other eosinophilic conditions. fasenra is proven to help prevent severe asthma attacks, improve breathing, and can lower oral steroid use. fasenra may cause allergic reactions. get help right away if you have swelling of your face, mouth, and tongue, or trouble breathing. don't stop your asthma treatments unless your doctor tells you to. tell your doctor if you have a parasitic infection or your asthma worsens. headache and sore throat may occur.
3:30 pm
haven't you missed enough? ask an asthma specialist about fasenra. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. president trump: investigate the investigate yors. whether it's strzok and page or clapper and comey and all these people because terrible things went on for our country. we have a great attorney general, a highly prestigious man, an honorable man, and they have been looking at it for a long time. jon: president trump reacting to the news that the attorney general's probe into the origins of the 2016 investigation has
3:31 pm
turned into a full-flernlged criminal investigation. james clapper and john brennan were obviously top intelligence officials in the obama administration, and we are told that durham wants to talk to both of them. >> news much this comes at an interesting time. it comes from the context of president trump facing testimony about the current ukraine controversy as part of the impeachment probe in the house. president trump on the south lawn when he discussed this probe, he attempted to equate the russia probe and the ukraine investigation saying in both cases he did nothing wrong. so this certainly is a politically useful moment for president trump. there are of course several enduring histories of the
3:32 pm
origins of the russia probe, or conspiracy theories to explain what happened. one of the particularly interesting elements is the fact that the probe started after the discussion by a maltese academic who has since gone mission, joseph mifsud. he told george papadopoulos that the russians had dirt on hillary clinton and that's results in an fbi probe of trump campaign links to russia. attorney general barr went to italy and listened to a secret recording of his maltese academic. where this goes remains to be scene. but certainly good news politically for president trump and illuminating for the origins. jon: this thing has become so political, mark warner democrats on the senate intelligence committee says senate intel is wrapping up a three-year
3:33 pm
investigation and we found nothing remotely warranting this investigation. he says barr needs to come before congress to explain himself. is the attorney general likely to be summoned to capitol hill? >> of course the attorney general testified periodically about various issues in congress' oversight role. but the criminal probe by the u.s. attorney in connecticut is certainly something that is to some degree autonomous from the attorney general. what the u.s. attorney, who uses his power to investigate remains to be seen. shirt as part of the criminal probe he could bring charges. we don't know who night face charges. but andrew mccabe has been accused of lying to james comey and fbi agents repeatedly.
3:34 pm
theoretically he could face charges, though that was about the clinton foundation. but certainly it puts former government officials in the hot seat and it will be interesting to watch where it goes. jon: andrew mccabe did face charges. but he did lie to fbi agents, he lied to his boss. >> we have flown that for a year and there are no criminal charges. it's unclear what the criminal investigation by durham is about. jon: now we know at least a judge has said that the democrats who are investigating, want to impeach president trump should be allowed to see the unredacted portions of the muller report.
3:35 pm
it's likely that decision will be appealed. but if the intel commit eat gets that report unredacted. what are they going to see? >> there are about a thousand redactions in the mueller report. one surprising thing people might not appreciate is all of the redactions aren't necessarily going to damage president trump. one of the reactions i was able to unredact through reporting, it concerns an allegation that the russians intercepted a phone sex conversation of president clinton when he was in office potentially making him vulnerable to blackmail. there may be surprises in there. jon: tom mcclintock says the ruling on the mueller investigation transcripts will be challenges. >> that ruling is not the last word on the subject, it's the
3:36 pm
first word by an obama-appointed judge. this judge's decision flies in the face much the principles enshrined in u.s. v. nixon and it will be appealed. >> you should never guess one court decisions could come down. and this could go on for quite a while. there are various reasons why some of these' redactions were made. it's not like the redactions are justified on one particular pointed. you can imagine striking out for a while. >> there is growing fallout for congresswoman katie hill. the california democrat is facing a house ethics investigation. the "washington examiner"
3:37 pm
reporting the congresswoman's campaign continued to pay that staffer thousands of dollars as a consultant. payments that went well into 2019. hill acknowledged the relationship saying she allowed it to happen against her better judgment. catholics along the amazon region are pushing to have the hope orgain of -- -- ordain married men as priests. he said he would prepare a document on the recommendations from the deacons by the end of the year. rudy giuliani left' a call for

prescription power. proven to work. jon: rudy giuliani accidentally dialed an nbc news reporter during the night twice. in a 3-minute voicemail he's heard trashing the bide's and discussing his needs for cash. >> an unfortunately case of what seems to be a redial. that reporter had spoken with
3:43 pm
juliany earlier in the evening. he can be heard talking to what sounds like a in the same room as him. it's unclear what the context of the conversation is. but he said a man named charles would have had a hard time with a fraud case. but he hadn't done his work. the reporter says it's not the first time he has gone the a butt dial from the president's lawyer. he spent three minutes disparaging the bidens repeating that joe biden prevented the investigation of ukrainian gas companies because his son was on the board. giuliani has been eager to investigate that claim. in the recording the man with
3:44 pm
giuliani says he has the truth on his side. >> more to come. reporter: biden's campaign said poor rudy is so scared for his boss that he's all about biden mode in his down time. the president tweeted last night. to tim, the button on the iphone was far better than the swipe. he said the accidental call is
3:45 pm

>> it's so stressful. you are not used to having a lot of hair. it's so great. you know. you have your opportunity to 5-4, then you come in the 8th or 9th. and thinking about those 3 outs. reporter: so much focus will be on the players. there is also a lot of focus on what's behind the scenes. we had a chance to catch up with the mlb's authenticating team to make sure no one is collecting unauthenticated items. it could be game use bats, baseballs, jerseys, dirt, as long as the authenticator is
