washington with what we can expect on capitol hill today. it is going to be a big day for republ republicans. good morning. >> reporter: sam, good morning. what to expect on capitol hill is a tough one to answer today because while technically we know that it's a vote about opening debate on health care, what plan? that we don't know. >> madam president -- >> reporter: today the senate the is expected to decide whether to debate health care. >> the only way we'll have an opportunity to consider ideas if we can offer and debate them. >> reporter: there are three options, repeal obamacare and replace it later, repeal and replace it now, or throw in things like cheaper, leaner insurance plans to get skeptical conservatives onboard. >> are you going to get the votes? you'd better get them. he'd better get them. otherwise i'll say, tom, you're fired. >> reporter: the boy scouts last night, president trump insisted

5:07 am
point at $800 million. now this is the very early stage of the talks, though. tonight's meeting is one of the first steps to get the ball rolling but the water district is likely to hear a lot of questions about the price and about why the district needs a new reservoir when it spilled over water this winter. here is the head of the silicon valley taxpayer association. >> they are currently draining water out of the current reservoirs so they need more capacity but they're draining water. so it seems to be at odds with one another. >> reporter: we've been digging into the story since last week but coming up at 6:00 i'll show you where the money could come from and what it could mean for customers and rate payers. and right now on my facebook page you can find the agenda item here at the santa clara water district tonight. post a story that we did previously so you can be prepared if you want to stop in and have your say.

sessions to quit. sessions was the very first senator to support trump's candidacy. trump told "the new york times" he would never have appointed sessions if he had known ahead of time the attorney general was going to recuse himself from the russian investigation. trump also attacked fbi direct andrew mccabe, the acting fbi direct or, saying mccabe acceptd money. trump is frustrated the fbi is not investigating his former political opponent. mccabe, of course, replaced james comey after trump fired comey. so here is the tweet. problem is that the acting head of the fbi and the person in charge of the hillary investigation, andrew mccabe, got $700,000 from h for wife. that is factually inaccurate. mccabe got $700,000 from h, hillary, i presume, is simply wrong. mccabe's wife ran for office and
