right now at 11:00, it is full steam ahead for democrats. house speaker nancy pelosi announcing they are moving forward with articles of impeachment. thanks for joining us this midday, i'm kris sanchez. >> and i'm scott mcgrew. marcus and laura are off. we brought you the announcement live on "today in the bay" with a special report. >> today i am asking our chairman to proceed with articles of impeachment. i commend our committee chairs and our members for their somber approach to actions which i wish the president had not made necessary. >> pelosi argues president trump's actions and testimony from four legal scholars justify moving forward. a white house spokesperson
tweets that democrats should be ashamed and that they look forward to a fair trial in the senate. now, a reminder, to impeach means to formally accuse the president and direct the senate to hold a trial. so it appears donald trump, the 45th president of the united states, will be impeached. but it's up to the senate to decide whether to throw him out of office. so what happens now? the judiciary draws up articles of impeachment. the house votes. and t president is impeached. let's go back to nancy pelosi, a dramatic moment this morning during the speaker's press conference when she was asked if she hates the president. >> do you hate the president, madam sp'tear? hate anybody. i was raised in a catholic house and nobody hates anybody. not anybody in the world. so don't you accuse me of - acc representative collins yesterday suggested that the democrats are doing this simply because they don't like the guy.
>> that has nothing to do with it. let me just say this. i think the president is a coward when it comes to helping our kids who are afraid of gun violence. i think he is cruel when he doesn't deal with helping our dreamers of which we're very proud. i think he's in denial about the climate crisis.hower, that's ab election. this is about the -- take it up in the election. this is about the constitution of the united states and the facts that lead to the president's violation of his oath of office. as a catholic, i resent your using the word "hate" in a sentence that addresses me. i don't hate anyone. i was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always prayed for the president. i still pray for the president. i pray for the president all the time. so don't mess with me when it comes to words like that. >>
shortly thereafter, president trump tweeted nancy pelosi just
had a nervous fit. she hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and so much more. he's referring to federal judges he's appointing. stock market and employment records. she says she prays for the president. i don't believe her, not even close. help the homeless in your district, nancy. that of course is san francisco. he goes on to write usmca?

the homes in some of the neighborhoods prone to flooding have been raised since that event. everyone here seems to know just how much another major flood could affect san anselmo. >> of course. for business and for us. but eventually the water will go down and life will come back again. >> our house was flooded. we had about 3 feet of water inside of our house on the first floor, on the ground floor. >> yeah. >> so our whole neighborhood had to move out of our houses. >> some people didn't raise their house and they must -- they live in fear of the flooding. and it gets close pretty much every year. >> reporter: back live, you can see once again san anselmo creek just at about 2 feet right now. that flooding from 2015, the creek has come up to 17.8 feet
