shoulder right lane. this is right by 28 just before you hit route 28. again you merge into those two center lanes. i want to show was this is doing to the backed up traffic look at that completely parked at 29. that's where this camera is. it's going take you an hour and nine minutes to get from suddenly road to the beltway because of that. super jammed up from all the way even back to gainsville as you try to get out of centerville and then you have typical congestion passed two lanes get by before 28 so big problems on 66 eastbound is the motto right now. try to leave as early as you can or avoid 66 eastbound because you don't want to sit in that parking lot this morning. as we move things over for a look at 295 southbound there's a crash at benning road. we're down to 8 miles an hour approaching benning road. things open up south of pennsylvania avenue but right now a 15 minute delay from 50 on 295 southbound down to pennsylvania avenue with that crash in the mix. take look at the bottom side of the beltway. now the inner loop starts to jam up after branch avenue to t

result which they were stabbed and beat tepp and the house was set on fire. but a lot has changed in two and a half years since this case. so, um, this episode is very interesting in the sense that marina morocco and paul wagner are on this episode, and they really worked this case when it first came out. so you get an idea of kind of the chaos that happens. you're obviously you already know, you work in this business, but for people listening, um, you get a sense of what this story and just how big it became so quickly. and then also, we really sort of take you through the first week because the first week of this case was really pivotal. so the first episode will get you caught up, and then also in 2015 a lot of information came out which we now know is either changed or different. so i think you'll find that fascinating on this episode. >> interesting. take look what we knew initially. >> right. >> compared to what we know about the same information now. >> correct. >> one of the really cool things you're doing, sarah, you're able to pai

he sent her away. so that he can plan what his planning without interruptions. in that sense, i thank him for sparing my sister's life but wanting to compensate 59 people live. >> reporter: you are also seeing new body camera videos released by police yesterday. maybe we can hear a little bit of that as well. because this was taken from officers who were pinned down behind police cruisers on las vegas boulevard. they didn't even know where the gunfire was coming from at this point. the shooting we're told spanned between nine and 11 minutes. police say paddock had cameras rigged by both outside and inside his hotel room so he could see law enforcement approaching. video recorded through the broken door of the room shows an assault style rifle on a tripod. you can see it between those two pieces of crime tape. now these -- there were also devices found inside

8:09 am
sanctuary industries which i think is a completely wrong approach, but we knew that was going to happen and this is the first time we heard about it in the district of columbia and so as soon as we did we were racking our brains on what it is we thought we shall do. and we thought the best thing we can do is provide services to people to the families. i'm the chair of the committee on education and so i worry about the hem health of the students and the parents that are engaging with our schools. if they're worried about being picked up at any moment, simply for being undo you meaned in the district of columbia, then i think we needed to something about it. >> let me just follow up and ask, though, what about citizens who are here legally? >> what is the concern for their safety if ice says they're getting criminals off the streets who are here illegally. >> i think if people commit criminal acts they should be held accountable for and arrested that. doesn't mean that we should treat somebody who's undo you meaned defendant than somebody who is here legally and as a citizen of the united states. so you know i don't really buy that argument. we can

8:11 am you can go to the blog. see a full list. we probably need to put more money behind that effort. you know, i just think when the federal government goes looking for problem like this, they end up creating more problems than creating solutions for our community. >> to steve's point half million dollars a year going to legal funds for those who are not documented. so i got to ask you, what about the homeless problem in d.c., the disparities in our neighborhoods, education, couldn't this money be used for residents, legal residents of the district? >> well, i believe that these are residents and people we need to care just as much as we fair of care for people who have the paper work to be here. my parents immigrated here. it's not like we all just all of a sudden put here and we're here and no problems. so the fact of the matter is, we have plenty of money in the district of columbia to do what we need to do. schools were increased this year by more than 3% over the previous year. we just finalized a contract for our teachers that'
8:12 am
give them races of 4%, 3% and 2% over the next thee years. this city is doing great. so the least thing we can do is really reach out to our neighbors, care for them and give them the services they need, too. regardless of how they find themselves here. >> you realize as much as anyone by simply saying that, anybody now who feels they're not doing great is will come to you and say, look, we need some money, too. that becomes a financial question down the road as does the bigger issue here because of what the federal government has been talking about and the attorney general has been talking about sanctuary cities in general by now putting yourself in this position and offering this, is that not a bigger target on the nation's capitol to perhaps lose federal funding because of what you're doing? >> we already have pretty big target on our back here in the district of columbia so i'm not worried about that. i think in the end it's more important that we do what we can to care for people. you know, every bit of work i did do in my office is based on human rights framework and it's about what can we do as leaders in this city? what can we do as a city to reach out to our neighbors and take care of them when federal

8:33 am
it this weekend. >> governor, what are you going to be talking about witness president? the two of you go way back and you've had great relationship. is it like sitting down with an old friend for this interview? is the candor that? is it quite relaxed are diving into some pretty heavy hitting topics? >> well, i think because we have known each other for a long time, it's going to be a relaxed interview and we're going to be able to talk to him about his visit to puerto rico and las vegas and all the events that have happened that have been so tragic for this country, and his response to them. but i also think because of that relationship, he's going to be relaxed enough to let his guard down and give us some inside into what -- what's ahead from the policy perspective. but also from a personal perspective of what being president in this kind of environment is all about. i'm convinced it's going to be a fascinating interview to watch. even if i have to say so. >> if do you have to say so yourself. governor, you have host add long running show on the fox news channel had
8:34 am
same time. the show was huckabee then. what makes this incarnation of huckabee different this weekend show you're about to launch? >> well, i think allison the key thing that will be different we'll have a lot more entertainment. we're coming from nashville. so it's natural we're going to have more music, there's going to be lot more variety. there will be political conversation but the focus of it is going to be the way we talk politics in the heartland of america which is more about talking vertical politics. what's up, what's down, what's good, what's bad rather than just the horizontal of the the left and the right. sometimes you watch a political conversation and it's too people yelling at each other talking over each other. you can't even understand it. we want to have kind of conversation you would have on your front porch or around the kitchen table. bringing the issues to people but in a way they can say, hmm, i understand that better. we want to n them. we want to encourage them with great stories of good people, and frankly we want to entertain them a little bit because
8:35 am
down a notch or two and not get everybody's blood pressure to 300 over 200. >> as you're well aware that's one of the best ways to get lot of information out sometimes, as people are relaxed they speak more comfortable and you're getting guests obviously you're comfortable speaking with. i do want to ask you this, governor. because you are part of the media, obviously great history in politics, you are part of the media and your daughter is part of the government now speaking as face for the administration as well. when you personally as a member of the media hear this term fake news being thrown out there, what is your reaction to that? >> well, i think that there is a lot fake news. there's a lot of really unbalanced news. more than it being fake. it's a disproportionate focus on those things which really are not important or maybe they're not verified yet and i do think the american public is not served when they're given a daily dish of what i would call a very anti president
8:36 am
that is often disproportionate to the actual news value. my daughter of course has tough job. she goes out into that room every day and faces, you know, a hostile audience i think it would be fair to say but i think she also understands their role. she respects them, and she doesn't escalate the tension because she realizes just like she has a job to do, so do they. and i think it's been really interesting to watch. i think more respect full atmosphere in the briefing room with her at the podium. >> governor mike huckabee we wish you well on the new show. it premieres on this saturday on the trinity broadcasting network and the set behind you with that life studio audience looks likes you might take the mike and sing a few songs too. >> it's nashville. >> i play play base guitar with the ban. we've got great house band of nashville musicians the studio o we have great studio audience and people can find out how to get our channel going to t and
