"There were one point three million people who were diagnosed newly with diabetes in twenty seventeen. But if you go back to two thousand nine eight years ago before that actually is one point seven million. Obesity. Rates have been remaining steady. So what gives what's, what's the reason doctors, aren't exactly sure, but they have a couple of ideas. Why one of them is they started a new sort of testing. It's a new way to check out and see if people are diabetic. They think that might have weeded out more people through that. And also this one's key, a lot more. Doctors are seeing patients who are on the way to becoming diabetic pre diabetic. You know, you go to the doctor, and they say, look, your blood sugars getting high, you need to change your diet, you need to start exercising if you don't want to contract diabetes later in your life, and that is what doctors think people who've been doing paying attention to that. And, you know, big, not becoming diabetic as a result, is this sort of just a statistical anomaly, thought there was kind of the knowledge that obesity, does somehow have a connection to diabetes. That's the conclusion in what you do is you're slowly putting on weight. The obesity levels have been staying the same. But, you know, doctors are kind of catching it earlier. So they're saying, okay if you actually do change their your your, your way that you exercise in the way that you eat. You can debate stave off diabetes. You can keep it from coming. So doctors have been saying these new blood tests come out. They want to make sure that people, you know, have they're getting the right levels of into their blood, and then they're gonna see. Okay.

He's been charged with computer hacking by the United States the charges connected to the WikiLeaks. Release of classified documents from former army private Chelsea Manning. Assange arrested on an extradition request from the US and for violating U K bail conditions. Let's go to our KOMO Newsline. Brad Garret CBC's crime and terrorism analyst is with us. Brad. Do you see Assange making a back to the US anytime soon? I don't know about any time soon. But I do see him making his way back here. I mean, as you just mentioned, there's three jurisdictions. He has to deal with jumping bail the British. You know, look dimly among people jumping bail. So they're probably not going to let him out of jail Sweden wants him on on a. Mhm rape allegations. And we want him obviously on tons of stuff. Wikileaks leaks in effect that were stolen. He's a big trouble in my guess is he's not going to get out of jail anytime soon. Let's switch gears. I want to ask you about something else that the attorney general embar said yesterday, he used the word spying when referring to FBI activities against Donald Trump's presidential campaign spying on a political campaign is a big deal. How do you take this is the FBI in the business of spying or was it a legitimate investigation? I think clearly it was a legitimate destination. I if you listen to him further, he you know, he he goes to the term of unauthorized surveillance which. For so many like me that translates into the agents had faulty intelligence. So which I also think probably is not accurate, but the point being is that you know, he has I think basic concerns about how this investigation got launched. So again, me totally looking at tea leaves and guessing here, he's really more focused on upper management, like McCabe and Komi who got fired, of course. And then John Brennan who was head of the CIA back in two thousand sixteen before it's too. What were their motivations in law in this case, which I'm going to guess, there's nothing there either? But you know, the the the attorney general kept using words like I'm just concerned. Well, that's fine. That's appropriate. I think by a new attorney general, and we'll see where it goes. But by using the words spy, I mean, it's such a you loaded term. I think it's now generated all sorts of. Oh, my goodness response. Is for people. What do you think internally the FBI right now, the reaction is to having the nation's top law enforcement officer accused the bureau of spying? Well, I not favorably. But I think there's sort of been used to being bashed because they've been you know, taking a lot of heat since since twenty seventeen. So, you know, it's it's it's sadly, not a particularly good time to be in the government because there seems to be so much negative attention. Instead of all terrific work.

I can relate. And I'm sure. For the receiving end. Just. Do they BBC news? Correspondent Karen Travers with us from the White House. Good morning. Karen, Kim morning, the president explained how he can relate to these workers. He didn't. That's what you heard him say there over the weekend. But you know, he has said for several days now that he has been talking to federal employees in that they support him on this that they back his push for border security. They understand the need for border security, and we've asked the White House. Yeah. Who's he talking to how is he having this interaction with federal employees impacted by this? And they haven't said I will say that the employees that we have spoken to in this area and across the country overwhelming. They say that they just want to get back to work. They're very worried about missing a paycheck at the end of this week. And they don't wanna be upon in this nasty political fight right now happening in Washington. Have there been any changes to the plan for the wall? The White House is considering the president declaring a national emergency. Because of what they say is a crisis on the border, and what they hope that that could do is allow the president to take money. That's been appropriated for something else. Money for the defense department and shifted towards building the wall he wants on the US Mexico border. This will certainly face a legal challenge. You can't take money that congress has approved for one thing and put it to another thing it's against the law to do that. So they're trying to do it by declaring a national emergency legal experts. We talked to late last week say even that's a bit skeptical that they not sure you can even do that. It might not make a difference by declaring the national emergency water House, Democrats, planning to do to try and force this issue vote as they did last week to reopen the parts of the government that are shut down right now last week. They did it in two different waves one fund everything that's closed except for D H S through September thirtieth. That was one Bill it passed. As of course, we expected it would the next to fund the H S through February eighth. Mitch McConnell in the Senate is not moving forward on any of this. Because they say they won't until the president indicates he would sign something. So that's where it stood this week. Nancy Pelosi is going to separate all that out. One vote to open interior one vote to open treasury one vote to open the agriculture department, and challenged the Senate Republicans to take this up again, there's no indication the president was going to sign it. So it's not gonna go anywhere, but pay attention this week to see if there are more cracks in Senate Republicans we have a handful of them who late last week. We're saying we got to end this. We ought to reopen the government at least the non D H S parts, and the White House has not given a policy reason of why the president wouldn't do that. He just said last week.

The president has never flat out said, you know, I wouldn't do this in thirty days. This was a very abrupt announcement by the president last week. Of course, it's what led to the resignation of James Mattis as the Defense Secretary. But the signals we got from US officials in December was the president wanted this done in thirty days. All US troops out in thirty days that has involved to a plan that would be happening over months, and we're told there still isn't even a timeline for that withdraw, but certainly over the weekend John Bolton talking that for the first time publicly from the administration acknowledging that this withdrawal is going to be much slower than what had originally been said before we let you go are Seahawks season came to an end over the weekend.

President Trump looks to be sending a peace offering to house speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted today, border security, and the wall thing and shutdown is not where Nancy Pelosi wanted to start her tenure as speaker. Let's make a deal. He says GOP strategist Rick Tyler says Pelosi, we'll have little reason to compromise after she gets a spending Bill passed in the house this week. The point is is that the Democrats will be able to show that they are acting to reopen the government, and it is in fact, Republicans who are blocking them ABC news correspondent Karen Travers joins us from the White House. Happy new year. Karen? I understand there's going to be a little gathering today at the White House with bipartisan leadership from congress. What do we know about that meeting? Yeah. This is not a negotiating session. It could turn into one. But it's not being billed as that. It's a briefing on border security. It will take place in the situation room. Which means we are not going to see any of that. Because of course, that's a secure facility. Maybe they shift somewhere else. Maybe we see from lawmakers come out afterwards and talk to reporters. But I don't think we're gonna see that same moment. Like we did in the Oval Office on December eleventh when the president was negotiating with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi. This is the first time, though, all these congressional leaders actually sat down and talked since the shutdown began we're on day twelve now. And it's the first time he's engaged with Democrats since December eleventh, so maybe that's a slight sign of optimism. But right now, it's going to take a major breakthrough to read some sort of compromise. And there is no indication from either side that they're willing to budge on what they've been insisting on for weeks. If not months the other thing is making headlines. This morning is an op Ed piece that former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, incoming Utah Senator has written questioning President Trump's character. What can you tell us about the president's conduct is evidence that he has not risen to the mantle of the office. Clearly mitt Romney's indicating he is concerned about the status of the US around the world the president's decisions and the actions, the president wants to take the president responded where else in tweets and said that he would prefer Romney, quote, focus on border security, and so many other things where he can be helpful. He calls on Romney to be a team player. I have to say wasn't as harsh as many were expecting. But he did ask Rodney will be a flake seemingly a reference to outgoing Senator Jeff flake who was a frequent critic of the president of the last two years. Well, we're in today. Twelve now of the partial government shutdown what signs of the shutdown to you see around Washington DC today. It's gonna hit today is really the first day back for federal workers after the holiday break state twelve. But for those days were weekends for the days. We're federal holidays. So now, I think you'll really start to see it. And the museums are shut down today, the zoo, the Smithsonian's research centers, they were all able to stay open for those first eleven days because of money from last year's budgets that they were able to make work, but that's it. So if anybody has trips planned to Washington for today, nothing will be open until the government is back up and running and Democrats in in the US house have been indicating their first order of business will be to put up a clean Bill to reopen. The government is there any indication that the White House would expect something like that the president of the White House said yesterday, it's a nonstarter, but the first action then from the Democrats will be passing easily a Bill to reopen two bills to reopen the government and put one point three billion dollars toward border security president, of course, wants funding for the border wall.
