6:04 am
>> they say that rivera, an undocumented immigrant from mexico, followed tibbetts and abducted her after she threatened to call police. rivera told police he blacked out and found tibbetts headphones in his lab and her body in the trunk of his car. result of an autopsy are still pending, but is believed the remains are those of tibbetts found in a cornfield hidden under corn stock leaves. authorities did not reveal a cause of death that an autopsy is set to begin today. no motive was given for tibbetts murder. tibbetts was to start her junior year of college this week . in the newsroom with ktvu fox2 news. president trump at a rally in west virginia referred to the killing of molly tibbetts and he blames the nation's immigration laws for the tragedy. >> you heard about today with the illegal alien coming in.

6:06 am
the swift action by local, state, and federal investigators working in iowa in apprehending an illegal immigrant was now charged with first-degree murder. now justice will be served. we will never forget molly tibbetts. that from vice president penn. -- vice president mike pence. paul manafort found guilty on eight counts of financial crimes. he was convicted on five counts of tax fraud, two counts of bank fraud, and one count of hiding foreign bank accounts. the jury deadlocked well -- onto another counts. michael cohen, president trump former longtime attorney, admitted in court that he was directed to arrange payments to two women during the 2016 election to keep them from talking about alleged affairs they had with mister trump years before he ran for office. cohen acknowledged these payments while pleading guilty to campaign finance charges. justin 20 minutes ago president
6:07 am
trump tweeted this, if anyone is looking for a good lawyer i would strongly suggest you don't retain the services of michael cohen. joining us now is doug luzader from washington. you have been covering this story. what did the verdicts against michael manafort and michael cohen mean for president trump? >> reporter: the manafort case is different. the white house will no doubt point out the fact that none of these charges have anything to do with the reason why the special counsel was graded in the first place, to investigate possible election collusion or even obstruction of justice. this was an effort to get paul manafort to cooperate. he refused and the prosecutors really went after him. he will ultimately face prison time. the other case, the one involving trump's personal attorney, michael cohen, is different because of those specific charges involving campaign-finance violations. those could entangle the president. he could, in
6:08 am
theory, face charges that seems unlikely. what is more likely that if democrats win control of the house of representatives they may very well use this as a basis for impeachment expect there's a lot going on. going back to paul manafort, whether the conviction -- what does the conviction in that case made in the mueller investigation? >> reporter: it is the first row convictions they have one taking someone to court. it is a significant win for mueller. it doesn't necessarily move the ball forward in terms of approving either election collusion or obstruction of justice. will they be able to build pressure on manafort to cooperate with investigators while his sentencing hangs over him? maybe so. manafort is resisting that pressure up to now and may really be holding out for a presidential pardon. >> one more quick question. these guilty verdicts, could they hurt republicans in the midterm elections?
6:09 am
>> these are always possible to cut both ways. on the one hand it democrats will use this to point to what they see as corruption at the white house. on the other hand, the president may use this to try to motivate turnout amongst his most vocal supporters saying they are out to get me and we need to have you show up at the polls. >> always get information. doug luzader is live in from washington. the man accused of stabbing and killing 18-year-old nia wilson on an oakland park platform last month is expected to enter a plea this morning. john lee cowell has been charged with killing nia wilson and the attempted murder of her sister who survived the attack -- attack july 22 at the macarthur bart station in oakland. cowell was on parole at the time of the killing. this morning at 9:00 cowell will be at the alameda county superior court house. stanford university police
