12:28 pm
powerful elite and the war machine, they will destroy you and discredit your message. >> at the heart of clinton's accusation is that if gabbard leaves the democratic primary process to run as a third-party candidate, it would sap votes away from democrats and help trump. gabbard insists that's not going to happen. >> ever consider running as a third-party candidate? >> i have set over and over the answer is no. i encourage you to look at what i've already said. >> clinton claims her concern is gabbard could help trump but president trump said this afternoon he thinks the whole episode helps gabbard. >> trace: peter doocy live in des moines. thank you. four people have died from an outbreak linked to a hot tub display at a state fair. health officials say almost 150 others got sick from legionnaires' disease. that's a serious time of the pneumonia caused a specific type of bacteria.

statement. >> trace: at 11:30 he confesses in an overnight come in the morning, he takes them to the body and then he is mirandized. everything that happens before that, prosecutors are saying we will allow it to be taken out but we are still going to be able to use it against him. explain it. >> what they are saying is, it gets complicated. fourth amendment law. they are saying they're going to make some arguments such as inevitable discovery, that they will not use his statements but they would have found the body anyway. if he takes the stand and says something differently, then the statements will come in. what is lawyers are trying to do is trying to eliminate everything, saying it was involuntary. you have to ask, midnight, 6:00 a.m., how voluntary were the statements? >> trace: it's true but it wasn't a false statement and that's key in this. he brought them to the body. it's not like they are saying this false confession.
12:49 pm
clearly he had the details. he knew, looks like he is the guy. >> we don't know. this is one of those things. there are false confessions. numerous studies where people confess falsely when they are in custody. that's why miranda rights -- ski want to go t to the body. >> we don't know all the details and we don't know what led them there. what we are saying is he could have and i imagine that will be the defense theory, that it was a false confession. what they're trying to do is trying to eliminate the whole thing think it was involuntary. if it's involuntary, the statements don't come in at all. given the defense thing we want it thrown out and we think that confession was totally coerced. they said you should do the right thing, you have a young daughter, your daughters going to want to see you. this is the right thing, confess to it and it's all going to go away. >> wright, classic good cop-black cop. somebody must've played bad cop during this thing. that's the kind of thing, why the local people decide to play around. when i was a prosecutor and i
12:50 pm
would investigate, we would go on sure to make sure detectives didn't screw up, especially when it came to questioning the suspect. >> trace: rivera is an illegal immigrant. does that play into it? >> not at all. guarantee the protections of the constitution. >> trace: if the prosecution goes around it, you're saying if he were to take the stand, that's when they've got him. >> it depends on what the judge rules. if the judge rules the statements were not voluntary and they were course, they don't come in and they can't use the statements. >> trace: i know it's legal wrangling and stuff but for the family, this is awful. it's an awful thing. for the tibbetts family to go through. how frequent is it that police or investigators make this kind of mistake? >> all too often. that's the reality. i've seen it as a prosecutor and
12:51 pm
criminal defense attorney. this is obviously a horrible thing to have happened to their daughter. i understand that it's a protection of all people. if the cops are going to take shortcuts here with somebody, such a heinous crime, such a bad person. imagine what they will do the person is not so bad. when it comes down to you and me or the people we care about. want to make sure cops are doing their job and that's the reason for these protections. >> trace: any chance he walks? >> yes. yes. if they ultimately can't tie him to the body, then this he walks. >> trace: thank you. it is deadline day for thousands of folks in california to file claims for damage from wildfires over the past two years. nearly half of all folks eligible haven't done it. what you need to know is next. plus, lots of people in texas trying to clean up without any power after a tornado ripped through the dallas area. we'll take a look at the damage coming up. great news for my fellow veterans.
