6:02 pm
saw what happened to that incredible beautiful young woman. [ yelling ] >> should have never happened. illegally in our country. we have had a huge impact but the laws are so bad. the immigration laws are such a disgrace. >> reporter: rivera's attorney insists that he is here legally but today a federal immigration official tells fox news that rivera never submitted a daca request and there is no record that rivera has immigration status in this country. back to you. >> matt, i can't imagine how hard this must be for mollie tibbetts's family. any comment from any family today about what happened? >> reporter: well, as you guys may well know, mollie tibbetts' father lives in california. he was here on the ground for 30 days pleading for any information related to his daughter's disappearance. and authorities advised him to go back to california and try to get on with life which he did just a few days
6:03 pm
ago. he returned to california and a short while later got this terrible news. we haven't been able to communicate with him. the family released a statement saying their hearts are broken and that they need privacy. >> matt finn in iowa, tonight, thank you. the case is reigniting the immigration case here in california. coming up at 6:30, what the two gubernatorial candidates are saying about the issue. today president trump denied claims by his former attorney that he directed efforts to pay off two women in order to influence the 2016 election. michael cohen pleaded guilty yesterday to violating campaign finance laws. but in an interview on "fox and friends," president trump said he didn't know about the payments ahead of time. >> did you know about the payments? >> later on i knew. later on. but you have to understand, what he did -- and tht of campa finance. that's a big thing.
6:04 pm
that's a much bigger thing. did they come out of the campaign? they didn't come out campaign. they came from me. and i tweeted about it. i don't know if you know, i tweeted about the payments. but they didn't come out of campaign. >> however, last month, cohen released an audiotape of mr. trump apparently discussing one payoff to playboy model karen mcdougal before the election. adult film star stormy daniels also received hush money to stay quiet with an alleged affair with mr. trump years earlier. the president raised more speculation today that he might pardon his former campaign manager paul manafort calling him a brave man on twitter. a jury found manafort guilty of tax evasion and bank fraud yesterday. but the president had this to say about michael cohen: if anyone is looking for a good lawyer, i would strongly suggest that you don't retain the services of michael bogan j washington where the white house defended the president. >> reporter: the white house
6:05 pm
defended the president today but democrats on capitol hill were full throttle attacking. they wanted to postpone the confirmation hearing for brett kavanaugh the president's supreme court nominee. yesterday with everything you just mentioned in those two convictions, one senator even called that are terrible tuesday. >> the president has done nothing wrong. >> reporter: the white house on the offensive engulfed in controversy after monday's two convictions. paul manafort, who once chaired trump's campaign, found guilty of fraud. the president's old fixture michael cohen pleaded guilty to federal felony charges. >> just because michael cohen made a plea deal doesn't mean that that implicates the president on anything. >> reporter: in court, cohen admitted to breaking the law and says then candidate trump ordered him to pay hush money to two women stormy daniels and karen mcdougal. >> if michael cohen with the prosecutors in new york agreeing admitted to that, then certainly donald trump is guilty of the same crime. >> reporter: the president has acknowledged the payment but says it didn't come from any campaign account.
6:06 pm
>> they didn't come out of campaigns. in fact, my first question when i heard about it was, did they come out of the campaign? because that could be a little dicey. >> reporter: mr. trump also tweeting his disdain for cohen while expressing sympathy for manafort, leading to questions about a possible pardon. >> the president certainly seems to be planting the idea that he would be open to a pardon. that's a big deal. >> reporter: now, a big question that has come up out of this is the idea as to whether or not the president can be indicted. and that's not clear. the president's attorneys say he cannot. and then the other question is, impeachment. that is a long ways away. even democrats on capitol hill saying they are far from that. however, if it got that far it would need to go through congress and get a two-thirds majority in the senate. >> ray bogan in washington
6:07 pm
tonight, ray, thank you. democratic house leader most in san francisco today suggested it's too soon to talk about impeachment. >> remains to be seen what the truth is and that will out. that's what we want to do is seek the truth. so we ask questions about impeachment, no, let's seek the truth and see where the truth leads us. but if i were president trump, i would be very worried right now. >> the former house speaker said manafort and cohen cases reflect a culture of corruption, cronyism in washington that democrats need to replace in november. new details tonight about a measles warning out every contra costa county. health officials say the person infected has now recovered. now they are warning people who may have been exposed to that patient. ktvu's rob roth reports. >> reporter: contra costa county now has its first reported case of measles in three years. >> whenever there's a cause of
