Angel Mom, Trump Jr. Nail Senator Warren for Hurtful Remarks on Tibbetts

Mollie Tibbetts’ murder suspect was just arrested and the right is already politicizing her death

Her body was found in an Iowa cornfield on Tuesday.

In the case of Cristhian Bahena Rivera, the 24-year-old now charged with murder in the death of Mollie Tibbetts, Rivera's ex-employer said Wednesday he provided an out-of-state ID card and Social Security number.

Christhian Rivera, 24, was arrested and charged on Monday with the murder of 20-year-old Tibbetts, who disappeared in July while out jogging.

Christopher Peters, a Republican mounting a long-shot challenge to Iowa Democratic Congressman Dave Loebsack, said on Facebook that politicizing Tibbetts' murder "cheapens the death of this young woman".

At a rally in West Virginia on Tuesday night, Trump appeared to reference the case and the arrest of the "illegal alien" from Mexico.

"Sadly, the individual believed to be responsible for the murder is an illegal immigrant", Sanders said, "making this an unfortunate reminder of why we need to strengthen our broken immigration laws".

Amid the cheers, there were some protests in support of victims of clerical abuse at the hands of the Catholic Church. . This is normal procedure for when the Pope meets victims of clergy abuse during his trips outside Rome.

Rivera's defense attorney, Allan Richards, acknowledged Wednesday that his client received his paycheck under a different name and that Richards was uncertain of Rivera's immigration status.

Cristhian Bahena Rivera is escorted into the Poweshiek County Courthouse for his initial court appearance, Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018, in Montezuma, Iowa.

Although Trump claims legal USA residents are less likely to commit crime, several studies from social scientists and the libertarian think tank Cato Institute have concluded that isn't accurate and that states with a higher share of people living in the country illegally have lower violent crime rates. Richards specifically refers to the President's comments on the case in stating "Sad and Sorry Trump has weighed in on this matter in national media which will poison the entire possible pool of jury members".

"You saw what happened to that incredible, attractive woman (Mollie Tibbetts)", he said at a rally in West Virginia.

"For me, that hashtag is just a small way as a runner, a husband and a father of a 26-year-old daughter to express my support and heartfelt condolences to Mollie's family", he said.

Investigators said they zeroed in on Rivera after obtaining footage from surveillance cameras in Brooklyn.

Manafort's defense team asked for a full mistrial, but after interviewing each juror, the judge denied this request. However, according to Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, the president isn't now mulling a pardon for Manafort .

Law enforcement identified Rivera as the perpetrator of the homicide after watching home surveillance footage that showed a vehicle following Tibbetts as she jogged. We need Republicans to do it because Democrats aren't going to do it.

On a visit to Des Moines last week, Vice President Pence met with the Tibbetts family, telling them "you're on the hearts of every American".

That doesn't surprise folks at the Westside CAN Center, who say the vast majority of immigrants simply want to provide for their families.

Hundreds of people were interviewed by investigators in the Tibbetts investigation, and authorities were inundated with tips from the public during the five weeks that she was missing. But after confessing to her killing Monday, Rivera led police this week to her body in a field.

During Tuesday's news conference, law enforcement officials described Rivera as an "undocumented immigrant".

In a police affidavit, officers said Rivera told them he followed Tibbetts in his auto and then got out and ran behind and alongside of her.

"I woke up and I thought to myself this sucks, this sucks, I was not able to start school with one of my best friends", she said. Then, he dragged her into the corn and covered her body in the stalks, he told police.
