Former Vice President Joe Biden joined his fellow Democrats Wednesday in their latest push to impeach President Trump; saying he has “committed impeachable acts” without specifying any wrongdoing.
“Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and committed impeachable acts. To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached,” said Biden at a campaign event in New Hampshire.

Biden’s status as the Democratic frontrunner was thrown into question this week, with new polls showing Sen. Elizabeth Warren overtaking the former Vice President in several national polls.
Elizabeth Warren has taken a narrow lead over Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, the October IBD/TIPP Poll found. Both candidates continue to lead in a head-to-head matchup against President Trump, though Biden had a more comfortable lead, outside the margin of error,” reports the survey.
“Elizabeth Warren had the support of 27%, with Joe Biden backed by 26% and Bernie Sanders a distant third at 10%. Support for South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg climbed to 7% from 5%. No other candidate polled more than 3%,” adds the report.
The poll comes days after Warren’s campaign “blew past” Biden in 3rd quarter fundraising; a major indicator of voter enthusiasm heading into the primary season.
“The figure affirms the momentum Warren has appeared to be gaining in recent weeks and months, as polls show her now battling Biden – once the unrivaled front-runner – for the primary lead,” reports Fox News.
“I’m grateful down to my toes for every grassroots supporter who chipped in to help raise $24.6 million in the third fundraising quarter. Together, we’re building a movement that’s going to put power back in the hands of the people,” posted Warren on social media.

“I am currently at the United Nations representing our Country, but have authorized the release tomorrow of the complete, fully declassified and unredacted transcript of my phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine,” posted Trump on Twitter. “You will see it was a very friendly and totally appropriate call. No pressure and, unlike Joe Biden and his son, NO quid pro quo! This is nothing more than a continuation of the Greatest and most Destructive Witch Hunt of all time!”

“The decision sets up an election season clash between Trump and Congress that seems certain to exacerbate the nation’s fierce partisan divides and inject deep uncertainty into the 2020 presidential contest.

BACKING OFF? After Demanding Impeachment, Hillary Warns Dems Not to ‘Jump to Conclusions’
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton seemingly backed-off her latest calls for impeachment Tuesday; warning fellow Democrats to not “jump to any conclusions” on the Ukraine.
I think the evidence concerning Ukraine is so dramatic and irrefutable because it came right out of the White House. So let the impeachment inquiry proceed,” Clinton told ABC News. “I know that they will do a thoughtful, thorough job. Nobody should jump to any conclusions.”

“From everything we know and we don’t know much, this is an experienced person who saw things that bothered him. That’s what the whole whistle-blower statute is for. And it is to protect their identity. And I understand he’s going to testify and we’ll let the process unfold,” she added.
Clinton’s comments are a stark contrast to statement she made earlier this week, writing “The president of the United States has betrayed our country. That’s not a political statement—it’s a harsh reality, and we must act. He is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free. I support impeachment.”
