Vice President Joe Biden denounces Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying his comments about women are ''a textbook definition of sexual assault.'' Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Vice President Joe Biden denounced Republican nominee Donald Trump at a rally in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday (October 29), calling him "unfit to be president". Biden said the comments Trump made on a 2005 recording released recently are "a textbook definition of sexual assault". Biden also said Trump "rooted for the housing crisis" in which many people lost their homes because it was "good business." Biden is campaigning for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as the contest enters its final days. Clinton has been leading in opinion polls, but is now facing new questions about her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. The FBI had closed the probe, but reopened it on Friday, announcing that new emails had come to light during another investigation. The FBI has been investigating illicit text messages allegedly sent from Anthony Weiner to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. Weiner is the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin and the Clinton emails were found on a device related to that investigation, the sources said. While the FBI probe of new emails will likely prove a distraction to Clinton in the coming days, it was unclear what impact it would have when Americans go to the polls. Election experts say about 20 percent of ballots have already been cast, as more Americans vote by mail or go to the polls early.
