ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Vice President Joe Biden spoke at a rally in Sumter, South Carolina on Tuesday (November 1) and said "Donald Trump is the definition of the abuse of power." "Donald Trump says ya, he rooted for the housing crisis because that was 'good business.' Millions of people got hurt, lost everything, lost everything they had but he thought that was good business," said Biden. The vice president also mentioned Trump not paying his taxes and multiple women accusing Trump of sexual abuse. A top aide to Hillary Clinton on Tuesday urged the FBI to disclose what it knows about any ties between Republican Donald Trump and Russia, accusing the law enforcement agency of unfairly publicizing its inquiry into Clinton's email practices while staying quiet about Trump. A week before Election Day, the Clinton campaign has been trying to contain damage from FBI Director James Comey's announcement on Friday of new emails that might pertain to Clinton's use of a private server while secretary of state. Trump seized on the revelation to intensify his criticism of a rival he has long dubbed "Crooked Hillary" and welcomed a slight improvement for him in a new ABC/Washington Post poll on Tuesday. Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook questioned why the Federal Bureau of Investigation's director had not released any information about its investigation into Russia's role in the U.S. election or ties to Trump and his senior aides.
