Elizabeth Warren finds herself in a delicate position. Right as her popularity in the Democratic presidential contest is rising, the race has taken a dramatic turn, with her main rival for the nomination under attack by the president.
She has been left with a choice: forcefully defend former Vice President Joe Biden against President Donald Trump’s debunked accusations of misconduct in Ukraine by his son Hunter or risk looking like she’s taking advantage of Trump’s attack on her top opponent to boost her own presidential campaign.
Warren, so far, has kept her attention primarily on the need for impeaching the president, which she has championed for five months and which House Democrats are now embracing in droves. And Democratic operatives caution that she should continue spending her time focusing on the Trump and not her primary rival.
