FBI investigators seize six additional classified documents during a 13-hour search of the President’s family home in Delaware.

Top Democrats have criticised Joe Biden after a fourth tranche of classified documents was found at his home, saying the US president should be “embarrassed by the situation”.

FBI investigators seized six additional classified documents during a 13-hour search of Mr Biden’s family home in Wilmington, Delaware.

The announcement of a fourth discovery of classified files in less than a fortnight heaped further embarrassment on Mr Biden.

Investigators were invited into the president’s home and did not require a search warrant in contrast to the search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago property.

Illinois senator, Dick Durbin, the second-ranking Democrat in the Senate said the situation was embarrassing for the president and deprived him of the moral high ground over Mr Trump.

‘It’s not supposed to happen’

“Let’s be honest about it. When the information is found, it diminishes the stature of any person who is in possession of it because it’s not supposed to happen. … The elected official bears ultimate responsibility,” Mr Durbin said.

Mr Biden has been under pressure since announcing “a small number” of classified documents had been found by his lawyers at the Penn Biden Centre in Washington shortly before the midterm elections.
