The U.S. Capitol Police have decided not to press charges after a sex video was recorded inside the Hart Senate Office Building.

Despite a likely violation of Congressional policy, no evidence of a crime was found.

The staffer involved resigned and refused to cooperate.

“After consulting with federal and local prosecutors, as well as doing a comprehensive investigation and review of possible charges, it was determined that — despite a likely violation of Congressional policy — there is currently no evidence that a crime was committed,” the agency stated.

The video was leaked in a private group for gay men in politics, leading to the firing of a staff member for Sen. Ben Cardin.

“Although the hearing room was not open to the public at the time, the Congressional staffer involved had access to the room. The two people of interest were not cooperative, nor were the elements of any of the possible crimes met,” Capitol Police said.

“The Congressional staffer, who has since resigned from his job, exercised his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and refused to talk to us,” they said. “Our investigators are willing to review new evidence should any come to light.”

The incident was described as a breach of trust, as the room where the video was filmed holds historical significance.

“I was angry. I was disappointed,” Sen. Ben Cardin said. “It’s a breach of trust.”
