The U.S. Capitol police announced Thursday that they will not be bringing charges against the two men who recorded themselves having anal sex in the Hart Senate hearing room.

“For now, we are closing the investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding a sex video that was recorded inside the Hart Senate Office Building on the morning of Wednesday, December 13. 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,” U.S. Capitol Police said in a statement.

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

The Daily Caller first obtained leaked amateur pornography showing a congressional staffer having anal sex with an unknown man in the Senate hearing room. The alleged staffer can also be seen in a photo, naked on all fours, looking back at the camera on the table where senators often sit to ask questions during a hearing.

A source identified the room to the Daily Caller as Senate room Hart 216, the Judiciary Room.

The Daily Caller reviewed the chat where the video leaked and confirmed it was shared in a private group for gay men in politics.
