Capitol Police close investigation into Senate sex tape without charges

The U.S. Capitol Police announced on Thursday that they have closed their investigation into a sex tape filmed in a Capitol Hill hearing room, stating that there is currently no evidence of a crime being committed. The incident, which occurred on December 13, involved two men having sex on the dais of a hearing room in the Hart Senate Office Building. One of the men was identified as a former staffer for Senator Ben Cardin, who has since resigned from his job. The Capitol Police stated that the hearing room was not open to the public at the time and the former staffer had access to the room. However, he refused to cooperate with the investigation and exercised his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent. The agency also stated that the elements of any possible crimes were not met. In response to the incident, Senator Cardin expressed his anger and disappointment, calling it a breach of trust. The Capitol Police have stated that they are willing to review new evidence if it comes to light.
