The US justice department will not pursue criminal charges against former Vice-President Mike Pence over his handling of classified documents.
Ednews informs via CNN that an investigation has now cleared Mr Pence of any wrongdoing, according to US media reports.
The news comes just days before he is expected to announce his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.
In January, his lawyers said a "small number" of classified documents were found at his Indiana home.
From the outset of the investigation, Mr Pence's team said that the documents had been "inadvertently" stored in boxes that were not in a secure area at his Carmel, Indiana property.
