Probe into Pence handling of classified docs closed

The United States Justice Department halted the investigation into possible mishandling of classified documents found at the home of former United States Vice President Mike Pence, according to a report published by CNN on Friday.

"The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department's National Security Division have conducted an investigation into the potential mishandling of classified information. Based on the results of that investigation, no criminal charges will be sought," CNN cited a letter sent to Pence's attorney.

The investigation was suspended a week ahead of Pence's expected launch of a presidential campaign that will reportedly take place on June 7.
