Former Vice President Mike Pence will not be charged in the Justice Department’s investigation into his alleged improper retention of classified records from his time in the Trump administration, Fox News has learned.

Multiple sources told Fox News that the Justice Department has closed the investigation into Pence’s possession of classified documents at his residence in Indiana.

The Justice Department sent a letter to Pence attorneys this week, saying that the FBI and Justice Department have completed the investigation, and said no criminal charges will be brought against the former vice president.

Pence informed Congress and the National Archives in January that he discovered documents with classified markings in his Carmel, Indiana, home on Jan. 16 from his time as vice president.

Pence told the National Archives on Jan. 18 of a small number of potentially classified documents found in two boxes. Another two boxes contained copies of vice presidential papers, and all of them were immediately put into a safe, according to the Pence team.

Pence is expected to announce his 2024 presidential campaign next week.
