A government watchdog found "no evidence" that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo violated a federal law governing political activities with trips he took to Kansas last year.
The disclosure was made on Thursday by Pompeo when he sent a letter to Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, that included a copy of the Office of Special Counsel's (OSC) report, and then also sent a copy of the letters to a group of reporters.
"OSC has no evidence to conclude that you violated the Hatch Act. Therefore, we are closing this matter without further action," the office wrote in a letter sent to Pompeo dated January 21 but released on Thursday.
The OSC, as part of its determination, noted reports that Pompeo had recently told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that he did not plan to run for Senate in Kansas, where Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) is retiring at the end of the year.
