Capitol Police will NOT charge Democrat’s aide who made viral gay sex tape in a Senate hearing room: Suspects ‘refused’ to speak with investigators despite there being ‘no evidence’ of a crime

US Capitol Police have announced they will not charge a Democratic congressional aide who was fired for filming a gay sex tape in the Senate because ‘no crime’ was committed.

Aidan Maese-Czeropski, 24, was fired by Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland in December, less than a day after a lewd video was uncovered showing two men having sex in a Senate hearing room.

He is facing possible criminal charges after his X-rated clip swept the internet.

Capitol Police investigated the explicit incident, which took place in the same room where the Supreme Court justice nominees are grilled by senators, but announced Thursday that it was closing the investigation.

“For now, we are closing the investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding a sex video that was recorded inside the Hart Senate Office Building on the morning of Wednesday, December 13,” Capitol Police wrote in a statement.

The investigation was closed because there was “no evidence that a crime was committed,” despite the fact that the law was “a violation of Congressional policy” because the aide had access to the committee room.

Maese-Czeropski and his partner in the video were “uncooperative,” Capitol Police continued.

He exercised his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and “refused” to speak to Capitol Police, the statement continued.

But investigators say they are ‘willing to review new evidence should any come to light’.

The aide, who appeared in a 2020 campaign video with Joe Biden, sparked backlash when he released his own statement on LinkedIn, claiming that he ‘attacked who I love for pursuing a political agenda.’

“While some of my actions in the past have shown poor judgment, I love my job and would never disrespect my workplace,” he said.

‘Any attempts to characterize my actions otherwise are fabricated and I will explore what legal options are available to me in these matters.’

Contacted by DailyMail.com on Saturday morning, shortly before his firing was confirmed, Maese-Czeropski’s mother, Magdalena Rivera Maese, implied her son was upset by what had happened, saying: ‘You don’t want to know how he’s doing. not.’

Lawyer Jonathan Turley previously said there were a number of laws that could potentially have been broken, including whether an unofficial use of the hearing room could be considered trespassing.

He added that the footage could land the staff member in legal hot water if it was shot in the public room to generate revenue, or if it could be an indecent, lewd or indecent act.

On Thursday, Turley wrote on X: ‘The US Capitol Police answered much-debated questions today: it turns out that shooting a porn scene in a Senate hearing room and posting it on the Internet is not a crime… ‘

Just days before the videos surfaced, Jewish Congressman Max Miller told the Washington Free Beacon Maese-Czeropski confronted him and shouted ‘Free Palestine’ in his face.

Maese-Czeropski said of those allegations: ‘Regarding the accusations regarding Congressman Max Miller, I have never seen the Congressman and had no opportunity or reason to yell or confront him.’

Footage of the fling, first uncovered by the Daily callershows a young male staff member bent over a conference room in the Hart Senate Office Building.

Another man stands behind him and films the sex act they perform in X-rated detail.

In a separate photo, the staffer is seen naked and on all fours on a table where senators often sit and ask questions during hearings.

The footage was allegedly shared in a private group for gay men in the political scene, and apparently appeared on a since-deleted account on X.

Its owner identifies himself as a ‘twink’ (young, smooth-bodied gay man) who engages in sexual acts with his older ‘bear’ partner.

According to his LinkedIn, Maese-Czeropski has worked in Cardin’s office since October 2021 and previously worked as a field organizer for the Virginia Democratic Party and as a climate researcher for the charity Friends of the Earth.

Cardin announced his retirement at the end of his current term in May, and his office has not commented on the allegations against his staffer. Maese-Czeropski did not immediately respond to attempts to contact him.

Congressman Mike Collins responded to the video on social media and slammed the alleged staffer’s actions.

“Happy of a week for the Left,” he wrote. ‘Gay pornography in the Senate, swearing in ceremony on child pornography in Virginia, the tap dancers in the White House and Satanic statues in Iowa. What else am I missing?’

The aide once appeared in a campaign video for President Biden in a “thank you” message days after he won the 2020 election, speaking briefly to Biden in the montage clip.

Maese-Czeropski allegedly sparked a separate incident just days before the explicit videos surfaced, as Ohio Republican Congressman Max Miller accused him of confronting him about his support for Israel.

Miller claimed to the Washington Free Beacon that Maese-Czeropski marched on him Wednesday outside a coffee shop in the Cannon House office building as he was mid-interview with Ali Vitali of NBC News.

Miller said the assistant was “visibly shaking” as he made a beeline for him, and felt the staff member was “very upset in my presence because he’s a snowflake.”

“And he just came back to me and was like ‘Free Palestine,'” Miller said.

“And I was like, ‘okay’… I’m not going to give him a reaction because that’s what he wants.”

Miller claimed that Vitali was stunned by the exchange and labeled it ‘blatant antisemitism’.

Vitali did not go as far in her own comments about the incident, say on X: “A House staffer just reached out to GOP Rep. Max Miller walked by—who is Jewish and supported sending aid to Israel—and said “liberate Palestine.”

‘Very rare and amazing to see staff challenging members to their faces like that.’

The aide denied the allegations in his statement to LinkedIn, claiming that he had “never seen the congressman and had no opportunity or reason to yell or confront him.”
