WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will not face charges in connection the 2017 publication of information relating to the CIA’s hacking capabilities, according to Politico.

Federal prosecutors would face an uphill struggle in prosecuting Assange for publishing the documents, dubbed “Vault 7,” in part because extradition law requires them to charge Assange within 60 days of his first indictment, which they filed in March when they accused him of helping whistleblower Chelsea Manning access military computers, according to the publication.

Assange is being held in London at the request of U.S. authorities, following his eviction from the Ecuadorian Embassy where he had sought refuge for several years.
