The U.S. Department of Justice is ending its criminal investigation into Former House Majority Leader Tom Delay, R-Texas, with no charges.

The six year investigation looked into Delay's ties to former lobbyist Jack Abramoff who was convicted of fraud, corruption, and conspiracy.

Delay said he wished the investigation would not have taken as long as six years, but he also said he always knew it would end without any charges being filed.

Delay, who is a Christian, spoke to CBN News in April 2007 about his legal battle.

"I'm really not angry, my faith has sustained me. I struggle with loving your enemies, and I try my best to love my enemies and pray for my enemies, but I'm not angry," he said.

Delay served as Republican House Majority Leader from 2003 to 2005. He was forced to step down because of the criminal charges.
