In Charting New McCarrick Probe, Vatican Concedes Likely Cover-Up

. . .with the announcement, the Vatican’s first formal comment on the McCarrick case since the 88 year-old’s resignation from the College, the coming probe will be the 2nd broad internal investigation born from the current storm.  Notably, given the prior sense among no shortage of Americans that Rome was reluctant to engage a review of its archives in light of the possibility that successive Popes would be implicated in enabling McCarrick’s rise, today’s move represents a head-on tackling of that criticism. . .
