Disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick blamed conservatives in an interview with Slate for the dozens of “credible” accusations of sexual assault he has been accused of.
The 89-year-old defrocked McCarrick, who once socialized with popes, presidents and world leaders, currently resides in a small friary in Victoria, Kansas. He has not spoken publicly for over a year, according to Slate. “I’m not as bad as they paint me,” McCarrick said in an interview with Slate’s Ruth Graham published Tuesday. “I do not believe that I did the things that they accused me of.”
