From Crux Now:
ROME – Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the former nuncio to the United States who called on Pope Francis to resign for allegedly lifting sanctions placed on Archbishop Theodore E. McCarrick, now says those “sanctions” were “private” and neither he nor now-retired Pope Benedict XVI was ever able to enforce them.
While Vigano went into hiding after publishing his “testimony” Aug. 25 about McCarrick – and about Francis and a host of other current and former Vatican officials – the former nuncio has continued to speak to the writers who originally helped him publish the document. Francis has not said anything since Aug. 26 when he told reporters traveling with him to study the document and do their own research. Even if the sanctions were private, Vigano claimed Francis was aware of them.
