The Attorney General for the District of Columbia launched an investigation into the Archdioceses of Washington to find out whether the church covered up cases of sexual abuse of minors.
“While we generally don’t talk publicly about our confidential enforcement activity, I can report that our office has launched a civil investigation into whether the Archdiocese — which is a nonprofit institution — violated the District’s Nonprofit Act by potentially covering up allegations of sexual abuse of minors,” Attorney General Karl Racine said.
The attorney general’s office also set up an online portal for victims of clergy abuse to report their cases. In addition the US Attorney for the District of Columbia, which handles criminal sexual abuse complaints, set up a hotline for abuse survivors.
The announcement comes on the heels of last week’s resignation of Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the former Archbishop of Washington. Big League Politics reported:
Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of the Archbishop of Washington, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the Vatican announced Friday.
“Once again for any past errors in judgment, I apologize and ask for pardon. My resignation is one way to express my great and abiding love for you the people of the church of Washington,” Wuerl said in a statement.
Wuerl has been accused of covering up sexual abuse to protect clergy members and reassigning accused priests to new posts without punishment, effectively letting them off the hook for their alleged abuse. The 77-year-old Cardinal was at the center of a Pennsylvania grand jury’s findings that priests had abused more than 300 minors over a 70 year period. Wuerl was the bishop of Pittsburgh from 1988 to 2006 during the height of the sexual abuse. He then took over the archdiocese of Washington, where he denied knowing that his predecessor, disgraced Cardinal and former Archbishop Theodore McCarrick was suspected of abusing young men in the seminary.
More than 10 states are actively investigating all of their Catholic Dioceses for sex crimes and potential coverups.
President Trump Hopes Ghislaine Maxwell Stays ‘Well’ Behind Bars, Avoids Jeffrey Epstein’s Fate
Trump knows what’s going on.
President Donald Trump doubled down on his controversial sentiments to Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged accomplice of dead pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Maxwell has been in the news following her apprehension for her purported role in Epstein’s child sex trafficking operation. Trump said that he wished her well, and made it clear that he does not want her to end up like Epstein.
“Her friend, or boyfriend, was either killed or committed suicide in jail. She’s now in jail,” Trump said to Axios’ Jonathan Swan in an interview airing on HBO last night.
“Yeah, I wish her well,” he said. “I’d wish you well. I’d wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove somebody was guilty.”
Trump had received criticism after wishing her well previously, after he was questioned about Maxwell’s apprehension at a recent coronavirus press conference.
“I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach, and I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is,” Trump said at the press conference.
Trump made it clear with his comments that he hopes Maxwell stays alive throughout the court process. It has been widely speculated that Maxwell could end up dying mysteriously like her former right-hand man did behind bars.
“I do wish her well. I’m not looking for anything bad for her. I’m not looking bad for anybody,” Trump said.
“But I do know that her friend or boyfriend [Epstein] was either killed or committed suicide in jail,” the president added.
Big League Politics has reported on Maxwell’s reported fears that she will be targeted in jail before she can cut a deal regarding the treasure trove of alleged blackmail material compiled through Epstein’s ‘Pedo Island’ operation:
Jeffrey Epstein’s former ‘madame’ Ghislane Maxwell believes the pedophile billionaire, who was her ex-lover, was murdered in a Manhattan jail, and fears the same fate in pretrial detention at a jail in Brooklyn.
“Everyone’s view including Ghislaine’s, is Epstein was murdered. She received death threats before she was arrested,” reported the Sun on Sunday, quoting an unnamed purported Maxwell contact. Maxwell had reportedly contracted the services of veterans of the British Armed Forces, fearing potentially assassination attempts following the death of Epstein and a deluge of death threats communicated to her.
The Maxwell contact, who remained in contact with her throughout her time in hiding in New Hampshire, states that she believes Maxwell fears dying suspiciously in a manner similar to Epstein while in the Brooklyn jail.
Maxwell was arrested at a secretive New Hampshire getaway last month by FBI agents, in regards to an investigation probing her involvement in the deceased pedophile billionaire’s underage sex trafficking network. The Department of Justice is accusing Maxwell of procuring, transporting and in turn personally abusing underage girls for Epstein and an elite network of the New York financier’s political and financial contacts to abuse.
Maxwell broke down in tears last week when a federal judge denied her bail, citing the heiress’ collection of properties around the world and her “extraordinary capacity to evade detection.”
President Trump is hoping that Maxwell’s health does not take a turn for the worst so justice can be served, and the elites serviced by Epstein’s child sex network can face repercussions for their unspeakable behavior.
