The Catholic Bishops of the United States voted against releasing the church’s records on a disgraced Cardinal who stands accused of sexually abusing multiple priests during their time in seminary school.
“The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) voted today against asking the Vatican to release its records on former-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick,” LifeSite News said in a Wednesday report.
McCarrick was the former Archbishop of Washington D.C. He resigned in disgrace in July after two men were found to have “credibly accused” him of sexual abuse when they were minors. The resignation paved the way for Archbishop of Ulpiana Carlo Viganò to release an affidavit claiming that Pope Francis knew of McCarrick’s long history of alleged abuse and did nothing. The Catholic Church has been embroiled in the scandal ever since, with more than 10 state attorneys general ordering all dioceses in their states to turn over records of sexual abuse going back decades.
“In what was eventually an 83 to 137 vote, the USCCB decided against asking the Vatican for its documentation on the disgraced prelate,” the report said. “The discussion that ensued revealed equal parts fear among the members of the USCCB: fear of anger by laity and priests back in their home dioceses; fear that if they don’t write something they might appear to be passive and uncaring pastors; and fear of offending or being misunderstood by the Holy See.”
The Bishops did not leave the meeting without pretending to make a serious request of the Vatican, will never be fulfilled.
“Recognizing the ongoing investigation of the Holy See into the case of Archbishop McCarrick, be it resolved that the bishops of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops encourage the Holy See to release all the documentation that can be released consistent with canon and civil law regarding the misconduct of Archbishop McCarrick,” they said.
According to the report, some Bishops even laughed off the request.
“Bishop Michael Fors Olson of the Diocese of Fort Worth,Texas said he found the entire motion to be ‘subjective and vague.’ He suggested that it will serve to make the USCCB ‘appear like we are doing something when we are not,” the report said.
Ghislaine Maxwell Expected to Be Housed in Same Prison Where Jeffrey Epstein Died Mysteriously
Jeffrey Epstein confidant Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested by the FBI yesterday, in news widely celebrated by supporters of transparency and justice, but she may never get an opportunity to tell secrets about all of the powerful individuals serviced by Epstein’s illicit network.
Reports indicate Maxwell is likely to be housed in the Metropolitan Correctional Center (MCC) in New York City, the same facility that housed Epstein during his death. Epstein’s death was ruled by official authorities as a suicide despite his broken neck while guards were absent and nearby surveillance videos were destroyed.
Maxwell’s case is being moved to the Southern District of New York, which is the jurisdiction where she is being charged. She is expected to be transported to New York on Friday, where she will be either housed at the MCC or the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn.
Acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss was asked during a recent press conference about what authorities are planning to do to ensure Maxwell’s safety.
“As you know, we are sensitive to that concern and certainly we’ll be in dialogue with the Bureau of Prisons about it,” Strauss said to deflect the question.
Maxwell faces charges of conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, conspiracy to entice minors to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, enticement of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and two counts of perjury.
Big League Politics reported earlier this week on how the courts are ordering the destruction of documents detailing Maxwell’s alleged role in Epstein’s pedophile network:
A federal judge has ordered the attorneys of Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre to destroy documents related to Ghislaine Maxwell, an Epstein confidant who has been frequently named as his former collaborator in child sex trafficking.
Senior U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska made the determination in lawsuits Giuffre and her attorneys, Cooper and Kirk, have filed against Maxwell and former Epstein attorney Alan Dershowitz. Preska rejected Dershowitz’s attempt to change a protective order to receive documents for his defense in the defamation case while ordering Giuffre’s attorneys to destroy documents from a previously-settled case involving Maxwell.
Preska wrote in her decision that “discovery materials designated CONFIDENTAL cannot be disclosed or used outside of the confines of the Maxwell action” and “that properly designated discovery materials may only be disclosed to specific groups of individuals, including attorneys ‘actively working on’ the Maxwell litigation.” Preska believes that Giuffre’s new attorneys do not meet this standard.
“As a practical matter, the Court would be surprised – shocked, even – if Cooper & Kirk was not in some sense “using” the Maxwell discovery in its representation of Ms. Giuffre in her action against Mr. Dershowitz,” Preska speculated. “And, even if it was not doing so, Cooper & Kirk is not ‘actively working on’ the Maxwell matter such that disclosure of discovery materials to it would be permissible under the plain terms of the protective order.”
Because of her assumptions, Preska is ordering all of the Maxwell documents, with the exception of Giuffre’s testimony in the case, to be destroyed effective immediately.
The deep state may be getting ready to remove another loose end in Maxwell before she can release sensitive information exposing influential globalist predators.
