Pope’s men working to cover his tracks in re: McCarrick

Seeking, we presume, to swear and “prove” that while half the ecclesiastical world knew about the ex-cardinal’s malfeasance, he, Francis knew nothing.

Apparently the Vatican is realizing that the silent gambit was not working, or rather was working against them:

Pope Francis’ top advisers say the Vatican is preparing the “necessary clarifications” about accusations that the pope covered up the sexual misconduct of a now-disgraced American cardinal.

Francis’ nine cardinal advisers expressed their “full solidarity” Monday with the pope over the scandal, which has thrown his papacy into crisis.

If he knew nothing, why not? Which so-called advisors left him in the dark? Which heads are to roll among his men?
