Vatican reviewing McCarrick case, vows to pursue truth no matter what

A Vatican statement said Francis had accepted Wuerl's resignation, but named no immediate replacement.
Ouellet said there was no evidence of a cover up.
Cardinal DiNardo also met with Pope Francis and other Vatican offices October 8, ahead of the US bishops' fall general assembly next month.
Pope Francis greets Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, before a private audience September 13 at the Vatican.
Wuerl, who has been the archbishop of Washington since 2006, presented his resignation to the pope when he turned 75 three years ago, as is customary for cardinals.
Archbishop Vigano had claimed he personally informed Pope Francis in June 2013 that in "2009 or 2010", after Cardinal McCarrick had retired, Pope Benedict imposed sanctions on him because of allegations of sexual misconduct with and sexual harassment of seminarians.
"In the meantime, names of potential leaders for the archdiocese will be submitted to the pope through the apostolic nuncio for Pope Francis to determine the next suitable archbishop".
The McCarrick scandal has thrown the US and Vatican hierarchy into turmoil, given that it was apparently an open secret in some USA church circles that he would invite seminarians into his bed.
He accused Francis of knowing about sexual misconduct by a former USA cardinal with male adult seminarians but not doing anything about it. Another man also claimed that McCarrick had molested him when the man was a teenager.
Canadian cardinal Marc Ouellett said Vigano's "unjustified attack" was a "political manoeuver without any real foundation" that aimed "to incriminate the pope".
Francis had nothing to do with the promotion of McCarrick to New York, Metuchen, Newark or Washington.
Cardinal Ouellet did acknowledge that McCarrick had been "strongly exhorted" not to travel or appear in public, and to live a discreet life of prayer given rumours against him about his past behaviour with young adult men. "The reason is that back then, unlike today, there was not sufficient proof of his alleged culpability".
Archbishop Vigano implied that Francis still rehabilitated McCarrick from the "canonical sanctions" and made him a trusted counsellor. He was often the glue holding a divided bishops' conference in America together, and he was also the most important interpreter and ally of Pope Francis in a sometimes-skeptical Catholic culture in the US.
"Imagine the enormous quantity of verbal and written information he received that day regarding many people and situations", the cardinal wrote. "Of this, I am proud and thank you", the pope wrote.
After the meeting with the pope, neither the bishops nor the Vatican mentioned an investigation. But Ouellet said he couldn't believe Vigano had arrived at such a "monstrous" and "blasphemous" conclusion, given that Francis had nothing to do with McCarrick's career rise. "Did you ever move priests quietly?"
And he urged Vigano: "Come out of your hiding place, repent for your revolt and return to better sentiments toward the Holy Father".
