Archbishop Carlo Vigano, the former Apostolic Nuncio to the US, alleged in an explosive 11-page testimony that Wuerl knew about the sex abuse of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and that he covered up for him. Vigano says Wuerl “lies shamelessly” and that he knew McCarrick was sanctioned by Pope Benedict. Wuerl allowed McCarrick to live in a Washington D.C. seminary as well, thus endangering seminarians.
