Archbishop Vignanò Defends Himself

Edit: is it any wonder that creatures like Mark Shea have attacked Vignanò, who was himself no traditionalist. His loyalties to Benedict were certainly in question, since he fueled the fires of speculation on the Vatileaks which led to the Pope’s administrative neutering and eventual resignation.

Vox makes some remarks, and one of Vignanò’s colleagues defends him as a man of inestimable character and talent, who tried to root out these evils as the supervisor of all Nuncios in the Office of the Governorate  prior to being demoted to the USA.

Bishop Olmsted also defends him, saying those who cover for predators like Archbishop McCarrick, should be dealt with.

ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - A former papal nuncio is defending himself in the face of accusations impugning his integrity.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former apostolic nuncio to the United States, who published explosive testimony Sunday alleging Pope Francis covered for homosexual predator Abp. Theodore McCarrick, issued a two-page statement Monday responding to charges that he thwarted a sex abuse investigation in 2015.
"These accusations — alleging that I ordered the two Auxiliary Bishops of Minneapolis to close the investigation into the life of Archbishop John C. Nienstedt — are false," he wrote.
