About the McCarrick scandal: if (a) there is no paper trail, or the paper trail is never made available for scrutiny, and (b) everyone sticks to their Sgt. Schultz “I know nnnnothink!” story, Wuerl et al. are invulnerable. It doesn’t matter how unliklely their story seems, indeed is. What matters, for them, is that they stick to it.
