Ex-FBI agents to help investigate cardinals on abuse and corruption

A new watchdog, Better Church Governance, plans to produce a dossier on all the cardinal electors

US lay people are launching a new initiative to assess cardinals’ records on combatting abuse and corruption.

Better Church Governance has signed up former FBI agents as investigators, led by Phil Scala, a former FBI Supervisory Special Agent, and James Murphy, a former FBI Assistant Agent in charge.



I assume this is just some group on their own taking some initiative? If that is the case they’ll probably be limited to anything that is publicly available. I doubt many, if any, dioceses would voluntarily give any information to some lay group, no matter how good their intentions are.
