A long-awaited Vatican article on a disgraced ex-U.S. VATICAN CITY — Reuters.

The release of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick is scheduled on Thursday to align with the annual conference of American bishops.

After he had been accused by a Vatican investigation last year of lewd offences against children and adults and misuse of authority, McCarrick was evicted from the Roman Catholic sacerdoce.

The Holy See offices Pope Francis in 2018 directed a systematic review of all records related to McCarrick.

The annual conference of the Catholic Bishops is set for 15-19 November.

This year, the coronavirus is carried virtually.

The sources stated that before the bishops' meeting started, the study will be published by the Vatican.

The study is widely awaited because it could reveal how McCarrick was able to climb the ranks when he has an open hidden background of sexual harassment of adult male seminarians.
