Cardinal Angelo Becciu, the focus of the most dramatic accusations, responded by quoting from what he said were private email exchanges between himself and Pope Francis, to undermine the claims of his accusers.
The Pillar coverage captures the drama, the absurdity, and the confusion of the latest action before the Vatican tribunal—as well as the accounts of a series of complicated financial transactions that lie at the heart of the matter.
