Doe first spoke out late last year in an essay published online.
In the original Oct. 2019 essay, he said that in addition to widely reported seminary-related allegations against the former Cardinal, McCarrick had also abused a group of at least seven boys under the age of 16 as a priest of the Archdiocese of New York.
"Collectively, we were able to provide law enforcement with names, dates, times, locations, who was present, supporting evidence, and related documentation covering hundreds of Church-related or fundraising-related overnight trips between the years 1970 and 1990 that, as fate would have it, all resulted in McCarrick sharing a bed with a young Catholic boy."
A source with knowledge of the Vatican investigation into McCarrick told CNA last year that the former cardinal is alleged to have regularly invited high school boys to accompany him on trips between 1971-1977, when he served as secretary to Cardinal Terrence Cooke, then-Archbishop of New York.
During that same period, McCarrick already had a well-established reputation among seminarians as a predator, CNA's reporting has found.
Some senior Church officials have told CNA that McCarrick was under consideration for an influential Vatican post in 1999; concerns about the former cardinal's lifestyle are rumored to have played a role in scuttling that plan. McCarrick was nevertheless appointed Washington's archbishop in 2000, where he continued to serve until his retirement in 2006.
The legal situation in some of McCarrick's former dioceses suggests that some bishops might have reasons to consider asking the Vatican, privately, that the release of the McCarrick report be postponed.
New York is in the midst of a "window" that allows lawsuits related to sexual abuse that fall beyond the normal statute of limitations, which is set to close in August 2020.
New Jersey is also in a statute of limitations window, set to end in 2021. McCarrick served as a bishop in both New York and New Jersey, during the period in which he committed acts of sexual abuse and coercion.
