So There Is A Report

And it somehow relates to leaks and the personnel associated with the Holy See. Per Rorate:

At the conclusion of their mission, the Holy Father thanked them for the helpful work they did, and expressed satisfaction for the results of the investigation. Their work made it possible to detect, given the limitations and imperfections of the human factor of every institution, the generosity and dedication of those who work with uprightness and generosity in the Holy See at the service of the mission entrusted by Christ to the Roman Pontiff.

Most significantly:

The Holy Father has decided that the acts of this investigation, known only to himself, remain solely at the disposition of the new pope.

So it seems there will be no circulation of the report among the electors. To me, this suggests that the Pope is very confident that there will be no shenanigans leading up to or during the conclave. That is a big gamble, I think. And afterwards? Are the wolves just going to sit around and wait to see if they are implicated?

We shall see.
