Video: Former church official disputes archbishop's clergy abuse testimony
The Rev. Kevin McDonough answered questions about his involvement in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis' handling of clergy sexual abuse during an April 16, 2014, deposition. The questioning comes as part of a lawsuit brought by a man who says he was sexually abused by the Rev. Thomas Adamson in the 1970s. Video courtesy of Jeff Anderson and Associates
In a deposition earlier this month, a longtime official for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis disputed Archbishop John Nienstedt's sworn testimony on the clergy abuse scandal.
Nienstedt had testified April 2 that the Rev. Kevin McDonough told him not to write down sensitive information about abusive priests because the information could become public in a lawsuit. Nienstedt also said McDonough provided vague information on past cases and led him to believe that the archdiocese was safe for children.
