Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, a former nuncio or ambassador for the pope,  is calling for Pope Francis to resign, claiming that the pontiff knew about abuse perpetrated by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who recently resigned amid accusations that he engaged in sex with adult seminarians as well as sexually abusing minors.  Pope Francis repealed the sanctions that were imposed on McCarrick by prior Pope Benedict who ordered McCarrick out of the public ministry.  Pope Francis revoked the sanctions and made McCarrick his trusted counselor.

This follows on the heels of a grand jury report in Pennsylvania that detailed alleged sexual abuse of more than 1,000 children by about 300 priests in six dioceses over a 70-year period.
