UPDATE: 25 Sept:
It seems that Becciu was O’Brien-ed… he will not vote in an upcoming conclave, but he retains the honor of being a Cardinal.

Getting dropped from the Cardinalate is a big deal. The other shoe is still to drop, of course.
An appendage to the Bolletino – released at the unusual time of 8 PM ROME TIME! – says that
now-FORMER Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Becciu “resigned” both his role as Prefect of Saints and the Cardinalate
HOWEVER… my spies tell me – I still have them – that Francis called in Becciu and FIRED him. Becciu wasn’t even back to his apartment before the Bolletino came out.
The other shoes have yet to drop.
Some indictment, maybe extradition?
Meanwhile … Card. Pell is returning to Rome, to his old digs.
May I remind the readership that Becciu was a special enemy of the Cardinal Burke.
Also, Becciu was very much behind the persecution of Eugenio Hasler.
