Vatileaks report available to pope, but likely not read yet

"I would be very surprised if he has dedicated time to reading it these last few days," Lombardi said at a press conference.
Francis' predecessor Benedict XVI commissioned three elder cardinals to compile a report on the so-called Vatileaks scandal, which saw the pope's ex-butler convicted of stealing and leaking confidential Vatican papers last year.
The result, a 300-page, two-volume dossier, was presented to Benedict last fall.
