"Secret archives" on clergy abuse were shared with Vatican, Pennsylvania AG says

A law under consideration in Pennsylvania could give victims of child sexual abuse a second chance at justice. A groundbreaking Pennsylvania grand jury report this month revealed the Catholic Church's cover-up of decades of sexual abuse by 301 priests. In a statement to CBS News, the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference said: "We are devastated and outraged by the revelations of terrible sexual abuse crimes committed in the Catholic Church.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro who led the investigation joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why he sees the "sophisticated cover-up" going up to the Vatican.
