WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A routine hearing before the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs on Wednesday turned into an apology tour for the Trump administration as a slate of officials were forced to explain why they turned in their testimony late.

Of the four witnesses sent by the Trump team to testify about community development in Indian Country on Wednesday afternoon, three failed to abide by the committee's rule for submitting their written statements 48 hours in advance. All had varying explanations for their lateness and all said they were really, really sorry.
