In a phone call, Patrick O’Carroll, Junior referred to his agency’s actions as “sloppiness.” It initially told Luetkemeyer and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that one of the discs with that list on it was accessible, before reversing itself on Monday and saying it could use neither disc.

O’Carroll agreed to meet in-person with Luetkemeyer Thursday¬†morning.

Luetkemeyer issued a statement yesterday saying he was “furious” about the release of false information by the Administration.
