That’s more of an apology than we got from a lying Attorney General or a corrupt IRS.

This usage of “spiel” is from Yiddish, I think. The word is originally German for “game” but transformed its meaning during the development of the Yiddish language (which branched off from German in the 10th century and was influenced by Hebrew, Aramaic and Slavic languages). That’s how I understand it, anyway …
