​”​Given the distraction this will cause the Agency in a time when they cannot afford to lose focus, I have withdrawn from my nomination,” Daniel A. Craig, ​told ​NBC News​ in an email.

​The investigation by the FBI and Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General concluded there was insufficient evidence that Craig had broken the law when he awarded FEMA contracts after Katrina in 2005, the network said, citing a review of a 2011 report on the probe.

Craig, who was never charged and has maintained his innocence, told NBC some information in the report was wrong and was the result of “poor” investigating.

He also said he made the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, which had been conducting the hearing into his nomination, aware of the investigation.

President Trump nominated Craig, who had been FEMA’s director of recovery in the Bush administration from 2003 to 2005, to the post in July.

The report on the investigation said as he was doling out $100 million contracts to private companies to provide temporary housing for Katrina victims he was also seeking employment with the firms.
