    Trump FEMA Nominee Withdraws After NBC Questions on Falsified Records

    Remember when Trump claimed he was only going to hire the best people?

    Yeah, that was funny.

    Apparently, one of his hires had a bit of a rough time last time he was in government, mostly accused of falsifying some shit.

    Amazingly, he says it was a shoddy investigation and wrong, but he is withdrawing anyway.

    President Donald Trump's nominee for the No. 2 spot at the Federal Emergency Management Agency withdrew from consideration on Wednesday after NBC News raised questions about a federal investigation that found he had falsified government travel and timekeeping records when he served in the Bush administration in 2005.
    "Given the distraction this will cause the Agency in a time when they cannot afford to lose focus, I have withdrawn from my nomination," the former nominee, Daniel A. Craig, said in an email to NBC News.


    The investigation, jointly conducted by the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General, concluded there was insufficient evidence that Craig had violated conflict-of-interest laws in the awarding of huge FEMA contracts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, according to the 2011 report that has never been made public but which was reviewed by NBC News.

    You'll never find anyone who is both experienced and above reproach.

    But hell, inexperienced people are sometimes the best possible choice.

    Well, when the president vows to hire only the best, and he ends up with shit turds who are morally compromised, to put it mildly, I have to examine his claim for accuracy.

    He withdrew his nomination. Did you not read the OP? Are you not at least mildly aware of the thread topic?

    So claiming Trump only hires the best is a lie since he never hired this guy.
