Originally posted 02/07/2015 04:20PM

Brian Williams is taking a break from his NBC Nightly News duties as the network investigates false claims he made about his time covering the War in Iraq.

"In the midst of a career spent covering and consuming news, it has become painfully apparent to me that I am presently too much a part of the news, due to my actions," he said in a note to NBC News staff Saturday.

"As Managing Editor of NBC Nightly News, I have decided to take myself off of my daily broadcast for the next several days, and Lester Holt has kindly agreed to sit in for me to allow us to adequately deal with this issue," he continued. "Upon my return, I will continue my career-long effort to be worthy of the trust of those who place their trust in us."

Brian Williams Facing Backlash over Comments Made About Iraq War Despite Apology

After making false claims about his time spent in Iraq in 2003, NBC News anchor Brian Williams has apologized, but the furor over his comments has yet to settle.

While some reports have claimed that fellow NBC anchor Tom Brokaw wants Williams fired, he has denied the claim. "I have neither demanded nor suggested Brian be fired," Brokaw said in a statement to The Huffington Post. "His future is up to Brian and NBC News executives."

Still, Williams, 55, is not safe from controversy.

The two pilots from Williams's helicopter, Christopher Simeone and Allan Kelly, told The New York Times that their chopper was safe from fire. "When he was on the air on the Letterman show, I was going crazy," said Simeone to the NYT in reference to Williams's 2013 appearance on the program in which he claimed he had indeed been on a helicopter that got shot down, and that an injured crew member had received a medal.
