Donald Trump Jr. is defending his father on Twitter after former FBI director James Comey questioned the president’s honesty.

Comey’s prepared testimony was released on the Senate Intelligence Committee’s website on Wednesday, confirming previous bombshell reports that Trump asked the FBI director to pledge loyalty to the president, as well as “let go” of the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s connections to Russia.

Comey’s testimony also confirmed that he took meticulous notes about his meetings with the president, and told Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he did not want to be left alone with Trump because he felt the conversations were inappropriate.

Trump Jr. blasted these allegations and defended his father, saying “knowing my father for 39 years when he ‘orders or tells’ you to do something there is no ambiguity, you will know exactly what he means.”
