Allison Williams Sticks Up for Her Dad: "I Know You Can Trust Him"

"I can't wait until he's back on TV, and I know many of you guys feel that way."

Amidst the scandal surrounding her father Brian Williams, Allison Williams has stepped out as the first member of the anchor's family to discuss his six-month suspension from NBC Nightly News for misrepresenting events that occurred while he covered the Iraq War in 2003.

"He's a really good man," Williams said. "He's an honest man. He's a truthful man. He has so much integrity. He cares so much about journalism. And yes, he's a really good dad, but I know you can trust him because, as any good daughter does, I have tested him on that."

She then launched into an anecdote that, coincidentally, also had to do with the Iraq War in 2003. Watch a clip from the interview below.
