Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman is a decorated combat veteran whose career in the armed services spanned over two decades. Republicans are now trying to paint Vindman as having dual loyalty to Ukraine, the country he emigrated to the United States from as a small child. During Vindman’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday, Republican Counsel Steve Castor asked Vindman about receiving an offer to serve as Ukraine’s defense minister. The implication was that Vindman may not have been working in the best interest of the United States while serving on the National Security Council. Vindman seemed amused, if not offended, by the counsel’s line of questioning. “I’m an American,” Vindman said. “I came here when I was a toddler. I immediately dismissed these offers.

But for me, the scene involving RJ Sulu exchanging sweet nothings on her late night show with a lusty caller who can't pick between his two lovers and another one which involves an elderly widower who misses his late wife stood out.

She wins every lemon-and-spoon race in her son's school and throws her dupatta over her back like a cape. Her … [Read more...] about Tumhari Sulu Movie Review: Vidya Balan Drops ‘Bijlee’ With Her Electrifying Performance!
