An overzealous former prosecutor may have hopped state lines to bring him in after a hacker posted an old video of him smoking a bong out of a gas mask to his Twitter account.New Jersey Governor and former presidential candidate Chris Christie joined WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Friday morning to discuss the draft, and spent a lot of time expressing his bemusement about the Tunsil situation. At one point, the former New Jersey Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer said that if he were still a prosecutor, he would have “gone in and cuffed” the Ole Miss offensive tackle. Buzzfeed’s Christopher Massie transcribed some of the more interesting parts of the appearance:“It’s unbelievable,” Christie said. “Because the bong hits aren’t enough. Give me the gas mask too. It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”Earlier in the interview, Christie, who opposes marijuana legalization, said, “When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” adding, “I would’ve been all over it.”Christie also expressed sympathy towards Tunsil, saying, “Poor kid in that respect. I mean, he did it. But who’s the guy that hates him enough that they had access to the video and put it on. I mean, wow.”Here is the full interview: [Buzzfeed]last_img read more

The OBC was earlier a Prompt Corrective Action (PCA) bank under the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) with lending, management compensation and directors’ fees and branch expansion restrictions. But in February this year, it was out of the PCA. The respective boards of the three banks have given in-principle approval for the amalgamation. The UBI’s Board of Directors has approved in-principle a plan to raise upto Rs 3,000 crore via a preferential sales of shares. The UBI, currently under PCA, will come out of the framework because of bank merger. On September 19, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman met the heads of the public sector banks where the issue on the preparation of merging banks to meet the April 2020 deadline was discussed, along with credit offtake in retail, and home and personal loans. The government last month announced the merger of 10 public sector banks into four strong lenders with countrywide networks and global reach to boost credit and revive economic growth in the nation’s bid to become a $5 trillion economy in the next five years. After this, the total number of public sector banks will come down from 24 to 12.last_img read more
