How To Take Down A Gangster: Fight "The Chicago Way"

If we want to take down a mobster like Donald Trump, our elected leaders need to take a lesson from 'The Untouchables' and learn to fight "The Chicago Way."

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence will stop in-person congressional intelligence committee briefings on foreign interference with the 2020 elections. It is the most crucial election in our history, and DNI Ratcliffe is cutting back on communication with our congress's key members.

When they received the news about ANOTHER Trump cover-up Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff published a statement. I have tremendous respect and regard for our Speaker and Representative Schiff, but the house is burning down!

The time for statements is over---our leaders must treat the Trump administration like the thugs they are. We are fighting for our democracy against criminals who will stop at nothing to stay in power!

Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff need to take a lesson from the classic gangster movie 'The Untouchables,' and they need to fight "The Chicago Way." The movie tells how Elliot Ness took down gangster Al Capone, using "Chicago" tactics. Chicago beat cop Jim Malone tells rule follower Elliot Ness how to beat a gangster:

Malone : [talking privately in a church] You said you wanted to get Capone. Do you really wanna get him? You see what I'm saying is, what are you prepared to do?

Ness : Anything within the law.

Malone : And *then* what are you prepared to do? If you open the can on these worms, you must be prepared to go all the way. Because they're not gonna give up the fight until one of you is dead.

Ness : I want to get Capone! I don't know how to do it.

Malone : You wanna know how to get Capone? They pull a knife; you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital; you send one of his to the morgue. *That's* the *Chicago* way! And that's how you get Capone. Now, do you want to do that? Are you ready to do that? I'm offering you a deal. Do you want this deal?

Supoena DNI Ratcliffe and if he refuses, put him in JAIL! Freeze his funding and use the power of Congress now! Act while there is still time! This is not a drill, we are in a street fight with thugs for our country.

This is part of our continuing coverage of the 2020 elections.
