(Liberty Bell) – We all remember how the left treated Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing.
It was sick and disgusting. The left sought to ruin this man’s life all because he was nominated to the court.
He’d gone his whole career enjoying bipartisan support for his judgeship and by all accounts was a very reasonable judge.
Yet, because he was Trump’s second nominee, the Democrats launched a shameful, full-on assault that history will not remember fondly.
That is, unless the left’s attacks on Judge Amy Coney Barrett, who by all accounts will be Trump’s nominee to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, overshadows the shame that was their assault on Kavanaugh.
So far, even Coney Barrett’s adopted children are not safe from the left-wing media vitriol.
Democrats began smearing Judge Amy Coney Barrett on Friday night before President Donald Trump even nominated her to become the next Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, which he is expected to do on Saturday afternoon.
Dana Houle, a Democrat activist who was once a chief of staff on Capitol Hill to a Democrat lawmaker, tweeted Friday night that he hopes Barrett is investigated over the children she and her husband adopted from Haiti. “I would love to know which adoption agency Amy Coney Barrett & her husband used to adopt the two children they brought here from Haiti,” Houle wrote.
“So here’s a Q: Does the press even investigate details of Barrett’s adoptions from Haiti?” Houle wrote in a follow-up tweet. “Some adoptions from Haiti were legit. Many were sketchy as hell. And if the press learned they were unethical & maybe illegal adoptions, would they report it? Or not bc it involves her children.”
In a third follow-up tweet, Houle added: “Would it matter if her kids were scooped up by ultra-religious Americans, or Americans weren’t scrupulous intermediaries & the kids were taken when there was family in Haiti? I dunno. I think it does, but maybe it doesn’t, or shouldn’t.”
According to his LinkedIn page, Houle is a former campaign manager to several top Democrats like former Rep. Paul Hodes (D-NH) and current Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT). He also was Hodes’ chief of staff in Congress. On his website, Houle describes himself as an effective Democrat operative who has taken out sitting Republicans.
He describes his career as follows:
In Michigan I worked in organized labor, as a policy analyst in the legislature, and managed campaigns from state representative up to statewide office. Despite my love for Detroit, in 2005 I moved to Washington DC to do national politics. I’ve managed two winning campaigns against incumbent Republican Congressmen in New England, served as a chief of staff on Capitol Hill and managed races in Minnesota, Kansas and Louisiana. I’ve also been blogging about politics at various places since 2003.
His tweets did not escape the notice of top Senate Republicans, who slammed Houle’s sick smears of Barrett and her family.
Read this from Democrat activist & Hill staffer. Questioning whether #AmyConeyBarrett *illegally* adopted her children from Haiti, maybe snatching them from birth parents! This is the Dem gameplan. Nothing but raw bigotry and hate. I promise you, this will not stand pic.twitter.com/JEMqhe05dY

Houle appeared to try to walk back his smears of Barrett’s adopted children, admitting he probably shouldn’t have said such things.
He apparently wasn’t above just turning around and bashing Barrett and her family all over again in later tweets, however.
