Entries in the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s high-school yearbook that appear to reference sex and alcohol have led some to paint him as a hard-partying young man.
Kavanaugh’s past has come under scrutiny as he and Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused him of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school, testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
He released pages of his calendar from 1982 on Wednesday.
Kavanaugh has repeatedly asserted that he was focused on grades and sports in high school. His senior-class yearbook page includes a blurb mentioning “Keg City Club (Treasurer) — 100 Kegs or Bust” and “Devil’s Triangle,” often used as a slang term for sex involving two men and a woman.
In his hearing today, Kavanaugh said Devil’s Triangle was a drinking game.
But there is another definition for the term that is more concerning.
Take a look:
Kavanaugh said Devil’s Triangle is a drinking game. Really? Ummm… pic.twitter.com/yCo9khsqQE

Based on extensive interviews by me and @katekelly with Kavanaugh's former Georgetown Prep classmates, what he just said about the meanings of "boofed" and "Devil's Triangle" is not true.

Can someone who played "devil's triangle the drinking game" explain the rules to me?
Where I'm from it means something totally different.

Has anybody found the rules of the devil's triangle drinking game, which is totally a venerable tradition that it is real?

Dude just dropped a threesome reference in a confirmation hearing and NOBODY on the Senate is wise enough to know that Devil's Triangle is a threesome between two men and one woman

Kavanaugh is showing all of the country how disrespectful he's growing. Also, his explanations about "devil's triangle" and "FFFFourth of July" are ridiculous and can likely be rebutted by witnesses later. Another reason for the FBI to get involved. #KavanaughHearings pic.twitter.com/bGuZUetBvH
