  • Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged past as a hard-partying high
    schooler and college student are at issue after two women accused
    publicly him of sexual misconduct in the early 1980s.
  • Kavanaugh’s high school yearbook page includes potentially
    sexually explicit references and mentions of an alcohol-soaked
    party culture.
  • He has been accused of sexually assaulting a girl in high
    school and exposing himself to a fellow female student in
    college. In both instances, the women claim he was intoxicated.
  • Kavanaugh denies the allegations.

Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s alleged past as a hard-partying high
schooler and college student are at issue after two women accused
President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee of sexual
misconduct during his years at Georgetown Preparatory School and
Yale University.

Among the evidence some are pointing to that Kavanaugh and his
friends at the elite all-boys high school participated in an
alcohol-soaked party culture are references on Kavanaugh’s senior
class
yearbook page
, which includes a blurb mentioning “Keg City
Club (Treasurer) — 100 Kegs or Bust” and “Devil’s Triangle” —
slang for sex between two men and a woman.

WUSA, a DC-area CBS affiliate,
obtained a copy of the yearbook
from an attorney representing
a woman who brought it to light after Christine Blasey Ford
publicly accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.

Ford, now a professor of psychology, alleges that Kavanaugh
forced himself on her, locked her in a room, groped her, and
covered her mouth to mask her screams during a drunken house
party when she was 15 and he was 17. Ford is set to
testify in open court about her claim on Thursday.

On Sunday, The New Yorker
published an allegation
from a former Yale University
classmate of Kavanaugh’s, Deborah Ramirez, who claims he exposed
himself to her without her consent at a dorm-room party during
the 1983-84 school year.

Kavanaugh has categorically denied both Ramirez and Ford’s
allegations.

“This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people
who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said
so,” he said in response to The New Yorker story on Sunday. “This
is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on
Thursday about the truth.”

Attorney Michael Avenatti
said in an email
to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sunday
that he has “significant evidence” that Kavanaugh, his Georgetown
Prep friend Mark Judge, and others plied women with alcohol and
drugs “in order to allow a ‘train’ of men to subsequently gang
rape them” during house parties in high school.

Avenatti
elaborated to Politico
later on Sunday that he represents a
group of people, including one victim and multiple witnesses, who
can corroborate allegations involving Kavanaugh and Judge. Judge
had previously denied knowledge of Ford’s allegation.

The attorney, who also represents adult film star Stormy Daniels
in her lawsuit against Trump, suggested that another cryptic term
on Kavanaugh’s yearbook page is a sexually explicit reference.

“Brett Kavanaugh must also be asked about this entry in his
yearbook: ‘FFFFFFFourth of July,'” Avenatti tweeted
Sunday night. “We believe that this stands for: Find them, French
them, Feel them, Finger them, F*ck them, Forget them. As well as
the term “Devil’s Triangle.” Perhaps Sen. Grassley can ask him.”

While delivering remarks at a law school in March 2015, Kavanaugh
made a jocular reference to his high school alma mater
in a recorded clip
that has recently attracted attention.

“We had a good saying that we’ve held firm to to this day, as the
dean was reminding me before the talk, which is what happens at
Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep. That’s been a good
thing for all of us,” the judge said, chuckling.
