It ain’t quarters, folks.
Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testified before the Senate Judiciary committee in what will likely go down in history as the most bizarre and incendiary judicial interview process in history. Amid all the talk about Kavanaugh’s attacks, Lindsay Graham’s outbursts and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations of assault, one detail has gone mostly overlooked: Kavanaugh probably lied about his high school games. And someone in Congress is trying to cover it up.
During his testimony, Judge Kavanaugh claimed to have engaged in a game called “Devil’s Triangle” while in high school. He further asserted that the game bore a semblance to the popular drinking game Quarters, in which participants try to fling quarters into a glass. Kavanaugh even submitted a calendar from the period with entries that supposedly confirmed the dates on which he and friends had played.
The problem? Devil’s Triangle isn’t a drinking game. Rather, it’s a euphemism for a sexual threesome involving two men and one woman–exactly the situation Dr. Blasey Ford asserts Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge tried to create when they assaulted her. Furthermore, several outlets, including Queerty, have conducted extensive internet searches for records of a drinking game of that name. Thus far, nobody has turned up a reference to Devil’s Triangle drinking game until yesterday…when the Wikipedia entry for “Devil’s Triangle” mysteriously changed during Kavanaugh’s testimony.

Wikipedia moderators have already traced the origin of the page edits to a computer in the House of Representatives. The actual editor–as well as his or her motives–has yet to be identified. Wikipedia has also discovered a number of other edits to articles made during or following Kavanaugh’s testimony changed to reflect the nominee’s answers.
Reports have also called into question the accuracy of Kavanaugh’s statements regarding “boofing” (a popular term for anal sex, which the judge said referred to flatulence) and “Renate Alumnius.” Kavanaugh claims the latter refers to a date with a woman named Renate Schroeder, now Renate Schroeder-Dolphin. At least 14 of Kavanaugh’s classmates have references to Renate Alumnius in their yearbooks. Two of Kavanaugh’s classmates says the entry refers to having sex with Schroeder-Dolphin. Schroeder-Dolphin herself had endorsed Kavanaugh’s appointment until learning of the entry. She’s since withdrawn her support for him.
