If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed by the Senate it doesn’t mean he’ll definitely sit on the high court for life. Given the credible allegations against him, it is very possible that he would later be impeached from the Supreme Court. He might also be charged with sex crimes in the state of Maryland, and eventually go to jail if he is found guilty.
