On Saturday, attempts to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court officially failed. After being confirmed by the Senate, Kavanaugh was sworn in as the newest justice.

After the news, Christine Blasey Ford, who accused Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both in high school, responded to the news. She also answered whether she would try to have him impeached,

Ford's attorney Debra Katz said that Ford does not want to try to have Kavanaugh impeached if the Democrats win Congress in November 2018. She told CNN that Ford has no desire to drag the process out for that long.

"Professor Ford has not asked for anything of the sort. What she did was to come forward and testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee and agree to cooperate with any investigation by the FBI and that's what she sought to do here," Katz said.

Katz also said Ford doesn't regret coming forward even though she wanted to keep her story private.

"I don't think she has any regrets. I think she feels like she did the right thing," Banks said. "And this was what she wanted to do, which was provide this information to the committee so they could make the best decision possible. And I think she still feels that was the right thing to do, so I don't think she has any regrets."

Hopefully, this means that the entire process is completed and the nation will be able to move on from this divisive moment.
