Stevens said he had admired Kavanaugh's judicial work and had written positively about it in one of his books, "Six Amendments", which proposed a number of changes to the Constitution.

Smith described claims by Christine Blasey Ford, who says Kavanaugh sexuall assaulted her at a party in the 1980s, as: 'A credible allegation, not credibly denied'.

Stevens added, "I've never really been a political person". When asked his opinion on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, whom Stevens had once lauded, he said his views have changed after watching Kavanaugh's hearing.

"The complaints do not pertain to any conduct in which Judge Kavanaugh engaged as a judge", Henderson said in a statement. "It's not so clear that, you know, I think going forward, that sort of middle position, you know, it's not so clear whether we'll have it".

Stevens is 98, and he retired from the Supreme Court in 2010.

The researchers nicknamed the object " The Goblin ", because of the discovery date and the "TG" in the provisional designation. These objects were first noticed in October, 2015, from a Japanese telescope atop Mauna Kea, a dormant volcano in Hawaii.

Kavanaugh showed his committee that he was biased, according to Stevens, and for that reason he's not qualified to be a Supreme Court justice.

Even if the court splits 5 to 4 on the nation's most important issues, Sotomayor said, it is important for the public to see that doesn't create animosity among the nine justices. Former justices do not normally comment on pending Supreme Court nominations, and Stevens is the only living former justice to comment on whether Kavanaugh should be confirmed. He was appointed in 1975 by President Gerald Ford, a Republican, but he voted with the court's liberal wing for much of his tenure.

"I thought [Kavanaugh] had the qualifications for the Supreme Court, should he be selected", Stevens explained, speaking in Boca Raton. Last March, Stevens penned an op-ed for the New York Times in which he called for the repeal of the Second Amendment, describing the concern that an unarmed populace is vulnerable to tyranny as "a relic of the 18th century". Nine others were arrested on the fourth floor of Dirksen Senate Office Building.

The Senate voted 51 to 49 on Friday morning to invoke cloture, which gives the Senate a maximum of 30 hours to debate.

Trump, himself accused by numerous women during the 2016 presidential race of sexual misconduct, wrote on Twitter that the Federal Bureau of Investigation report showed that the allegations against Kavanaugh were 'totally uncorroborated'.
