In 2010, Stevens retired from the bench after serving for 35 years - one of the longest tenured justices in history.
But Republicans moved forward with plans for a key procedural vote on Friday and a final vote on Saturday on confirming the conservative federal appeals judge for a lifetime job on the top US court. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voting against cloture, and Democratic Sen.
The judge passed through a procedural vote on Friday and is expected to be narrowly confirmed on Saturday. Kavanaugh denies the allegations.
"I think it's worse, I regret to say it", he said. Ford said that she was pushed into a bedroom and onto a bed at the party, and Kavanaugh got on top of her, groped her, and tried to take off her bathing suit, while he and his friend Mark Judge laughed.
One of the women, Christine Blasey Ford, gave sworn testimony before the committee last Thursday before Kavanaugh gave his own statement. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., by repeatedly asking if she'd ever had alcohol-related blackouts. I might have been too emotional at times.

Fabrizio Stabile visited the BSR Cable Park's Surf Resort in Waco and used the park's wave pool earlier this month. Symptoms start between one and nine days after swimming or other nasal exposure to Naegleria-containing water.
"What I'd like to do is raise money for Brett Kavanaugh's family to use for security or however they see fit". "I believe that an independent and impartial judiciary is essential to our constitutional republic".
"I thought (Kavanaugh) had the qualifications for the Supreme Court should he be selected", Stevens said in Boca Raton, according to The Palm Beach post. 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. I feel his performance in the hearings ultimately changed my mind'.
Stevens cited commentary by Harvard University law professor Laurence Tribe and others suggesting Kavanaugh had raised doubts about his political impartiality when he asserted that sexual misconduct accusations he faced stemmed from an "orchestrated political hit" funded by left-wing groups seeking "revenge on behalf of the Clintons".
Stevens also said political leaders and the court have failed to fix the nation's confidence in the judicial branch's separation from the president and the legislature. Almost 1,000 law professors signed a letter this week that said he "displayed a lack of judicial temperament that would be disqualifying for any court, and certainly for elevation to the highest court of this land".
Stevens even once praised Kavanaugh directly in a book he wrote in 2014.
