Speaking to a crowd in Boca Raton, Florida, the 98-year-old Stevens suggested that Kavanaugh's temperament should disqualify him.
Stevens, who's praised Kavanaugh before, says he's changed his mind about Kavanaugh for reasons unrelated to Kavanaugh's "intellectual ability". "I feel his performance in the hearings ultimately changed my mind".
"I think the senators should pay attention to that", Stevens said. Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced she will vote to confirm Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, condemning the "gutter-level" debate surrounding his nomination. Kavanaugh strongly denied the allegations later in the hearing, calling the hearing a "circus" and sparring with Democrats as they questioned him about his drinking and character.
Brenner agreed with Stevens that Kavanaugh's "demeanor" was not befitting of a Supreme Court justice.
Stevens opined, "I thought he had the qualifications for the Supreme Court, should he be selected".

Stevens, who sat on the Court during Bush v. Gore, said the influence of partisan politics on the judicial branch "is worse" than ever, Ramadan notes.
The man who has served since 1988 retires this year and is likely to be replaced by controversial judge Brett Kavanaugh who has been the subject of an FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations.
"Although we may never know with complete certainty the identity of the victor of this year's presidential election, the identity of the loser is clear", Stevens wrote in the strongly worded dissent. The incident allegedly took place when they were both in high school.
Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan expressed concern Friday over the court's lack of a swing vote with Justice Anthony Kennedy's departure from the bench. He had even favorably cited one of Kavanaugh's opinions in his 2014 book Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution. And it's not so clear that I think going forward that sort of middle position - it's not so clear whether we'll have it'. 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".
