The White House now assesses the chances of the Democrats to retain control of the Senate at 50. -50, says the report. However, President Joe Biden still believes Democrats have a good chance of retaining control of Congress and the administration is publicly sticking to an optimistic message, the report also said.

Republicans could also try to impeach Biden and launch investigations into the dealings of his son, Hunter Biden, if they take control of Congress, the report said. Democrats campaigned on issues such as abortion and their platform leg in an effort to retain control of both houses of Congress that traditionally favors the party that does not control the White House, the report added. Biden has increased his travel schedule in recent weeks to highlight Democrats’ work in Congress over the past two years, according to the report.
