Republicans kept control of the Senate, empowering President Donald Trump to appoint more conservative federal judges and agency officials while shielding him from Senate Democratic efforts to investigate his administration.

The GOP’s gains in two states that overwhelmingly supported Trump in 2016, along with Republican retention of a hotly contested seats in Texas and Tennessee, would leave Democrats four votes shy of the 51 they need to take Senate control. Democrats lack enough opportunities to make up for their losses, with only seats in Nevada and Arizona offering the party a chance.

The report went on to include the following:

Republican Senate control is critical to Trump amid Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian election-meddling in 2016 and possible obstruction of justice. Trump is widely expected to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from overseeing the probe. If the president does, he’ll need Senate confirmation of a new nominee who could take control of the matter from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, viewed as Mueller’s strongest protector.
