WASHINGTON — The Latest on Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller's report (all times local):

11:20 a.m.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is brushing back impeachment questions, saying "it's not even close" to having enough support among House Democrats for a vote.

Pelosi said at a policy conference Tuesday that her "stock goes up" when President Donald Trump attacks her, as he did last week.

Trump lashed out at Pelosi while both were overseas commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy. He called her "Nervous Nancy" after it was reported she privately told Democrats she'd rather see him voted out of office and "in prison" than impeached.

Pelosi said she never criticizes the president while abroad and won't do so now because she's "done with him."

Dozens of House Democrats want Pelosi to start impeachment proceedings from the Trump-Russia report, but she prefers to conduct more investigations.

A resolution being voted on in the House would make it easier for Democrats to sue members of President Donald Trump's administration and other potential witnesses who refuse to comply with subpoenas.

The House resolution being considered Tuesday would authorize lawsuits against Attorney General William Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn for defying subpoenas pertaining to special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

It would also empower committee chairmen to take legal action to enforce subpoenas in the future without a vote of the full House, so long as they have approval from a bipartisan group of House leaders.

The votes aren't technically necessary, as Democrats already can go to court. But a House vote will give them increased standing if they do decide to file lawsuits.
