What they are doing would be used towards marking up any future legislation related to what happened. But in general, Congress has no "prosecutorial powers". That is up to the Executive Branch and DOJ's work is ongoing with the grand juries and indictments, and whatever they have gathered could eventually be provided to Congress, redacted as necessary, so as not to impact future trials.
