House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN's Manu Raju on Tuesday that the numbers in the Democratic caucus "are not even close" to move forward with impeaching President Trump, and that victories in court and concessions from the Justice Department on the Mueller report should be satisfying to Democrats.

RAJU: "If a majority of your caucus wants to go forward with an impeachment inquiry, would you go forward?"
PELOSI: "It's not even close in our caucus."
RAJU: "But eventually?"
PELOSI: "Why are we speculating on hypotheticals. What we're doing is winning in court. We won a victory getting the documents from the Justice Department today, for fear of further going to court, although we're still going to hold the attorney general in contempt today. ... Nothing is as divisive in our country, in my view, than impeachment."

Why it matters: Pelosi's stance has been unwavering, and even if more House Democrats support impeachment than have said so publicly, the caucus will not move forward unless they have the speaker's approval.

Tropical Storm Zeta is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane and bring dangerous storm surge conditions to parts of the northern Gulf Coast on Wednesday, per the National Hurricane Center.

The state of play: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) requested a pre-landfall Federal Declaration of Emergency in a letter to President Trump on Tuesday, ahead of the storm's expected arrival south of New Orleans.

Two addresses linked to the cryptocurrency Monero appeared on the site. Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh in a statement said no sensitive data had been exposed in the attack.
