The Constitution does not list such an ability among the powers of congress, so I’m going to assume they cannot do it.

Actually it does have the authority to pass legislation, not subject to judicial review, and has done so more than 100 times. The last time I recall was at the behest of the outgoing majority leader Little Tommy, they passed a special dispensation for the removal of some trees, from his property.
