(Article pushed as a breaking news alert to devices with the ABC News app)

The Republican-led House failed on Thursday to override President Joe Biden's veto of a resolution that would have prevented retirement fund managers from accounting for certain social factors when making investment decisions.

The vote was 219-200 in favor of overcoming the veto, but a two-thirds majority vote is needed.

Rep. Jared Golden of Maine was the only Democrat who voted yes. Fifteen members did not vote.

The House initially passed H.J. Res. 30 on Feb. 28 with the support of all Repub

Santos denies new allegation he organized 2017 credit card skimming operation

Rep. George Santos on Friday denied a new allegation from Gustavo Ribeiro Trelha that he was behind a credit card skimming operation that resulted in fraud charges for Trelha back in 2017.

Politico first reported Thursday that Trelha, who was convicted and deported to Brazil, sent a sworn statement to federal authorities this week accusing the New York Republican of organizing the operation in Seattle, Washington. The U.S. Secret Service confirmed to ABC News it received a letter from Trelha th

There's optimism in the Republican conference about the health of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell after lawmakers were briefed on McConnell's condition by his longtime aide and current chief of staff, Sharon Soderstrom, during a closed-door lunch on Thursday.

George Santos says he will comply '100%' with House ethics investigation

Embattled New York Rep. George Santos said Friday that he will comply "100%" with the House Ethics Committee, which is probing numerous allegations against the freshman Republican.

The committee voted unanimously Thursday to establish an "Investigative Subcommittee" to look into the claims made against Santos, which is the panel's first move toward formally investigating him.

Among the accusations the subcommittee will look at are whether Santos "engaged in unlawful activity with respect to hi

McCarthy defends giving Fox host Tucker Carlson access to previously unreleased Jan. 6 security video

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday defended giving Fox host Tucker Carlson exclusive access to nearly 42,000 hours of previously unreleased surveillance video from the day of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

He said other networks and the American public would get access to the video as "soon as possible" but would not commit to a timeline.

"Well, first of all, we didn't hand over anything. Tucker was interested. You had videos for more than two years. I didn't hear anybody concerne

Fox host Tucker Carlson says he's gained access to previously unreleased Jan. 6 security video

House GOP leaders appear to have given a Fox News host exclusive access to more than 40-thousand hours of previously unreleased surveillance camera footage from the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

After Axios reported on Monday that House Speaker Kevin McCarthy had authorized the release, Fox host Tucker Carlson said on his program Monday night that he had gained "unfettered" access to the video, saying that some of his "smartest producers" have been reviewing the footage at an undisclosed loc

Some of George Santos' constituents come to Capitol Hill to demand his expulsion

About 45 constituents of Republican Rep. George Santos traveled from New York's 3rd Congressional District to Capitol Hill Tuesday to demand Congress vote to expel him.

"We are here because Speaker McCarthy apparently cannot hear us when we speak from Long Island," said Jody Kass. Kass is the coordinator of Concerned Citizens of NY-03, a nonpartisan group who want to see Santos ousted from office.

"Speaker McCarthy, if the GOP is so concerned about election integrity, how about doing something

Democrats launch dads caucus to focus on family issues, push for paid leave

Four House Democrats launched the Congressional Dads Caucus on Thursday, joining together around a legislative agenda that includes expanding parental leave, the child tax credit and other family-first initiatives.

Reps. Jimmy Gomez of California, Andy Kim of New Jersey and Dan Goldman of New York -- all fathers -- announced the formation of the caucus alongside Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., a member of the Moms in the House.

"The formation of this caucus is rooted in a simple idea that dads ne

Ticketmaster's Taylor Swift ticket fiasco spurs new Senate hearing

It was a Ticketmaster meltdown that sent millions of Taylor Swift fans spiraling: lockouts, delays, hours of confusion and soaring aftermarket prices amid reports of scalpers.

During the November presale for Swift's upcoming "Eras" tour, Ticketmaster was forced to halt purchases for her shows, citing "extraordinarily high demands" and "insufficient remaining ticket inventory," drawing outcry from Swifties -- and the artist herself.

On Tuesday, the mega ticket company faced lawmakers -- with so

Questions answered about tracking classified documents

The revelations about the handling of classified documents involving President Joe Biden -- and previously former President Donald Trump -- have raised concerns about the procedures for keeping and tracking such records.

ABC News spoke about the legal and other requirements with contributor John Cohen, a former Department of Homeland Security acting undersecretary for intelligence.

Here are answers to some key questions:

House GOP promises to probe COVID-19 origins, ax proxy voting, magnetometers

With the 118th Congress set to begin Tuesday, House Republican leaders are out with their proposed rules for the new legislative session.

In what marks a substantial concession from Kevin McCarthy, the California Republican vying for the speakership, the rules package would allow just five Republicans to force a vote on ousting a speaker. For a Congress with at least a handful of "Never Kevin" Republicans, that provision means McCarthy's potential speakership could be short-lived.
