Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Friday calls the House GOP agenda "extreme" and says its member shouldn't be focusing so much on investigations. 

"You know what the American people want us to do-they want us to do things to make their lives better," Schumer told CNN. They don’t want just Congress to investigate."

The GOP-controlled House voted Tuesday to create a select subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government within the Judiciary Committee.

The subcommittee will be led by Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan.

In addition, Kentucky Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, said Wednesday his panel will  investigate President Joe Biden and his family regarding their connections to China. 

Other investigations that the House GOP plans to look into include the origins of COVID-19 and President Joe Biden's handling of the record migration at the southern U.S. border.
