Federal law enforcement officials are investigating threats made against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the aftermath of his sharp-edged attacks against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, sources said Monday.
Reid has not minced words about Bundys battle with the Bureau of Land Management, referring to Bundys supporters as domestic terrorists and the rancher himself as a hateful racist. As hes stepped up his criticism, Reid has been the subject of threats himself, prompting an increase in his own security detail in recent days, people familiar with the matter said Monday.
Shennell Antrobus, a spokesman for the U.S. Capitol Police, declined to comment on the number of security personnel assigned to Reid or the nature of the threats against the Democratic leader. But he confirmed that the police are investigating threatening statements made against the majority leader.
We are currently looking into threatening statements made against Sen. Reid as part of an ongoing investigation, Antrobus said.
Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson declined to comment. Its not unusual for a politician in such a position of power to be the subject of threats; federal officials routinely investigate threats made against leaders of all stripes.
But the Reid inquiry comes as other Democrats are raising security concerns over the Bundy episode.
Somebody must have threatened to cost him votes.
Real actions against Bundy his property, loaded weapons...
Eh, no problem.
Some people get hot over it, and make some intemperate comments.
Now there’s reason to go F people up.
Just remember folks, this government serves us. We the people... And this is how they go about it.
Reid is desperate to make this whole thing go away. Too much light being shed on his corrupt dealings.
I remember speaking with numerous people while in Nevada. There were so many complaints that left Nevada wondering how dingy was a senator. Met nobody that was complimentary of dingy. Not one single soul. Don’t think was in the wrong part of town ... supposedly was dingy’s stronghold area.
Reid, Something will happen to stop Bundy.
Indeed. The police should be investigating Reid for his actions and his threats against Mr. Bundy.
Quite a moniker!
Common sense says that if Bundy even had a threatful thought about Reid, it would bee al over every news agency world wide.
I don’t encourage any violence or death threats against Harry Reid. I want him to die of natural causes.......SOON.
Apply the “Joe the plumber” treatment
Bunkerville MUST be destroyed in order to save it!
In order for Obama to Fundamentally transform the United States of America, a punitive example must be made of Cattle Rancher Cliven Bundy, and all who foolishly gave this hated enemy of Obananation aid and comfort.
All ye Liberty-loving Americans who have opposed the inevitable Oppression of Obamanation, look ye to the scar left where Rancher Bundys Pioneer family prospered since 1877, and remember ye well the mighty wrath of Feudal Lord Reid!

The SEIU controls who gets the votes in Nevada.
They control the Hotel unions.
But not Dirty Harry’s threats to Bundy. Oh, right. Democrat in 0bama’s regime.
Does that count?
Ever notice how Barry-Boy, the Hussein King, likes D words?
Yup, and here are a few of his/her/gender neutral: it favs:
* Deflect (accountability) downward
* Distract (see note below)
Note: Since pesky Putin has kept Obama occupied lately, the Weekly Distraction Duty has been jointly re-assigned to Feudal Lord Reid, and DOJ Gestapo Leader Eric the Racist Holder.
BTW, who knew that the Ancient Art of Community Organizing could be reduced to a simple list of D words? Lenin would be so proud!
I certainly did not realize the genius of The D List, and I guess that is why I have not yet won the Nobel Peace Prize - - - -. [Sigh].
Polutico’s headline at a glance connects Bundy to the threats, clever the way they worded it with ‘related.’
IIRC he won the last election by the skin of his teeth did he not?.....................just enough voter fraud to make the diff IMO.
Reid is openly threatening Bundy ...
