Skip to comments.Police investigating Cliven Bundy-related threats to Harry Reid
Posted on 04/29/2014 9:43:58 AM PDT by Jim Robinson
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 ...
Thanks for posting those. I am going to print them out.
No doubt ...
Threatened or promised? Reid is in the promise land area along with Obama but everyone is letting the cattle cars take them.
Sounds like a Medieval weapon.
Reid has crossed the rubicon for utter hate and vengeance. Harry is spiraling into space, drunk on Marxist power and obsessed by the stuff that wields it.
On a lighter note, his fruit cake spawn (”son”) seems to be the only Democrat defending him, and even he is known to have been diapered with a “job”, only by the heavy hand of Harry causing the job’s standard requirement to be lowered enough for baby spawn to crawl over it and justify the buy-off,...oops,...I mean— landing the position. LOL!
Gee...I hope they didn’t misconstrue my Louisville Slugger comments......
Reid’s support has always been by way of the Culinary Union which has a strong base in illegal immigrants. That is why Reid is laughing his head off at all those joy loving gamblers who care less for the USA and pay his supporters.
Designed to draw attention away from ethic complaints against Reid...the MSM will be all over this.
“When you have to shoot, shoot! Don’t talk!” Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez
also Reid is a terrible racist who should lose his franchise in the Senate. He said in 2010 that Obama was “clean and articulate” with no “NEGRO dialect”. You cant make that up!!
Also known as "the rat"?
My odds in the long run outweigh Harry's by far.
This is the ‘win-win’ scenario I was worried about.
Before I get flamed:
‘WH Bundy Strategy’
1. Provocation of the right
2. Alinsky-rooted attacks on the right
3. Misquotes for propaganda and inflammatory effect (accuracy not significant)
4. Social argument to split the right
5. Cause-effect of 1-4 in turn reinforces dogma against the right
WH ‘Win-win’ =
No matter the outcome, the Right is split, the extreme right will feel duty-bound to ‘react’ and no matter what happens, so long as the ‘Branch Davidian effect’ is avoided, the Left and big government win the propaganda war.
I may have poorly outlined the scenario in 1-5, but it’s all I have time for. I’m convinced this was gamed from the get-go and has been in planning since it came up in some dinner conversation with RAT-power-brokers after the the Summary Judgment against Bundy last July, and that the ‘military display’ was an intentional provocation with predictable results (and perhaps a ‘little help’ from well-placed plants).
I’m also of the opinion this is consequently just a ‘distraction’ (a manufactured crisis) and those in Nevada & elsewhere need to be very on-guard that they’re being manipulated and being used as pawns by those they’re standing against. Including Bundy himself.
Seriously: Just look at the source of the story (Politico).
Being not a gambler, I was not in Nevada to gamble. Was there to fulfill a promise to a friend. Had ample opportunity to speak with Nevadans, due to the nature of the visit and friend’s situation involving a medical matter, and while speaking with Nevadans during the time of waiting, Nevadans expressed some of the thoughts your post eluded to. Found not a single happy camper among the Nevadans and nobody supported dingy. Nevadans told me about the lay of the land where the policies that had been decided for the state were detrimental to them. Nobody could explain dingy being in power other than certain elements, inside the state, as have been mentioned and not mentioned in this thread. Was an eye opening visit, to say the least.
In this communists controlled Country that will never happen. America is being held hostage by a communists organization with King Obama as their chief. America is asleep and slow to realize they have been had.

I don’t care how, I would just like him to go away now.
Reid has said and done a lot of things over the years that served no real purpose other than to insult and challenge good Americans.I’m surprised that some unbalanced person hasn’t fixated on Harry a long time ago.
See, I knew it. A medieval weapon./sarc
OK Harry, I love you (based on hate-speech theory that two hates makes a love).
It’s OK for reid to threaten the “little people” but woe to those who defend themselves by like remarks!
I hope someone does crack Reid’s stupid head.
I have no intention of doing so and represent no threat to anyone, but when and if someone does, I will chuckle.
About time these sleazy, mouthy politicians reap what they sow.
Just my crack from the peanut gallery.
Never heard of federal investigation when Joe Arpio received a mail bomb (was it last year?). Barely saw any articles about it.
And we all understand that Reid’s characterization of Bundy as a “racist” and “domestic terrorist”, etc,
are precursors to justifying taking violent action against him.
Reid/leftists would deny that, but we understand where they’re going.
How far above the law is Reid? As a Senator is he not allowed to say anything he wants? Or, are there limits?
After all, Reid has powerful friends and relatives in key positions to carry out his desire to enforce his version of the law.
But he confirmed that the police are investigating threatening statements made against the majority leader.
