WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP, & KRNV) -- U.S. Capitol Police are looking into threatening statements made against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

A police spokesman declined to give further details Monday, citing an ongoing investigation.

According to the Washington Post's Ed O'Keefe on Twitter, the U.S. Capitol Police confirms it is looking into "threatening statements" made towards Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid, and reports suggest that the statements are in response to his recent comments about the Cliven Bundy situation.

Reid, who is a Democrat from Nevada, has been an outspoken critic of Cliven Bundy. Bundy is a Nevada rancher who has thwarted U.S. government efforts to seize his family's cattle over his failure to pay more than $1 million in grazing fees and penalties for use of government land over the past 20 years.

Reid called Bundy a "hateful racist" after Bundy suggested that African-Americans might have had it better as slaves picking cotton. Reid has called on Republican leaders to denounce what he called Bundy's "hateful, dangerous extremism."

A spokesman for Reid declined to comment Monday.
