"These politically motivated videos raises questions, but nothing I've seen indicates that Planned Parenthood violated federal law," the Nevada Democrat told reporters.

His remarks come after a second video was released Tuesday that shows another Planned Parenthood executive discussing the costs of saving and using fetal tissue. 
 
That followed an initial video released last week that started a political firestorm. In that video, a high-ranking medical officer candidly described the preservation of fetal  tissue. 
 
Reid added that the videos "should not take away from the important work Planned Parenthood does."

The Illinois Democrat rejected the notion that he was trying to distance himself from the organization, adding, "I support Planned Parenthood, but I don't know the details."
 
The group is currently under fire by Republicans, who are renewing their push to defund the organization.
