Rand Paul returns to Washington following assault

13 November 2017

Paul has tweeted articles from Breitbart and the Washington Examiner, which claim neighbors of Paul and Boucher believe the incident was not a landscape dispute. Paul previously said on Twitter he suffered the broken ribs from the November 3 incident and that X-rays showed a pleural effusion, which is a buildup of fluid in the tissues that line the lungs and the chest.

Boucher, a Democrat, admitted to tackling Paul, according to an arrest warrant from Kentucky State Police.

Paul tweeted he will be ready to move forward with tax cuts in the coming days.

Last week at an arraignment hearing, Boucher pleaded not guilty to the charges. Rand Paul will return to the Senate on Monday after being seriously injured at his home in an alleged attack by his neighbor earlier this month.

Boucher was charged with fourth-degree assault, a misdemeanor. The law offices of Thomas N. Kerrick confirmed by phone Monday morning that the senator has retained their services. But Paul's senior advisor, Doug Stafford, tells WDRB that this is a serious criminal matter involving serious injury. An argument over leaf clippings is said to be the reason behind the attack. Paul's ribs were broken. If politics were a factor, there could be possible federal charges against Mr. Boucher. He called it "a very regrettable dispute" that was "trivial".
