06 November 2017

Fox News reported that Boucher allegedly attacked the senator and one-time presidential candidate as Paul, 54, was mowing his lawn.

"Kelley and I appreciate the overwhelming support after Friday's unfortunate event. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers".

Rand Paul was assaulted at his home in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Friday, according to Kentucky State Police.

According to the neighbor, Senator Paul and Boucher have had ongoing problems. "Day by day", he added.

The motivation for the attack is not clear at this time.

Another former Trump campaign aide, George Papadopoulos, has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation . The anti-Trump media appears to have quite the connection to the investigation led by Special Counsel Bob Mueller.

People who know both men said they are well-known medical professionals in this southwestern Kentucky town. It's a cloth vest partially filled with rice and secured by Velcro straps that is created to relieve back pain by delivering heat directly to the areas of the back where most pain is felt.

"He was active on social media and said some negative things about the Republican agenda", Jones said. But more, recently Paul has emerged as a leading defender of Trump's policies and has golfed with the president at Trump's Virginia golf course. It was unclear if Boucher has an attorney, and he could not be reached for comment late on Saturday. He said on Sunday that Boucher is divorced and lives alone.

A criminal complaint cited by the network says that Paul "told police that his neighbor came onto his property and tackled him from behind, forcing him to the ground and causing pain". But an unprecedented wave of threats against House and Senate lawmakers this year has prompted congressional security officials to review and follow up on thousands of threatening messages to members of both parties.

In June, Paul was among several congress members practicing in Washington, D.C. for the annual congressional baseball game when a gunman opened fire, wounding Rep. Steve Scalise.
