Lawyer says attack on Sen. Paul not political


A pre-trial hearing was set for November 30.

The man accused of attacking Sen.

Boucher faces up to a year in jail if convicted on the charge.

More frightening than the attack itself is the relative neglect this story has received.

All seven neighbors expressed shock at the "scary" attack on Paul as he was doing yard work last Saturday and they dismissed reports that it was the result of poor landscaping.

Unfortunately, Twitter's long and fuzzy history with verifications makes this a bit hard to swallow. The rally turned violent, left dozens injured and one dead after a auto drove into a crowd.

But the senator retweeted two reports on Wednesday that seemed to question that explanation.

"I appreciate all of the support from everyone", Paul said in his tweet on Wednesday.

Paul was "blindsided" by the assault, his aides have said in statements to the news media.

Meanwhile, the senator's injuries are worse than initially thought.

Paul suffered six broken ribs and lacerations on his lungs after police say his neighbor, 59-year-old retired doctor Rene Boucher, tackled the politician from behind Friday outside Paul's home, according to an arrest warrant by Kentucky State Police.

Shares of AT&T climbed 1.15 per cent on Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange, while Time Warner tumbled 6.51 per cent. President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized CNN as fake news on his social media Twitter account in the past year.

A pleural effusion "is the build-up of excess fluid between the layers of the pleura outside the lungs", according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Paul's office on Thursday did not immediately respond to a query about when the senator would return to the Senate. "Senator Paul does have lung contusions now".

Rene Boucher is charged with misdemeanor fourth-degree assault.

Though the State Police was unable to provide Fox News a timeline for when their investigation will be complete, a spokesman said "it is up to Commonwealth prosecutors" whether Boucher's charges could change from misdemeanor to felony based on the severity of those injuries. "Paul's ribs were broken", Stafford told CNN on Thursday. Alicia Stivers says she was the first person to see Paul after the attack. The report also said "the defendant admitted going onto Paul's property and tackling him".

Since the attack, his attorney suggested attacker Rene Boucher (an anesthesiologist) was unusually riled up over landscaping clippings left out by the Paul's, but other neighbors dispute those claims. He says it was a disagreement between two neighbors.

Inspired by her time in prison, Remy revealed she would count down the days until her release in seasons. The track is Remy's first release since Plata O Plomo , her collaborative album with Fat Joe .

"Which makes it all the more shocking that a next-door neighbor of many years who has not so much as exchanged an email or spoken word with Rand or (his wife) in several years, would race downhill and pummel Rand from behind", Stivers wrote in an email to The (Louisville) Courier-Journal. The injuries raise the prospect that Paul, who is recuperating in Kentucky, may be kept from Washington at a time when fellow Senate Republicans are eager to push a major tax overhaul through Congress.
