Mr. Paul's return to work will ease Republicans' efforts to line up votes for a major package of tax changes, a top priority of the party's congressional caucus and President Donald Trump.

Rand Paul spoke out on Monday for the first time since being attacked by his neighbor 10 days ago, saying in an interview that there's "no justification" for the attack. An argument over leaf clippings is said to be the reason behind the attack.

"From my perspective, I'm not really too concerned about what someone's motive is", Paul told the Washington Examiner.

Paul returned to the Senate Monday afternoon as Republicans began marking up their tax plan in the finance committee.

Paul's socialist neighbor, Rene Boucher, tackled Paul from behind while he was mowing his lawn, leaving Paul with six broken ribs.

"Kelley [Paul] and I want to thank everyone once again for your thoughts and prayers for my recovery", Paul wrote on Twitter, referring to his wife.

Boucher has pleaded not guilty to fourth-degree assault, but federal charges may be coming if it is determined that Paul was attacked for his political views.

Boucher's attorney told CBS News that the attack was not politically motivated, but rather "a very regrettable dispute between two neighbors over a matter that most people would regard as trivial". "This was not a 'fight, ' it was a blindside, violent attack by a disturbed person", Stafford said in a statement. The Senate is expected to vote later this month on its version of the bill.
