Senator Rand Paul has been one of Donald Trump’s top allies in the Senate.
And it’s earned him the hatred of the left.
But he was at his home when a Democrat barged on to his property and launched one unthinkable assault.
Paul was mowing his lawn when his neighbor, Rene Boucher, violently attacked him.
Boucher allegedly tackled Paul so violently, he sustained five fractured ribs and it’s uncertain when he can return to Washington.
Even more disturbing is that this attack is being investigated as a planned assault specifically because of Paul’s politics.
Boucher is a registered Democrat whom neighbors say is a vocal socialist.
He also has multiple social media posts ranting about President Trump.
The Blaze reports:
“The FBI has confirmed the motive behind the assault on Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.).
What do they believe?
According to local Kentucky news station WNKY-TV, the FBI launched an investigation into the attack shortly after it happened. They believe the attack, which occurred Friday afternoon, was politically motivated.
The Daily Caller revealed Saturday evening that the assailant, 59-year-old Rene Boucher, is a registered Democrat whose Facebook page was riddled with posts voicing his opposition to President Donald Trump and the GOP.
Boucher allegedly assaulted Paul while he was mowing his lawn around 3:20 p.m. Friday afternoon. According to reports, the two are neighbors and have had an ongoing feud, though it’s not clear what the disagreement is.
Boucher was arrested Friday night and booked in the Warren Country Regional Jail on $5,000 bond. He was charged with fourth degree assault. He has since been released, according to WNKY. It’s not clear when his first court date will be.”
This is the second time this year Paul has been the victim of an unhinged Democrat committing violence.
Over the summer, Paul was among the Congressional Republicans practicing for a baseball game when a Bernie Sanders supporter targeted them for assassination.
The liberal shooter was only stopped because of Majority Leader Steve Scalise’s armed security detail.
This attack on Senator Paul is just as shocking.
His private property was invaded by a lunatic liberal who had mayhem on his mind.
The violent attack on Senator Paul is the latest example of how the left has lost their minds over the election of Donald Trump.
Despite the fake news media narrative that Trump is poisoning the political discourse, it’s the liberals who are targeting Republican lawmakers with attempted killings or beatings.
