The Democrat who attacked Rand Paul made a startling admission in court

A deranged Democrat brutally assaulted Senator Rand Paul and left him with six cracked ribs.

The assailant – who was Paul’s neighbor – made his first appearance in court.

And what he admitted shocked everyone.

Rene Boucher – the liberal who pummeled Paul while the Senator was mowing his lawn – appeared in court and pled “not guilty” to misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree.

Liberal media outlets tried to push the story that attack was over a property dispute.

But Senator Paul began retweeting stories calling that fake news.

His neighbors believe it was over politics and now federal investigators are digging into the political motivation behind the attack.

The Washington Examiner reports:

“The Bowling Green, Ky., neighbor who allegedly attacked Sen. Rand Paul last weekend, causing six broken ribs, was aggressively anti-Trump and anti-GOP in his social media, calling for the impeachment of the president and urging special counsel Robert Mueller to “fry Trump’s gonads.”

Captured screenshots of Rene Boucher’s Facebook page provided to Secrets and taken down since the event also show that the anesthesiologist was a fan of the #NeverTrump clan…
… But seven neighbors in the Rivergreen gated community told Secrets Wednesday that the Pauls are friendly homeowners who kept their property tidy.

“The Pauls’ landscaping looks just like everyone’s place in Rivergreen. Wish I could get him to cut my lawn,” said neighbor Robert Warner. “As a friend, neighbor and senator, Rand has been first class in every way. What I find amazing is the fact that he cuts his own grass. Our neighborhood is fortunate that the Paul’s live here,” he added.”

This was the second time this year Paul was targeted by Democrats for political violence.

Over the summer, a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate Paul and other Republicans as they practiced for a Congressional baseball game.

The left has increasingly resorted to violence to push their agenda.

Black Lives Matter and Antifa are their foot soldiers out rioting in the streets to intimidate Republicans and other elected officials.

But now left-wing vigilantes are taking matters into their own hands.
