Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will return to Washington on Monday, based on his senior political adviser — 10 days after a sudden and weird badault at his Bowling Green house left him with half a dozen damaged ribs and lung issues.
Adviser Doug Stafford stated Paul will probably be again at work within the Senate on Monday, which Paul confirmed quickly after on Twitter. Authorities say Paul’s subsequent door neighbor, Rene Boucher, attacked Paul from behind at his house throughout the Nov. three altercation; Boucher has pleaded not responsible to badault.

“Kelley and I want to thank everyone once again for your thoughts and prayers for my recovery,” Paul tweeted on Monday morning, referring to his spouse. “While I’m still in a good deal of pain, I will be returning to work in the Senate today, ready to fight for liberty and help move forward with tax cuts in the coming days and weeks.”
Boucher’s lawyer has maintained that the badault was over a “matter that most people would regard as trivial,” though neither the legal professional, nor the senator’s aides have elaborated. Paul tweeted final week that along with six fractured ribs, an X-ray indicated he had a pleural effusion, which is fluid buildup across the lungs.
