The US Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia has declined to investigate who is funding the 'thugs' who attacked him on video following President Trump's August 2020 White House nomination acceptance ceremony.
"The DC U.S. Attorney today confirmed to me that they will not pursue an investigation of who is funding the thugs who attacked my wife and me and sent a DC police officer to the hospital," wrote Paul via Twitter.

Shortly after the incident, Rand and his wife Kelley appeared on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," where he said "It was terrifying."
"I have never experienced anything like that in my life. We felt completely powerless."
"At first I was trying to look in their eyes and trying to have any kind of reason ... to see someone as a human being and I realized they did not see us as human beings," said Kelley Paul, adding "We were Trump supporters, so they absolutely despised us."
"in that moment, it was a bloodthirsty mob, and all I could think of was the man who was kicked in the head in Portland ... or the man whose jaw was broken [in Kenosha] or an eight-year-old Secoriea Turner. I really thought we were going to lose our lives, I thought someone was going to throw a brick. It was the most terrifying moment of my entire life," she continued.
