DOJ and District Court Judge Conspire in Witness Tampering


Forcing a witness to change sworn testimony is the crime of witness tampering.

On May 2, in Michigan’s Eastern District Court, Department of Justice (DOJ) Attorneys and District Court Judge Nancy Edmunds conspired to commit the crime of witness tampering against legal researcher and author Peter Hendrickson.

Judge Edmunds granted the DOJ’s request to force Mr. Hendrickson to change sworn testimony on his tax returns.

Forcing someone to change sworn testimony is a crime even when a judge orders it.

Judge Edmunds did so without even the formality of a trial.

Official Treasury Department Certificates of Assessment show Hendrickson owes no taxes for the years in question. Nowhere in the complaint does the DOJ present evidence that Hendrickson owes anything or that his testimony is false.

Three previous DOJ lawsuits have failed to suppress Mr. Hendrickson’s book, ’Cracking the Code- the Fascinating Truth about Taxation in America’. The desperate efforts to silence Mr. Hendrickson are because of what he reveals in that book.

“Cracking the Code” shows how key terms in the code such as “wages,” “employer,” “employee,” and “trade or business” are defined to limit the income tax to certain federally privileged activities. Earnings not connected with such privileged activities are not subject to the tax.

Unaware of these special definitions, most Americans give the words their common meaning and mistakenly pay taxes they do not owe.

The limited nature of the tax is not a matter of Hendrickson’s opinion, or creative interpretation. The clear words of the law and dozens of United States Supreme Court rulings confirm his research and analysis.

The IRS agrees, too, as the Service continues to send full refunds-- Social Security and Medicare ‘contributions’ included-- to all who file accurate returns based on what they learn in “Cracking the Code.”

Hendrickson’s web site,, shows copies of refund checks and credits that total over $1.7 million received by his readers since 2003. This amount continues to grow every week.

While the DOJ works to suppress Hendrickson’s book the hard evidence -- the words of the law, dozens of Supreme Court rulings, and the ongoing stream of complete refunds -- remains on the side of the liberating revelations in ’Cracking the Code-’ the Fascinating Truth about Taxation in America’.
