1. Ask the ACLU-they got Ollie North off, and forever no Iran/Contra can be looked into

2. State or federal law? If state, which one?

There are a lot of different laws, depends on the jurisdiction.

6. It would be federal only if the case the evidence pertained to

was part of a federal investigation or prosecution in the first place.

Here is the Texas evidence tampering statute: http://law.onecle.com/texas/penal/37.09.00.html

Here is one of many federal statutes: (relates to witness tampering) http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1512
