          Rule 201(c)(2), Federal Rules of Evidence (mandatory notice)


Greetings Postmaster General, Postal Inspectors:


The enclosed VERIFIED CRIMINAL COMPLAINT, ON INFORMATION, formally charges Congressman Peter A. DeFazio with one or more violations of the Federal criminal statutes at 18 U.S.C. 241, 242 and 1341.


See also Oregon Revised Statutes (“ORS”) section 135.733 for a relevant Oregon State law governing slander and libel.


We also request that you please pay particular attention to the following documents that we mailed to Mr. DeFazio’s office in Eugene, Oregon, as archived here on the Internet (also enclosed):


The first “page01.gif” clearly provided Mr. DeFazio with actual notice stating “EVIDENCE: DO NOT DESTROY;  and, that Cover Page was duly date-stamped “RECEIVED Oct 5 2016 Peter A. DeFazio M.C. Eugene OR”.


The last “page14.gif” is crucially important, chiefly because it also constitutes evidence that Mr. DeFazio chose to conceal and remove the latter EVIDENCE from the custody of an Officer of the United States, in apparent violation of 18 U.S.C. 1519 and 2071 (conceals, removes).


Mr. DeFazio’s mailing envelope also displays “OFFICIAL BUSINESS” directly below the return address.  We conclude from the above that Mr. DeFazio was responsible, and is now specifically liable, for concealing and removing EVIDENCE of OFFICIAL BUSINESS from the legal custody of the U.S. House of Representatives, in probable violation of the latter two (2) sections of the Federal Criminal Code.

In our studied professional opinion, it is irrelevant if Mr. DeFazio expressly directed his staff to remove said EVIDENCE from his office in Eugene, Oregon.  Mr. DeFazio is still liable for same under the theory of respondeat superior, also known as vicarious liability (i.e. let the superior officer respond for the misconduct of subordinates).


The citation to 18 U.S.C. 4 on Page 1 of 8 was included by way of satisfying legal obligations imposed upon me to report all such Federal felonies to an officer in the civil or military authority of the United States.



Thank you for your continuing professional consideration in this matter.



Sincerely yours,


/s/ Paul Andrew Mitchell
