Shit, for that matter, tell us the legal definition of intentional evidence.
Here, I'll make it easy.
Show us the legal definition of intentional evidence under the fedearl rules and how it is applied in criminal courts
American Federal Rules of Evidence as applicable in post-war Germany were not observed at the Nurnberg Trials; it is irrelevant and disingenous of you to try to make them relevant now, jew.
Again "intentional evidence" as defined by English Common Law, is still a matter of debate in legal circles and holds no validity when a jew tries to apply such evidence to shore up holocaustian claims.
Such "intentional evidence", as I stated before is generally applied to financial misconduct; credit card fraud, debt fraud ect, and, it is no surprise that the majority of criminals involved in these "white collar crimes" are jews.
