    United States Code

    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115

    CHAPTER 115—TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES

    specifically

    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 115 > § 2381

    § 2381. Treason

    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

    On all Fed criminal laws the basic responsibility lies with the Attorney Generals Office and the Federal Districts different US Attorneys & their assistants.

    In many cases they task the FBI but all Federal Agents can and do do the investigations.

    You will have Fed agents attached to various military, like NCIC, doing more than DEA or ATF but all can start and work on such investigations
