How is a federal crime defined?

A federal crime is a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress.

The FBI or Federal Bureau of Investigation is in charge of investigating federal offenses. Examples of these offenses include kidnapping, immigration offenses, illegal possession or sale of firearms and tax evasion.
