Q: The feds are saying unless you turn in people they will charge you with a crime you didnt commet
A: Sounds like they are putting pressure on you with the hopes that you cooperate with them. Call a local criminal lawyer to understand the liability you are facing. There is not enough information in your question to get any meaningful advice here.

A: Sounds like a game of chicken. However, in this case, you shouldn't say anything without legal representation and counsel. They can threaten to bring charges but if they had charges to bring more than likely they would bring them. They don't have to bargain with you. Get a lawyer to help you go and talk to them and advise you what to answer and what not to answer.
