That's not how it works.
Anon, when people say "Fed" typically they mean federal informant. You know, people who where just retarded and downloaded Dolphin Porn (Potentially Mark Mann, Gahoole ect) so the real Fed take your hard drive and give you a deal in exchange for turning states evidence. Another example is people selling fire arms in a shady way like Acid Man for example. Im not calling Mark or Gahoole a fed, but iirc Acid Man did admit to talking with the Federal Government. And we know for a fact Jіm Watkіns, his son Code Monkey, and CrіppleKike have turned states evidence.
Take for example Andrew Auernheimer who was arrested for violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and was caught with cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, and Schedule 2 and 3 pharmaceuticals. You see, Weev likely squealed like a pig in order to get a reduced sentence and now is a stool pigeon. Or Christopher Cantwell is another well known example of a guy who got jammed up for being a retard and likely turned State's evidence in order to cut a deal.
