If you have knowledge of a felony - solicitation of a bribe for example - you have to notify the authorities.
You can't lie to investigators if you talk to them, or actively hide evidence (obstructing justice) but I'm not aware of a general requirement to inform (with certain exceptions like mandated child abuse reporters). What are your thoughts on this?

IANAL, I’ll defer to you.
Here’s a statue that was posted on other threads. Appreciate your opinion:
18 US Code Sect.4 - Misprison of Felony- Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
