1. "Conspiracy against the US"

18 U.S. Code 371 - Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States
US Code

If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.

If, however, the offense, the commission of which is the object of the conspiracy, is a misdemeanor only, the punishment for such conspiracy shall not exceed the maximum punishment provided for such misdemeanor.
(June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 701; Pub. L. 103322, title XXXIII,  330016(1)(L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)
