Quote from Alexander Hamilton,

Hamilton is a little less clear in this issue, and not surprisingly because he was writing in Federalist No. 65 ,
“The subjects of its jurisdiction are those offenses which proceed from the misconduct of public men, or in other words, from the abuse or violation of some public trust. They are of a nature which may with peculiar propriety be denominated political as they relate chiefly to injuries done immediately to society itself.”

(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury
