It is always better not to speak to the FBI rather than lie. If you are caught lying charges like obstruction of justice, or witness intimidation are likely results of lying to law enforcement officials.
If you are somebody that you know has been asked to speak with law enforcement you always have a right to be represented by an attorney.
