I looked up the definition of treason in the constitution and don't quite understand it. 

 

In the case of the United States vs. Aaron Burr, Chief-Justice Marshall said:

"There is no difficulty in affirming that there must be a war, or the crime of levying it cannot exist...

From this article: https://www.nytimes.com/1861/0...e-united-states.html

So unless there is overt war or forces arrayed against the country for the purposes of engaging in war, the treason charge is off the table.  No worries, the forces of good and reason appear to have sufficient ammunition to go after the orange idiot via other avenues.   Should be an interesting few weeks to come!
