Legal Definition of Treason:
The betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.
Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution:
Any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort
has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term
aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of
allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms,
troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a
subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States
to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.
