    WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump said Thursday that an FBI agent once involved in the special counsel’s Russia probe committed “treason,” and he called for Republican investigators in Congress to conclude their probes swiftly.
    ---------------------------
    Trump has known for months what the Obama DOJ/FBI and Clinton financed people did. He also knows the IG papers are going to Congress soon and that a special counsel will be appointed on this. Worse than Watergate.

      I think it meets a book definition of it. I think the federal statutes are pretty restrictive with regards to what is treason now however. Espionage has higher penalties I think than treason excluding both having the death penalty.
