From checking online, I read the following: Flynn’s connections with Russia wouldn’t fall under treason law simply because Russia is not technically an enemy of the United States, which the law narrowly defines as anyone that the U.S. is openly or declaratively at war with. A person can aid Russia to the detriment of the U.S. practically all they want, and though their actions may violate other laws, it would not be treason. Flynn may be guilty of legally and morally reprehensible conduct, but it does not mean he is a “traitor” who engaged in “treason.” How did Flynn sell his country? Is this an opinion or a proven fact? Is he bing prosecuted for treason?
