Treason is defined in the constitution and can occur outside the context of a declared war. Thus Trump can't be charged with treason legally even though is behavior resembles it.

The Rosenberg's were charged with espionage because the USSR was an ally not an enemy and remained so on paper.

I imagine an appropriate charge can be found when Trump is brought to heel. He can certainly be impeached. Maybe Putin will give him asylum.
