I’m glad somebody agrees with me on that point. From Article III, Section 3:

“Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”

Under a literal reading of Article III, Section 3, these particular crimes would probably not be considered treason, especially by the Roberts Court. But it seems to me that a reading of “levying War against them” only slightly broader might pass, especially as the term “war” is used today.
