I had a fling for a couple of months in Mexico. I am an American living in DC and he is a Canadian. We fooled around and filmed it, I don't have a copy of the video. I noticed he posted it on his Only Fans without my explicit consent. He did crop my face out of the video and blur out both my... Read more »

No. Treason is aiding and abetting another state actor to carry out war against his country of citizenship. It is narrowly defined, and only the US government can bring charges try someone for treason against the US.

The U.S. Government has been giving Isreal Billions of dollars in foreign aid for many years and getting little in return...so apparently it is legal.
