Treason, by definition in the US Code, requires actual war. Either taking up arms against the US yourself or helping outside forces that are engaged in hostilities with the US.
So no, even if Putin called Trump and said "hey we're gonna mess with the election" and Trump said "sweet, you're not fired." it's still not treason.

Hillary was a private citizen in the 2016 election. She was not a public officer. So if Trump and Russia were targeting DNC to damage her would not be damaging America. So that's why I think it is not treason.
