"Collusion" is a polite term for treason, the highest of crimes and misdemeanors. Trump should consider himself lucky if he is not hanged.
Not even close. "Collusion" is an invented crime, the legal equivalent of having cooties. Unless you're talking about anti-trust law, there is no such offense.
Treason is the act of aiding an enemy. It can only happen during a time of war.

Correct...we have rivals or adversaries. Enemies reside on the other end of a war. I can understand being confused though as the media in all its forms pushes so much spin and untruth that the actual meaning for words tend to get lost over time.
Did you know that words change their meaning over time? That is not a liberal conspiracy, it is a philological fact.
Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) is an approach to communication, personal development, and psychotherapy created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in California, United States in the 1970s. NLP's creators claim there is a connection between neurological processes (neuro-), language (linguistic) and behavioral patterns learned through experience (programming), and that these can be changed to achieve specific goals in life. Bandler and Grinder also claim that NLP methodology can "model" the skills of exceptional people, allowing anyone to acquire those skills. They claim as well that, often in a single session, NLP can treat problems such as phobias, depression, tic disorders, psychosomatic illnesses, near-sightedness, allergy, common cold, and learning disorders.
NLP has since been overwhelmingly discredited scientifically, but continues to be marketed by some hypnotherapists and by some companies that organize seminars and workshops on management training for businesses.
There is no scientific evidence supporting the claims made by NLP advocates and it has been discredited as a pseudoscience by experts.Scientific reviews state that NLP is based on outdated metaphors of how the brain works that are inconsistent with current neurological theory and contain numerous factual errors. Reviews also found that all of the supportive research on NLP contained significant methodological flaws and that there were three times as many studies of a much higher quality that failed to reproduce the "extraordinary claims" made by Bandler, Grinder, and other NLP practitioners. Even so, NLP has been adopted by some hypnotherapists and also by companies that run seminars marketed as leadership training to businesses and government agencies.
Greater and lesser magic (known also as high and low magic or collectively Satanic magic) is a system of magic within LaVeyan Satanism. Greater magic is a form of ritual practice and is meant as psychodramatic catharsis to focus one's emotional energy for a specific purpose. Lesser magic is the practice of manipulation by means of applied psychology and glamour (or "wile and guile") to bend an individual or situation to one's will.
