The reason why the rhetoric and proposed laws make no sense, is because they are focusing on the liberties of citizens of this country.
I think they have the laws already defined as what treason is a citizen who makes war against the United States and gives comfort to its enemies.
Potential penalty is death heredity assets of the convicted can be seized.
No additional laws are needed.
The military handles non citizens that make war against the United States.
The weird thing is that John Mccains bill allows the military to sieze a U.S. Citizen if that person is deemed a Threat .
When the law passes, The president gets to define what constitutes this threat.Effectively making a blank law for the president to write.
