There must be two witnesses to the same overt act of treason to convict a person of treason, unless the person confesses to it in open court. See the US Constitution, Article III, Section 3, Clause 1, which states:

"Treason against the United States shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court."

Acting against ones own country, under the law, is a crime known as Treason. Treason implies a disloyalty to one's own nation, or in a sense, become known as a traitor to your country. To act against your country is to betray your country, and as it pertains to the United States, it is defined in the Constitution, and is the only crime that is truly defined by the document. It is found in Article III, Section 3 that defines treason as follows..."Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attained." It was recently that on October 11, 2006, a federal grand jury issued the first indictment for treason against the US since 1952, and it was with charging Adam Yahiye Gadahn for videos in which he spoke supportively of al-Qaeda. However, treason is a term used in many countries, and not exclusive for the United States. One only needs to look at England's history to know that.
