While appearing on Thursday’s edition of Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” House Homeland Security Committee chairman Rep. Michael McCaul , R-Texas, said the improper handling of Democrat Hillary Clinton’s emails amount to treason, given who and what it jeopardized, Breitbart.com reported.
“Now we find out, and James Comey told me previously that it is very likely foreign adversary nations got into her private server,” he said. “This is why you have security protocols to protect classified information. She exposed it to our enemies and now, Steve, our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas. This is, in my opinion quite frankly, it’s treason.”

“The concern I’ve had all along is she has had seven special access programs on these devices. Those are the most classified, sensitive secrets in the federal government — many of them covert operations,” he added. “She took those devices overseas against the State Department’s wishes, and now we find out — and James Comey told me previously — that it’s very likely that foreign adversary nations got into her private server.”
On Wednesday, Fox News, citing sources familiar with the FBI’s investigations into Clinton’s private email server, reported that there was a “99 percent accuracy” likelihood that the server was hacked by at least five foreign intelligence agents. McCaul said Clinton would “absolutely” be exposed to blackmail if she becomes president.
In addition, McCaul pointed out, President Barack Obama was communicating with Clinton, through the use of a pseudonym, on the server.
According to 18 U.S.C. § 2381, someone found guilty of treason can face the death penalty:
Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
