Section 3.

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 attainted.

So, are you saying that he is not adhering to Russia, or giving aid and comfort to any of the US's enemies? I am not sure of the definition of adhering in this context, but it is quite easy to see how exposing the methods used to spy would be giving aid to the US's enemies, it after all led directly to Crimea being invaded and annexed.
