They believe the treaty was against the security interest of the US.

I understand you think their wrong, but even if not ratifying the treaty would be harmful to the country (which is debatable itself), that doesn't mean they agree. They would have to completely agree about the harm for it to be even vaguely treasonous, and really it would have to be serious deliberate harm at the behest of or in cooperation with, or to serve the interest of, our enemies.

I understand that some on the right have thrown "treason", around all to easily, but that isn't any reason to do the same.
