Graem Bauer and President Charles Logan deceive the American government and military to carry out treason during Day 5.

Treason was the act of betraying one's country. In the United States of America, the most severe form of punishment for committing treason was execution. A number of individuals throughout the various Days committed (or were accused of committing) this crime, many of whom put their own personal interests before national security.

Note that a large number of the traitors on this list are moles.

Background information and notes Edit

  • The Constitutional definition of treason is "levying War against the United States, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." To convict on charges of treason requires at least two witnesses or a confession in open court.
  • Some of the crimes claimed to be treason in 24 may not fit the Constitutional definition. For instance, Tony Almeida was imprisoned for treason following Season 3 for facilitating Stephen Saunders' escape by redeploying the men that had Saunders surrounded. In reality, the crime Almeida committed was not treason; it should have been "Permitting Escape by Federal Officer" punishable by 5 years in prison.
