59. Treason does not require a state of war

You actually misquoted the constitution in your explanation. The important part is "or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort". The "or" is textually important. That means that the first part of the clause (in levying war against them) is not required. There may be a debate as to what defines someone as an enemy, but being technically at war is not a prerequisite for treason.
