One who violates his allegiance and betrays his country; one guilty of treason; one who, in breach of trust, delivers his country to an enemy, or yields up any fort or place intrusted to his defense, or surrenders an army or body of troops to the enemy, unless when vanquished; also, one who takes arms and levies war against his country; or one who aids an enemy in conquering his country. See Treason.
Hence, one who betrays any confidence or trust; a betrayer.
The scab is a traitor to his God, his mother, and his class. Jack London
A traitor is a betrayer - one who practices injury, while professing friendship. Benedict Arnold was a traitor, solely because, while professing friendship for the American cause, he attempted to injure it. An open enemy, however criminal in other respects, is no traitor. Lysander Spooner
This principle is old, but true as fate, Kings may love treason, but the traitor hate. Thomas Dekker
A traitor is everyone who does not agree with me. George III
Imagination, the traitor of the mind, has taken my solitude and slain it. Robinson Jeffers
