There was no "American law" when Washington committed his treason, because there was no sovereign nation of "America". Washington's act of treason was to establish American sovereignty, in what we would call today a "break-away" republic of the UK.
Washington was a soldier, not a politician. The Continental Congress established the US. Washington's job was make that stick.
