two questions about a passage 【"This man," the dodger declared, "is wanted for treasonous activities against the United States," and it offered a seven-point bill of particulars. The Chief Executive was accused, among other things, of betraying the Constitution, "turning the sovereignty of the U.S. over to the communist controlled United Nations," betraying such friends as Cuba, having "been wrong on innumerable issues," including Cuba and the Test Ban Treaty, encouraging racial riots, invading "a sovereign State with federal troops,' upholding the Supreme Court "in its Anti-Christian rulings," and appointing "Anti-Christians to Federal offices." 】 1.does "The Chief Executive“ here equals to "the president?" 2. what does "is wanted for "mean? does it mean "should be sentenced to treason?"

1. Yes, 'chief executive' = the president. The executive branch of the U.S. government has the job (among others) administration of the country, which involves, for one thing, with carrying out the laws passed by Congress (the legislative branch). It includes the president (the chief executive), the vice president and all cabinets, as well as some others.
