Crime that upsets senator (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

treason

'crime' is the definition.
(I know that treason is a type of crime)

'upsets senator' is the wordplay.
'upsets' is an anagram indicator.
'senator' anagrammed gives 'TREASON'.

'that' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for treason that I've seen before include "Deliberate act of betrayal" , "Serious crime" , "Stare on (anag.)" , "Act of betrayal of a government" , "Disloyalty (to one's country)" .)
