1. What does "The Constitution" have to do with what the people involved in the Jan 6th incident

are being charged with?

Treason and sedition are crimes and illegal:

https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/part-I/chapter-115
18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 115 TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES
 2381. Treason
 2382. Misprision of treason
 2383. Rebellion or insurrection
 2384. Seditious conspiracy
 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government
 2386. Registration of certain organizations
 2387. Activities affecting armed forces generally
 2388. Activities affecting armed forces during war
 2389. Recruiting for service against United States
 2390. Enlistment to serve against United States

If they are not being charged with any of those things it isn't because of the constitution.
