The incident took place on Wednesday around around 2:30 p.m., according to the National Archives, and the building is expected to be open normally Thursday. Video from the incident posted on the X social media platform shows two men covered in reddish-pink powder standing in front of the equally splattered horizontal glass case that houses the Constitution.
