Pro-Juan Guaido protesters squared off in Washington with activists from the group Codepink in front of the Venezuelan Embassy.
The CodePink protesters have camped out at the closed embassy for more than two weeks, accusing the U.S. of trying to orchestrate a coup in Venezuela.
Maduro closed the embassy in January and recalled his country's diplomats after the U.S. recognized opposition leader Juan Guaido as interim president.
The U.S. and about 50 other nations view Maduro's re-election last year as illegitimate.
The U.S. envoy for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, said the CodePink protesters are breaking the law and will have to leave.
