Police said that they had no video showing him coming onto the campus and do not know how long he was there.
Broeksmit was subpoenaed by the House Intelligence Committee during its probe into Trump and Deutsche Bank.
He reportedly offered hundreds of documents to federal investigators and journalists who were looking for ties between the bank and Trump.

The documents were left behind by Broeksmit’s late father, Bill, who was a senior executive at the bank.
“I am more emotionally invested in this than anyone in the world,” Broeksmit told the New York Times while explaining why he handed over the information.
“I would love to be their special informer.”
The 45-year-old was reported missing last year and was last seen driving a red Mini Cooper on April 6 2021.

Despite going missing, his Twitter remained active and friends and journalists claimed to stay in contact with him during his disappearance.
In his bio, he dubbed himself as a self-proclaimed “Character Assassination Survivor.”
Forensic News investigative journalist Scott Stedman claimed that he last spoke to Broeksmit in January.
He explained that Broeksmit had given him “Deutsche Bank documents that highlighted the bank’s deep Russia connections.”
“It is very sad,” he added. “I don’t suspect foul play. Val struggled with drugs on and off. Waiting on further info.”
