Top secret SCI documents are tracked very well

There is no question that there is complete documentation on each of the TS/SCI documents taken by the FBI indicating whoever accessed them, where, and when. This will absolutely show who in the White House last accessed them before tfg took them out. Also as a matter of procedure the documents would not be laying about in the White House but rather they would be stored in specially secure facilities.

I know this because I had that kind of clearance at one time.

was proper protocol always followed? Couldn’t they have just tweaked the process or abandoned procedure completely and done whatever the hell best served their purposes, no questions asked?

4. SCIFs are always manned if open, the certified custodian is the only one that can open the SCIF.

You can't just grab some keys and get in after hours.
I suspect the White House has one that is manned 24/7.
Either he got a cult member to agree to risk everything to become a trusted agent and still let his minions take classified materials out while cult member waived them in and out, or they figured out how to distract a weak minded SCIF watch while papers were smuggled out.

5. Probably both, though I lean toward the first option.

You know they had to make more than one or two trips. With that many boxes traipsing out, how did no one notice that things were going missing?

One does not fuck about with the information contained therein.

It is tracked, safeguarded, and only used by personnel with a need to know basis.

You never, ever, ever, ever, ever take it home with you. That is a career ending mistake that will haunt you for the rest of your days....

That's drilled into your head from Day One in any kind of intelligence-related organization. (Including contractors).

6. But Trump is said to have been in the practice of taking these docs to his private residence.

And they didn't always return or got "misplaced."

So procedure was not being followed.

Look at Reality Winner's circumstances. She was a contractor working in a totally different area when she accessed and printed the document that she turned over the to the press. (Frankly, I don't know how she was able to access something that she had no clearance to see, but that's above my former paygrade.) They had a way of telling who accessed that document and which printer it was printed on.
