Investigative journalist Paul Sperry is reporting that the affiant who swore to the Mar a Lago search warrant appears to have made a critical factual error when stating that no spaces within the premises had been authorized for storage of classified information.

Paul Sperry:

BREAKING: The FBI affiant who swore to the Mar-a-Lago search warrant appears to have made a critical factual error by stating in the unsealed affidavit: “I do not believe that any spaces within the PREMISES have been authorized for the storage of classified information.” This finding, which is the linchpin of the criminal case vs. Trump, overlooks the fact that:

1) White House records confirm that a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) authorizing the briefing and storage of classified material up to the TS/SCI level had in fact been installed at Mar-a-Lago; and,

2) records show that the Secret Serice had recently awarded a nearly $600,000 contract to upgrade physical security within the premises at Mar-a-Lago for Trump’s post-presidency transition.

Sperry also tweeted that the affidavit contains several “oddities”:

DEVELOPING: The unsealed FBI affidavit contains several oddities: 1. Nowhere does it flat-out say “classified information: was found in Trump’s 15 boxes. On page 2, it refers only to docs “with classification markings,” which raises the specter they were no longer classified 2. It states the docs “appear” to contain National Defense Information. But agents “triaged” the boxes; they would know if they contained NDI or not 3. The affiant claimed, “there is probable cause to believe evidence of obstruction will be found at the premises,” yet there’s no “obstruction” header or section spelling out why he believes this 4. He said he doesn’t believe “any spaces” w/in Mar-a-Lago are “currently” authorized for storage of classified info. So they were, but not “currently”?

According to Breitbart, Sperry told them that his Twitter account has been permanently suspended since shortly after he posted the viral tweet, with no warning, no explanation and no reason given.

He said the suspension happened not long after a tweet of his on August 9 at 12:13 p.m. EST went viral that said:
