So, they looked into Flynn, and asked other agencies for any derogatory information they have on him. (Gosh, do you think that information might also be useful to a political campaign?) They didn't actually get any, so the investigation was closed... except:
So Strzok ordered that the investigation stay open, stating that "the 7th floor" was involved. The top level of the FBI -- meaning Comey, McCabe, etc -- have offices on the 7th floor. That was January 4th. What happened on January 5th?
So, the day after Strzok frantically blocks the field office from closing the investigation into Flynn, Comey goes to a White House meeting (including Susan Rice, Sally Yates, Biden, and Obama himself) where Obama says not to tell the incoming team about classified information. Rice stresses he said to conduct this by the book, but that language is an obvious attempt to ass-cover exactly the opposite.
And shortly after that, we get the laughable Logan Act pretext and an interview with Flynn (by Comey's own admission NOT conducted by the book) which led to him being fired under false pretenses and eventually coerced into a guilty plea.
We no longer need to ask what Obama knew and when he knew it. We know.
