No, trump knew exactly what obamagate was supposed to be (he's been planning at least since he got caught trying to bribe ukraine). But it's a critical part of any scam to act like everyone should already know about it. That's all the faked refusal to clarify was about..

Odd since Flynn lied to the FBI on his own, twice, and Trump, who usually keeps loyalists around, and merely fires whistleblowers, fired Flynn. It'll be interesting to see this one blow up in Trump's face. He's called it the greatest political crime in American history, bigger than Watergate. So, it will be fun.
An FBI memo about the Flynn interview in which he is charged with lying to the FBI says that the point of the interview was to get him to lie or fired. Plus lying to the FBI is only a crime if it is material to an ongoing criminal investigation. Flynn had also been cleared by the FBI of any wrongdoing a few weeks before the meeting. Thereby making the meeting a form of entrapment.
The note was written by Bill Priestap, the then-counterintelligence director at the FBI, who asked what the goal was for the Flynn interview, how it should be approached. For any policing organization that's standard procedure. That's not entrapment. Either he lies or he doesn't. Additional FBI notes show discussions on whether to warn Flynn of the consequences of lying. That Trump fired Flynn for lying to Pence was Trump's decision.
As a policing organization the purpose of an interview shouldn't be to get the subject to lie or be fired. It should be to figure out the truth or to elicit a confession. This was a gross abuse of their authority and it looks like it was done at the direction of the Obama White House. The question becomes how high up does it go.
I think incels need to see a mental health professional not be killed. There's still hope that they can change back to a normal human being.
