Andrew McCarthy, writing in the New York Post is absolutely right about this.

There is no doubt that the Obama administration spied on the Trump campaign. As Barr made clear, the real question is: What predicated the spying? Was there a valid reason for it, strong enough to overcome our norm against political spying? Or was it done rashly? Was a politically motivated decision made to use highly intrusive investigative tactics when a more measured response would have sufficed, such as a “defensive briefing” that would have warned the Trump campaign of possible Russian infiltration?
He misses the larger issue.
The malAdministration of the faithless feckless former President used those same tools on all of their political opponents.
