Media misses the point of of collection of data and disseminating that data about Trump transition

Here’s Why Nunes’ Obama Spying Revelations Are Such A Big Deal

House Intel Chief Devin Nunes revealed Obama's intelligence agencies may have been improperly spreading significant information about Trump's transition.

...
1) Information was collected on the Trump team by Obama administration agencies.
2) This information had no reason to be shared in intelligence reports to Obama officials.
3) Obama officials may have flouted legally required attempts to minimize and mask personal identifying information.
4) This had nothing to do with Russia.
...
When an administration is spreading around reports of political and personal discussions, failing to mask that information, and the information itself isn’t of foreign intelligence value, you have the makings of a huge scandal.
...
There is much more.

The Democrats and their media cohorts do not seem to grasp what a scandal this is that intelligence agencies were using their resources to essentially collect and disseminate data on a political rival.  That is a scandal and it has nothing to do with an investigation of Russian election activities.
