Not a matter of “liking”. No more than liking Woodward and Bernstein when we found out what was going on in the Nixon White House. Government exists through the consent of the governed and a lot of folks are now uncertain about what we’ve been consenting to.

Soldiers are required to follow LAWFUL orders. I no more want civil servants performing illegal acts against American citizens in violation of the Constitution than I want soldiers committing murder and mayhem under the theory of “I was only following orders”.

Like Snowden said, consent of the governed is not consent if the governed are intentionally mis-informed by the governing.
