Trump praises 'bombshell' report on 'unmasking'

"Fox and Friends" host Steve Doocy on Monday morning highlighted the network's "bombshell report about the unmasking of the Trump team".

"We've learned that the surveillance that led to the unmasking of what started way before President Trump was even the GOP nominee", reported Adam Housley.

Several sources said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, California Republican, knows who is responsible for the disclosure of classified names, Fox News reported.

The report claims House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, who is leading the investigation into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election, knows who is responsible.

"The main issue in this case, is not only the unmasking of these names of private citizens, but the spreading of these names for political purposes that have nothing to do with national security or an investigation into Russia's interference in the USA election", a congressional source commented.

Trump has repeated an unverified claim that his campaign headquarters was wiretapped by former President Barack Obama, a claim that officials on both sides of the aisle have said there is no evidence to support.

"We heard germs of it, that it was beginning to take root during Friday's show. 'Spied on before nomination.' The real story", he posted at 6:15 a.m. Some unmasked not associated with Russian Federation.

President Trump insisted that he had reason to believe his allegations were true, and several former intelligence officials spoke out in his defense.

Next, Trump lashed out at former Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, whose brother Trump alleges got paid "big money" to lobby against sanctions against Russian Federation.

There have been conflicts between presidents, presidential candidates, and US intelligence agencies, but Americans have arguably never seen the kind of ongoing acrimony between Donald Trump and intelligence professionals.

Nunes came under fire for alleged closeness to the Trump team, particularly when it emerged that White House officials colluded with him during his investigation into the alleged surveillance.
