His tweet came roughly 10 minutes after the television show aired a segment highlighting a story from Fox reporters Malia Zimmerman and Adam Housley using similar wording.

"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.

On April 3, "Fox and Friends" reporter Adam Housley stated a US intelligence official who is "very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world" revealed the name of Trump's associates, reports the Daily Mail.

Housley added the House Intelligence Committee chairman, Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California, has known about the official since January.

Co-host Steve Doocy, ignoring the unanimous conclusion of all 17 US intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election with the intent to help Donald Trump and to harm Hillary Clinton, and ignoring the statement of FBI Director James Comey that the Bureau is investigating ties between Russian Federation and Trump team officials, told viewers there is "no evidence of the connection between Russian Federation and Trump". "Man, I guess on some level he saw some things that only somebody surveilling his administration would know".

On Sunday, the president tweeted that the 'real story turns out to be SURVEILLANCE and LEAKING!' Known Intel official is responsible. Trump team spied on before he was nominated.

Was the brother of John Podesta paid big money to get the sanctions on Russian Federation lifted?

To be sure, the article didn't say that this change has necessarily happened, but the fact that "officials have expressed an interest in having more raw intelligence sent to the president" - what he'd do with the information is unclear - is not at all a good sign. "Would be sad for U.S.", Trump tweeted.

On Thursday, the New York Times began reporting what they claimed were the identities of two White House officials who were the sources of the information disclosed to Nunes.
