President Trump in another tweet focused on surveillance praised an "amazing" report on Fox News related to the unmasking of his campaign aides.

"Such amazing reporting on unmasking and the crooked scheme against us by @foxandfriends," the president said early Monday morning.

"'Spied on before nomination.' The real story."

The president's tweet followed a report on Fox News promoted as a "bombshell."

According to that report, the intelligence official who unmasked the names of private citizens associated with the Trump campaign was "well-known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world."

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) is aware of who is responsible, according to the report.

“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 U.S. election,” a congressional source close to the investigation told Fox News. 

On Sunday, the president tweeted the "real story turns out to be SURVEILLANCE and LEAKING!"
 
"Find the leakers," he tweeted.
