DONALD Trump has claimed that his children Don Jr, Ivanka and Eric were "unmasked" in mystery US intel reports on his Inauguration Day.
The president complained about the unmasking during a senate lunch on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, according to a New York Times reporter.
The journalist reported that Trump said that his three eldest children had been unmasked.
His comments followed Senator Lindsey Graham's request to acting director of national intelligence Richard Grenell and Attorney General William Bar for any inquiries made by Obama administration officials that would have unmasked key players in Trump's winning 2016 election campaign.
The list includes Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Corey Lewandowski, Paul Manafort, Stephen Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Sam Clovis, Chris Christie, Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, according to The Washington Post.
All three children on the list featured in Trump's presidential campaign.
Last week uproar began as declassified information emerged surrounding which officials had "unmasked" General Michael Flynn, who was Trump's first national security advisor before he was removed from the role.
Due to this, Graham wrote: "Given the extensive number of requests for the unmasking of General Flynn’s name during this short time period, it raises the question of whether these or other officials sought the unmasking of the identities of other individuals associated with the Trump campaign or transition team."
The president has taken to generalizing such acts by the Obama administration as "Obamagate," but he has declined to expand further about what this means.
Trump took aim at the previous administration on Thursday, calling on lawmakers to question Obama in what he calls the biggest hoax in history.
He tweeted on Thursday that Graham should call Obama to testify, stating: "Do it @LindseyGrahamSC, just do it. No more Mr. Nice Guy. No more talk!"
However, Graham has said he will not follow Trump's calls to have the former president testify as part of a wide-ranging inquiry into the Russia investigation.
Referring to Trump's calls that Obama should testify, Graham said: "We have the former president suggesting the current president is destroying the rule of law by dismissing a case against Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
"All of this is occurring during a major pandemic."
