it's going to be another busy week in washington with investigations continuing on russian interference in the election. and a senate showdown brewing over president trump's pick for the supreme court. mr. trump weighed in on some of the hot topics sunday on twitter. here's errol barnett. >> reporter: president trump began his day by reminding supporters he still plans to repeal obamacare. despite being defeated the first time around. he tweeted that talks will continue until a deal is hopefully struck. meanwhile, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell predicted a win for the president when his supreme court nominee faces senate confirmation. >> neil gorsuch will be confirmed this week. how that happens really depends on our democrats. >> reporter: democrats are in no mood to cooperate and may which could delay it
3:11 am
indefinitely. to maneuver around that, mcconnell would need to permanently change senate rules, a so-called nuclear option the president supports. >> look, when a nominee doesn't get 60 votes, you shouldn't change the rules. you should change the nominee. >> reporter: the senate is also gearing up for closed-door interviews with witnesses in its investigation into russian election interference. >> no. >> reporter: president putin this week denied playing any role. and today the kremlin spokesman said there's no proof. >> any blamings that russia could have been interfering in domestic affairs of the united states is slander. and it has no, no evidence at all. >> reporter: republican john cornyn of the senate judiciary committee disagrees. >> we want to understand the extent to which russia has attempted to nfluence and interfere in our elections and to undermine our democracy.
3:12 am
>> reporter: president trump today tweeted the real story turns out to be surveillance and leaking. find the leakers. the ranking democrat on the house intelligence committee, adam schiff sees behavior from the white house as suspicious. >> whenever they see the president use the word "fake", it ought to set off alarm bells. the question is of course why. and the answer to the question is this effort to point the congress another directions. >> reporter: today president trump played golf while discussing health care with senator rand paul. monday, mr. trump will host egypt's president at the white house. and later this week, mr. trump hosts china's president at his mar-a-lago resort in florida. they are expected to discuss north korean nuclear threats. thanks, errol. on face the nation, john cornyn said the intelligence community hasn't decided whether to grant immunity to michael flynn, the president's former national security adviser. he asked for immunity late last week and president trump said i
3:13 am
supported that request. let's bring in our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation." it was interesting that the president encouraged flynn to seek immunity. how should we interpret that? >> the president's critics see this as much more smoke, what they hope is the fire that connects the president's team or the president himself with the russian efforts to influence the election. another way to look at this, though, is in a highly partisan environment where there are two congressional investigations and a fbi investigation that mr. flynn may have exposure in some way based on his other business dealings, which we're still whi limit his exposure, his smart lawyer is trying to get a deal and that it's basically, has more to do with the exposure that general flynn has than the exciting quality of what he may have to say.
3:14 am
>> i want to turn now to the supreme court, john, before you go. the main senator, angus king who is considered a swing vote says he hasn't decided how he'll vote. what are you watching for as we get closer to vote this week? >> i think what we're watching for is basically whether the senate democrats to avoid having to invoke the so-called nuclear option, which is to say changing the senate rules to make it so neil gorsuch could be confirmed with a simple majority rather than clearing the 60-vote in a filibuster. they don't change the rules often, and this would be a big one, given what senator mcconnell and cornyn have said about changing the rules like this. they both said it would hurt the institution. so it would be a big deal. it looks like that's where we're headed.
3:15 am
and it's another sign in a partisan age your we thought we'd gotten partisan in every possible way, this will be a new way, and you can't go back once you do it. >> john dickerson, thank you. the "cbs overnight news" will be right back.
