Robert De Niro's Robert Mueller Grills Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen

Robert De Niro, Ben Stiller star in SNL skit featuring Trump lawyer Michael Cohen

Instead, the opening had a clever take on the recent Michael Cohen FBI raid that happened earlier week with Ben Stiller as Trump's lawyer and an equally surprising appearance of Robert De Niro doing his impression of the attorney du jour Robert Mueller.

Stiller's Cohen has lots to hide. "If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry", De Niro accused the satirical Cohen, before asking, "how did you like that "pee pee" tape?". "Did you say milk?" "We'll get to that later".

Mueller later asked Cohen if he has directly threatened people on behalf of POTUS, to which Cohen replied, "Directly? No".

"Ish", says Stiller. As for threatening people as part of his work, "Cohen" admits: "Let's just say I cut a lot of letters out of a lot of magazines". Obviously, Jeff Sessions (the always-funny Kate McKinnon) and Mike Pence (Beck Bennet) are planning for Cohen to be the fall-guy in this Russian Federation investigation, so Stiller was put in the hot seat by De Niro who played a strong-jawed, rough-edged Mueller in a hilarious nod to Meet The Parents.

"Did you say milk?" asks Mueller. "You can milk anything with nipples", the satirical Cohen answered. The two then discussed code names given to members of the president's family, including Trump's as "Stormy's little b*tch" and Ivanka Trump's as the president's "girlfriend". Among Mueller's line of questioning: "Did you make a payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels?" and "Did Donald Trump know about it?" Eric and Donald Trump Jr. are referred to as the "two Fredos", and Cohen is "dead man walking".
