The cold open begins with Jeff Sessions and Mike Pence at the Department of Justice, talking about how the raid is the latest bit of bad news for the Trump Administration.

Stiller's Cohen was anxious about his impending interrogation with Mueller, reacting to the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids of his home and office.

"If you're innocent, you have nothing to worry about", De Niro's Mueller says as he straps Stiller's Cohen to a lie detector.

"Let's just say I've cut a lot of letters out of a lot of magazines".

He goes on praising Trump with adjectives like "smartest, kindest, sexiest, least colluding man" before Sessions and Pence send him to see someone down the hall. 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.

"I'll start with some easy ones: Did ya like the pee pee tape?"

When Donald Trump first kicked off his campaign for president, it didn't take long before he became headline news [VIDEO]on an nearly daily basis.

The moment Cohen says no, the polygraph starts going insane over the lie.

"It was supposed to be a surprise for Stormy, like a gift", said Cohen, obviously rattled by the inquiry.

"Really, I have nipples, can you milk me Mr. Cohen?"

Trump's codename apparently used to be "Putin's little b-h", but is now "Stormy's little b-h".

Later in the skit, De Niro's Mueller also reveals his codenames for Trump and his team.

The show was hosted by comedian and former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney with Jack White as musical guest.
