Robert DeNiro's Mueller Scorches 'Focker' Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller) On 'SNL'

Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro faced off during the "Saturday Night Live" cold open to get to the bottom of President Trump's role in an alleged $130,000 payout to porn star Stormy Daniels. "Do you know how much evidence I have in my office?"

"I'll start with some easy ones", De Niro's Mueller said.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, a surprise cameo by De Niro, ambushed Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, in a stark interrogation room - a gag that quickly mirrored a scene from "Meet the Parents" - following the FBI's raid on his home and office. Moments later, Robert De Niro stepped out (with some pretty fantastic facial prosthetics) as Mueller, who strapped Stiller into the lie detector for an wonderful re-creation of one of the most memorable scenes from their blockbuster 2000 comedy Meet the Parents.

Vladimir Putin said the strikes were an "act of aggression" that would have a "destructive" influence on worldwide relations. Russia's Foreign Ministry says the attack was an attempt to derail an investigation into a purported chemical attack.

Later in the skit, De Niro's Mueller also reveals his codenames for Trump and his team. Robert De Niro fired back, once again referencing "Meet the Parents". "I have an entire hard drive that's just labeled 'yikes!'" He also called Trump the "smartest, kindest, sexiest, least colluding man" on the planet. "I was just tryin' to milk some information outta people".

Saturday Night Live got it all into the sketch-along with some classic lines.

"Yeah, like with a cow, or a goat. You can milk anything with nipples", the satirical Cohen answered.

"You can milk anything with nipples", Cohen said. 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".

Fitting in one last reference to the beloved comedy, Mueller promised Cohen, "We're gonna catch all you little fockers".
