'SNL': Robert De Niro plays Robert Mueller grilling Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen

The Saturday Night Live cold open is once again keeping on top of the Donald Trump headlines that have been infecting the news cycle since his inauguration - but this time Alec Baldwin is taking a break as POTUS.

Ben Stiller's Michael Cohen got the grilling of his life via lie detector administered by special counsel Robert Mueller played by Robert De Niro in cameos that thrilled the audience on "Saturday Night Live's" cold open.

In fact, the show went so far as to loosely recreate a classic interrogation scene from the cult comedy, as Mueller hooked Cohen up to a polygraph and conducted a lie-detector test. "Looking for something Mr. Cohen?"

"Dead man walking", De Niro's Mueller replies.

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

Reports after the raid indicate that Cohen may have routinely made recordings of phone conversations-including of conversations with Stormy Daniels former lawyer. "Did you say milk?" De Niro asks. "Just kidding!"

"Yeah, like with a cow, or a goat. or a cat", Stiller responded.

"Really? I have nipples". "You know how much evidence I have in my office?"

He reveals that Trump's code name used to be "Putin's little b***h", but has since been changed to "Stormy's little b****".

Not trying to hide what this sketch was trying to do, Mueller says, "We're gonna catch all you little fockers!"
