SNL brought in Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller to play Robert Mueller and Michael Cohen

President Donald Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen (Ben Stiller), is questioned by Robert Mueller (Robert De Niro) on SNL.

Actors Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live as Special Counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump's embattled personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, for a Meet the Parents-style interrogation.

After a chat with Attorney General Jeff Sessions (Kate McKinnon) and Vice President Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), the hapless Cohen meets Mueller for a surprise lie detector test. "I'll start with some easy ones," Mueller begins. "How'd you like that pee-pee tape?"

As the interrogation proceeds, it swerves between references to real life and the Meet the Parents franchise. And in either context, DeNiro's Mueller makes clear, he is prepared to "catch all you little Fockers." Watch the full sketch below. Bonnie Kristian
