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

Robert Mueller tests the truthfulness of Michael Cohen on

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.

This week's Saturday Night Live cold open had two major cameos, with Ben Stiller playing President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen and Robert De Niro playing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Donald Trump had a wild week, beginning with the raid of the offices and residences of his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, which the president called "a war on our country".

Stiller, as Cohen, tried desperately to wiggle his way out of a lie detector test, fearing he would inadvertently reveal that his boss knew about the hush money.

"Michael Cohen, attorney at law - and sometimes not at law", he introduced himself.

Cohen is slated to appear in federal court Monday.

Sergey Lavrov could speak on Syria at press conference
The US and its allies ignored the facts presented by the Syrian government and the Russian side, which proved that the suspected chemical incident was staged, the Foreign Ministry added.

The April 14 edition of "Saturday Night Live" kicked off with a cold open that once again took aim [VIDEO] at the Donald Trump administration.

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

"So you've threatened people", Mueller asked. "I have an entire hard drive that's just labeled 'yikes!'"

"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.

"It's a disgrace! This whole raid was a violation of attorney-criminal privilege", Cohen says.

Mueller served Cohen a slice of the harsh reality waiting for him and the rest of Trump's supporters. "You broke the law, and now we're going to catch all of you little Fockers, you got that?"
