Mueller’s report gets layers of interpretation on ‘SNL’ cold open

"What I was really targeted for by the Mueller team and these individuals had nothing to do with Russian Federation; it had to do with my work in Israel and my work as an energy lobbyist", he said.

Baldwin's Trump simply sounded an airhorn in excitement. The longer it takes to release the full findings from Mueller, the more Democrats, in particular, warn they will question the legitimacy of Barr's actions.

While De Niro's Mueller hasn't drawn any conclusions about whether or not Trump obstructed justice, Bryant's Barr happily declares him "clean as a whistle".

Added Bryant's Barr: "Most of it provided on live television by the president himself".

"Russia, if you're watching, go to bed".

Then De Niro's Mueller reminded everyone that there are still ongoing investigations.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity, Baldwin also mocked Puerto Rico. "That's right. I want my paper towels back, amigos", said Trump.

We'll have to see if this was De Niro's last appearance on the show as Mueller, now that the report has wrapped up in real life. He declared that all words in "Mueller's" report will be blacked out except for the words "no" and "collusion". "So you know, I think there were a couple of people that did good reporting, and I don't mean you know conservative reporters", Trump Jr. continued.

"Did someone say devil?"

That's when Kate McKinnon's Rudy Giuliani popped up.

"Vengeance will be mine", added Baldwin's Trump.

"I guess my legal strategy worked", Giuliani said.

"We looked forward to the report so much", said Cecily Strong's Putin adviser.

But Bryant shook her head, and countered him by insisting majority are "very good people".
