Academy Award-winning actor Robert DeNiro returned to “Saturday Night Live” to portray former special counsel Robert Mueller.
The show’s cold opening sketch also featured Alec Baldwin portraying President Donald Trump.
The skit ridiculed how Attorney General Bill Barr attempted to spin Mueller’s report, which was further spin by Trump to the point he claimed total vindication.
“I am submitting these 380 pages,” Mueller’s character began.
“I am writing almost four pages,” Barr’s character responded.
“I am reading zero pages,” Trump’s character added. “But Sean Hannity has read it and he’s so excited, he texted me an eggplant.”
The skit continued as the topics of Russian collusion and obstruction of justice
“In conclusion, it is my hope this report will be made public with a few redactions,” Mueller’s character said.
“Hello, redactions!” Barr replied.
“We’re going to block out everything except the words no and collusion,” Trump’s character said.
“P.S. can’t wait to see what the Southern District of New York has in store for Trump,” De Niro added.

Trump busted for doubling down on his racist rants before Mueller speaks: ‘He’s scared’
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," a former adviser to Bill Clinton said that he expects ex-special counsel Robert Mueller to make a some blunt statements about President Donald Trump in his upcoming appearance before a Congressional committee that will cause voters to turn on the president.
According to Guy Smith, who advised former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment ordeal, Mueller's own words will carry tremendous weight with voters who have no idea what is in his report on the president.
"Well, what we're going to see is people who have never read the report, which is most everybody, and they have only heard President Trump and the attorney general say he's been exonerated. It does not," he told host Christi Paul. "So, what's going to happen is that they're going to be hearing Robert Mueller in his own words say that the president obstructed justice. The American people have not read this thing."
