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.
Fox News host appears confused how phone calls work while doubting impeachment witnesses
On Tuesday's edition of "Fox & Friends," co-host Brian Kilmeade questioned the impeachment testimony of State Department aide David Holmes — and in the process, revealed his confusion about how telephone calls work.
"Now the big thing is, something that's not addressed, nobody else has seen, and no one's really questioned, is that when David Holmes came out and said, I was hanging out in a restaurant, having a bottle of wine, and I listened over, and there's the E.U. ambassador talking to what I think's the president," said Kilmeade. "Amazingly, he heard both sides of the phone call, and at which time Sondland said to the president that Zelensky 'loves your [ass]' ... Now we have not seen Sondland say that's true or not true, and I also find it hard to believe that people just accept that you can hear both sides of a phone call 3,000 or 5,000 miles away. I've never heard both sides of a phone call when you have it to your ear!"
Elise Stefanik shredded by local columnist for selling out to Trump: ‘She’s not one of us’
Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been dubbed a "rising star" by President Donald Trump for her sycophantic defenses of him during the House impeachment inquiry.
But Ken Tingley, a newspaper columnist at the Glens Falls Post Star in upstate New York, believes that her strident defenses of the president will cost her dearly in her district.
In his latest column, Tingley offers a scathing assessment of Stefanik's character by pointing out that she swooped into the district despite not living there after a career that suggested she'd rather be running the Republican National Committee than representing New York's 21st district.
FBI officials are scared to look into Ukraine — because of what Trump did to the ones who investigated Russia: report
According to Yahoo News, the FBI is interested in interviewing the CIA whistleblower whose complaint about President Donald Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine triggered the impeachment inquiry — but at least some FBI agents are frightened of getting involved because of how the president declared partisan political war on the agents who investigated his campaign's contacts with Russia.
One former senior FBI official said that while many agents were eager to pursue this evidence, others "didn’t want to touch [the whistleblower complaint] with a 10-foot pole because of the Russia investigation."
