"Meet the Parents" actors Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this week to parody the 2000 film as special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russia probe MORE and President TrumpDonald John Trump20 weeks out from midterms, Dems and GOP brace for surprises Sessions responds to Nazi comparisons: 'They were keeping the Jews from leaving' Kim Jong Un to visit Beijing this week MORE's personal lawyer Michael Cohen.

The two parodied the famous lie-detector scene from the film, but with De Niro's Mueller questioning Stiller's Cohen about Trump, Russia and his $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels.  

“I’ll start with some easy ones,” De Niro's Mueller says. “How’d you like that pee-pee tape?”

De Niro went on to ask Stiller if he had ever threatened people to stay quiet about information. 

“Directly? No. But let’s just say I’ve cut a lot of letters out of a lot of magazines," Stiller's Cohen responds.

Later in the skit, De Niro's Mueller also reveals his codenames for Trump and his team, saying Trump's old codename was "Putin's little bitch" but was recently changed to "Stormy's little bitch," Trump's daughter Ivanka TrumpIvana (Ivanka) Marie TrumpPress: Drain the swamp – of Scott Pruitt The Hill's Morning Report — Sponsored by PhRMA — Outcry raises pressure on GOP for immigration fix Maher: North Korea summit was a ‘feckless stunt’ MORE is codenamed "girlfriend," and Cohen is codenamed "dead man walking."

The cold open started with Stiller's Cohen nervously telling Kate McKinnon's Attorney General Jeff SessionsJefferson (Jeff) Beauregard SessionsSessions responds to Nazi comparisons: 'They were keeping the Jews from leaving' Laura Ingraham: Migrant child detention centers 'essentially summer camps' Senate chaplain offers prayer 'as children are being separated from their parents' MORE and Beck Bennett's Vice President Pence that he had tons of evidence on Trump in his office at the time of last week's FBI raid.

“I got a whole hard drive that’s just labeled ‘Yikes,' ” he said.


Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the most senior official at the Justice Department who is overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation, is said to have signed off on the warrant request on the raid of Cohen's office earlier this week. 

Cohen is suspected of possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations related, at least in part, to his payment of $130,000 to Daniels days before the 2016 presidential election. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims to have had an affair with Trump in 2006.
