De Niro's Mueller then enters the room to thank him for "all the help with the investigation." Mueller tells Sessions he helped with his report “more than you’ll ever know." 


“Am I in the report?” Sessions asks.

“A little bit,” Mueller responds.

“OK, what about the president?” Sessions adds.

“A lot of bit,” Mueller said. 

De Niro's Mueller then hands Sessions a piece of toilet paper from the bottom of Trump's shoe, likening it to a piece of clothing that makes an elf free in the "Harry Potter" series. 

The two then embrace as Sessions suggests Mueller might miss him, given acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker's past comments showing a desire to curb the special counsel's investigation.

Sessions, a frequent target for mockery on "SNL," was fired last week. Trump had been openly critical of the former Alabama senator, particularly over his decision to recuse himself from overseeing Mueller's investigation.

He appointed Whitaker as acting attorney general, a move that drew criticism from Democrats and legal experts who suggested it was unconstitutional. Whitaker has written opinion columns for The Hill and CNN advocating for curbing the scope of the Mueller investigation, and suggesting stifling its funding.
