The cold open switched between parodies of U.S. President Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin, Mueller, played by Robert De Niro, and Attorney General William Barr, played by Aidy Bryant.

“We have not drawn a definitive conclusion,” Mueller wrote.

Mueller said there will be few redactions, while Barr said there would be some redactions, while Trump said “complete blackout everything but ‘no’ and ‘collusion.'”

Rudy Giuliani appeared briefly as well, with Kate McKinnon reprising the role, explaining that his “mind games worked.”

Trump assures that his victory is the only thing he will talk about for the next four years.
