"Saturday Night Live" ripped into the recent indictments in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Donald Trump's election campaign and the Russian government. In the sketch, Alec Baldwin's Trump goes to visit his former campaign manager Paul Manafort, who was charged with conspiracy against the United States last week - among other charges.

Manafort, played by Alex Moffat, is clearly startled to see Trump, who is supposed to be in Asia and declares, “Whatever happens sir, I won’t betray you.”

“I brought you to the shower to make sure you weren’t wearing a wire, Paul,” Baldwin’s Trump explains. “That’s why we’re going to do this ‘Gone Girl’ style.”

"I'm wearing a bathing costume that I got from my favorite place: the 1890s," Kate McKinnon's Jeff Sessions says. "I thought we should all get used to wearing stripes."

"What an idiot that Harvey Weinstein is," commented Baldwin's Trump. "He could have gotten away with all of it, if only he was elected president."
