After suffering through a long-winded impeachment trial that appears to have been a foregone conclusion, Saturday Night Live brings you the impeachment trial "you wish had happened." The sketch features a nearly unrecognizable Cecily Strong as John Bolton, saying, "No, no, sorry judge. No more free spoilers. But you can pre-order the book now. It's called Harry Potter and the Room Where It Happened." Beck Bennett later appears as Mitch McConnell, saying, "I just want to remind the American people that all men are innocent after proven guilty," while Kate McKinnon reprised her recurring role as Lindsey Graham. New for this episode was Pete Davidson as Hunter Biden, testifying that he serves on "the board of a Brazilian money-laundering company called Nepotismo." JJ Watt guest-hosted an episode that the AV Club calls "lukewarm." (Read more Saturday Night Live stories.)
