Based on the subpoena, the gag order, and the explanation for its issuance, I would say that the prosecutor (AUSA) had a sound basis for seeking it. He is likely to come before that judge in the future, and appearing solicitous of that judge's feelings should help him obtain more favorable rulings in close cases.


There should at least be some consequences for the prosecutor when they "investigate" hyperbole so obvious that no one with a high school education could possibly consider it a true threat. Otherwise the job of prosecutor becomes an unlimited license to terrorize people who've done nothing wrong or illegal.
