Prosecutors and federal agents are entrusted with broad and largely unchecked authority to conduct most aspects of their investigations. For example, they serve grand jury subpoenas that compel the production of evidence and witness testimony. They can conduct physical surveillance of subjects and even introduce undercover agents and confidential informants to them in order to build prosecutions.

And yet, hidden within the body of the order lay something that might make this sweeping and ambitious order flop.
