The All Writs Act. A distant statute that aguably allows the government whatever some judge chooses to allow.

Ars Technica reporting. With links.

This link, the statutory text, sure reads as if open season is declared on governmental abuse and overreaching.

Reader reflection on how the words "necessary or appropriate" may be limited in scope may prove informative.

Would your federal lawyers ask for it, if "inappropriate?" Would your federal judges issue an "inappropriate" writ?

A "trust me" statute if ever there was one.
