The president tried to intimidate, but everyone just laughed.
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2017

For starters, the owns were savage.

“SEE YOU IN COURT”
“Ok cool, that is where we work, so it is very convenient for us”

You do not intimidate judges, or public lawyers, by saying “See You In Court”.
That is their natural habitat.
That is where they have power.
