We'll drag Microsoft in front of Supremes over Irish email spat – DoJ

Hypothetical case:

${US Co} contracts with ${NonUS Co} for data center and storage service located physically outside the US (the two companies being unrelated) but retains full operational control of the servers and storage. ${US Co} then offers for sale email and data processing storage services to US customers, guaranteeing that all processing and storage will be offshore.

Where does the US government go for assistance when they find a US-based (alleged) criminal enterprise is using ${US Co}'s service for its email and data processing needs? Stipulating that ${NonUS Co} cannot assist under a MLAT, should ${US Co} be immune from executing an otherwise proper warrant for data related to operation of the alleged criminal enterprise?
