      The judiciary serves those who wield power.  There are, rarely, exceptions, and there is a continuing need to maintain an illusion of independence, democracy, checks and balances, and all of that "quaint" stuff.

      But leaving aside that most sitting federal judges at all levels were appointed by Pug presidents to positions with great prestige, nice salaries, and LIFE TENURE, even the Democrats on the bench recognize that the rule of law while not a complete fiction does not apply to everyone alike.
