Oh puhleaseeee

A federal court judge is an appointed position which means a politician must appoint and approve or recommend you. That means "deals" and favors. Also they might not be alot of direct collusion but in a appointed position in career job you don't think they're siding with the government. There's alot of implied and wink wink behavior in any federal or even local appointed government bureaucrat job.
