    The U. S. Constitution creates an independent judiciary.

    Explanation:

    For reliable protection of society from the danger of tyranny, power had to be distributed among the branches of government.

    The fundamental principle of the Constitution is the principle of separation of powers. It presupposes the organizational independence of the three branches of state power - legislative, executive, judicial and the delineation of functions between them. Power should be divided between different state bodies in such a way that they mutually control and restrain each other. As a result, each of the main authorities received significant independence.

    The US Constitution does not contain any general, declarative article that would fix the theory of separation of powers as a fundamental principle of building a state. At the same time, Art. 2 (Division 1) and Art. Section 3 (Division 1) indicates that there are executive and judicial powers in the United States.
