Darth Vader when it comes to national security

It's the movie Snowden by Stoned.
At one point, some guy there says to Snowden,
"I mean, FISA judges are all appointed by the Chief Justice,
who's like, you know...Darth Vader when it comes to national security."

Darth Vader seems some guy from Star Wars, but I never seen it.
What is his idea? Chief Justice is some kind of a guardian?

Thank you

    The Chief Justice is the senior member of the US Supreme Court, the members of which are called justices rather than judges.
