The President of the United States nominates judges for the Supreme Court "by and with the advice and consent of the Senate" (Article 2 of the Constitution).

The President (executive branch) nominates supreme court judges. The Senate (part of the legislative branch) confirms them.

The president (executive branch) nominates judges to the Supreme Court. If the Congress approves the nomination, the nominee becomes a member of the Supreme Court. So, the Supreme Court depends on the executive for its members.
