US Citizens: "...and EQUAL JUSTICE under the law." Where did that portion of a quote originate?

WHY was it written?

WHY is it so important to apply it, in chronological order, to the following people: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, and Donald Trump?

And WHERE can such equal justice be found today?

In case you had trouble finding it:

“Equal Justice Under Law”. It is a slogan engraved over our United States Supreme Court, taken from our 14th Amendment, which states: “no State can deprive particular persons or classes of persons of equal and impartial justice under the law.” It stands for the principle that our legal system–and the judges and juries in it–is required to apply the law with impartiality. While many assume that this is merely meant to prevent favoritism of the rich and powerful, this is not true. It applies equally to prevent preferential treatment of the poor and seemingly downtrodden. In other words, justice is particular, not class-based, requiring a decision on the merits of each particular case."
