Professor Sujit Choudhry wrote an anthology entitled “Constitutional Democracies in Crisis?” In his publication Sujit discussed a posted tweet by former Attorney General, Eric Holder. In Holder’s tweet he wrote about the potential firing of Robert Mueller, the White House Special Counsel. For more of his published works, check works.bepress.com.
Mr. Holder mentioned that if President Donald Trump, does fire Attorney Mueller, he feels that this action will lead to a nationwide peaceful demonstration. Sujit Choudhry discusses Mr. Holder’s beliefs which he addresses as follows:
- Government officials have crossed the line and is abusing their authority when they mention that the public could cause an uprising.
- Discusses Eric Holder’s suggestion that the American people have a direct impact on the outcome or reversal of decisions on certain controversial actions.
In his book Professor Sujit Choudhry goes through lengths to discuss the political climate in America. He highlights various news-worthy situations that supports what he views as the separation of constitutional democracy, like the POTUS which is acting in an arbitrary role.
It is Professor Choudhry’s opine that the threat to democracy has evolved over the years. Sujit states this type of verbal action is a Cold War term called “backsliding” either democratic or authoritarian which was part of the old Central Europe degradation of democracy.
Additional comments by Choudhry involved President Trump’s travel ban which he believes is based on unconstitutional principles. Concluding much of his democratic treatise, Professor Choudhry cites that constitutional and democratic matters can be settled through ‘political mobilization.’ This term stands for the ruling class attempting to mobilize the people to question the legitimacy of certain social and political matters
