A Glimpse Inside Sujit Choudhry’s New Publications

Sujit Choudhry, during his career, has been the dean of a university, a lawyer, and an adviser to developing countries (blogs.law.nyu.edu). He has also served in much smaller, but still important roles like serving as Law Clerk to Antonio Lamer, a Supreme Court Justice in Canada. In addition to serving as dean, Choudhry taught the students personally at the New York University, educating them in the field of law.  Choudhry has also edited and contributed to several textbooks on the subject of law.

Choudhry is well-rounded, even an expert in many areas. He is knowledgeable in democratic policy, constitutional design, secession, and transitioning from a less desirable government to a democracy (constitutionaltransitions.org)

Earlier this year a book featuring Choudhry was released concerning the modern strength of democratic governments. In particular, Choudhry’s chapter discussed a tweet from Eric Holder published in late 2017, check releasefact.com. The tweet managed to spark a lot of controversy for its vagueness and ambiguity. In his own chapter of Constitutional Democracies in Crisis?, Sujit Choudhry dismantles Eric Holder’s tweet, diving inside Holder’s mind and sharing his own ideas about Holder’s intention.

The tweet was suggestive in concerns to Trump’s authoritarian persona, calling on civil action should Trump overreach. Eric Holder lashed out at Trump, calling any attempt to dismantle or disrupt Robert Mueller’s investigation would be an “absolute red line.”

“If removed or meaningfully tampered with,” Holder began the tweet. “There must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both.”

Holder is clearly not suggesting a war in the streets, he is simply stating that should either side not get what they think is right, they must let their voices be heard. It is the people, not the courts, that will decide whether Donald Trump will be able to remain in office should he fire Bob Mueller.

Sujit Choudhry goes into detail on this perspective and others in Constitutional Democracies in Crisis?
