Sujit Choudhry, a New Book, and his Thoughts on an Eric Holder Tweet

Sujit Choudhry is currently the Director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions. Formally, he has worked at Berkeley, the University of Toronto and New York University, serving in a variety of educational roles. Sujit Choudhry is world renowned for his involvement in countries like Jordan, Libya, South Africa, and Egypt. During his world travels he has advised in democratic transitional processes. He has been a constitutional advisor for nearly 25 years.

Mr. Sujit Choudhry earned his own education from a few of the most prestigious colleges in the world. He attended Oxford on the Rhodes scholarship; Sujit went to Harvard too, gaining a Frank Knox Memorial Fellowship (law.nyu.edu).

In addition to his primary methods of educating, he has also edited and written for a variety of text books. Sujit’s most recent contribution to the printed page can be found in Constitutional Democracies in Crisis? In this book, Sujit took an entire chapter and explained the ideologies of Eric Holder, who shared a somewhat extremist tweet in late 2017.

The tweet from Holder called for civil protest from both sides of the isle. “ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office,” the tweet began. “If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both.” Eric Holder wrote of the importance that the American people be heard and seen no matter their political views.

Choudhry took to the new book to explain the possible different meanings behind Holder’s tweet. Sujit Choudhry said that Holder’s red line could be a sign of democratic failure. A democratic failure so critical that Choudhry compared it to a president ignoring term limits, election fraud committed by incumbents, or unconstitutional seizures of power.

Sujit Choudhry goes into great detail in the book, explaining what he believes to be Holder’s underlying message and his own opinions.

Sujit also talked about Poland’s trouble from 2015, comparing it to Holder’s beliefs concerning President Trump and Bob Mueller. After the Constitutional Tribunal was appointed, Poland went through a drastic change in their justice system, check releasefact.com.   As of now, these changes have affected 13 different laws in their justice system. These are the type of extreme changes that can be seen once a person in power successfully attains more.
