Other areas of focus include constitutional building procedures. Mr. Choudhry has helped many nations employ the right constitutional design and context in the endeavors. His latest publication has been an eye-opener among many social media users in the United States. Choudhry focuses on a tweet by Eric Holder who served as the 82nd Attorney general of the USA from 2008 to 2015.
In his tweet published on 2017, Eric Holder calls any possible termination of Robert Mueller, the White House Special Counsel “red line.” Sujit Choudhry breaks down the tweet and explain how the call for action against the termination is based on two models. He expounds how the tweet brings out the definitive constitutional boundary in the American state of democracy.
Choudhry goes on to dissect the tweet depicting how the American people are going to determine whether the officials disobeyed the constitutional boundary in the call for action. He underlines that the reaction of the people will determine the outcome of the issue
As a constitutional law scholar, Choudhry looks at another instance where an autocrat president would want to extent his or her term in office. In USA, a president has to run for two terms as per set constitutional law. He says that taking such actions will push political opponents to mobilize citizens to defend their constitutional rights.
He thus calls Eric holder’s tweet as form of democratic failure as no official should hold an office past the set term limit. In the publication, Mr. Choudhry goes on to look at the different aspects of the current political situations. Sujit Choudhry discusses Poland’s political incident of seizing constitutional Tribunal as a good example of democratic failure (releasefact.com).
Sujit Choudhry concludes that, such incidents counterparts with Eric Holders call for “absolute red line” in his tweet. And Americans should understand their constitutional rights and shun any unconstitutional motives by certain individuals.
