Sujit Choudhry’s latest publication is a book that he co-wrote called Constitution Making. In the book, he has a chapter titled Constitutional Democracies in Crisis? that focuses on a tweet from December of 2017 by Eric Holder, the former Attorney General under President Obama. The tweet purported that if Robert Muller was terminated from his position as White House Special Counsel, that would be an “absolute red line” and that the American people should protest peacefully if this were to happen. Choudhry wrote that Holder’s tweet is about “constitutional self-enforcement, built around the concept of a focal point”, and he points out that it is interesting that Holder, someone who was once the nations top law enforcement official, is not even calling upon a legal challenge in the attempt to terminate Mueller. The chapter goes on to further break down and analyze Holder’s tweet. Sujit Choudhry is an accomplished writer, researcher, and advisor, and further study of his book proves just how adept he is in researching comparative constitutional law.
