Sujit Choudhry’s Recent Book Chapter

Most people are familiar with the most prestigious, sought-after, honorable jobs in the United States. How many times have you heard phrases like, “doctors, lawyers, teachers” when politicians or public speakers are referring to people that work hard or should be proud of their positions?

Probably more times than you can count, whether you realize it or not.

Sujit Choudhry is both a lawyer and a teacher. As a matter of fact, he’s not just a teacher; Mr. Sujit Choudhry is proudly a full professor of law at the Berkeley Law School at the University of California, Berkeley, check blogs.law.nyu.edu. He is such a well-renowned figure in the world of law that he holds the distinction of I. Michael Heyman Professor of Law, the only such seat across the U.C. Berkeley law department that has such a distinction named after a past faculty member that’s noteworthy.

A Distinguished Author

Mr. Choudhry is also an author, in addition to his two aforementioned posts, and has published nearly 100 works throughout his career (works.bepress.com). One of his most recent publications is a chapter in a book authored by an ensemble cast of writers. The chapter is titled Constitutional Democracies in Crisis? and focuses on, believe it or not, a tweet.

Eric Holder, a former Attorney General that served as recently as January 2017 under the Barack Obama administration, criticized the potential firing of Robert Mueller, the United States Special Counsel, a position that serves under the Department of Justice.

Mueller has long investigated potential collusion between Donald Trump, the 2016 presidential election campaign of Trump, and other figures that are closely tied to the current United States President.

Trump has fired many people he’s appointed to office, including those he publicly considered the closest to his executive branch decision-making circle of advisors, including the FBI’s James Comey.

Mr. Sujit Choudhry believes that the tweet is based on an imaginary boundary between what the people of the United States will tolerate and what they won’t. Further, Sujit Choudhry leaves the ultimate approval of the potential firing up to the American people, and wants the citizenry to be politically active – whatever their point of view.
