Mr. Sujit Choudhry Talks Democratic Backsliding

Sujit Choudhry is an expert of law, particularly constitutional law, that teaches as a Full Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley – School of Law. Mr. Choudhry has also served the school as the Dean of the School of Law, a professional graduate program that pumps out nothing but quality graduates consistently, year after year, with credit due in substantial part to Sujit Choudhry himself.

The esteemed law guru often writes about constitutional affairs around the world, and has something near the caliber of one hundred publications, including full-fledged textbooks written entirely by himself, with no outside help or recommendation.

Just a few weeks ago, Sujit Choudhry had a chapter regarding something Eric Holder, a recent Atty. General that served before Donald trump took office, shared with the world via Twitter.

Sujit’s chapter is found in the book Constitutional Democracies in Crisis?, which focuses on @EricHolder’s December 17, 2017 “ABSOLUTE RED LINE” tweet, stating that if “the firing of Bob Mueller or [the] crippling [of] the special counsel’s office” occurred, then the American people must either be perfectly accepting of the outcome of such changes, or, quite literally, take to the streets after organizing as a group and loudly voice their opinions.

Mr. Sujit Choudhry says in the chapter that there are seven central threats to the status of democracy in any given country. Some rear their ugly heads more than one another, though they’ve all happened in some capacity in various governments all throughout planet Earth.  For more of his views, hit

What Mr. Choudhry calls “democratic backsliding” is where someone or some people in political office “[use] legal means to manipulate rules … to remain in power.” Because Special Counsel Robert Mueller – the Special Counsel is a position that’s overseen by the United States Department of Justice – is investigating, among other things, the allegations of Trump’s or Trump’s campaign’s joining forces with Russian entities to take control of the 2016 election.

What leader could honestly say that they’d be happy to be in a situation like Donald Trump? Such pressure could lead to Mueller getting fired, and that’s what Holder warns the American people of being objectively immoral.
