Sujit Choudhry Explains Eric Holder Tweet

Sometimes, governments and the officials that operate them do too much, don’t do enough, and otherwise don’t handle issues well. However, in most cases, governments are great for human society – that doesn’t mean they can be universally trusted by their constituents, though.

Eric Holder, best known as the acting Attorney General under the Barack Obama administration, tweeted roughly four months ago about the status of how the rest of the United States federal government was treating Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

In that tweet, Holder said, “The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative,” in-regards to either the “firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office.”

Donald Trump’s administration is believed by many to have joined forces with Russian forces to sway the results of the most recent presidential election, in November 2016. Although he and his camp have denied such allegations, he once fired Michael Comey, likely for not acting in the best interest of Trump himself.

As such, it’s only fair to believe that Robert Mueller could be fired, the United States Department of Justice Special Counsel’s power could be knocked, or both could actually take place.

Sujit Choudhry, best known by most people as a professor of law at the University of California, Berkeley – School of Law.  Mr. Choudhry is also the dean of the program and has taught at several other colleges around the nation, and even one in Canada.

Mr. Choudhry feels that it’s very important for American’s citizens – or any country’s citizens, for that matter – to draw a distinct line in the political ground in-regards to an acceptable manner to which government officials can act. Without these societal checks in place, in which the citizenry of the United States effectively serves as the fourth level of checks and balances in the country, Holder and Sujit Choudhry alike warn governments could take too much power.

Democratic failure, says Sujit Choudhry, could rear its head if Robert Mueller is removed from office as Special Counsel, something that the Trump administration could seek out.
