Sujit Choudhry Discusses Threats to Democracy

The renowned law professor and international legal expert, Sujit Choudhry has recently discussed some trends that can threaten the stability of democracies worldwide. In a recent discussion, Sujit talked about a remark made by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. Recently, Eric Holder called for the people to protest and make a demonstration in case White House Special Counsel Robert Mueller is terminated. Choudhry claims that Holder’s encouragement calls for the American people to decide if there was an abuse of political authority (works.bepress.com).
