Eric Holder, former Cabinet Member of Barrack Obama, in December of 2017 sent a tweet that said the firing of Robert Mueller would be a red line that if crossed could lead to strong opinionated voices from both sides.
Sujit Choudhry, expert in politics and law professor, dissected the tweet in a new book. In Choudhry’s chapter he speaks about all possible meanings to the Holder tweet.
In one such instance Sujit explains that Holder could’ve simply meant that the American citizens will be the ones to ultimately decide whether Robert Mueller will be fired or not. If Mueller were to be prematurely removed from his position, and the American citizens express discontent with the decision, he will likely be rehired. If Robert Mueller is fired an no one speaks up, it is very likely that the investigation will end.
Sujit Choudhry points out that former Attorney General Holder doesn’t mention anything about the legal repercussions if anyone fires special counsel Robert Mueller. Sujit calls this peculiarity especially odd because Holder used to be the nations highest level law enforcement agent during his time on Obama’s Cabinet.
