He was also the first, and to date, only Academic Research Counsel at Google, Inc., and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the Yale Law School.

    I think complete clemency power by the executive is dubious either way. For instance, if a governor had the power simply, for all time, to commute all death sentences to life or a term of years, it would be troubling.

    Interference as spelled out here is problematic too.
