Cory Doctorow on Obama's "Unprecedented Presidential Powers"

From Cory Doctorow's 12-6-16 post entitled "Obama Is Suddenly Interested in Limiting the Sweeping Presidential Powers He Spent 8 Years Expanding":

"Many 'progressives' looked the other way while the Obama administration asserted unprecedented presidential powers, like the right to murder anyone the president feels like, anywhere in the world, using drones and other technologies; and the right to spy on everyone, all the time. Now that Donald Trump is about to inherit those powers, the Obama administration has released a 61-page report insisting that the president's powers should be drastically curtailed and made accountable and transparent."
