Letters: Let Robert Mueller investigation proceed, but don’t celebrate FBI leaks

Re “Trump and his minions can’t out-leak the FBI” (Eugene Robinson, Feb. 1): Syndicated columnist Eugene Robinson would have us hope the FBI will abuse its investigative powers to destroy people they don't like. He pines for the press to get more scintillating stories through illegal, anonymously-sourced leaks attacking the legitimacy of the hated President Donald Trump in the court of public opinion. I say let the Robert Mueller investigation proceed legally to its conclusion, bringing a full report to the public. And let the Department of Justice Inspector General's investigations of abuses of power, including leaks, do the same. May the guilty be sentenced through due process, not through partisan spite. And may the press never promote police state behavior.
