WASHINGTON — FBI agent Mark Rossini, whose name surfaced in New York gossip columns for dating actress Linda Fiorentino, has been charged with illegally accessing an FBI computer for personal use.
Rossini, who resigned Friday,  was charged with  five misdemeanor counts in a criminal Information  filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Washington. In many instances, when a criminal Information is filed, the defendant ends up pleading guilty.
Rossini had been based in Washington but later transferred to New York, where press reports had him dining with Fiorentino at Elaine’s, a well known uptown restaurant.
Del Quentin Wilber of The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Linda Fiorentino has ties to Anthony Pellicano, the controversial Los Angeles private investigator, who was convicted in May of using illegal wiretaps and rogue cops to dig up info for famous clients.
The Post said that Pellicano’s attorneys in a court filing in March 2007 referenced an FBI report that raised questions about a certain FBI agent’s credibility. The lawyers said the prosecution should have turned over the report during discovery.
Rossini was the source of that document, the Post  reported, attributing that to “one law enforcement official.”
Channing Phillips, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office, declined to comment Tuesday night on the case but said a hearing was scheduled for next Monday before U.S. Magistrate Judge John Focciola. Debbie Weierman, a spokeswoman for the FBI in Washington, declined comment.
The court papers charge that Rossini on five different occasions in 2007 in Washington “exceeded his authorized access to a protected computer belonging to the Federal Bureau of Investigation”.

Corrupt FBI, yet another infringement on our rights by the gov’t. Add it to the ever-growing list of violations:
They violate the 1st Amendment by opening mail, caging demonstrators and banning books like “America Deceived” from Amazon, Wikipedia and Facebook.
They violate the 2nd Amendment by confiscating guns during Katrina.
They violate the 4th Amendment by conducting warrant-less wiretaps.
They violate the 5th and 6th Amendment by suspending habeas corpus.
They violate the 8th Amendment by torturing at Gitmo.
They violate the entire Constitution by starting illegal wars without declaration.
Impeach them all (both parties) and save this great country.
