U.S. Senator Harshly Criticizes FBI for Handling of Mob Informant Mark Rossetti

Sen. Charles Grassley, a longtime critic of the FBI, issued some harsh words for the agency in the case of  FBI informant Mark Rossetti, a big-time Boston mobster, who was sentenced last week in Suffolk Superior Court to 12 years in prison.

Grassley said the Boston FBI hasn’t learned its lesson since FBI informant James “Whitey” Bulger ran amuck and continued to commit crimes while working as an FBI informant, according to MyFox Boston. He said the Boston office needs a major shakeup.

“I thought it was pretty clear after Bulger as an example, now Rossetti coming out and not having learned any lessons. There needs to be big changes. I’m not running the FBI but this has been going on too long. There have to be big changes,” Grassley told FOX Undercover.

Fox wrote on its website:

Rossetti is a mob captain and suspected murderer who was charged in 2010 with running an organized crime ring including heroin trafficking, loan sharking and extortion. A State Police wiretap on Rossetti that gathered evidence used to indict and ultimately convict him also recorded conversations with his FBI handler, showing he was committing crimes while acting as a paid informant.

“It’s very difficult with the use of a Rossetti or a previous person that they wouldn’t know it’s going on and there wasn’t some knowledge of it. And if there isn’t knowledge of it there ought to be, otherwise the FBI is not doing its job,” Grassley said.
