Questions linger over reasons for FBI investigation into man who had oversight of Connecticut Port Authority

Connecticut Port Authority Executive Director John Henshaw and authority board Chairman David Kooris said in an interview Thursday they’re not sure what it means. While the grand jury subpoena was made public, the reason for the investigation is not. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment Thursday about the purpose of the investigation and whether it is connected to the state probe. Kooris said Diamantis has been involved with the port authority since late in 2019 during the final negotiations for what is known as the Harbor Development Agreement, or HDA. State Sen. Cathy Osten said she had “no idea” why the FBI was investigating Diamantis but said oversight of the Connecticut Port Authority has increased over the past year thanks to several bills passed by the legislature. Those bills require stricter reporting requirements to provide a level of transparency sought by legislators.
