Khil died later that year.
Under the care of Dr. Cohen, who performed the endoscopy on Rivers, and her E.N.T. Specialist Korovin, who performed an unauthorized biopsy, Rivers stopped breathing and later died.
The biopsy was not authorized, as Rivers never signed a consent form. And once it began, her vocal cords began to swell, Anderson 360 revealed Tuesday night. But that’s not all. Not only was Korovin not supposed to be treating the comedienne, 81, at this time, medical staffers have also told investigators that she snapped a selfie with the beloved funny woman, while she was under anesthesia – a major violation of privacy, given she did not give her consent to have her picture taken.
Dr. Cohen, who doubled as the clinic’s medical director, has since parted ways with Yorkville. The clinic confirmed his departure, stating, Dr. Cohen “is not currently performing procedures…nor is he currently serving as medical director.”

As has now been widely reported, Dr. Korovin was with Ms. Rivers at Yorkville Endoscopy on East 93rd Street on the morning of Aug. 28, helping out on what was supposed to a routine medical procedure after the comedian had complained of hoarseness. While under sedation, and undergoing two procedures, a laryngoscopy (an examination of her voice box and vocal cords) and an endoscopy (which involves looking at the upper digestive system), Ms. Rivers went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics rushed her from the clinic to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was kept on life support until she died a week later, on Sept. 4, at 81.
Soon, Dr. Korovin, 56, was tabloid fodder, accused of behaving unprofessionally and perhaps even contributing to the cause of Ms. Rivers’s death.
Perhaps the most serious allegation, according to published reports, was that, in addition to the endoscopy, performed by the clinic’s medical director, Dr. Lawrence B. Cohen, Dr. Korovin performed the laryngoscopy on Ms. Rivers, even though she was not authorized to practice at the clinic. (Dr. Cohen has since resigned as the clinic’s medical director.) In addition, CNN reported that staff members at the clinic told investigators that Dr. Korovin had also used her smartphone to snap a selfie while Ms. Rivers was under anesthesia, telling someone in the room that Ms. Rivers “will think this is funny.” That claim quickly went viral, even as a person described by CNN as close to Dr. Korovin denied to the network that she had taken a selfie or performed an unauthorized procedure.
According to the medical examiner’s report, issued on Oct. 16, the cause of death was “anoxic encephalopathy due to hypoxic arrest during laryngoscopy and upper gastrointestinal endoscopy with Propofol sedation.” (Propofol, which was linked to Michael Jackson’s death in 2009, is an anesthetic known for having a high risk factor for respiratory arrest.)

The US state of Missouri added propofol to its execution protocol in April 2012. However, Governor Jay Nixon halted the first execution by the administration of a lethal dose of propofol in October 2013 following threats from the European Union to limit the drug's export if it were used for that purpose. The United Kingdom had already banned the export of medicines or veterinary medicines containing propofol to the United States.
Jackson's physician, Conrad Murray, administered 25 milligrams of propofol diluted with lidocaine shortly before Jackson's death.

Biden’s monkeypox adviser is trying manage a virus while dodging talk of Satanism
Demetre Daskalakis has become caricatured as a tattooed oddity among buttoned-up bureaucrats. The truth is far different. “I wish I were that interesting,” he says.
But increasingly, right wing critics have painted him as a caricature, far different from the actor who scrolls the Italian country-side in search of mouth watering meals. Sifting through Daskalakis’ Instagram feed, they’ve plucked out thirst trap shirtless posts showing off his tattoos — accusing him of being a Satanist.
They included tweets like the one alleging that “Joe Biden appointed a Satanist to the White House” because of his pentagram tattoo. Another tweet featured a photo of him shirtless and asked, “seriously?” Many of the images were mined from his Instagram page, which is chock-full of shirtless pictures showing off 30-plus other tattoos. One article that featured numerous photos of him said “Dr. Daskalakis’s social media presence reveals a penchant for pentagrams and other Satanic symbolism.”
Daskalakis laughs off the charge. For the record, he confirms he’s not a Satanist. “I wish I were that interesting.”

Gov. Kathy Hochul has faced questions over $637 million in state payments made to a campaign donor.
ALBANY — Gov. Kathy Hochul maintains that when her administration paid a vendor $637 million last winter for COVID-19 tests, she was unaware the recipient was a campaign donor.
"I was not aware that this was a company that had been supportive of me," Hochul told reporters at a July 20 press briefing. "I don't keep track of that. My team, they have no idea.”
Yet a month before the Hochul administration struck the deals, records show, the company's founder threw an in-person campaign fundraiser for Hochul.
According to Hochul's campaign disclosure forms, the Nov. 22 fundraiser was thrown by Charlie Tebele, founder of Digital Gadgets LLC. A month later, the company would begin reaping $637 million in payments from Hochul’s administration to facilitate the purchase of 52 million at-home, rapid coronavirus tests.
The deal was enabled by Hochul's revived suspension of competitive bidding rules for the administration's purchase of COVID-19 supplies — a policy change that had also been been put in place for a time by former Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. Through an emergency executive order, Hochul suspended those rules on Nov. 26, four days after the Tebele fundraiser.
A Hochul spokeswoman did not directly address the governor's July statement that she'd been unaware Digital Gadgets was associated with a campaign supporter.
Hazel Crampton-Hays, a spokeswoman for Hochul, said the governor "did not oversee the procurement process and was not involved in the day-to-day procurement decisions."
"She simply instructed her team to purchase as many available tests as possible to meet the tremendous need across the state, and they did exactly that to keep New Yorkers safe. As we have always said, campaign donations do not have any influence on government decisions and we reject any implication otherwise," Crampton-Hays said.
The Tebele family has donated nearly $300,000 to Hochul’s campaign, and Tebele has thrown her two campaign fundraisers: One a month before the purchase orders were executed, and one on April 10, two weeks after the payments were complete.
In instances involving other campaign donors, emails show Hochul has discussed state government business at fundraisers, and her campaign staff helped connect those donors with high-ranking staff in Hochul’s Executive Chamber.
Tebele's attorney told the Times Union in July that, "Mr. Tebele has never had a conversation about (Department of Health) business with the governor — ever."
According to Digital Gadgets, Tebele never spoke to the Hochul campaign about providing the COVID-19 tests. Digital Gadgets, which had previously landed state contracts, became "aware of the need for tests based on public media reports," according to the company.
Digital Gadgets declined to say how the company came into contact with the Hochul administration concerning the sale. Hochul's campaign declined to answer questions about any interaction between its staff or the governor with the company.
In selling the antigen tests to New York, Tebele’s company charged a far higher price per test than other vendors the state used last winter. California bought the same test Tebele was selling for a price of 45 percent less per unit.
Unlike California, which bought the AccessBio "Carestart" test directly from the manufacturer, the Hochul administration bought them through Digital Gadgets, a third-party distributor that took an unspecified cut.
On Nov. 22, Tebele paid $5,150 for food, decorations and wait staff for the Hochul campaign fundraising event, according to Hochul's campaign filing. Charlie Tebele’s wife, Nancy, donated $18,000 to Hochul on that date.
According her schedules, Hochul attended two "private events" in the New York City area on the evening of Nov. 22. During that same time period, she frequently attended government-related meetings concerning the COVID-19 pandemic. High-level staffers, including Director of State Operations Kathryn Garcia, were involved in striking the deals with Digital Gadgets.
Also in November, a younger member of the Tebele family began working as a paid intern for Hochul’s campaign fundraising staff, according to his LinkedIn profile. On Dec. 15, Hochul’s campaign made its first payment to James Tebele, an undergraduate student at New York University who is listed in campaign records as having the same Manhattan address as Charlie and Nancy Tebele. James Tebele was later hired to a full staff position as a campaign "finance associate."
On Dec. 16, Hochul’s campaign received $20,000 from Leon Tebele, who is also listed as having the same Manhattan address as the couple.
Four days later, on Dec. 20, Charlie Tebele made an offer to sell the Hochul administration 26 million coronavirus rapid antigen test for $13 apiece — an offer the Hochul administration approved that same day.
On May 18, both Nancy and Charlie Tebele hit the maximum of $69,700 they could give Hochul's campaign. An array of other Tebele family members subsequently gave large amounts, many on the same day, including several with no other history of donating in New York elections.
Hochul's administration has asserted that only Digital Gadgets could supply a significant number of rapid tests before schools reopened the week of Jan. 3. The rapid tests were necessary to keep schools open after winter break, a major priority for Hochul, who did not want closures caused by the highly infectious omicron variant. Through Jan. 3, the company provided the state with about 1.5 million tests, according to invoices the company sent to the state health department.
The health department has declined to say whether New York could have purchased more tests in late December from other vendors at lower prices. Just before New York signed its first purchase order with Digital Gadgets for $13 per test on Dec. 21, the department had struck another deal for 5 million tests — at $5 apiece — with iHealth Labs.
Hochul's administration said its efforts to secure millions of in-demand tests were successful. In early January, over 95 percent of New York's school districts resumed in-person learning when major school districts across the country conducted remote learning.
The administration did "extensive outreach" to vendors to determine who had tests to buy, and the administration also received outreach from vendors with tests to offer, given the widely reported test shortages and governor's public briefings on the effort to distribute tests, Crampton-Hays said.
She did not answer a question about how Tebele specifically connected with the Hochul administration, or with whom he made contact.

Memorandum on Declassification of Certain Materials Related to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation
At my request, on December 30, 2020, the Department of Justice provided the White House with a binder of materials related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Portions of the documents in the binder have remained classified and have not been released to the Congress or the public. I requested the documents so that a declassification review could be performed and so I could determine to what extent materials in the binder should be released in unclassified form.
I determined that the materials in that binder should be declassified to the maximum extent possible. In response, and as part of the iterative process of the declassification review, under a cover letter dated January 17, 2021, the Federal Bureau of Investigation noted its continuing objection to any further declassification of the materials in the binder and also, on the basis of a review that included Intelligence Community equities, identified the passages that it believed it was most crucial to keep from public disclosure. I have determined to accept the redactions proposed for continued classification by the FBI in that January 17 submission.
I hereby declassify the remaining materials in the binder. This is my final determination under the declassification review and I have directed the Attorney General to implement the redactions proposed in the FBI’s January 17 submission and return to the White House an appropriately redacted copy.
