Some of Hillary Clinton's top advisers were in the dark about the scope and depth of her controversial email system as the scandal broke in March 2015, with even her now-campaign manager professing ignorance about the private system at the time, according to emails released Thursday by WikiLeaks. One close ally, Center for American Progress leader Neera Tanden, was still fuming months later, pressing now-Campaign Chairman John Podesta on who gave Clinton permission to use the system.

Russian President Vladimir Putin praised Donald Trump for energizing American voters "tired of the elites" while continuing to deny that the Kremlin has sought to meddle in the United States election. "Is America some sort of banana republic? America is a great power. Please correct me if I'm wrong," Putin said Thursday, speaking at the Valdai Club, an annual gathering of Russian and international world policy experts.

"Does anyone really think that Russia can influence the choice of the American people in any way?" Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security explicitly accused the Russian government of hacking the email servers of the Democratic National Committee earlier this year. Hillary Clinton's campaign has accused Russia of hacking campaign chairman John Podesta's email account, although WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has denied that Russian hackers are supplying him material.

From iPad screen time to hours of watching TV, children are consuming media from an early age. To keep up with fast-changing technology in the digital era, the American Academy of Pediatrics has released updated guidelines for digital media use by young children. For children younger than 24 months, avoid any digital media use with the exception of video-chatting. For children 18 to 24 months of age, you can introduce digital media, but use it together with your child and avoid allowing the child to consume it alone.

For children 2 to 5 years old, limit screen time to one hour per day of high-quality programming; watch with your children and help them understand what they are seeing how to apply it Research shows children and teenagers can benefit from media use, including learning new information, exposure to new ideas and social support. But negative impacts of too much screen time include weight gain and loss of sleep, and there's also a risk of exposure to inaccurate or unsafe content.

While denying they were raising election issues, Republican leaders of the General Assembly’s budget committees on Wednesday charged that Democrats seem committed to keeping news of the state’s budget deficit under wraps until mid month.

During an hour-long interview with nonpartisan budget analysts, GOP lawmakers said a procedure in recent years that put a deadline for revenue projections past Election Day is a clear attempt by the Malloy administration to postpone the release of potential bad news until after elections.
