WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton is shifting her tune when it comes to the use of a private email account during her time as secretary of state. She tells ABC News it "was a mistake" and she is "sorry about that." Clinton had declined to apologize for using the email system in interviews on Friday and Monday. Still, the issue is likely to stick around. Two powerful Senate chairmen say they're considering immunity orders for a former aide who maintained Clinton's personal server. Lawyers for Bryan Pagliano have said he would plead the Fifth if asked about the server.

GRAYSON, Ky. (AP) —The Kentucky clerk refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples is out of jail. Kim Davis was greeted with a hero's welcome when she walked of the jailhouse in Grayson, with thousands of people waving white crosses and cheering her on as "Eye of the Tiger" blared over loudspeakers. The same judge who locked her up lifted the contempt ruling against her, saying he's satisfied her staff has been granting marriage licenses, and warning her not to interfere.

OLATHE, Kan. (AP) — He said he didn't care if he'd get life in prison or death. A jury recommended he get death. Now the fate of a white supremacist who killed three people at Jewish sites in Kansas lies in the hands of a judge. Seventy-four-year-old Frazier Miller, who was representing himself at trial, had earlier today told jurors that when it came to his sentencing, "Frankly my dears, I don't give a damn." He later raised his arm in the Nazi salute.

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Hungary is bracing for a larger wave of asylum seekers in the next ten days. Leaders of the U.N. refugee agency say 42,000 asylum seekers are headed for the country and that the country will need international help to provide shelter on its border. Migrants have had no choice but to sleep in frigid fields. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees says there is needless suffering in the migration crisis "because Europe is not organized to deal with it."

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland's mayor has named the 13 members of a new commission that will recommend how to improve city police officers' interactions with the public. The members sworn in Tuesday include a law school dean, a teacher, a retired minister, a community activist and three police officers. It's part of a consent decree between Cleveland and the Department of Justice.
