Hillary Clinton must hold a news conference immediately to "explain the brazen conflicts of interest and obvious pay-to-play politics that went on in her State Department," Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Wednesday.

"Clinton owes explanations for why she broke ethics agreements regarding foreign donations to her family foundation, gave preferential treatment to foundation donors as secretary of state, and why we should believe that her secret server wasn't designed to cover up the shady pay-to-play politics at her State Department," Priebus said.

The chairman referenced Clinton's session with reporters at the United Nations in March 2015 when she said that "it would have been probably smarter" to use two email accounts while she was the nation's top diplomat.

"We've been here before," Priebus said. "In March of 2015 Clinton stood at the U.N. and lied directly to the American people about the nature of her secret server and the classified information she exposed."

His comments come a day after The Associated Press reported that 85 of the 154 people representing private interests who met or had telephone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she was at the State Department had donated as much as $156 million to her family foundation.

At least 40 contributed more than $100,000 each, while 20 gave over $1 million, the AP reported.

Clinton's last news conference was on Dec. 5.

"It's time for her to face the press again, except she needs to tell the American people the truth they deserve this time," Priebus said. "Failure to face the press will only deepen the question on voters' minds: what exactly is she hiding?"
