No explanation is going to work at this point, Hillary.

Hillary Rodham Clinton will hold a news conference Tuesday to address the furor over her exclusive use of a private email account while she was secretary of state, sources confirmed to MSNBC.

The timing was not immediately clear. Clinton is scheduled to speak Tuesday at a United Nations conference on women.

Hillary Clinton acknowledged Tuesday that it “would have been better” to use a government email address along with the personal one she used while secretary of state at her first press conference since the controversy erupted earlier this month.
