Hillary Rodham Clinton and husband Bill Clinton have made $35 million from 164 paid speeches to financial services, real estate and insurance companies since leaving the White House in 2001.

That's according to an Associated Press analysis of public disclosure forms and records released by her campaign.

The long and lucrative relationship between the Clinton family and the financial services industry has emerged a key issue in her Democratic primary race.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is accusing Clinton of being too cozy with the financial industry she once represented as senator from New York.

Her campaign points to her record, saying it shows a history of working to regulate the industry.
