Clinton served as New York Senator before she ran against President Barack Obama in 2008, and was later his first Secretary of State.
"In the past, for reasons I try to explain, I've often felt I had to be careful in public, like I was up on a wire without a net", the former US senator, first lady and secretary of state writes. "Now I'm letting my guard down". Either way, the book is available for pre-order now, and will be available in bookstores and online on September 12, 2017.
For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history.
In public remarks since last fall, the Democrat has cited Russian Federation as a factor in her defeat to her Republican opponent, along with a letter sent by then-FBI Director James Comey less than two weeks before the election.
However, people of her own party believe that the book fails to cover the major aspects that allowed Trump to win.
"The president himself asserted in late November that he won the popular and the electoral vote", Politico's Steven Shepard wrote.
"I didn't fully understand how impactful that was and so it created doubts in people", Clinton said in April of Russia's "weaponizing of information". A Clinton ally told Axios that the book would be a "bombshell", but indicated it would be a "why I lost" type book that focuses in particular on Comey and Russian Federation.
I wonder if she'll explain how the Russians and Comey tricked her into ignoring Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
