According to a press release, Clinton’s memoir will chronicle mistakes in her campaign and the “devastating” loss to President Donald Trump.
“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 U.S. senator, first lady and secretary of state writes. “Now I’m letting my guard down.”
According to NBC, Clinton previously blamed Russian meddling, former FBI director James Comey, sexism and “fake news” for her loss. An insider told The Hill that the book will also include a “bombshell” about the election.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said this week that she should not blame anyone but herself and poor messaging.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things–Comey, Russia–you blame yourself,” Schumer told the Washington Post. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
“What Happened” will be released on Sept. 12. Clinton’s previous books include “It Takes a Village,” “Dear Socks, Dear Buddy,” “Living History” and “Hard Choices.”
Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, is working on a thriller titled “The President is Missing” with James Patterson. The novel about “behind-the-scenes global drama from the highest corridors of power” will be released in June 2018.
