Hillary Clinton's new book "What Happened" is a candid memoir about her experiences as the Democratic Party's nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election. Clinton sat down with The View co-hosts today (Wednesday September 13, 2017 episode) where she opened up about moving on from that faithful night and her thoughts on the current state of the world. The co-hosts took the opportunity to ask Clinton all their burning questions and no topic was off limits.
"I would have won but for Jim Comey's letter," Clinton says about her loss to Donald Trump on election night. "That stopped my momentum. It really did cause enough people to move away from me. Some of them moved to Trump, some moved to third parties, some didn't vote, but the net effect was pretty clear."
