Former President Bill Clinton and his wife, failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, are planning to appear together in Dallas on Nov. 17 at the Pavilion Indoor Theater where they will take questions from the audience, according to the Irving Music Factory website.
This rare joint appearance signals that Hillary is ready to hard-sell her new book documenting her experiences during the 2016 presidential race, titled “What Happened.” Interestingly, “What Happened” is also the name of a best-selling book written in 2008 by Scott McClellan, former-President Bush’s press secretary.
Starting at $99.50 plus a fee, tickets for the event at the new entertainment complex will go on sale later this month. Published by Simon & Schuster, Hillary’s book is scheduled to come out Sep. 12 and is going to focus on two primary “reasons” for her loss: Russia and then-FBI director James Comey.
Simon & Schuster writes the following about the new book:
“Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. In these pages, she describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterwards.”

In her introduction, Clinton reportedly writes, “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. Now, I’m letting my guard down.”
In addition to giving an increasing number of speeches after a hiatus from public life, Clinton launched a new political action organization called Onward Together in May.
New reports this week also suggest Clinton may be looking into a new career – in the clergy. According to The Atlantic, Clinton told her longtime pastor she wants to preach.
Pastor Bill Shillady is on the verge of releasing a book of devotionals, “Strong for a Moment Like This: The Daily Devotions of Hillary Rodham Clinton,” comprised of personal devotionals he prepared for Clinton during the years she was seeking the presidency.
Of course, all these new ambitious new goals may hit a brick wall due to a new problem Clinton is facing: A federal judge is ordering the State Department to reinvestigate the emails Hillary Clinton wrote about the Benghazi attack in 2012.
Earlier this week, U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta ruled that the State Department had not done enough to try to track down messages Clinton may have sent about the assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound on Sept. 11, 2012, which left four Americans dead, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group attempting to hold Clinton accountable, argued that the initial search wasn’t efficient enough because the State Department never tried to search its own systems for relevant messages in the official email accounts of Clinton’s top aides.
Surprisingly, Mehta, who is an Obama appointee, agreed with Judicial Watch’s claim and issued the following 10-page ruling:
“To date, State has searched only data compilations originating from outside sources — Secretary Clinton, her former aides, and the FBI. … It has not, however, searched 8 the one records system over which it has always had control and that is almost certain to contain some responsive records: the state.gov e-mail server.
“If Secretary Clinton sent an e-mail about Benghazi to Abedin, Mills, or Sullivan at his or her state.gov e-mail address, or if one of them sent an e-mail to Secretary Clinton using his or her state.gov account, then State’s server presumably would have captured and stored such an e-mail. Therefore, State has an obligation to search its own server for responsive records.”
