In a never-to-be confrontation with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Hillary Clinton hoped to stare down the Russian leader who US intelligence believes worked to elect her campaign rival.

It was a fantasy dashed by Donald Trump's election, which Clinton recounts in her campaign memoir, "What Happened." CNN purchased a copy of Clinton's book a week before its widespread release.

"There's nothing I was looking forward to more than showing Putin that his efforts to influence our election and install a friendly puppet had failed," she wrote. "I know he must be enjoying everything that's happened instead. But he hasn't had the last laugh yet."

Wikileaks tweeted, “ New book by ‘Shattered’ by Clinton insiders reveals that “blame Russia ” plan was hatched “within twenty-four According to the Associated Press, Clinton blamed misogyny (hatred of women), James Comey and the FBI, Russian meddling in the election, and even herself for her loss.

A lengthy middle section of Clinton's book is devoted to Russia's attempts to influence the US presidential contest, which Clinton blames in part for her loss. She describes herself as consumed by the various threads of Russia's involvement, writing that she follows "every twist and turn of the story," often with chagrin.

"I read everything I could get my hands on," she writes.

The cloud of numerous investigations into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and the connections Donald Trump's campaign had to the intrusions has hung over Trump's first few months in the White House, leading to a steady stream of stories about Russia's efforts to sway the election.

Clinton's book does involve some introspection and she takes responsibility for her failures, but the book oozes with contempt for Trump and blames two external factors -- Russia and fired FBI Director James Comey -- for her loss.

Hillary: Bernie's attacks 'paved the way' for Trump

  Hillary: Bernie's attacks 'paved the way' for Trump Excerpts released from Hillary Clinton's upcoming book What Happened, looking at her failed 2016 presidential campaign, shows that the former secretary of State blames her defeat at least partly on her primary rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders. In passages shared on social media, Clinton said that because she and Sanders agreed on most policy issues, the Vermont senator resorted to "innuendo and impugning my character." "His attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump's 'Crooked Hillary' campaign," wrote Clinton.

Clinton uses the memoir to offer a character assessment of Putin, who she claims doesn't respect women, carried a "personal vendetta" toward her, and held a "deep resentment" against the United States.

"I never imagined that he would have the audacity to launch a massive covert attack against our own democracy, right under our noses -- and that he'd get away with it," she wrote.

In some of her most biting criticism for her former boss, Clinton also wonders in her book whether a more forceful public response from then-President Barack Obama could have helped remedy the problems caused by Moscow's attempted meddling.

"I do wonder sometimes about what would have happened if President Obama had made a televised address to the nation in the fall of 2016 warning that our democracy was under attack," she writes. "Maybe more Americans would have woken up to the threat in time. We'll never know."

Instead, she describes watching Trump on television with growing resentment, harkening back to his jab during a presidential debate that she would act as an operative for Moscow.

"'No puppet. No puppet. You're the puppet,' " Trump told her during one October debate.

"This man is President of the United States," Clinton wrote. "And no one is happier than Vladimir Putin."

Clinton: Facebook must ‘own up’ to its role in spreading fake news .
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton pushed on Thursday for Facebook to "own up" to its role in allowing fake news to spread."We may have our disagreements among Americans, we're not going to let the Russians come in and divide us. And so we're going to make Facebook own up to everything. They've just begun to own up. They have a long way to go before they get to where they need to be, in my opinion," Clinton told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
