Lauer to Clinton: "Did You Make Enough Mistakes Yourself To Lose The Election?"

MATT LAUER, TODAY SHOW: Fans of yours I think are looking at this book and they're saying this is a frank assessment and this is a much-needed discussion of the 2016 election. Foes of yours are probably saying, 'Oh, here she goes. She's pointing fingers, she whining.'
