Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign staff want to know who leaked embarrassing details about her run for office to authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes to write about in their new book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.”

These details included Clinton’s apology to President Barack Obama on election night after her loss to Donald Trump and Clinton’s own surveillance of her staff’s emails to see who was leaking information about the campaign.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, one source said:

“The knives are out to find the people who spoke about the campaign to the authors of this book. Dennis has been texting prominent campaign staffers, asking who talked. He’s on a witch hunt to find out who talked to save their own skin, throwing Hillary and her campaign manager Robby Mook under the bus.”

The source added, “There’s some speculation that Huma Abedin cooperated to save her own reputation. However, she and Hillary are still very close.”

A Clinton spokesperson told Page Six, however, “It was our campaign. We lived it. So we don’t need a book to know what really happened, and what’s in there that’s flat-out made up. Huma didn’t talk to them.”
