Last year, the FBI investigated Clinton's use of a private email server and whether she had improperly stored or transmitted classified information during her tenure as secretary of state.
But, as The Washington Post notes, this portrait is skewed.
The book "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign" reveals how in a flurry of calls the White House urged Clinton to concede defeat.
The first sign of trouble reportedly came at about 7:45 p.m. when Steve Schale, a Clinton campaign polling analyst, called to say that loss was imminent in the key swing state of Florida.
In other phone calls, Clinton "declined to take responsibility for her own loss". "Everything you said, we're going to do in this speech".
The book claims that Mr Obama "didn't see any point in prolonging the inevitable".
Campaign manager Robby Mook was described clashing with longtime senior Clinton aides when he pursued data analytics instead of more traditional methods for attracting potential voters. "POTUS doesn't think it's wise to drag this out", Simas said.
By then, the outcome of the election was final and now, "with the president placing a consolation call, the reality and dimensions of her defeat hit her all at once".
"I regret it every day, but it was the right decision for my family and for me, and I plan on staying deeply involved", he said in 2016, reports WVIT.

As the first polls closed on 8 November, Hillary Clinton was preparing for the moment she would at long last take the stage as the first female president of the United States.
Shortly after her call with Trump, Abedin handed Clinton the phone again. "I found out when I was reading the book because I'm interviewing one of the authors", she explained. But trying to guilt-trip an entire country into voting for that woman...
Allen and Parnes appeared Tuesday morning on Fox & Friends, where they discussed how the Clinton Campaign reacted to their failure as the results came in on Election Night.
In their eyes, Clinton also failed to connect with the voters who were inspired by Sanders and Trump.
Cillizza: What did you learn about Clinton that you didn't known when you wrote your last book together?
US Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders called a slogan of his party's nominee for the 2016 presidential election "phony" on the campaign trail. When Hillary was done reading, she looked up and told her advisers it was too much.
But in the end, Allen and Parnes contend, the worst blows Clinton suffered were self-inflicted. Well. We all know what happened next.
Parnes and Allen also wrote that on election night, Bill Clinton compared Trump's upset victory to 'Brexit'. The authors provide plenty of details, but their takeaway is familiar: Sanders was unexpectedly popular; Clinton could never quite figure him out but nonetheless managed to outlast him. But they were largely ignored or pushed aside. He fights with Podesta. Mook has little regard for communications director Jennifer Palmieri. But the Comey episode doesn't address why the race in the reliably blue Rust Belt was so close to begin with or what Clinton could have done to alter it.
"She had let him down".
