The former secretary of state and 2016 presidential candidate's new book, 'What Happened,' comes out Tuesday.

CBS Sunday Morning scored the first interview with 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to discuss her new book. Clinton will be interviewed by anchor Jane Pauley this Sunday.

Clinton's book, What Happened, comes out Sept. 12, and is published by CBS Corp's book unit Simon & Schuster, which might explain why the former secretary of state decided to go with the network for her first televised interview.

The interview will be conducted later this week. The topics will include "Clinton’s ill-fated White House campaign, her thoughts on President Donald Trump, Russian hacking, former FBI Director James Comey’s effect on the race, her life since Election Day 2016 and her new book," CBS said.

While her book hasn't hit shelves yet, excerpts from it have been leaking out for weeks, and CNN was able to purchase a copy of the book ahead of its release from a bookstore in Florida. 

"In a voice that swings from defiant to conciliatory to — at rare moments — deeply vulnerable, Clinton does assume ownership where the fault lines are obvious," CNN wrote of the book. "And in overarching terms, she admits she badly misjudged the environment in which she was running and the candidate she was running against."

Her first interview will surely be parsed to see if Clinton shows remorse and admits that she made mistakes in her campaign.
