Back in October, Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski warned the Clinton campaign of its arrogance.
BRZEZINSKI: She has been hiding this speech money, hiding this foundation stuff, hiding this email stuff and trying to get around it. Mistakes were made and I’m telling you people don’t, they are not feeling a complete connection with her and this doesn’t help to get all high and mighty. Get off your high horse about this tax thing.

On Friday’s Morning Joe, Brzezinski revealed she was called by the Clinton campaign for her criticism.
BRZEZINSKI: I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance — they needed to get off their high horse and understand that this isn’t over. I’ll just say it, NBC got a call from the campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air. That’s just, that’s shooting the wrong messenger.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: By the way, Mika, there were also people surrounding the campaign that tried to tell the campaign it was in trouble. Those people were shut out.
