Brzezinski appeared to suggest that the person not telling the truth might be Warren, stating that she had "a bad feeling it might be the accuser."

“I don’t know what happened there, but somebody’s not telling the truth, and I have a bad feeling it might be the accuser,” Brzezinski added.

Warren, immediately after the Tuesday night debate, accused Sanders of calling her a liar on national television. The moment occurred on camera as the two spoke after the debate.

Sanders appeared to offer his hand to Warren, who confronted the Vermont senator. Sanders later walked away.

Audio of the moment released on Wednesday revealed that Warren had said Sanders appeared to have called her a liar on national television. Sanders replied that he did not want to discuss the issue at that time.

During the debate, Sanders said he never said at a December 2018 meeting with Warren that a woman could not be elected president. Warren said he had and that she disagreed during the conversation.

The battle has alarmed progressive groups and created a serious rift between the presidential race's two most powerful liberal voices.

Brzezinski appeared to be more sympathetic to Sanders during the "Morning Joe" broadcast on Thursday.

“Bernie is just being pulled into it, what is he supposed to do?” she said at one point.
