MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski ridiculed Sen. [crscore]Elizabeth Warren[/crscore] for not answering questions in an interview, saying, “I’m not sure I would have continued the interview.”

Friday, Brzezinski, the liberal co-host of “Morning Joe” speculated that the reason Warren did not criticize Hillary Clinton for not releasing the transcripts of speeches to Wall Street corporations is because Warren may be trying to become Clinton’s vice president.

Brzezinski said, “What I think is really happening here is that Elizabeth Warren might be trying to negotiate herself a very good position — whatever the Clinton administration might look like.”

Warren appeared on “CBS This Morning” Thursday and was asked whether or not Clinton should release the transcripts to the speeches she gave to Wall Street corporations, including Goldman Sachs.

Brzezinski said, “Now you’d think the answer to that would be crystal clear, right? Elizabeth Warren? Should Hillary release the Wall Street speech? Of course she should. Right?”

After multiple proddings from CBS’s Norah O’Donnell, Warren refused to answer the question.

Brzezinski reacted, “I think she’s going to be veep [vice president]. There must be something in play here. That was obviously dancing around the topic so I hope you get something good.”

Later, Brzezinski added that Warren “was completely circumventing the question. I’m not sure I would have continued the interview, and you guys know that I’m good on that, but that was no answer. There must be some negotiation under way.”
