After Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby was assigned the Gray case and subsequently charged six cops in his death, the Baltimore police union, among others, called for Mosby to excuse herself because she apparently received donations from Murphy.

During the morning interview, co-host Mika Brzezinski treated Murphy as if he were on the witness stand and questioned him about any possible conflicts of interest.
