Reportedly, Mark Halperin created & # 39; vague threats & # 39; for his former boss after he had crushed a planned reunion between the controversial expert and his good friends Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
The former Morning Joe panel member planned to reunite with the hosts of the show to restore his image according to insiders from MSNBC, who told The Daily Beast that Halperin's plan was shot down by network president Phil Griffin.
That's when Halperin reportedly responded by calling Griffin and coming up with & # 39; vague threats & # 39 ;, said insiders.
& # 39; Griffin was furious about the conversation and would probably not accept calls from Halperin in the future & # 39 ;, individuals on the network claim.
MSNBC would not comment on the alleged exchange, months after it was reported that Halperin hoped to use Brzezinski and Scarborough for his comeback.

Halperin's planned book on the 2020 elections was officially announced last month, amid protests that the co-author of Game Change had not earned a second chance since being confronted with those allegations of sexual harassment.
Regan Arts has announced that "How To Beat Trump" will be released in November.
The book is based on the input of dozens of democratic party strategists, including Donna Brazile and David Axelrod. Reports on the publication of the book were received with countless accusations, with former Fox News host Gretchen Carlson reporting the news & # 39; slap in the face of all women & # 39; and others condemned the participation of Brazile and others.
Axelrod and former Michigan governor, Jennifer Granholm, are among those who now regret their decision to work with Halperin.
In addition, representatives from CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN have all stated that Halperin will not appear in any of their programs.
Regan Arts founder Judith Regan said in a statement that she did not form or endorse Halperin's alleged behavior in any way.
She further said: & I have also lived long enough to believe in the power of forgiveness, second chances and offering a person a way to salvation.
& # 39; How To Beat Trump is an important, thoughtful book and I hope everyone has the chance to read it. & # 39;
Halperin was a bestselling author and controversial political commentator before countless women claimed that he had made rough sexual progress, leading to the cancellation of a book deal he had with Penguin Random House and his resignation by Showtime and NBC News.
Halperin apologized for causing & # 39; pain and anxiety & # 39; but also claimed that some of the allegations were not true.
