BOBBIE BATTISTA, HOST, "TALKBACK LIVE": I have to interrupt here to go quickly to Bob Franken in Washington for an update on the Condit case.

Get ahead, Bob.

BOB FRANKEN, CNN NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Bobbie, 5:00 Eastern, which is to say, a little bit over an hour from now, Abbe Lowell, who is Congressman Condit's attorney, is holding a news conference. CNN has learned from two sources connected to the Condit camp that he will announce that the congressman has taken a lie detector test.

As you know, the police and the congressman have been trying to negotiate the conditions for a lie detector test. We are told that the announcement will be -- it's characterized as a major announcement -- that he has taken a lie detector test and that the results were favorable to the congressman.

We do not know if he's going to be talking about the police lie detector test or if it was an independent test. Many lawyers will tell you that before you submit your client to a polygraph test you make sure, if he's prominent in particular, that an independent one was taken and that the results were favorable.

But CNN has learned that there will be an announcement at 5:00 Eastern from Abbe Lowell, Congressman Condit's attorney, announcing that he has taken a lie detector test and that the results are favorable -- Bobbie.

BATTISTA: All right Bob, thanks very much. We'll just have to wait until 5:00 to see which test he's talking about.
