berman when there's even less evidence. >> will it be admissible what he said in the bathroom. >> the answer is of course it depends on what the judge thinks. you have three questions, charlie. we have to look at chain of custody of this case. how long did they have it? where did it go? was it edited? then we have to look at the fact about the admission itself. and look and see if he had a reasonable expectation of privacy. now, we're really thinking in the bathroom we all have a reasonable expectation of privacy. but was the producer working in concert with law enforcement so that then it kicks in this whole question of should he really have been advised in any way? and one of the things his lawyer said to me late last night when we talked is he says this jarecki was interested in ratings. he edited the show to suit his purpose. we're interested in the truth. we know where they're going with
