The SOTU Scoop

By CNN's Susan Garraty

The attorney for the embattled former IRS official, Lois Lerner, tells CNN’s State of the Union that if House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa wants to give Lerner immunity, there’s a streamlined way forward.

“We have repeatedly suggested that the committee follow the course provided for obtaining immunity for Ms. Lerner. Had it done that a year ago, we would all have been spared a great deal of unpleasantness.” Lerner’s attorney, William Taylor wrote in a statement sent to CNN.
