San Diego-area Congressman Darrell Issa will not run for reelection this year, the second California Republican to announce his retirement this week. He later targeted Clinton as she moved toward seeking the presidency over her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
Issa, who joined the House in 2001, won re-election in 2016 by a half percentage point in a district that favored Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to President Donald Trump.

"Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve", he said.

"I am forever grateful to the people of San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties for their support and affording me the honor of serving them all these years", Issa said in a statement Wednesday morning.
Those activists have protested weekly outside Issa's Vista, California, district office - leading to a unusual scene in May in which Issa stood on his rooftop, looking down at the protesters below.
