However, Issa’s announcement yesterday did not include the word “resign” specifically.

Rather, he said he would stop representing the 49th district, which his fellow Republicans took as a cue that he will follow through with a scheme he has secretly disclosed to them.

According to his colleagues, Issa may attempt a run in the neighboring 50th district, where his Republican colleague, Duncan Hunter, faces federal and congressional ethics investigations

As one of California’s few Republican representatives, Issa saw the writing on the wall in the 49th.

His party’s harboring of a president who represents the single greatest threat to American security spells electoral disaster in a swing district.

Issa barely eked out a victory in his district in 2016, while Hillary won there by impressive margins.

Hunter did better in the 50th, which may make Issa think he has a better shot in that district as a Republican.

However, Hunter’s ethical entanglements, coupled with the dumpster fire that is the Trump presidency, could spell disaster for the king of phony Republican witch hunts. 

This ruse of his, a betrayal of his erstwhile constituency, only proves how self-serving Issa really is.

He is a standard bearer of Republican hypocrisy, over which voters are growing increasingly aggravated.

It’s up to us to get out the vote in 2018 to make sure the corrupt Republican Party gets the  greatest drubbing in history.
