    Washington insiders must be wondering what will happen next after the last-minute decision by AG Jeff Sessions to terminate former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe only hours before his retirement would have been effective.  This action will surely give partisans plenty to fight over during the coming days and months.

"This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement and intelligence professionals more generally," McCabe said in a statement released shortly after Sessions announced his decision. "It is part of this...
