The Trump White House had more first-year departures than any other president in at least 40 years — and the departures haven't stopped. The latest resignation: Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Why it matters: The first term revolving door of Trump's highest Cabinet officials is not normal, although some turnover should be expected now that we're past the midterms.
