Why was Jeff Sessions fired? For being loyal to his office, not Trump

Why was Jeff Sessions fired? For being loyal to his office, not TrumpWhen Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe, he failed to keep investigators off the president’s tail. In an act of unusual forbearance, Donald Trump waited a full 12 hours after the end of the midterm elections to sack Jeff Sessions.
