It depends on Mr. Raab resigned after an investigation found he had acted intimidating and aggressive towards officers in behavior that could have constituted bullying.

The Adam Tolley KC inquiry, released Friday, concluded that as Secretary of State he had engaged in an “abuse or abuse of power” that “undermines or humiliates.”

Mr Raab’s behavior in the department had a “significant adverse effect” on a colleague, and he was also found to have had an “intimidating” effect on staff by criticizing the “completely useless” work at the Justice Department.

Rishi Sunak, who had spent the night pondering whether to sack his key ally, accepted Mr Raab’s resignation on Friday morning with “great sadness”.

Mr. Raab fell to the ground with a bang, criticized the “Kafkaeske saga” and accused “committed officials” of wanting to force him out of the cabinet.
