“We don’t know the content of the report, so there could be, for example, security issues that mean parts of it are problematic to publish. But we will absolutely publish the findings of the report,”She stated. 

Truss is a favourite to replace Johnson in his post. She claimed that she wasn’t invited to the May 20th gathering. This has been particularly embarrassing for Johnson. Johnson was only briefly present at the Downing Street staff outdoor party.
