Anybody else feeling a serious deja vu here?

Boris Johnson’s Conservative Party has received a surge in cash from nine Russian donors, who have been named in a suppressed investigation into Russia’s attempts to undermine democracy in the UK.
The report by Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Committee identifies close links between major donors to the Conservative party and the Russian government, the Sunday Times reports.
The report was due for publication this week but was blocked by Johnson, due to reported fears that the information would damage his chances of winning the upcoming UK general election.
Among those donors named in the suppressed report are Alexander Temerko, who worked for the Russian defence ministry and has previously boasted that the prime minister is his “friend”.
The article also points out that there are concerns in Britain that Johnson’s wild personal life has left him open to blackmail attempts by Russia.
Considering how Johnson is fighting to keep this report secret I think that is a pretty good theory.
