With Thursday’s release of transcripts from the House Intelligence Committee’s so-called Russian collusion investigation, there’s growing speculation about the house of cards built by Trump-hating co-conspirators beginning to collapse.

One of the early targets of the campaign to take out a duly elected president, former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, was quick to take a victory lap.

Included in the transcripts are top law enforcement and intelligence officials in the Obama administration affirming that they had no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.

Add to the mix the Department of Justice dropping its case against former national security Mike Flynn, saying it didn’t believe prosecutors could prove the case against the former three-star general, this coming after a release of documents showing the FBI set him up in a Jan. 2017 interview.

Before the fireworks began, and amid reports that more damning information will soon be released, Papadopoulos said in an early morning tweet: “I’ve been right along because I lived this story. I know how it began and how it will end. Hint: America wins!”

“Enjoy the show coming,” he added in another tweet.

It was a May 2016 conversation Papadopoulos had with an Australian diplomat in a shady London bar encounter about Russia having political “dirt” on 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton that led to the two-year Russia investigation.

Papadopoulos served 14 days in prison after special counsel Robert Mueller charged him with lying to the FBI about contacts with foreign nationals during the campaign — he said he was coerced into pleading guilty to avoid being charged for not registering as a foreign agent for Israel-related work.

A day before he began serving that sentence, Papadopoulos let it be known that “the truth will all be out.”

And now, a year and a half later, that prophecy is beginning to play out before our eyes — and Papadopoulos is willing to take on the role of play-by-play commentator.

It was Joseph Mifsud, the Maltese professor, who told him in April 2016 that Russia had “dirt” on Clinton. Alexander Downer is the Australian diplomat.

As for what may lie in store, he offered a tease.

Given his own trials and tribulations, Papadopoulos has zero sympathy for those who may soon find themselves under serious scrutiny.

And speaking of set-ups, Papadopoulos boasted about being on to the efforts to play him.

His last tweet on the matter, for now, touches on what millions of Americans are eagerly anticipating.

Naming former CIA Director John Brennan and fired FBI Director James Comey, he tweeted: “The walls are closing in on Brennan and his errand boy Comey.”

After reviewing the recently released documents from the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe, Papadopoulos is certain that an old college classmate was bureau informant “Source 3,” who secretly record him.

“I think they were trying to get me in an obstruction thing, where I would tell them on a recorded line, ‘Dude, don’t talk to the feds.’ And then the feds would have used that as part of the obstruction of justice charge,” Papadopoulos said in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.
