( CNN) George Papadopoulos did not want to go to prison Monday. But 22 months after he first lied to the FBI about his contact with Russians while working for the Trump presidential campaign, the first person charged by the office of special attorney will do his time.

More than a year ago, Papadopoulos was a surprise early target in the Mueller investigation and since then has swayed from working for the President, to turning against him and back again.

“The truth will all be out. Not even a prison term can stop that momentum, ” Papadopoulos wrote to his 74,000 Twitter adherents Sunday night, as he prepared to travel north from Chicago, where his mothers live. “The wool isn't going to be pulled over America's eyes forever. Much love.”
