Which is grammatical? "Almost forgot" or "almost forgotten"?

Bullshit. He may never face justice but he is one corrupt son of a bitch. Almost forgot, he is a traitor too.

@oristarA,
"almost forgot", but hs contention is extreme partisan nonsense, better forgotten.

@MontereyJack,
Thx.
It seems that "forgot" can be a form of past participle of "forget".

Read "almost forgot" as "I almost forgot".

You certainly could think that way, but then the form "Almost forgot, he is a traitor too" wouldn't be standard in English.

@oristarA,
Some rules of English are often ignored when people are speaking informally.

@oristarA,
That's how the sentence was meant. Read in context, "I" is implied. It is standard spoken English written down.
