Analysis. Bottom line: The interview with Mifsud was friendly and vague, probably deliberately; Mifsud's account appears to invalidate basically all the narratives since attributed to him, including Mifsud's "Russian Connections" (Mifsud says he introduced Papadopolous to just one Russian). Mifsud says he never discussed the DNC hack with Papadopolous, but did discuss cybersecurity in other contexts. And additionally, the interview actually supports Papadopolous's account of his status with the Trump campaign at the time (suggesting Papadopolous was being truthful, despite the FBI's later prosecution of him for false statements on that topic; see the Flynn case for why such guilty pleas should not be considered dispositive).
