When Bergoglio comes to his third accusation - Judas was an egocentric who had isolated himself from the community - in principle he is correct. Any traitor is motivated by his own interests and has no care for anything else.

But, what Francis is stressing here is not this banality. Instead, he is repeating the progressivist thesis that no one can have a private relationship with God and individual spiritual life, but rather must share everything with the community. It is a kind of spiritual Communism.

With this we see that the accusations Pope Francis made against Judas have little to no actual value.

Certainly they do not excuse Francis from being a follower of Judas in his hatred for the external glorification of God and in his pretext that the Church must give up her pomp and sacrality to better help the poor.

What remains to be analyzed on another occasion is whether or not Francis’ eagerness to please the Jews - his first letter some hours after being elected was for them - can be considered as selling the Mystical Body of Christ to the Jews, as Judas did with Our Lord.
