Read it as a virtual signaling treatise about how they were actually protecting the election from the supposed evil machinations of Trumpism and election tampering/interference, and it's less an admission and more a self righteous declaration of: "Trump was the one who tried to rig the election, but we were the steadfast defenders who fortified its free and fairness, praise us!!!"
"The scenario the shadow campaigners were desperate to stop was not a trump victory. It was an election so calamitous that no result could be discerned at all, a failure of the central act of democratic self-governance that has been a hallmark of America since its founding"
....."That's why the participants want the secret history of the 2020 election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream-a well funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions, change rules and laws, steer media coverage, and control the flow of information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system's fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures"...
In essence, it's one protracted circle jerk from people who believed the election would be compromised by an "Autocratically inclined president".
To them, Trump was such an existential threat to democratic principles that they had to (according to the Molly) take well coordinated measures to prevent him and his supporters from tapping into their bottomless bag of conspiracy and misinformation to sow seeds of doubt, pressure state officials, galvanize resentment and grievance with the express purpose of throwing one giant wrench in the shape of a middle finger in the whole process.(In that, they obviously failed in spectacular fashion).
It's just a bunch of liberals who want a pat on the back for being paragons of election integrity.
Honestly, I think the OP intentionally used phrases like "Cabal" and "Shadow campaign" to trigger conservatives and conservative adjacent voters because she knew it would invariably be taken out of context.
This shit is coming from the same woman who wrote a biography about Nancy Pelosi.......
I do not disagree. What's funny is that this basically admits to what would have gotten you banned from social media for talking about pre-election.
