We're not worried about this tactic being used to defeat Trump.  We're
worried about Trump using it to win.

"Okay everyone, my opponent just conceded.  Here's a video clip.  So nobody
bother to go vote for anyone but me."

If there were questions about his legitimacy just for not winning the
popular vote, this kind of tactic could spark a civil war, regardless of who
wins the election.  (Even if he loses, there will be those who sincerely
believe - no matter what - that he was the only one still running, because
TV said so.)

And worse, if he uses it to sway Congressional races toward whichever
politician (R, D, or otherwise) he likes in a given race.

Ja, no doubt both sides thought of this after seeing Rogue One, if not

There is a still more complicated scenario: neither of the mainstream
campaigns had anything to do with it.  These videos are from outside actors,
working for completely unknown motives, such as... they want to see a super
well-armed economic competitor nation in a civil war.

If Tarkin videos are used and it flips an election, we can fart around
having the government investigate itself for years and come up with nothing
but more Stormy Daniels (they will always find more Stormys back there)
never finding any connection between the video makers and either party.  The
result stands.  The trick will be repeated.  ...until we figure out that we
really can't believe what we see and hear.  Then we have a whole nuther
