Catholic World: Pope Pius XII "Preparing an Official Condemnation of [Architects of Vatican II] Murray, Jacques Maritain"

Did Pope Pius XII implicitly condemn Vatican II?

In 2008, the liberal Catholic World admitted that Pope Pius XII was "preparing" to condemn probably the main architect of Vatican II Jacques Maritain and another architect of the Council John Courtney Murray "who "played a role in... Declaration on Religious Liberty":

"[T]he Holy Office was preparing an official condemnation of Murray, Jacques Maritain... only the death of Pope Pius XII on October 8, 1958... prevented this from happening."
(Catholic World, "Censuring of John Courtney Murray Part Two," March/April 2008)

Maritain is considered by many the architect of Vatican II. The indisputable top architect of Vatican II Pope Paul VI said:

"I am a disciple of Maritain. I call him my teacher.

If Pius XII hadn't died of two stokes on October 8, 1958 it is possible that Vatican II might never have happened since its main architects would have been condemned.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

I would be interested to know what propositions of Maritain the pope was about to condemn.

Jacques Maritain I think was a sincere Catholic who was a naive fool and completely misread the American situation in the 50s as being friendly to the Church. He mistakenly thought the secular liberals would be convinced by his brand of natural theology Thomism and convert to Catholicism.
I've always been suspicious that John Courtney Murray was an Americanist. Interestingly enough there is a scholarly work that links him to the CIA's attempts in the 50s and 60s turn Catholic clergy into promoters of the Americanist heresy. The book is called: "John Courtney Murray, Time/Life, and the American Proposition: How the CIA's Doctrinal Warfare Program Changed the Catholic Church."

Might it be Good for all of us & for Francis to Read about the "Gruesome Death of Arius"?

  I have read the letters of your piety , in which you have requested me to make known to you the events of my times relating to myself, and to give an account of that most impious heresy of the Arians , in consequence of which I have endured these sufferings, and also of the manner of the death of Arius . With two out of your three demands I have readily undertaken to comply, and have sent to your Godliness what I wrote to the Monks; from which you will be able to learn my own history as well as that of the heresy . But with respect to the other matter, I mean the death, I debated with myself for a long time, fearing lest any one should suppose that I was exulting in the death of that man. But yet, since a disputation which has taken place among you concerning the heresy , has issued in this question, whether Arius died after previously communicating with the Church ; I therefore was necessarily desirous of giving an account of his death, as thinking that the question woul
