They think they can sway independent voters and suburban women with yet another sham in the long run, but they are trying to sully reputations in the short run to cover for the almost certain fallout from the failed coup attempt because it has so many ties into key deep state figures who are going to get fucked by Durham's team.

That's already known for certain. What's also already known for certain is that Schiff and his staff interacted with the whistleblower before the complaint was filed, suggesting a political hit and also making Schiff a fact witness in an investigation he's leading. Additionally, we know that a Schiff staff member flew to Ukraine to meet with Yanukovych too. So there appears to be some political coordination.
As it stands right now, all of Schiff's testimony is hearsay. They are keeping it secret from the American public, and none of it would be admissible at trial in the Senate anyway. They must know this. I mean they are stupid, but not that stupid.
"This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science."
