She apparently had been working on the story "for months". So what the hell happened?
Also, as far as "coordination", you don't seem to pay very close attention. Watch and listen to the talking points and you will see it is very coordinated across the liberal media. Right away, it was all "quid pro quo", and then it moved in lockstep to "extortion" and then "bribery". Same thing with the whole Russian Collusion sage. I don't know if the tail wags the dog, but it's quite clear the messaging is uniform and coordinated across the liberal media.
Working on it for months may mean trying to book the guy once he was arrested for trying to flee the country.
Sorry, I am not buying some vast conspiracy that the entire "media" meets and trades talking points in some shady board room. Do they all skype in? How do those meetings work?

I disagree. This guy is lying his ass off. He is not under oath talking to the press. But would be testifying before congress. If Adam Schiff thought this guy was legit and had the goods he would have called him to testify. They are not dumb.
What this is designed to do is create media pressure on wobbly R senators. When the wobbly R senators find themselves and this shit show is finally thrown to the curb the D's will have their narrative to beat on a daily basis based of the word of a guy they never wanted to place on oath before them.
I could see that with Schiff, but still why not call Rudy then? Even if it was going to be a shitshow, or he may not even show, you can still build up a case from there. An impeachment process is legal, but also political, having this guy testify would have been a hell of a political move. It would have opened up all these things that are now out in the open.
They just missed on all of these. Now, it is too little too late. I do agree this guy is shady as shit and everything he says should be taken as a lie or with heavy salt.
