Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi are constitutional lightweights when it comes to impeachment law. For example, did Pelosi really think no one would notice that she had never called for a vote in the full House before ordering her "inquiry" invalidating all their subpoenas? Did these three people, each with some measure power over all of us, really believe no one would notice their many, many breaches of the Constitution and the law?

(Emphasis mine)

I think she knew she could rely on her allies in the media to treat the "subpoenas" as if they had legal weight behind them, which they did. Plenty of people who only watch 'the news' were wondering why the White House ignored subpoenas. I bet if you asked someone off the street about it they'd think the same thing.
