16. Please read Effie's response

She explains well why your source doesn't support your argument.

Among other things, Nadler doesn't have to convince a judge that the material is for "judicial purposes." He has to show it's to be used "preliminarily to or in connection with a judicial proceeding." The bill states that this is the purpose, so he'll be able to establish that easily.

The House is not seeking the grand jury materials for oversight purposes but for purposes preliminary to or in connection with a judicial proceeding. That makes all the difference in the world and is why your source and it's sources are inapplicable here (since they focus on why an impeachment proceeding carries more weight than an oversight hearing).
