Members of the committee offered opening statements on the articles Wednesday.

Their comments fell along party lines, with Democrats arguing impeachment is necessary to prevent Trump from soliciting foreign interference in U.S. elections, and Republicans faulting the impeachment process as a sham unfairly targeting the president.

The articles of impeachment are expected to pass along party lines, which is likely to set up a vote in the House next week.
