What does "voted along party lines"(2nd paragraph) mean?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she agrees with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler that the country is in a "constitutional crisis" amid a tense standoff between congressional Democrats and the White House.

Nadler declared a "constitutional crisis" after his committee voted along party lines on Wednesday to hold Attorney General William Barr in contempt for defying a subpoena to release special counsel Robert Mueller's full, unredacted report on the Russia investigation.

House Democrats have issued a number of subpoenas for testimony from past and current administration officials as well as for President Donald Trump's financial records. But the White House has asserted executive privilege over the entire Mueller report.
