So at this point in time do most people think Trump will be impeached ? How many votes of yes-no are needed ?
And who votes ?
The Sentate, The House or all of Congress ?

The House has begun their impeachment inquiry, and Nancy Pelosi will decide whether or not to draw up articles of impeachment and send them to the Senate. They, in turn, will have an impeachment trial, then must have 2/3 majority to formally impeach the president, and hand over the oval office to VP Pence.
Nancy Pelosi has already sold her soul to the devil, there's no turning back now--she has to complete the inquiry and draw up articles of impeachment. Otherwise, she looks like an even bigger idiot by not doing so. Again, she never wanted to do it, but was forced into it by the Demotards in the House, mainly because of the upcoming 2020 election. She already knows the outcome, and probably goes home at night and cries herself to sleep.
What's remarkable is watching the coverage on MSNBC and CNN and hearing how President Trump has violated every law of the US Constitution, abused the office of the presidency, and bribed other countries to win the 2016 election. And, let's not forget how important hearsay is to the Demotards. He said, she said, he said, she said that she said, that someone heard this and that. What a bunch of crap!
Watch Fox News and listen to what's really happening. President Trump is being impeached because he made a phone call and someone overhead it, then told this person, who told another person, who decided to be a whistle blower. Now, two other people overheard a telephone call in a restaurant. And, the president sent a tweet during the inquiry that the Demotards are taking as a threat, intimidation, and interference. Nothing, absolutely nothing was proven or amounts to any reason to remove the president from office.
Remember: CNN and MSNBC are pro-Demotard, and their number one mission is to "convince" and "brainwash" you into believing that everything President Trump does is wrong, that he was not rightfully elected in 2016, and that everything must be done to remove him from office. President Trump gets blamed for everything bad in this country. "The McRib will only be here for a limited time, probably because President Trump won't allow it."
Fox News is pro-Republican, and their number one mission is to tell you what is actually happening, and what is the truth according to the facts, not hearsay. It's amazing how watching Fox News clarifies the nonsense, and shows the lengths CNN and MSNBC go to twist the facts. It is absolutely night and day watching Fox News and the other two.

The House prepares the charges (a simple majority is all that is needed for further action)
The case is tried in the Senate and a 2/3 majority is needed to remove the president from office.
Some three years into his term and still no case has been found that would produce a simple majority in the house. Just how long it might take if such charges were produced for the case to be tried in the senate for the verdict to be reached is unknown.
The last president to be impeached was already out of office and collecting a pension before the case came to an end. He still got his retirement.

So far no one has come up with the reason for impeachment. They have tossed words around like bribery, quid pro quo etc but no one can prove this in any way.This is not an impeachment trial only a partisan hearing anyway.

I think he will be impeached. The house of reps. impeaches a president. The senate votes to convict and remove that president. Just over half the house's 435 members need to vote in favor of impeachment to impeach Trump. That would be 218 votes in the house.
After he is impeached by the house, 2/3 of the Senate would need to vote to convict Trump before he will be removed from office. They have 100 members, so that would be 67 votes, I suppose.

Well, on one side you have a lot of people providing damning testimony to the effect that trump committed an impeachable crime. On the other side, you have a bunch of people who aren't under oath spouting conspiracy theories. Sondland could be the key, if he confirms the phone call the two aides overheard. Even if he suddenly takes up the "I don't remember" defense, I suspect they is enough for the democratic-held congress to impeach him.
Removal form office is the purview of the senate. At present, I doubt there are enough votes for removal, but Roberts will preside, and I doubt he allows any republican garbage as he isn't beholden to trump. So trump may not be removed, but enough people who aren't die-hard trump supporters may be energized and vote him out.

they had the votes at mid terms, they just did not win enough to get a conviction in the Senate.
