This week Inside the Hive welcomes Marc Elias, the lawyer who defended the election results against the Trump campaign’s assault, winning 62 out of 63 court cases in multiple states. Despite the fraud claims of eight senators and 139 House members who rebelled against the certification of Joe Biden’s win this week, Elias says “not a single judge found a single vote that was fraudulent. None.
