Cameras were rolling before Trump’s “civil fraud trial” got underway and what they caught is quite disturbing.
In the video footage a camera operator was able to take a video of AG Letitia James eyeballing President Trump.
The same cameraman was also able to record a video of Judge Arthur Engoran smiling and posing for the camera.
Take a look:

Surprising footage from inside the New York State courtroom revealed Attorney General Letitia James eyeballing former President Donald Trump moments before his fraud trial began.
Cameras were not expected in the courtroom for the trial, and this brief clip appeared to come from a sole camera operator capturing b-roll before the proceedings began. Trump has been found guilty of business fraud and appeared in court Monday morning as the judge reviews and decides the appropriate punishment.
The images shown to viewers included a moody, serious, and aggrieved former president, then a fascinating shot of AG James in the background looking on to the defendant. In the hour before this moment, the Trump Team sent out a thorough oppo file via email, entirely designed to vilify and make a mockery of the James-led charges.
Before leaving the courtroom, the camera operator appeared to capture Judge Arthur Engoron by surprise, who took the camera angle in humor, smiled, and shrugged his shoulders for all to see. Engoron was also the victim of a Trump attack via social media just hours earlier.

Per The Hill:
Former President Trump is in court in New York on Monday in a sweeping civil case that could jeopardize his control over some of his most famed properties.
A judge last week determined Trump had been liable for fraud for inflating the value of some of his properties in order to secure business loans. The judge heard opening statements from Trump’s defense and prosecutors who argued over the legality of Trump inflating property values in order to get business loans and insurance policies on better terms.
Monday’s trial marks the start of a long legal road ahead for Trump, who also faces a combined 91 charges in four criminal cases and several other civil cases.
