Startling video evidence captured within the confines of the New York State courthouse depicted Attorney General Letitia James intently observing former President Donald Trump in close proximity, mere moments prior to the commencement of his trial on charges of fraud.
The presence of cameras in the courtroom during the trial was not anticipated, and the provided video clip seems to have been recorded by a single camera operator gathering supplementary footage prior to the commencement of the proceedings. Donald Trump has been convicted of engaging in fraudulent activities related to his commercial ventures. On Monday morning, he made an appearance in court, where the judge is currently evaluating the case and determining the suitable penalty.
During the interview conducted by Fox News host Bill Hemmer of guest Jonathan Turley over the phone, the shocking scene was captured on camera, surprising Hemmer.
The visual content presented to the audience encompassed a somber, grave, and indignant ex-president, followed by a captivating depiction of Attorney General James observing the defendant from a distance. Immediately preceding this instance, the Trump Team disseminated a comprehensive opposition file over electronic mail, with the explicit purpose of discrediting and ridiculing the claims spearheaded by James.
Upon exiting the courtroom, the camera operator seemingly caught Judge Arthur Engoron off guard, prompting him to react with a lighthearted camera angle, a smile, and a nonchalant shrug, which were visible to all present. Prior to this incident, Engoron had also been subjected to a social media attack by Trump, which occurred a few hours prior.
Judge Engoron looks to have proved Trump’s point that the case is a witch hunt brought by a racist attorney general who hates him.

Trump made a lengthy statement in his defense prior to entering the courtroom. CNN stopped showing it after a few seconds, but Fox News allowed it.

The Associated Press reported “The fraud lawsuit that could cost former President Donald Trump control of some of his most prized prized properties went on trial Monday, with New York state lawyers vowing to hold him accountable while he denounced the case as a politically motivated “scam.””
The civil case, brought by New York Attorney General Letitia James, accuses the business-mogul-turned-politician and his company of deceiving banks, insurers and others by habitually misstating his wealth in financial statements.
“They were lying year after year after year,” Kevin Wallace, a lawyer in James’ office, said in an opening statement as Trump sat at the defense table.
Trump showed up voluntarily for the trial, with his control over Trump Tower and some other major real estate holdings in jeopardy.
“This is a continuation of the single greatest witch hunt of all time,” the Republican said as he approached the courtroom, reiterating claims that James, a Democrat, is trying to thwart his return to the White House.
President Trump excoriated the judge and AG Letitia James in a series of posts on his Truth Social account yesterday and today:
“I’m going to Court tomorrow morning to fight for my name and reputation against a corrupt and racist Attorney General, Letitia James, who campaigned on “getting Trump,” and a Trump Hating Judge who is unfair, unhinged, and vicious in his PURSUIT of me. He values Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, at 18 Million Dollars, when it is worth 50 to 100 times that amount. His valuations are FRAUDULENT in pursuit of Election Interference, and worse. THIS WHOLE CASE IS A SHAM!!! See you in Court – Monday morning.”
“The judge, Arthur Engoron, refuses to accept our big win in the Court of Appeals, nullifying much of the case that the racist Attorney General of New York, Letitia James, has charged us with. Nobody can believe it!”
“Judge Engoron’s Valuation of Mar-a-Lago, the most spectacular property in Palm Beach, Florida, IS FRAUDULENT! He states a value of 18 Million Dollars, knowing full well that it is worth, perhaps, 50 to 100 times that amount. Engoron is working diligently to misrepresent me, and my net worth, which is substantially MORE than is shown on my fully “disclaimed” Financial Statements.
I have not even included my most valuable asset – BRAND! He should resign from the “Bench” and be sanctioned by the Courts for his abuse of power, and his intentional and criminal interference with the Presidential Election of 2024, of which I am leading all candidates, both Republican & Democrat, by significant margins.
Likewise, Letitia James should resign for purposeful and criminal Election interference. She is fully aware that Mar-a-Lago, and other assets, are worth much more than what she is claiming. Both of these Democrat Operatives are a disgrace to New York, and to the United States of America!”
Trump posted this on Monday morning:
“JUST ARRIVED AT THE COURTHOUSE TO FIGHT A CORRUPT & RACIST ATTORNEY GENERAL, AND A ROGUE, OUT OF CONTROL, TRUMP HATING JUDGE, WHO REFUSES TO FOLLOW THE APPELLATE COURT DECISION WHICH KNOKS OUT 80% OF THIS SHAM CASE. THIS IS THE CONTINUATION OF THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT OF ALL TIME. ELECTION INTERFERENCE!”
