“There is a process in place that secures people’s rights, and that most basic right is presumed innocence,” he said.

But Noem “said she wants him removed and wants to release information, selective information before he’s been able to go through the fair process,” Rensch said. “I shake my head at the idea that someone can just decide on their own because they’re in a high political office” that they will ignore legal safeguards.
