“According to reports, the CDC is urging the Department of Justice to appeal a Florida judge’s ruling to invalidate the federal mask mandate for public transportation,” Pirro said. “This appeal is a brazen attempt by a deeply politicized and corrupt CDC to wrench freedom and personal choice away from Americans. They say masks on planes and trains are necessary for public health due to COVID.”
In its statement advising that it would be fighting to retain its control over American freedoms, the CDC wrote that it was appealing in order to “protect” its authority “beyond the ongoing assessment,” a flashing warning sign that it plans to use its extra-constitutional powers in the future.
“It is CDC’s continuing assessment that at this time an order requiring masking in the indoor transportation corridor remains necessary for the public health,” the agency said in its press release.
