"The CDC's job is protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S."
In theory this is a true statement. However, the CDC employees don't get paid without continued grants. And this administration will only fund such a study with a predetermined outcome. Quite honestly, given that they fall under DHS they kind of have credibility issues already. I would have more faith in some sort of independent study than one done by an arm of this or any administration. Especially one that has shown so much contempt for America, Americans, and The Constitution.
