Charles August Lindbergh Sr. was an outspoken US congressman.

WWI Opposition

Lindbergh argued that WWI had been declared for financial reasons. In 1917, US President Woodrow Wilson ordered the confiscation and burning of the printing plates of Lindbergh’s “polite, anti-war polemic” Why is Your Country at War?[1]

Federal Reserve

“The financial system has been turned over to the Federal Reserve Board. That board administers a finance system by authority of a purely profiteering group. That system is private, conducted for the sole purpose of obtaining the greatest possible profits from the use of other people’s money. This (Federal Reserve) Act establishes the most gigantic trust on Earth. When the president signs this bill, the invisible governments by the monetary power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed, the worst legislatives crime of the ages perpetrated by this banking bill.”
Charles August Lindbergh (1913)  [2]

In 1917 he brought articles of impeachment against members of the Federal Reserve Board including Paul Warburg and William P. G. Harding. Lindbergh charged that the Federal Reserve Board members were involved "in a conspiracy to violate the Constitution and laws of the United States."[3]

Death

On May 24, 1924 Lindbergh died of brain cancer. At the time of his death, Lindbergh was a candidate for governor on the Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party ticket. It remains disputed whether his cancer was naturally occurring, or whether it was an assassination. He had been subjected to vicious smears and assassination threats, bribery attempts, and shots fired on his car during a political campaign.[4]
