Larry Flynt, the publisher and founder of popular US magazine Hustler has offered a whopping $10 million (approximately Rs 64 crores) for information leading to the impeachment of US President Donald Trump.

In a full page advertisement published in the Washington Post, Flynt announced “$10 MILLION FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO THE IMPEACHMENT AND REMOVAL FROM OFFICE OF DONALD J. TRUMP.”

In the published ad, Flynt terms Trump, a former real estate mogul, as an "illegitimate" president who "was installed only by the quirks of our antiquated Electoral College".

Flynt continues to outline various reasons why he feels Trump should be removed from the office of US President, alleging Trump of everything from “compromising domestic and foreign policy with his massive conflicts-of-interest global business empire” to “telling hundreds of bald-faced lies” to “gross nepotism and appointment of unqualified persons to high office.”

Specifically, Flynt mentions Trump's firing of former FBI director James Comey, withdrawing the US from the Paris Climate Change Agreement and Trump's "unconscionable defence of the KKK and neo-Nazis after the Charlottesville riots".

“Did he make some financial quid pro quo with the Russians?” the ad asks.

“Has the business of the United States been compromised to protect the business of the Trump empire? We need to flush everything out into the open,” it continues.

“Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative — three more years of destabilizing dysfunction — is worse,” Flynt wrote. “ . . . I feel it is my patriotic duty, and the duty of all Americans, to dump Trump before it’s too late.”

At the bottom of the full-page ad, Flynt has given a toll-free number, an email address and an assurance of paying the full amount for good information, along with an assurance of full confidentiality.

A spokeswoman for The Washington Post that published the advertisement, said, “Generally, if the ads are not illegal or advocating illegal actions, we try not to place limits on speech or content.”
