Hustler Publisher Offers Millions For Impeachable Information About Trump

Larry Flynt is willing to pay $10 million “for information leading to the impeachment and removal from office of Donald J. Trump.”

The Hustler magazine publisher made the offer Sunday in a full-page advertisement in The Washington Post. He laid out his case against Trump, accusing him of “compromising domestic and foreign policy with his massive conflicts-of-interest global business empire.” The ad alleged that the president is “telling hundreds of bald-faced lies,” and charged him with “gross nepotism and appointment of unqualified persons to high office.”

“The attempt to impeach Donald Trump will strike many as a sour-grapes plot by Democrats to overturn a legitimate election,” Flynt wrote. “But there is a strong case to be made that the last election was illegitimate in many ways — and that after nine tumultuous months in office, Trump has proven he’s dangerously unfit to exercise the extreme power accrued by our new ‘unitary executive.’”

Flynt explained that he is looking for a “smoking gun” that could cost Trump the presidency. “Did he make some financial quid pro quo with the Russians?” the ad asked. “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.” Flynt provided a toll-free phone number and an email address for people to send information.

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

Post spokeswoman Kris Coratti, who did not reveal how much Flynt paid for the ad, said the newspaper gives advertisers “wide latitude to have their say.” She continued: “Generally, if the ads are not illegal or advocating illegal actions, we try not to place limits on speech or content.”

Flynt said he hoped to get some credible responses “within a few days,” and promised to make them public. “I don’t think you can live as recklessly as Trump has for 30 years and not leave some baggage along the way,” he told the Post. “I can’t think of something more patriotic to do than to try to get to get this moron out of office.”

Flynt, a Hillary Clinton supporter in the 2016 election, has a history of buying ad space in the Post. In 1998 and again in 2007, he offered readers a million dollars for proof that any government office-holder had been involved in a sex scandal. Some of the information he received may have helped lead to the resignation of Republican Rep. Bob Livingston. In 2012, Flynt pledged to fork over a million dollars for the tax returns of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who was running for president at the time.

The Washington Times reported that soon after Trump took office, the publisher told an interviewer: “I don’t think he’ll be around long. But even if they are able to impeach him, we’ll still be stuck with Pence, and Pence is worse than he is. Call 20 psychiatrists and see if you can get any one of them to say he’s sane. He’s nuts. He’s a narcissist. He’s constantly repeating himself. He tells one lie after another. I don’t think he even realizes how much he’s lying.”
