Hustler publisher Flynt puts $10m on the line in Trump impeachment stunt

Porn baron pledges $10m to anyone with information which leads to Trump’s impeachment

Porn baron Larry Flynt, publisher of Hustler magazine, has reignited questions over whether president Donald Trump could be removed from office by pledging ‘up to’ $10m to anyone with information that leads to his impeachment.

Placing his money where his mouth is Flynt took out a full-page advert in the Washington Post to announce his largesse in an attempt to entice possible whistleblowers to come out from the woodwork with a tempting cash offer for dirt.

Backed up by a subsequent Twitter post Flynt has been forced to up the ante after a previous $1m reward offered during last year’s presidential campaign failed to find any takers.

In return for the cash Flynt is seeking an audio or video recording of Trump engaging in illegal or sexually degrading activity which could serve as a ‘smoking gun’ with which to drive Trump from office.

The White House hasn’t yet commented on the publicity stunt.
