Pornography mogul Larry Flynt is offering $10 million for information leading to the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Flynt, the publisher of the legendary porn magazine "Hustler," made the offer in a full-page ad in the Oct. 15 issue of The Washington Post.

Flynt implored Democrats and Republicans to unite like they did when former President Richard Nixon was impeached as a result of the Watergate scandal, reports the Daily Mail.

The enormous headline reads: "Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine announce a cash offer of $10 Million for information leading to the impeachment and removal from office of Donald J. Trump."

Flynt, a Democrat who supported former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, admits that the ad might seem like a case of sour grapes, but argues that "Trump has proven he's dangerously unfit" for the job.

Trump's "impulsive blustering and megalomania … is truly horrifying," Flynt said.

The ad begins by listing three ways in which Trump allegedly cheated, rendering the election "illegitimate."

The first reason given is "our antiquated Electoral College," which enabled Trump to win the election despite having lost the popular vote.

Also pointed out is the irony that the Electoral College "was also designed as a firewall against an unstable demagogue," the ad continues. "In other words, a man exactly like Donald Trump."

The second "cheat," according to the ad, is gerrymandering, which allegedly skewed voting districts with "unearned representatives and electors."

"The third cheat was the Trump team's still cryptic collusion with Russian agents to influence the election in his favor," the ad continues.

In addition, Flynt laid out six "charges" against Trump, including colluding with the Russians, inciting neo-Nazi violence, having business interests which conflict with the office of president, "telling hundreds of bald-faced lies," "complete ignorance of world affairs," "gross nepotism and appointment of unqualified persons to high office," and failing to protect the environment by "sabotaging" the Paris climate accord.

But worst of all, the ad claims, is that Trump "might trigger a nuclear war." It accuses his foreign policy decisions of being the result of "thin-skinned emotion and erratic, ill-advised tweets."

Flynt acknowledges in the ad that impeachment "would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative -- three more years of destabilizing dysfunction -- is worse."

"I do not expect any of Trump's billionaire cronies to rat him out, but I am confident that there are many people in the know for whom $10 million is a lot of money."

It is not the first time that Flynt has offered a sizable reward in the effort to bring down his political enemies.

As he mentions in the ad, he once offered $1 million for dirt on Republicans in Congress, which led to the resignation of House Speaker-elect Bob Livingston, who admitted to having an affair.

The ad concludes: "Sure, I could use that $10 million to buy luxuries or further my businesses, but what good would that do me in a world devastated by the most powerful moron in history?"
