The Hustler magazine founder said he could not think of "something more patriotic" than getting the United States president out of office as the world is being "devastated by the most powerful moron in history".
The businessman said that the offer to pay for information is real.
The bounty was also published in a full-page ad in the Washington Post, the Associated Press reported, and represents a 10-fold increase from a reward Flynt offered last October, after "Access Hollywood" footage was published that featured Trump bragging about groping women.
"Did he make some financial quid pro quo with the Russians?"
In the ad Flynt writes, "Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair, but the alternative - three more years of destabilizing dysfunction - is worse".
In the ad the owner of the erotic magazine pointed out the phone number where you can report the email address and promised complete confidentiality.
"But most worrisome is that, long before climate-change apocalypse strikes, Trump might trigger a nuclear world war", he wrote.
In the promotion, Flynt pretense a few grievances about Trump's activities as president, including his terminating of Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey and his "gross nepotism and arrangement of unfit people to high office".
"I think it's my patriotic duty and duty for all Americans to get rid of Trump before it's too late", says the ad. In 2007, he offered $1 million, also through a full-page ad in The Post, seeking evidence from anyone who had had an illicit sexual encounter with a member of Congress or any other government official. In 1998, in the midst of the Bill Clinton impeachment proceedings, former Louisiana Congressman Bob Livingston, who was expected to become Speaker of the House, announced that he would forfeit the position and resign from Congress.
In 2012, Flynt again promised a $1 million reward in public, this time for the tax returns of then-Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
