Read Penthouse’s Letter About the Donald Trump- ‘Golden Showers’ Claim (Exclusive)

“We are offering up to $1-million to secure exclusive rights to the FSB tapes documenting Trump’s Russian hotel hijinks. After all, seeing is believing,” Penthouse Global Media CEO Kelly Holland tells TheWrap

“Golden Showers” was the hot phrase of the night on Tuesday after BuzzFeed published a collection of memos accusing President-elect Donald Trump of improper contact with Russian officials — and alleging the former reality TV star arranged “golden showers” with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room.

While the unverified claims were shared by countless news outlets and mocked mercilessly on social media, Penthouse took a unique approach by offering “$1 million for exclusive rights to the FSB tapes of Donald Trump’s ,” via Twitter.

Kelly Holland, CEO Penthouse Global Media, explained in an exclusive statement to TheWrap why the adult publication is attempting to “secure exclusive rights to existing video (if any) that corroborates the allegations regarding president-elect Trump and his tryst with Russian sex workers.”

See the full letter from Holland below.

To Whom it May Concern,

We, along with the rest of the free world, are intrigued by the report alleging President-Elect Donald Trump employed sex workers to perform a “golden showers” show in the presidential suite of the Ritz Carlton hotel in Moscow.

However, while many media outlets are content running a story based on conjecture and rumor, we at Penthouse are committed to the value of getting the story right rather than getting it first. So we are offering up to $1-million to secure exclusive rights to the FSB tapes documenting Trump’s Russian hotel hijinks. After all, seeing is believing. 

Penthouse Magazine has a rich history of celebrating people’s differences, fetishes and sexual preferences. We have also made great steps educating the public on the difference in having wild kinky fun versus engaging in risky or damaging behavior. We are comfortable giving our president-elect the benefit of the doubt, but if this footage exists, we the people deserve to know the truth.

Sincerely,

Kelly Holland
