    David Brock, founder of Correct the Record, walks to a platform before speaking at the Clinton School of Public Service in Little Rock, Arkansas, March 25, 2014. The Super PAC is offering to pay people to provide dirt on Donald Trump.

    Correct the Record, a well-funded super PAC Hillary Clinton's ally David Brock founded, is creating a WikiLeaks-style project to pay anonymous tipsters for scoops, which they're calling Trump Leaks, NBC News reported.

    While the effort is focused on uncovering previously unreleased audio and video recordings, Brock is interested in just about anything on Trump — as long as it's new, unflattering and procured legally.

    "We're chasing everything," Brock told NBC News. That could be internal documents about Trump's business empire, his tax returns or perhaps something more personal.

    Posting a bounty for dirt on a political opponent is highly unusual in modern politics and seems to cross a new line in the rules of war. "We're going to extraordinary lengths because this is an extraordinary situation," Brock said.
