Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn is planning to sell his Northern Virginia home to offset mounting legal costs associated with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
Flynn has been increasingly concerned over “crippling legal costs” the case has brought and is now planning to sell his house to offset the costs, according to a source who spoke to ABC News. He pleaded guilty on Friday to lying to the FBI about his contact with Russian officials during the presidential transition.
The 2,118 square foot Alexandria home was purchased by Flynn in Nov. 2015 for $774,000, but today the house is estimated to be worth $811,837, according to the real estate agent Redfin.
The 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home was built in 2005 and sits in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, just outside of Washington, D.C.
His legal bills reportedly were a major factor in Flynn’s decision to enter the plea deal, as he worried about the growing costs of contesting the charges.
The house has not yet officially hit the market.
