Retired Army general and ex-Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn has put his house up for sale - to pay his legal bills.

Friends and family told ABC News that Flynn, who pleaded guilty last year to lying to FBI agents about his Russian contacts is selling his three-bedroom townhouse in Old Town Alexandria for $895,000.

Flynn bought the house three years ago and listed it for sale in December, said his brother, Joe Flynn.

Michael Flynn was fired by Trump last year, 24 days into his role as national security adviser and later got caugth up in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

Flynn pleaded guilty on Dec. 1 to lying to FBI agents about his contacts with Russian officials. He misled agents during a White House meeting early in 2017.

"I'm not going to sugarcoat it, this has been a trying experience” for Flynn and his wife, Lori, his youngest brother told ABC News. "It has been a crucible and it's not over."

Mueller is digging into whether Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russian government efforts to disrupt or influence the 2016 election.

Joe Flynn and other family members set up a defense fund for Flynn to collect donations from supporters. He wouldn't disclose how much has been raised, but he said the family has been surprised and deeply moved by the thousands of individual donations they've received, none of which came from foreign nationals or from Trump.
