Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has bought a house in Rhode Island, and his new neighbor is a familiar face from their days together in the Trump administration: former national security adviser Michael Flynn, the AP reports. The Newport Daily News, citing public records, reported that the sale closed Jan. 2, and Spicer paid $795,000 for the 1,800-square-foot Middletown home, which has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Representatives for Spicer did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

The house is across the street and three doors down from Flynn's home, in a neighborhood that's a short walk to the beach. Flynn is awaiting sentencing on his guilty plea to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts. Spicer grew up in nearby Barrington. (Last month, Flynn's sentencing hearing took an unexpected turn.)
