Obama Administration

Geithner Expected To Depart By Month's End

Don't let the door hit you ...


Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner plans to leave the administration by the end of the month — and he really means it this time.

Geithner intends to leave his post at the end of January, whether or not a deal is in place to raise the debt ceiling, according a source close to the Treasury secretary.

Geithner previously pushed back his departure plans to work on the resolution to the fiscal cliff at the request of President Barack Obama.

The source said Geithner will return to New York City and that he had long planned to leave Washington after the fiscal cliff fight was over.
