Is Geithner Contemplating an Exit as Treasury Secretary?

Darren McCollester/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner is contemplating leaving his position after the deficit negotiations have been successfully completed, sources tell ABC News, but it’s too early and there are far too many caveats to say that will definitely happen.

Geithner thinks there might be a window for him to leave if the deficit and debt ceiling talks come to a successful conclusion, the economy continues to improve and President Obama approves of his departure, according to sources, who requested anonymity to speak freely.

But those are a lot of “ifs,” and while Geithner is the last man standing from the president’s original top economic advisers, sources say any definitive reporting that he has told the White House he is on his way out the door is premature.

Bloomberg News reported first that Geithner could be eyeing the door.
