Geithner mulling departing post: report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has signaled to White House officials that he is considering leaving the administration after a deal to raise the debt limit is reached, Bloomberg News reported on Thursday, citing three anonymous sources.

Bloomberg said one of the three people familiar with the matter said Geithner has not made a final decision and will not do so until the debt ceiling issue has been resolved.
