Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs Can Count on Geithner
Reinforcing criticism of his too-close relationship with Wall Street, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is reportedly in touch with executives of Citigroup, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs on a regular, sometimes daily, basis, spending more time with industry leaders than with key lawmakers on Capitol Hill. After obtaining Geithner’s calendars through Freedom of Information Act requests, the Associated Press discovered the treasury’s top man is known to field calls from Wall Street’s elite after meeting with President Barack Obama, before speaking with members of Congress, and following discussions with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.
