Timothy Geithner is set for a couple of fun-filled days in Congress, where he's expected to be asked about the NY Fed's actions after Barclays' (BCS) admitted to officials in 2008 - when Geithner was in charge at the NY Fed - they were rigging Libor. The BOE says the Fed bank never said anything about any wrongdoing, a claim that's backed up by a Washington Post report today.

    Timmy was too busy finishing up his own income tax returns to contact the BOE.

    Seems to me that an artificially low LIBOR worked in sync with the policy goals of the Fed. If that is true, it should be no surprise that Geithner and the rest of the Fed did a Penn State and looked the other way as the big banks lied about their borrowing rates.

    Not to worry, the toughest question they would ask him is if he prefers milk or dark chocolate. Likely to be a friendly chat.
