Tim Geithner's calenders as president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York show frequent contacts with Citigroup executives as the company's finances deteriorated in 2007 and 2008. The New York Fed was Citigroup's primary regulator under Geithner, who later helped devise government bailout plans that gave Citigroup $45 billion in capital and guarantees on $240 billion in toxic assets. Geithner got the Fed job in 2003 with support from Robert Rubin, then a top Citigroup executive and Geithner's former boss at the Treasury Department.
