Chicago – Rahm Emanuel plans to announce Friday he’s leaving the White House and coming back to Chicago, sources confirm.

He’s not expected to make any mention of his run for mayor because it would seem inappropriate.

Sources also tell FOX Chicago News he has a new website that will go online in a few days with more details of his plan.

Pete Rouse is most likely to be chosen as interim chief of staff. He was Obama’s chief of staff when Obama was a senator.

At a White House press briefing Thursday, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs would not confirm that Friday’s personnel announcement is about Emanuel.
