Obama who was facing a deadline for signing ISA, had announced he would sign the act through White House before.

Josh Earnest, the press secretary of White House, said that Obama will let the act become law without his signature.

He added, “Obama believes that his right to eliminate the nuclear sanctions from this act, is reserved for himself”.
