Newly elected House Speaker Paul D. Ryan will be a guest on all five Sunday political talk shows to discuss his election and plans for the House, his spokesman Brendan Buck tweeted Thursday afternoon. The Sunday programs are Fox News Sunday, CNN’s State of the Union, NBC’s Meet the Press, CBS’s Face the Nation and ABC’s This Week.  

Appearing on all five shows is commonly called “the full Ginsburg,” in a reference to William H. Ginsburg, who was Monica Lewinsky’s lawyer at the start of the scandal over her affair with President Bill Clinton. Ginsburg died in 2013.  

Ryan’s weekend appearances do not necessarily mean he’s breaking his pledge against weekend work. Often times, the shows will tape interviews in advance of their Sunday broadcast.
