Secretary of State John Kerry will appear on all five Sunday talk shows this weekend, setting up the opportunity to make President Obama’s case on Syria to the public and to members of Congress.

Kerry will appear on the Sunday talk shows for NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX and CNN.

The practice of sweeping the whole Sunday lineup — known as the “full Ginsburg,” for Monica Lewinski attorney William Ginsburg, who was the first to accomplish the feat in 1998 — is rare, and typically occurs when significant national or international news events develop.

Kerry’s appearances will allow him to elaborate further on the evidence the White House has to support an attack and to outline possible steps forward.

On Friday, Kerry laid out the administration’s case for a military strike on Syria as the White House made public its evidence that Bashar Assad’s forces used chemical weapons.
