In the dispute about the Trump tweet that John
Dowd claims he wrote, one commentator said that it was unbelievable
that Dowd, as a lawyer who worked for the Dept of Justice, would have
written "pled" instead of "pleaded" guilty.
Is that a reasonable shibboleth, or is it conceivable that a US
lawyer might, in fact, have written "pled guilty"?
