Another description of the Washington, DC, elite: "quinta columna"

During the Spanish civil war, in 1936 a rebel general boasted that his forces would take Madrid because his four infantry columns would be joined by underground sympathizers already in the city. A newspaper reporter dubbed them as the "Fifth Column," and the term stuck. It can be aptly applied to the deep state, which subverts today's government while more open columns -- the media, faithless judges, cultural institutions -- openly attack the current administration.
