believing in more than one ruler

Question:

In Hil. Teshuvah 3:7 of the Mishneh Torah (in his listing of heretics – minim), the Rambam makes the following statement:

והאומר שיש שם מנהיג אבל הן שנים או יותר

“The one who says there is indeed a [God] directing [the universe], but that there are two or more.”

What is the basis of this ruling?

And where is it stated in earlier sources (pre-Rishonim) that only God has control over everything?

Please see sources below.

See Devorim 4:35 &39
