There is no deep state - just 2 million career civil servants who are an integral part of the constitutional balance of powers and by that design largely protected from political pressure, intimidation, and manipulation by partisan elected officials. They all take the same oath of office:

TITLE 5, PART III, Subpart B, CHAPTER 33, SUBCHAPTER II, 3331
Oath of office

An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: I, -, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
