## Can a subjective relative pronoun be omitted?

0

(1) It was you [ that ] I wanted to meet. (relative pronoun: objective) (2) It was you that told me to say so. (relative pronoun: subjective)

I understand you can definitely omit the objective relative pronoun that in sentence (1). Can you also omit the subjective relative pronoun that in sentence (2)? I do not think so. Could you help me clarify it? Thank you always.
