    Re: Us vs We

    Then should it be "It's we who have done it." or "It's us who have done it."?

    Re: Us vs We

    I used the word "us" not we. I know neither may be correct, but which one is incorrect.

    This one. However, it is more common to see either this is us or that is us.

    Eg:
    V: Clara? V' asked
    C:This is me. C' replied

    I,You and we are generally used when followed by a relative clause.

    Eg:It's I who am to blame.It's you who are responsible for this .

    It's we who have done it.
