How could I use "have it" ?
Hello to everyone ! I have a question, I am pretty confused with the use of "have it", for example; Would the sentence "Rumor has it he was drunk" mean the same as if I said "The rumor says that he was drunk" ?
Because I have always used the verb "to have" to express possession or obligation, and in the context of the first sentence I wrote for you it looks like "to have" has a use close in meaning with "to claim", or "to say", I am not sure....... by the way, I apologize in advance with you all for any grammatical mistake in all the things I have written !
Thank you so much !
