breathe (something) to (someone)(redirected from not breathe to somebody)
breathe (something) to (someone)
To share information, often that which is supposed to be kept secret. Often used in the negative to encourage silence. And if you breathe a word of this to the cops, we'll come after you. I was told not to breathe news of this to anyone, but I knew I had to tell someone about such serious allegations.
