    let's have it

    What do the phrases in bold mean?

    Example:

    "This explanation is probably tenuous at best."
    "Let's have it."

    Thanks!

    1. The best you could say for this explanation is that it is tenuous. (It's not a convincing explanation).

    2. I'm going to take a stab at this, even though a bit of context would be useful.
    "Let's have it" = "Give it to me", or "Tell me the bad news".
