Quoted from the article:
Hager told On The Coast host Stephen Quinn that Rennie’s exact words, as recorded by his colleague and article co-writer Frances Bula, were:

Hager said after the article was published and Eby called a press conference demanding an investigation about what Rennie knew, Rennie called him up and said he was using the word “knew” in a figurative sense — and was instead merely speculating.
Bula could not be reached for comment. Hager said he stands by her work.
