Chofetz Chaim Daily 30 Kislev 3:1 Asur to say rechilus even if 100 percent true, even not in front of ploni that youre talking about. Even if you know that you would say it in front of him. It can actually be a bigger sin to say it in front of ploni, because the listener will definitely believe it since you had the nerve to say it, and will also now hate ploni.
Chofetz Chaim Daily 1 Teves 3:2 Reuven may not say to Shimon, I heard you spoke rechilus about me. This would be rechilus about Levi who told him. 3:3 One may not tell anyone what Reuven did to Shimon. Besides for being LH, the news may spread and Shimon will find out. Asur to tell someone that ploni badmouthed his children/relatives because he will dislike ploni. 3:4 To tell someone that Reuven badmouthed Shimon so that he will be able to admonish Reuven, see Hilchos LH 10:6
