From The Panel, 4:08 pm on 16 August 2018

A forensic expert will be brought into the investigation into who leaked Simon Bridges' travel expenses.

National MPs have signed a waiver allowing access to their computer systems, as has the general manager of the Parliamentary Service. It seems it's just a matter of time before the person is caught.

The panelists, both journalists, weigh in on what they think of this investigation, and whether it will have a chilling effect on whistleblowers.
