Chief Justice John Roberts & The Whistle Blower

Why wouldn’t Chief Justice John Roberts read the question posed by Senator Rand Paul during the impeachment trial of President Trump?

Senator Paul’s question according to his Twitter account was:

"Manager Schiff and counsel for the president, are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella when at the National Security Council together, and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings?"

This question does not accuse Mr. Ciaramella or Mr. Misko of being “the whistle blower.”

Why wouldn't Chief Justice Roberts utter either one of those names? Does Chief Justice Roberts know who the whistle blower is? If Chief Justice Roberts knows who the whistle blower is, who told him? House manager Rep. Adam ‘Piece Of’ Schiff (D-CA) claims he doesn’t know who the whistle blower is so someone else must have told him.

If Roberts wouldn’t read the question because he is trying to protect one or both of the people mentioned in the question from being identified as ‘the whistle blower,’ since when is it his job to do that? It is my understanding that a whistle blower isn’t guaranteed anonymity and it certainly isn’t Chief Justice Roberts job to protect the whistle blower's identity. Why all the secrecy?

I thought this ‘trial’ was supposed to be a search for the truth.....
