Chief Justice John Roberts rejected Sen. Rand Paul's impeachment trial question two days in a row.

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) tried again on Thursday to submit a question for the House managers and President Trump’s legal team that would publicly name the Ukraine whistleblower — but for a second time this week, Chief Justice John Roberts rejected Paul’s question.

"The presiding officer declines to read the question as submitted," Roberts said after silently reading Paul's submission.

According to RawStory, Paul promptly left the Senate to tweet about the incident:

Roberts reportedly first decided against reading Paul’s question aloud on the Senate floor on Wednesday, at which time the libertarian-leaning senator indicated he would try again on Thursday.

Paul wrote his question in its entirety on Twitter.
