We need to change the Rule of Law so that you don't have the the right to face your accuser?

So, please elaborate on this "right".
I will give you a hypothetical. Say the police get an anonymous tip (for simplicity, we will call the "tipster" a "whistleblower") that a specific person at a specific address killed people and had like five bodies hidden in his attic. The police use that tip to get a warrant from a judge and go search the guy's property, and discover three bodies buried in the back yard. And, for simplicity, we will assume that these bodies have DNA evidence all over them, so it is obvious they were killed by the owner of the house. But, the police can never discover who the "whistleblower" is. What happens?
Without knowing who the "whistleblower" is, he cannot "face [his] accuser". When the police realize that they will not be able to discover who the "whistleblower" is, do they release the guy, give him his bodies back, and apologize for the inconvenience? Is that how you think our justice system works?
If you DON'T think this guy would get off scot-free due to his "accuser" being a "whistleblower", please explain how this is different than the situation Trump is in (such that you believe Trump should get off due to being unable to "face [his] accuser").
