The Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing an alleged scheme to pay women to accuse Special Counsel Robert Mueller of sexual harassment in a bid to discredit him, his office said on Tuesday.
Carr did not offer any additional details, but his rare public statement made clear that Mueller's office was taking the claims seriously.
Taub said the email struck her as weird and suspicious, and she immediately forwarded it to the special counsel's office.
Burkman posted on Twitter that he would reveal a sexual assault victim of Mueller's on Thursday.
He said he would have a news conference close to Washington on Thursday with one of the women who claimed she was sexually assaulted by Mueller in 2010, and that the other four women still needed to be vetted.
Burkman, who previously promoted conspiracy theories involving the 2016 death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, says he and his staff are now vetting additional accusations against Mueller.
Mueller has been under attack from Trump and his conservative allies since assuming control of the Russian Federation probe in 2017.

Either way, it appears that this failed attempt to leverage Israel's cyber reputation and Bar Refaeli's photo - even for fake "Talia" is more likely to bring Wohl himself down than it will have any effect on the Mueller probe. Taub reached out to the author, Natalie Bertrand, to share the email she received.
The plan unravelled across USA media on Tuesday, one day after Jacob Wohl, a 20-year-old conservative blogger, tweeted on Monday night that a "scandalous" story about Mr Mueller was about to break.
According to the Atlantic " s Natasha Bertrand, the special counsel's office became aware of the scheme after journalists informed them that they had learned of "a woman alleging that she herself had been offered roughly $20,000 by a GOP activist named Jack Burkman "to make accusations of sexual misconduct and workplace harassment against Robert Mueller'". A Surefire telephone number redirects to Wohl's mother's voicemail, NBC News reported. Taub told the Atlantic that said she never had any encounters with Mueller, though she sometimes comments on his probe on CNN.
Mr Burkman has promised bombshell revelations on several occasions previously, including claiming he had a witness to the state's alleged murder of Democrat staffer Seth Rich - a long-running Conservative conspiracy theory.
