Is it premature?
The FBI's resources and expertise is massive. And the agency never does anything prematurely. Like the CIA, when it comes to intelligence, everything is about signature patterns, procedures and connections in the digital war, not proof. The best hacks always leave no proof behind, but everything but the very best hacks always leave a bit of hard evidence, and even more patterns and procedures.

Hard evidence is very relative when it comes to the internet, but hackers all have their signature methods, and the highest levels in internet security now are extremely advanced, far beyond the means of amature hackers to ever penetrate.

If the FBI suspects the Russians, you can be sure their timing of their announcement was completely intentional, and probably directed straight at the Russian intelligence division that hacked the DNC.

And those hackers are now very busy, trying to discover the spider traps the FBI left behind in their systems.

Americans build the internet and invented all the computers that access it. We still have more, vastly more, expertise than the rest of the world, and we have the most experience of all in cyber security, because we have been at it the longest, with more of the best minds in the world working for us.

The Russians are smart people, but their strength has always lied in adapting and advancing another nation's inventions, not creating their own.
They're good at catching up, but in the cyber world, we are much better at staying far ahead of the game, as that's what we are the best at. We have always been the best at staying ahead in every technological advance, ever since our earliest days as a nation. And we haven't stopped.

If the internet and computers were Russian inventions, we would still all be using ancient 32k computers, cell phones would not exist, and the digital revolution would be entering 1992 this year.

The latest:

"The hacker who claims to have stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee and provided them to WikiLeaks is actually an agent of the Russian government and part of an orchestrated attempt to influence U.S. media coverage surrounding the presidential election, a security research group concluded on Tuesday."

has your head been buried in the sand since Thursday?

And this makes no mention of DWS deliberately withholding DNC voter info from Sanders.

they deliberately sabotaged Bernie's campaign and conspired to make Clinton the nominee since March 2015

Opening an investigation is not proof.. so pathetic dems suddenly interested in emails.. only when they don't pertain to national secrets. Priorities?
