Most of Hillary Clinton's explanations about her private email server have "proven to be false," says Benghazi Select Committee Chairmain Trey Gowdy, and that's the only reason he's still talking to the press about it.

"It was a very unusual email arrangement she had with herself," Gowdy said Sunday on ABC's"This Week.""Her decision to handle her email in this way has delayed our ability to do our job with respect to Benghazi, and it remains to be seen whether or not she placed national security information at risk."

Clinton last week turned over the server to the FBI, but says it has been completely wiped of information after she had her staff separate private and State Department emails. She has signed a statement that all work-related emails from her time as secretary of state have been turned over.

But Gowdy points out that at least 15 emails were not turned over. That is known because they were found when her friend and confidant Sidney Blumenthal turned over his own emails.

In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," Gowdy said the scrubbing of the server showed a "higher level of concealment" that seems suspicious for someone who supposedly only wanted to get rid of personal emails about her daughter's wedding and yoga classes.

Most people would "hit the delete button and ... forget about it," Gowdy said. "So the more energy she put into cleansing or wiping this server clean, I think your viewers should take or infer from that that perhaps there was something on there she really didn't want us to see."

Clinton has said the probe into her emails is political, but Gowdy said his committee isn't looking into her emails — it was simply through his Benghazi investigation that the private server became known.

The FBI and two inspectors general are in charge of the email probe, he said and both are apolitical. In fact, he said, both IG's were nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed by a Democrat-majority Senate headed by Nevada Sen. Harry Reid.

"She need not blame House Republicans," he said.
