Why I do not believe the Veterans Administration (VA) hydroxychloroquine study

I do not believe the Veterans Administration (VA) hydroxychloroquine study which seems to suggest that they drug increases the risk of death in Covid-19 patients.
They only reported on 70 deaths through April 11, 2020, but a graph on Stars & Stripes website shows that there were roughly 210 people who had died of this date.
It appears that the VA study left out two-thirds of the data.
Did they pick and choose the data for their study to try and make the drug look bad?
They also admitted to not including data from 17 female patients.
They also noted that “… hydroxychloroquine, with or without azithromycin, was more likely to be prescribed to patients with more severe disease… Thus, as expected, increased mortality was observed in patients treated with hydroxychloroquine, both with and without azithromycin.”
The lead author of the study (the last author listed on the paper) has been paid by eight (8) drug companies, and another author has been paid by four (4) drug companies.
And these are the corresponding authors, who people are supposed to correspond with, the two authors paid by the drug companies.
