A former Boston.com writer and editor who accused Brian McGrory, the editor of The Boston Globe, of harassment released a statement Friday sharply questioning the investigation that found McGrory did not violate the company’s anti-harassment policy.

“I am incredibly disappointed by The Boston Globe’s decision to ‘clear’ Brian McGrory,’’ Hilary Sargent said in the statement released through her lawyer. “I spent more than seven hours with the investigator over the course of two meetings, during which I identified how McGrory has acted inappropriately by text, email, and in person. Since May 20, when I tweeted a text exchange, the Globe has sought to protect itself and its editor and to punish me for speaking out.’’

Sargent’s statement came a day after Globe executives said that investigators they had hired to examine the matter had concluded that McGrory did not violate company policy.
