This question already has an answer here:
- When should I use the subjunctive mood? 4 answers
An excerpt from the sub-headline of a recent article in the WSJ:
FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday explained why his agency recommended that Hillary Clinton not face criminal charges for her email arrangement while serving as Secretary of State.
I'm not a native English speaker but "not face" sounds wrong to me.
Why is it "not face charges" instead of "not faces charges" or "not to face charges"?
I don't consider this question a duplicate of "When should I use the subjunctive mood?". The question here asks to identify the grammatical rule. The other question asks about the usage of the grammatical rule.
