The FET is a pass gate.  When the FET is turned off, the inverter input
sees what was placed there the last time the FET was turned on.  But this
is only temporary.  The input capacitance will hold the value, but charge
will slowly leak away and the value will become corrupt.  In this case, it's
ok because the input to the FET is a clock, and it will refresh the inverter's
input node before it gets corrupted.  This is the same way DRAM works, BTW.
