(CNN)On your next trip to Japan, check out the new all-digital museum, where the exhibits can really move you. Here's what else you need to know to Get Up to Speed and Out the Door. (You can also get "5 Things You Need to Know Today" delivered to your inbox daily. Sign up here.)

1. FBI

The White House denies it had anything to do with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe's surprise move to step down. President Trump's near-constant lambasting of him -- and other top FBI officials over the Russia investigation -- was no secret, but the White House insists Trump didn't push McCabe out. CNN's Chris Cillizza says this whole episode shows the President thinks anyone who hasn't shown loyalty to him is part of the "deep state."

    2. State of the Union

    President Trump has mostly played to his base during his first year in office. But tonight's State of the Union, his first, gives him a chance to reach out to the whole nation. It'll be a heavy lift. His approval ratings are stuck in the high 30s, and some Democratic lawmakers are so ticked at him they're skipping the speech. (Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg won't be there either.) The Dems and the GOP may want to hear different things from this President, but they both seem receptive to getting more info on his infrastructure proposals. So, at least that's a start at bipartisanship. CNN's coverage of the speech -- on all of our platforms -- starts at 5 p.m. ET.

    3. Ireland

    Abortion is a crime in Ireland's constitution. But the country's cabinet OK'd a referendum, to be held in May, that could relax its strict abortion laws. Ireland, with its mostly Catholic population, is among just 50 countries that allow abortions only when a woman's life is at risk. No exceptions are made for incest and rape. But the public's opinion on this stance seems to be changing. In a poll, 56% of Irish voters support changes to the law. A majority of lawmakers support that, too, according to the same poll.

    4. Cambodia

    Ten foreigners are in trouble in Cambodia. They're accused of violating the country's anti-porn laws after police raided a party. Cambodian authorities say the group -- made up of Britons, Canadians, Norwegians and a New Zealander -- was "preparing pornographic materials." Police sent out pics of what they say is the group simulating sexual positions (everyone is clothed). But those arrested reportedly said it's not them in the pictures, and they don't know why they were picked up. If convicted, they could face a year in jail.

    5. 5G network

    The FCC's chairman is not a fan of the Trump administration's inclination to nationalize a secure 5G network. And that's a problem because the proposal  would need the FCC's OK. The National Security Council told the White House the government should take over the network to fight Chinese hackers and other threats. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says these decisions should be driven by the market, not the government.
