"Some of my concerns have been satisfied. I haven't made up my mind completely," McCain said.

He’s previously voiced concerns about Trump’s selection of the former Exxon Mobil Corp. CEO and has been critical of Tillerson’s ties to Russia and his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

When pressed Monday evening on whether he’ll support Tillerson going forward, McCain said, "Barely, yes."

"I think [Tillerson] is a good man,” he said. “"I just want him to have an understanding of the moral dimensions of Vladimir Putin in particular, and the slaughter that he has inflicted.”
